Known for his chocolate boy looks and sweet-sounding music, Chris Brown is indeed a smooth operator when it comes to women and music.
An adept dancer with extravagant moves, this golden boy can swipe any girl off of her feet, with his liquid music and charming looks.
Even goddess Rihanna couldn’t resist the “Loyal” singer’s charm, dated him, inspite of his addiction and sensitive persona.
A versatile dancer with scintillating moves, Brown was often mistaken for Michael Jackson’s secret son, because of his admiration for the King of Pop apart from his innate dancing dexterity.
Inspired by MJ, Brown was a self taught singer and a dancer, whose talents were groomed first by the local church and then by his mother.
