Should Justin Bieber Team Up With Chris Brown? (POLL)

Justin Bieber is branching out lately, sporting mustaches real and fake, flirting with Selena Gomez and diving into a collaboration with country trio Rascal Flatts. Biebs’ evolution will continue with another musical meeting of minds, this time with Chris Brown, an artist still reeling from scandal.

After completing domestic violence classes stemming from his assault on Rihanna, Chris announced via Twitter over the weekend that he and Biebs “got a BANGER/SMASH record for all the fans out there at the top of the NEW YEAR!” (Judging from the additional exclamation points edited here, Chris is pretty psyched.)

Is it a good idea for squeaky-clean Baby Biebs to collaborate with Chris, whose career is still struggling almost two years after his much-publicized, much-maligned incident with Rihanna? The “Forever” singer is already en route to a comeback with the new single, “Deuces,” and considering Biebs used to cover Chris’s songs back in the day, he may be just the nice guy to take a chance on his comeback.
