10 Positive Things Chris Brown Should Do Once He's Out of Jail [Gif]

We're pretty sure this isn't how Chris Brown envisioned his 25th birthday.

After running out of excuses for his actions, he's staring his consequences in the face. Instead of popping bottles, his short temper's rippling affect landed him in jail during his quarter century celebration while he tries to clear up some of his legal issues. As fans on the outside await his release on the ninth, we hope he focuses on changing his unproductive ways for the sake of his career and, even more importantly, his well-being.

Once the singer steps back into normalcy, our fingers are crossed that we'll see a matured version of the "Run It" kid instead of the rehab booted, word spewing, social handle deleting star he's turned into recently. Although we can't force him to turn over a new leaf we can give him ideas on how to, no?

Here are 10 things Breezy should do to stay out of trouble!

Studio Time

He's been giving us number 1 hits while he was in rehab, then jail, and we hope he devotes his time to releasing the album he promised. As long as the studios steer clear of Frank Ocean, he should be able to go in and out without a hitch… or a stitch.

Drug Free

The only stimulant he should indulge in is air. Obviously any drug or alcohol-induced aid hasn't worked in his favor, so he should try the sober life for a change.

Dance DVD

Chris Brown is known for his moves. The performer should focus on creating his own line of dance videos to take up his free time.

Fashion Line

The face of 'The Kill' seems to be Karrueche, but it's a partnered venture. He should focus more on his collaborative line so we can see an official launch. This will keep him occupied, his creativity rolling and  fans pleased.

Vacation

Maybe instead of all the partying, he and Karrueche can go on a nice vacation. They can spend quality time to work on their confusing relationship while being low key and out of the public eye.

Charity Work

Volunteering for causes that are greater than him can turn any bad boy into a giving good guy.

Acting

It seems the only time Chris Brown stays out of trouble when he's committed to his acting career. Outside of music, acting is a positive sanctuary for him. He should start auditioning day 1 of his free days.

No Bad Gal

As much as we love Rihanna and their work together, they aren't a good duo. As long as they stay away from each other and out of the studio, we can expect both parties to live a better life.

Social Networks

No more Instagram, Twitter, Vine. Unfortunately, Chris takes what people write on a computer screen to heart and it sparks an angry rage.

Hair Color

He likes dying his hair, so he should work on a new line of hair dyes. Instead of constantly changing his own hair color he can help others.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
