Rapper Bow Wow insists his pal Chris Brown should be allowed to move on and continue his music career following his alleged fight with girlfriend Rihanna.
The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was charged by Los Angeles police with making criminal threats following the incident on 8 February (09), which is said to have left the Umbrella hitmaker needing hospital treatment.
Brown has subsequently lost a string of endorsement deals and seen his music banned from several radio stations' playlists.
But his close friend Bow Wow is adamant that the star's troubled personal life should not have a negative impact on his career.
He tells MTV.com, "I just want people to know that as entertainers, our job is to entertain. We're not perfect. We put our pants on the same way everybody else puts their pants on.
"I always like to put myself in people's shoes. I understand probably what he's going through by the whole world knowing what happened."
