Christopher Maurice Brown was born in Tappahannock, Virginia on May 5, 1989 to Joyce Hawkins, a daycare center director, and Clinton Brown, a corrections officer. He has one older sister, Lytrell Bundy. His parents divorced when he was young and his mother became a victim of domestic violence by her new boyfriend. Chris taught himself to sing and dance growing up watching his idols Usher, Michael Jackson. Chris has also cited his parents' collection of soul records as a major musical influence in his early years.
With his mother's help, Chris sought a recording contract in his early teens and eventually moved to New York to find representation. He recorded his debut album, Chris Brown, at the age of sixteen. His single "Run It!" was popular enough to make Brown the first male artist to debut at number one on the Billboard charts since Montell Jordan in 1995. In 2007, Brown released his second album, Exclusive, which debuted at number four on the Billboard charts. Exclusive also spawned his second Hot No. 1 hit on the Billboard charts, Kiss Kiss. Chris released his third album, Graffiti, in 2009. He released the album F.A.M.E. in 2011, which became his first album to top the Billboard 200. The album also earned him a Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. His fifth album, Fortune, was released in 2012, once again topping the Billboard 200. Brown released X, also in 2012, a collaboration album called Fan of a Fan: The Album in 2015, Royalty, also in 2015 and Heartbreak on a Full Moon in 2017. Brown's ninth studio album Indigo came out in 2019 and it became his third number-one album to debut on the Billboard 200.

On his retirement to Twistle Farm, an out-of-the-way little[Pg 3] estate upin the hill country near Shayton, Mr. Ogden, who was now a widower,determined, at least for the present, to educate his child himself. Andso it was that, at the age of nine, little Jacob was rather lessadvanced than some other boys of his age. He had not begun Latin yet,but, on the other hand, he read English easily and with avidity, andwrote a very clear and legible hand. His friend Doctor Bardly, theShayton medical man, who rode up to Twistle Farm very often (for heliked the fresh moorland air, and enjoyed a chat with Mr. Ogden and thechild), used to examine little Jacob, and bring him amusing books, sothat his young friend had already several shelves in his bedroom whichwere filled with instructive histories and pleasant tales. The youthfulstudent had felt offended one day at Milend, where his grandmother andhis Uncle Jacob lived, when a matronly visitor had asked whether hecould read.
Although Mrs. Ogden is hard at work in her kitchen, making a potato-pie,and although it is not yet ten o'clock in the morning, she is dressed inwhat in any other person would be considered rather an extravagantmanner, and in a manner certainly incongruous with her presentoccupation. It is a theory of hers that she is so exquisitely neat inall she does, that for her there is no danger in wearing any dress shechooses, either in her kitchen or elsewhere; and as she has naturally alove for handsome clothes, and an aversion to changing her dress in themiddle of the day, she comes downstairs at five o'clock in the morningas if she had just dressed to receive a small dinner-party. The clothesthat she wears just now have in fact done duty at past dinner-parties,and are quite magnificent enough for a lady at the head of her table,cutting potato-pies instead of fabricating them, if only they were alittle less shabby, and somewhat more in harmony with the prevailingfashion. Her dress is a fine-flowered satin, which a punster would atonce acknowledge in a double sense if he saw the farinaceousscatterings[Pg 7] which just now adorn it; and her cap is so splendid inribbons that no writer of the male sex could aspire to describe itadequately. She wears an enormous cameo brooch, and a long gold chainwhose fancy links are interrupted or connected by little glitteringoctagonal bars, like the bright glass bugles in her head-dress. Thepattern of her satin is occasionally obscured by spots of grease,notwithstanding Mrs. Ogden's theory that she is too neat and careful toincur any risk of such accidents. One day her son Isaac had ventured tocall his mother's attention to these spots, and to express an opinionthat it might perhaps be as well to have two servants instead of one,and resign practical kitchen-work; or else that, if she would be aservant herself, she ought to dress like one, and not expose her finethings to injury; but Mr. Isaac Ogden received such an answer as gavehim no encouragement to renew his remonstrances on a subject sodelicate. "My dresses," said Mrs. Ogden, "are paid for out of my ownmoney, and I shall wear them when I like and where I like. If ever myson is applied to to pay my bills for me, he may try to teach meeconomy, but I'm 'appy to say that I'm not dependent upon him either forwhat I eat or for what I drink, or for any thing that I put on." Theother brother, who lived under the same roof with Mrs. Ogden, and sawher every day, had a closer instinctive feeling of what might and mightnot be said to her, and would as soon have thought of suggesting anyabdication, however temporary, of her splendors, as of suggesting toQueen Victoria that she might manage without the luxuries of herstation. 2b1af7f3a8
