Chris Brown, 23, was raised by a deeply religious woman: his mother, Joyce Hawkins. So when Brown posted one of his Jesus paintings on Instagram -- comparing himself to Jesus Christ's crucifixion and resurrection -- I'm told his mother went ballistic.
In response to his mother's rejection, which hurt him deeply, and the public's constant criticism of every move he makes, Brown deleted his Instagram page yesterday. But not before, once again, blaming others for his problems.
"I would like to thank all my wonderful fans for letting me express my talents/art for you all."
"But social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons. So with that, I'm detaching myself from that world."
"Elevate yourself above the negative and if it doesn't work move on! I respect myself enough as well as my fans to wanna be great!"
Brown's Twitter page, which is maintained and updated by his record label, is still online.
