Tina Davis, manager to Chris Brown, recently revealed that the singer would no longer be doing any interviews so that he can focus on creating new music and performing. “We’re not trying to be rude, selfish or disrespectful to anyone in anyway. If people are going to judge anything, judge him for his talent,” said Davis. The singer is also in talks to perform at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony – marking the first time that he has performed at the show since the infamous “incident.” [BallerStatus]

In a recent interview with VIBE, Fabolous revealed that Loso’s Way 2: Rise To Power is slated for a Spring/early Summer release. “I’m very premature with the album as of yet, as of now, just grabbing up the beats and putting some ideas down.” Hopefully the album doesn’t suffer push-back treatment and actually meets the release deadline. Fabolous has been real low on the buzz meter lately. [VIBE]
