Chris Brown Talks About Losing His Virginity At 8, Growing Up Too Fast In The Music Industry & New Album ‘X’

Chris Brown

R&B/Pop singer Chris Brown recently did an interview with UK-based site the Guardian. The Grammy Award winning multi-platinum artist spoke to writer Decca Aitkenhead at a recording studio in Los Angeles and gave a candid interview. Breezy revealed that he indeed grew up in the public eyes too fast; losing his virginity at 8-year-old and his career plans after he releases his new album, X this November. Below are some highlights:

[Side Note]: I ONLY included the positive highlights because the writer focused too much on the negative side of Chris Brown and tried to agitate him. 

On defining himself, who he is and what he does:

Well, I would say I’m an inspirational guidelines book. You can take my life story or scenarios or songs and relate to them, and apply them to your everyday life. You know, whether it be personal or musical, I just think I’m a walking art piece, just a ball of creativity.”

On losing his virginity at 8 to a 15-year-old girl:

“Yeah, really. Uh-huh.” He grins and chuckles. “It’s different in the country.” Brown grew up with a great gang of boy cousins, and they watched so much porn that he was raring to go. “By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I’m saying? Like, girls, we weren’t afraid to talk to them; I wasn’t afraid. So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it. You can be the best at it.” (Now 24, he doesn’t want to say how many women he’s slept with: “But you know how Prince had a lot of girls back in the day? Prince was, like, the guy. I’m just that, today. But most women won’t have any complaints if they’ve been with me. They can’t really complain. It’s all good.”)

On his image from when he first came out to now:

 “The only thing that’s probably changed for me is just the facial hair a little bit. When I first came out, it was more of a young, warm, clean look. Very clean, very Disney.”

On growing up too fast in the public eyes and does he regret fame coming early:

Honestly, where I’m from, probably not. I think me being able to travel from the small town I was from, me already having a good IQ, and you know being intelligent, and regular stuff, I just had to learn more and more of the street life, you know, how to manoeuvre around a room full of wolves.”

On dealing with the naysayers:

You know, whether it be naysayers, people that won’t say, ‘Hey, I like that.’ But as far as me being young, like, I don’t regret it, I love it, being able to accomplish my dreams at an early age. That’s just showing the kids that’s coming up in sixth or seventh grade, I can do this. If I really stick to it, I can do it. ‘Chris was my age when he did it.'”

Chris Brown For JET Magazine, Talks About His Issues With Jay-Z, The Media & Rihanna/Karrueche Drama

JetCoverUPC_zpsb14689f5

Singer and actor Chris Brown is scheduled to release his sixth studio album, X this November 2013. He is currently covering the October 14th issue of JET magazine. Inside, the Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum selling artist talks about his issues with Jay-Z, the media, and Rihanna/Karrueche drama. Below are some highlights:

On his beef with the media

“The media is full of yellow journalism. A lot of things I say, they will flip it. Instead of them getting off on all the positive stuff that I do, they will bring out the negative and draw out that story.”

On his beef with Jay-Z

“No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that [Jay Z] stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass.”

On Trayvon Martin

“I identify with Trayvon 100 percent as far as living in 2013 and still dealing with blatant racism. This generation is so used to racism that it’s normal; we don’t care. We aren’t on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as ni**as.”

On controlling his anger issues

“You have to go through the struggle before you can get to the good part. I don’t try to lash out at people, or be as mad or impulsive as I used to be.  I got to the point where it’s only so much you can take from the master, you feel me? I’ve taken my fair share of lashings.”

On his relationships with Karrueche Tran & Rihanna

“Relationships are the most difficult part. That’s why I was honest with those two girls and I put out that video. My ex and I broke up because of the “situation” and she had moved on. I fell in love with another girl. Then my ex came back, so it was like, ‘What is a man to do?’  I told them both the truth. I didn’t do the sucker role.” 

The issue hits newsstands on September 23.

Pictorial: Chris Brown’s ‘New Slave’ Karrueche Tran For Crooks & Castles 2013

7-Crooks-N-Castles-Spring-2013-karrueche-tran

Who is Karrueche Tran? Exactly! Her 15 minutes of fame is almost over. Somehow Chris Brown’s ‘New Slave’ is featured in fashion brand Crooks & Castles 2013 lookbook. The so-called fashion designer (besides Chris Brown, who’s her clients?) modeled in various pieces including tees, jerseys, tanks, pants, hats & more from the LA based brand. Whatever happened to Tran’s clothing line, The Kill? Brown is only keeping Tran because she is his tax write-off. I guess when a guy provides a female with a luxury lifestyle; she will stay with him regardless if he mistreat her or not.
