    Chris Brown isn't singing a happy tune right now. In fact, the guy is hinting that he may actually give up singing altogether.

    The Grammy winner took to Twitter on Tuesday and seemed to suggest that he would soon be retiring from music.

    "Don't worry mainstream America. After this X album, it'll probably be my last album," Brown wrote.

    Matt Damon reveals what it was like shooting a huge action scene at the world's second largest garbage dump in Mexico for his new sci-fi thriller, "Elysium." He also shares his diet and exercise secrets for bulking up to play Max in "Elysium."

    He later added, "Being famous is amazing when it's for ur music and talent. I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when I was 18. I'm cool & over it!"

    The latter tweet was no doubt in reference to the 2009 assault on Rihanna.

    Brown's comments come just one day after he turned himself in and was booked in connection with his on-going hit-and-run case.

    According to the booking report obtained from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, the singer arrived at 2:40 p.m. on Monday and was released less than an hour later.

    Last month, a judge revoked Brown's felony probation stemming from the 2009 assault and set a probation violation hearing for Aug. 18.

    Meanwhile, X, Brown's sixth studio album, is reportedly scheduled to drop on Aug. 20.
