15 February 2012, 16:50
The 'Beautiful People' star hits back at people who have criticised his Grammys comeback.
Chris Brown has defended himself following criticism of his Grammy Awards performance last weekend.
The singer performed new song 'Turn Up The Music' and previous hit 'Beautiful People' at the ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday (15th February), as well as winning Best R&B Album for 'F.A.M.E.'.
Despite receiving a positive response from the audience at the Staples Center, Chris's performance received a mix reaction from people who felt he should not have been invited to the Grammys three years after he assaulted ex-girlfriend Rihanna before the same ceremony.
In a message that has since been deleted, Chris apparently wrote on Twitter: "HATE ALL U WANT BECUZ I GOT A GRAMMY Now! That's the ultimate F**K OFF!"
He is also alleged to have said: "Strange how we pick and choose who to hate!
"Let me ask u this. Our society is full of rappers (which I listen to) who have sold drugs (poisoning). But yet we glorify them and imitate everything they do.
"Then right before the worlds eyes a man shows how he can make a Big mistake and learn from it, but still has to deal with day to day hatred! You guys love to hate!!! But guess what???"
According to Radar Online, a source claims an assistant of Chris wrote the messages, and was ordered by the 'Fortune' singer to take them down.
Chris Brown releases his new album 'Fortune' in April.
Meanwhile, the star has today (15th February) unveiled a behind the scenes look at the video for his new single 'Turn Up The Music'.
