Chris Brown has been making the promotional rounds in support of his forthcoming release X and spoke of his desire to possibly record a country album during an interview with Charlotte radio station Power 98.
Brown stated that music was for everyone and he did not want to limit himself. He felt that to separate music by genre was a way of segregation.
"I want to always be able to do any kind of music I want. When I get older I might want to do a country album. Next year, I might want to do all hip-hop album or alternative album," he said. "Just making sure that anything that goes down, showing my audience or showing people that have a creative mind that you can do anything you want, it's just about believing and loving what you're doing in a positive way."
He also joked about being regarded as a rapper, saying, "I don't know if the world is ready for Chris Brown: The Rapper."
As for the album that he has put his time and energy into, he declared that some songs would change lives. He also said that the late Michael Jackson heavily influenced him and the album. Fine China, the lead single from X, borrows from the King of Pop's music and famous dance moves.
"Michael is one of my greatest influences," Brown said. "The way I look at everything I approach is... I wouldn't say a Michael Jackson standpoint, but I would say, 'Would he like it? Would he approve of it?' I looked up to him as a kid for every dance, for everything."
X is due to be released this summer.

BEST: ‘Law & Order: SVU:’ 1999-Present; One of two successful spin-offs from the 20-year success that was ‘Law & Order,’ SVU is still going strong in its own 15-year-run and doesn’t look to be slowing anytime soon. The police procedural about a special squad of detectives who investigate sexually-based offenses in New York City has had major cast shake-ups in recent years (lead actor Christopher Meloni left in 2011, and Richard Belzer left the show in 2013), but it is still captivating audiences as they adjust to the newest detectives on the force. The show also runs in syndication on several other channels, meaning fans rarely have to worry about not keeping caught up and staying with the addicting series.
