Chris Brown debuted a startling new hair look via Twitter early Sunday morning.
"Look at me now," the "Yeah 3X" singer, 21, wrote beneath a new self-taken pic -- revealing platinum-blond hair. About 12 hours later, Brown was shocked that his hair switch-up made news.
"It's crazy how me changing my hair makes CNN!! isn't there more important news!! Just proved my point!!!" he wrote.
Brown drops his fourth album F.A.M.E. March 22.
Last Tuesday, a judge downgraded a restraining order barring contact between Brown and his ex Rihanna, whom he assaulted in February 2009. The exes are now allowed to contact one another, provided Brown does not "harass, annoy or molest" the "Only Girl" singer, 22.
As part of a August 2009 ruling in the assault case, Brown is serving five years probation and completed court-mandated domestic violence classes in December 2010.
