It doesn't rank up there with phrases like "if it doesn't fit, you must acquit." But when Chris Brown tried to speak for himself during a hearing in a Los Angeles courtroom yesterday, he got a gentle rebuke from his own attorney.

The hearing was on whether Brown should remain on supervised probation. And at one point, Brown raised his hand and started to ask to address the court about his upcoming schedule.

Attorney Mark Geragos interrupted, telling Brown: "I don't dance, you don't talk." Brown chuckled somewhat nervously as the judge said she might enjoy seeing Geragos dance in court.
