R&B singer Chris Brown took to the internet on Thursday (05Mar09) to thank fans for their support - on the same day he was arraigned in court on assault charges.
The Kiss Kiss hitmaker appeared briefly in court in Los Angeles on Thursday to face two felony counts of assault and making criminal threats in relation to his 8 February altercation with girlfriend Rihanna.
He and his attorney Mark Geragos were granted a continuance to April (09), when Brown will hear if he faces jail time for the alleged beating of the Umbrella star.
But Brown found time in his day to post a message on his MySpace.com page, urging fans to vote for him in the upcoming Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards, in which he is nominated for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song for Kiss Kiss.
He wrote, "Hey fans, Vote for Chris on the Kids Choice Awards 2009 link provided below... Thank you for your support."
The Kids' Choice Awards take place on 28 March (09). The singer is due back in court on 6 April (09).
