Chris Brown happy with sticker campaign

Chris Brown is glad he was targeted by anti-domestic violence campaigners last week (ends16Sep12), insisting a sticker stunt has helped to publicize his new album.

Mystery activists entered a store in London and secretly placed notices declaring, "WARNING: DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM! THIS MAN BEATS WOMEN" on the Kiss Kiss hitmaker's new disc, Fortune.


But the stunt has met with approval by the singer, who insists it has been great publicity.


A representative for Brown says, "We were as surprised as anyone when the stickers appeared. Obviously someone must have snuck in to put them on a handful of CDs... I guess they got their point across pretty effectively - with widespread coverage around the world, though, by the same token, quite a few more people now know there's a new Chris Brown album out."
