Chris Brown is on one of two covers for XXL magazine’s December 2012 issue. In the accompanying article the singer talks about his reputation as a hothead and player, his relationship with Rihanna, that nightclub fight with Drake – they’ve both been cleared by the way; and avoiding negativity on Twitter – ironically Chris recently left Twitter after vicious insults were hurled between him and some comedian named Jenny
On being labelled a hothead: “In the beginning, I used to be hot. I’m normal. I’m human, so if anybody says something that’s a lie, I’m numb to it. I’ve smartened up.”
On the nightclub fight with Drake: “A lot of people wanna know about the whole situation with me, Drake and Meek Mill. At the end of the day, I’m me, they’re them. They rap, I sing. Totally different caliber. I rap, I play around on mixtapes. But our words don’t collide as much as you’d think.”
On social media: “I haven’t been as mature and thought out in the past, so, me growing now, it’s showing my progression. I used to use my Twitter account to vent, but now I mostly use it for marketing and promotions. Even if the media asks me something, if it’s cool then it’s, ‘What’s up?’ But if it’s anything that’s too negative, I don’t care to respond.”
On his love life and being perceived as a player: “One thing people often want me to talk about is my public love life. When it comes to my love life, the perception seems as though I am a player. But that’s not true. Love is something I am still learning. It’s just an obstacle that I haven’t yet mastered. I think that’s my biggest hurdle in life. I use music or painting as my outlet to get through the confusion. I try to promote positivity and love.”
And check out a photo Rihanna shared of her and Chris in an intimate hug right after Chris thrilled fans at the Frankfurt stop of his Carpe Diem tour.
“fuckyopictures i dont wanna leave!!! Killed it tonight baby!!!” the singer posted along with the picture. In another posting she shared a photo that said, “Home is where the cock is.” Of course it is sweetie.
Gosh Karrueche Tran must feel like a starter wife every time she sees stuff life this.
That’s what happens when you decide to remain Ray Charles to the BS. Those are the breaks kid.
