A spokesman for the 19-year-old entertainer said, “Chris very much appreciates the support of his fans and the honor they have paid him in the way of nominations for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song. Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding the incident last month has shifted the focus from the music to whether he should be allowed to be among those nominated. While Chris would like to speak to his fans directly about this and other issues, pending legal proceedings preclude his doing so at this time. Once the matter before him has been resolved, he intends to do so.”
His girlfriend Rihanna was also honored with 2 nods from the 2009 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. The “Umbrella” singer is up for Favorite Song of the Year for her single “Don’t Stop the Music” and Favorite Female Singer award.
