Chris Brown has partnered up with contemporary artist Ron English to create a new line of toy figurines he's calling the Dum English astronaut series.
"We were talking about what it was like to be famous," English tells the Miami New Times. "It seems like something that's very attractive. But it can also be very isolating in ways."
The space figures, which have a skeletal face with star-shaped eye sockets and gold teeth, are supposed to represent the pitfalls of stardom and the loneliness it can bring.
"An astronaut doesn't go to space just for himself or his family. The whole country is behind him," English says.
The figures will be sold at specialty stores like Kid Robot. This toy series is just the latest in Breezy and English's collaborations, as the artist also created the cover art for Brown's 2011 album F.A.M.E.
