The singer is also up for four Billboard Music Awards, including Top Male Artist.

We’re guessing he won’t be performing his recently released remix of Kanye West’s “Theraflu,” in which Brown freestyles, “Don’t f*** with my old b****es … like a bad fur … every industry n**** done had her.”  

He continues, “Trick or treat like a pumpkin … just to smash her.”

The song reportedly led Rihanna to unfollow her ex-boyfriend on Twitter. But it probably won’t cost him any awards on May 20, since the reporting period for album sales, airplay and touring — some of the elements that decide Billboard Music Awards finalists — is February 28, 2011 through March 1, 2012.
