Few things work quite as well as the brilliant PR-adorable-new-pet swerve when celebrities need to quickly change the conversation. And it looks like Chris Brown took a cue from all of these people and got himself a snugly new canine friend.

There's nothing like a baby shar-pei to help [the world] get over a break-up.  Oh! And to help announce the name of your new album: The puppy AND the album are named "X".

Breezy posted a vid on his website featuring footage of cuteness in action. D'AAAAAAWWWWW!! In the clip Brown tells us:

"Right now I'm just chilling with this little guy. His name's X."

"This is also my album title so make sure you go get it. It's coming out real soon."

The singer's latest single, "They Don't Know," (a posthumous collab with Aaliyah) is set to drop tomorrow. Click here for to see a picture of darling lil' X and a shirtless Breezy (a.k.a. the cover art for the new single).
