Chris Brown is doing press again, but this time he seems to be level headed and mature. The singer has been fairly open about his recent behavior, his beef with Drake and Frank Ocean and his relationship with Rihanna. He opened up to Hot 97 DJ Angie Martinez today and we have the highlights!
According to our friend NecoleBitchie:
Chris Brown stopped by The Angie Martinez Show where he maturely talked about his former relationship with Karrueche, the controversial Law & Order SVU episode inspired by his relationship with Rihanna and why he chose to turn down an interview with Oprah.
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 learnt 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.
