Chris Brown is on the promo trail for his new album “X,” which means he is going to play nice with the media. Maybe that was harsh of me. It is very possible that Chris is really just maturing into the man we all hoped he’d be. But, it’s just a little odd that it’s coincidentally happening circa the forthcoming release of his new project. And, the fact that last year he banned all media interviews.
Brown smiled and giggled as he was interrogated by “Today Show” host Matt Lauer, leading people to believe in the “Sweet Love” singer’s potential again! And, if you think it was by luck, he didn’t get up and toss a chair through the window, you may be surprised to know, he visited the “Angie Martinez Show” the night before, where he captured the hearts of haters with the same charm that probably captured Rihanna!
Breezy was more than willing to answer every question thrown his way. From the mention of his domestic violence issues and love triangles, Breezy opened up in a way we’ve never seen before. Keep reading to see what he had to say about his relationship with Rihanna, beef with Drake and turning down Oprah!
“We’re fine. I think in the actual interview they tried to depict that [we broke up]. I think they [got that] from an interview from like a year ago. Yeah, we’re fine,” Breezy confirmed to Lauer. “I think it’s just me proving myself once again. Knowing that what I did was wrong, and never doing it again. So as far as me and (Rihanna) are concerned, she knows my heart, and I know her heart. So I’m not really focused on the negative. Everything about it is positive for me. I did my 52 weeks of counseling and learned that it was absolutely wrong. It was counseling, a 52 week program. Every Monday in Virginia. I remember going and just sitting in there [thinking], ‘Why did I do what I did?’ And really wanting to just get help.”
UP NEXT: INTERVIEW WITH ANGIE MARTINEZ
Interview with Angie Martinez
On why he was so open and honest about loving two girls at the same time
I wanted to be more of a man. Me being young, even with relationships in the past, I did a lot of lying, I did everything just to make sure nobody gets hurt in the process. I just don’t feel it’s necessary anymore in my life. Nobody can hate me for being honest. I had to just be brutal. I told both of them that the video was coming out. It’s never an easy situation to tell another person that you still love another person, so that’s kinda difficult. But our friendship, me and Karrueche’s friendship, is still cool. We’re still good friends.
On his beef with Drake
Me and him don’t see eye to eye. We are never going to see eye to eye, so you go your way, I’ma go mine.
On whether Rihanna has beef with Drake
I don’t really try to talk about him when I’m around [Rihanna]. I just lay the pipe.
On his beef with Frank Ocean
I think it’s a lot of strategies people try to use when they’re up for awards. It’s a sympathy role. I don’t have to go that route. I just do my music, do my thing. For him, it’s whatever. Love your music, bro. Have fun.
On his thoughts on the “Law & Order” episode inspired by his relationship with Rihanna
I didn’t even watch it because I feel like it was ignorance. I feel like they were reaching. It’s four years later, you want to bring ratings and boost up a story
On why he turned down an interview with Oprah
I’ve been invited [but] I just say no at this point. I’ll go to people that I’m comfortable with. I never wanna be in a situation where I feel like I’m attacked or I’m gonna be trapped. I think I’m paying for whatever I’ve done and I’ve learned from it and I’m moving forward, so I only want to surround myself with the people that are about positivity.
On how he would like to be remembered
I want to be a legend. I think my [overall goal] now is just to make my mark in the game as just an established artist and just a real artist and a culture ambassador. I feel like I’m just getting successful. I think the hard part is over. I went through the obstacles that God kinda made me go through so I could be humble.
