Chris Brown appeared shocked when his name was announced for artist of the year at Sunday night’s American Music Awards in Los Angeles. “I probably was shocked like everybody else,” Brown told reporters backstage at the Nokia Theater. “I know everybody was like, ‘Huh?’ I thought Coldplay should have genuinely won that award, but I’ll take it!”
Brown was also named favorite male artist in both the soul/R&B and pop/rock categories. Meanwhile, his rumored girlfriend Rihanna won soul/R&B and pop/rock categories on the female side, beating Alicia Keys in both races. Keys also won a pair of awards for favorite album in the soul/R&B and pop/rock categories. Check out more details from Reuters.
