Bad boy Chris Brown is getting deep and real in a way that he hasn’t done in awhile. In a recent interview with The Guardian, Chris is heard revealing parts of his life, that as of late many have wondered how he’s grown since the controversial incidents.
In a recent and lengthy but very revealing interview with The Guardian, Chris Brown spoke candidly about his album, not having a violent history in his past relationships, anger management classes being sexist, Drake and Frank Ocean using him to help their music, his infamous neck tattoo, and more.
The shady Guardian interviewer described a teenageBreezy as the former “crown prince of American R&B, with a pop princess girlfriend, Rihanna, on his arm,” and emphasizes how ”the news that he’d attacked her and been arrested sent the country into a degree of shock.”
Check out excerpts from the interview below.
On the judge adding 1,000 additional community service hours instead of jail time as a “compromise” after he was accused of cheating on his time reported:
“But that’s not a compromise! Community service, that sh*t is a b**ch. I’ll be honest – and you can quote me on that – that is a m*therf**ker there. For me, I think it’s more of a power trip for the DA. I can speak freely now, because I don’t really care what they say about it, but as far as, like, the 1,000 extra hours they gave me, that’s totally fricking bananas.”
On whether or not he thought the court ruling seemed “vindictive:”
“Oh, absolutely. They want me to be the example. Young black kids don’t have the fairer chances. You can see Lindsay Lohan in and out of court every day, you see Charlie Sheen, whoever else, do what they want to do. There hasn’t been any incident that I started since I got on probation, even with the Frank Ocean fight, the Drake situation, all those were defence modes. It’s just that people know if they push a button, it’ll make more news than their music. Attaching themselves to me, good or bad, will benefit them.”
On his anger management class (after saying it did help him to learn to keep his temper):
“I think the actual class I went to was a little bit sexist. It was beneficial because it made me cater more to a woman’s thoughts and a woman’s needs, and how to handle situations. But the class itself, no disrespect to the class, but the class itself only tells you ‘you’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re wrong.’”
On how he views his altercation with Rihanna:
“Probably the biggest wake-up call for me. I had to stop acting like a little teenager, a crazy, wild young guy.”
On if that’s how he’d describe himself at the time he attacked Rihanna:
“No, not at all. Cause you can talk with all my girls that I did mess with before, and it’s never been a violent history. But at the same time, I learned from it, and it was almost like… I wouldn’t say it happened for a reason, but it was something to trigger my mind to be more of a mature adult. To handle myself in situations, don’t throw tantrums, don’t be a baby about it.”
