Chris Brown: Losing His Virginity At Age 8, Loyalty And Positive Legacy

Check out excerpts from Chirs Breezy’s latest interview with UK-based The Guardian

Chris Brown

He lost his virginity at age 8 (to a 15-year-old girl) 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.”)

He feels as though his DA used him as an example Community service, that sh-t is a b-tch. I’ll be honest – and you can quote  me on that – that is a motherf-cker 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.

[…] 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 defense modes. People think I  just  walk around as the aggressor, this mad black guy, this angry, young,  troubled  kid, but I’m not. I’m more and more laid-back. 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.

Anger Management classes helped him cater more to a woman’s  needs 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.

Chris keeps his gang of homies around because they are  loyal They were there when nobody else was there, when I was at my  lowest. The people that really cared, that’s who I hold dearest. And I root for  the underdog, so I’m around the guys that… well, my friends aren’t the guys  that  society would label perfect. People kind of, like, look nervous when I’m  going  to walk in with all my friends. And I’m not even a rapper, I’m a  singer,” he points out proudly. I ask if he likes knowing that people feel  nervous. “No,  it’s just what generally attracts me to my friends. I’m not going  to stop being  your friend because somebody doesn’t approve of it. That would  be, like, almost  being phoney to myself.”

X may be his last album because people tend to buy singles  more than albums You can blame it on downloads, but the numbers  are  what they are. After this, maybe I’ll release a single every few months, or  release a song; you’re still going to hear my music and videos.” His single  sales still run into millions, he says, adding crossly, “But people won’t  bring that up because of the album sales.”

The Rihanna incident was a wake-up call, but also the first time he’s  ever been violent [The Rihanna incident was] probably the biggest  wake-up call for me. I had to stop acting like a little teenager, a crazy, wild  young guy.” But when I ask if that’s how he thinks of himself when he looks  back  at that time, he snaps back, “No, not at all” as if the description had  been  mine and not his. “Cos you can talk with all my girls that I did mess with  before, and it’s never been a violent history.” Then he switches again: “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.”

He hopes to leave a positive legacy I would really like  to mean something to the world, instead of me just being this fungus.” Hang on  a  minute: fungus? “Yeah, like the decay of society. I don’t want to be the  decay  of society, I’d like to be the uplifting  part
