Chris Brown Talks Drake Beef, Grammys And His Relationship With Karrueche & Rihanna
Anytime Chris Brown sits down for an interview, you can be sure that he’s going to say something very interesting or very crazy. Well in a recent radio interview, Brown talked about why he falls out with Karrueche publicly, why he went in on Tamar Braxton and Adrienne Bailon, and people continuously bringing up his past. Check it out.
IF HIS SOCIAL MEDIA RANTS GET HIM INTO TROUBLE WITH THE JUDGE PRESIDING OVER HIS PROBATION
I wouldn’t talk about the judge because I’m not off probation all the way. So I would say that I don’t think it would make a difference. I think even if I was at church every day, it would be something to talk about. I think how media has kind of–not to say targeted me because I’m not here to be like “Woe is me,” that’s bullshit. But I feel like the only thing that’s highlighted in my career over the last five years is my negativity. Only thing I can do is put my positive music out and do what I do and be great at that. That’s the only thing that has been successful is the music. People can’t deny an undeniable hit.
THE PERCENTAGE OF BLAME HE WOULD PUT ON HIMSELF AND THE MEDIA FOR HIS IMAGE
It’s 50/50. I’m not going to sit there and say I’m a saint. But I definitely say that a lot of the choices I made in the past reflect now. So now, I don’t have the benefit of the doubt. “Oh, Chris didn’t do it.” People be like, “No, he did it!” It’s because of my past decisions.
WHY CHRIS & KARRUECHE ALWAYS FALL OUT PUBLICLY
A lot of the times, I’m impulsive. I don’t have no filter. Whether it’s a relationship issue, whether it’s her or me, we don’t know how to communicate sometimes, to be able to be like, let’s talk about this before we say some sh*t and then we’re back together next week. Then you give everybody else the option to depict our relationship and set their own basis for how we live our life. It’s better for growth and maturity when you communicate and talk through a relationship and understand each other. I’d rather do that and not make my stuff as public because it’s not anybody’s opinion! And people’s lives is sh*t so they can’t comment on mine anyway.
AGREEING WITH KANYE SAYING THAT KARRUECHE PROBABLY COULDN’T DO BETTER THAN BROWN, AND BRINGING UP RIHANNA
I feel what he meant by it. I’m not saying that as an arrogant statement…there’s nowhere else to go. Even with ol’ girl. The first one. Who else she gon’ go to? That’s nice, [Leonardo DiCaprio] is a good choice, but who else in this game she gon’ go to? Some corny singing rapper? You know what I’m saying? What she do now, I got respect for her and whatever her choice is, but at the time, not to toot my own horn, but who’s hotter than me?
WHERE THINGS STAND WITH RIHANNA NOW
We’re cordial. I respect her space. She respects mine. Too much talking leads to “Hey, what you doing? What’s up? What’s up? We gon’ hang out?” It just complicates things.
ON PEOPLE BRINGING UP HIS ABUSIVE PAST
It’s not even about, “Oh, he doesn’t show any remorse.” How much remorse am I going to show? It’s been damn near almost 10 years. I just feel like, if you not going to get over it, you’re never going to get over it.
WHY HE LASHED OUT AT TAMAR AND ADRIENNE BAILON
“Mine is a roast. If you want to say something about me, let me just joke. But I don’t say the stuff that’s like, “Okay, yeah, he got her.” I say the stuff that’s going to hurt and feel like someone took a dagger to your veins. I’m getting smart now because I’m realizing that when people are in panic mode and they need to sell something or they need to get ratings, it’s “Let’s poke at Chris Brown because he’ll bite on it. He’ll say something and we’ll get a reaction out of him because guess what? It’s going to bring our ratings through the roof because he’s going to go all the way and then he’s going to look like the bad guy and we’re going to win.” I’m starting to realize it. It’s still fun to me because I like to entertain.”
ON THE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PSA AT THE GRAMMYS
“I left before that came on. I didn’t even know until I looked at my Instagram and Twitter. My thing is, that’s great. If you’re going to focus on that, that’s great. But also talk about Mike Brown. Talk about all these injustices going on as far as politically, and all the things that’s wrong with our country. Don’t use the music to just talk about domestic violence, because ya’ll don’t talk about it on nothin’ else…Then you got other people in the crowd that are artists, I don’t know half these people because I don’t listen to their music, but I saw little tweets like, “Well then you shouldn’t have let Chris Brown come to the awards.” To me, that’s a slap in my face, because that has nothing to do with you. If you are in a totally different lane and you’re doing whatever you’re doing, your opinion shouldn’t be that valid. You should worry about what the hell you’re doing. Old Chris Brown would have come over and smacked you in your mouth, but the new one is like, “Cool, tell me how to get into them pearly gates since you’re perfect. I need to know how to get on that VIP list because I want to get there too.”
IF HE’S READY TO SETTLE DOWN WITH KARRUECHE
“I’m too young for that. I can deal with babies. That’s different. I don’t follow the certain formula…I’m cool having a baby. The marriage thing? I’m not cool with giving you half of what I earned all my life. Prenups, all that, that’s cool. But in our generation, marriage has been distorted to our generation of people because it hasn’t worked. The older generation, it worked…as our culture, generations from being teenagers to now, it’s all about the turn up. I’m not promoting the turn up, but that’s what our mentality is. So it’s all about what’s hot at the time. Those values aren’t instilled in us right now. We don’t have leaders to instill that. I’m particularly not going to be that leader because I’m going to turn up with you [laughs]. As I progress and find out who I am more, when I’m more in my 30s, then maybe.”
WHAT HE THINKS OF PEOPLE SAYING HE COULD HAVE BEEN THE NEXT MJ, BUT BLEW IT
“The funny thing is, I am on that level. I’m not saying I am Beyoncé and Michael Jackson. If you know you’re great, you know you’re great. When people say, “He’s supposed to be that,” it’s because they know I am that.
I can’t look back and say, “I wish I could have done it this way,” because I’ll be mad at my life because I didn’t get it to the fullest potential. All I can do now is say, “You know what, I’m just going to to kill everything I do.”
Nicki Minaj’s Ex Safaree Samuels Has Moved Onto K. Michelle’s Booty
You gotta hand it to Safaree Samuels, he knows what he likes — because TMZ has learned he has moved on from Nicki Minaj to a new singing booty queen … K. Michelle.
According to our K. Michelle sources, she and Samuels (who did not take the breakup with Nicki well) have been getting much closer lately … talking and texting every night.
We’re told the duo spent two hours together in the VIP area of NYC club Stage 48 on Valentine’s Day — and Samuels followed up this week by sending a bouquet of sunflowers … her favorite. Our sources say they’re not official, meaning exclusive … just yet — but this video K. Michelle posted of herself twerking to Safaree’s new song has to count for something!
Nick Gordon Calls Out Bobby Brown During Angry Twitter Rant
Bobbi Kristina’s condition has yet to improve after being found face-down in a bathtub. She’s suffered major brain damage and is relying on the prayers and support of family to bring her through. Her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, has yet to visit Bobbi, as her father, Bobby Brown, has forbid him from seeing his daughter.
According to TMZ, Brown claims he offered Gordon the chance to see Bobbi Kristina, but he declined to meet the terms set by Bobby and was therefore denied. While no one knows for sure what these terms were which he neglected to meet, many believe the singer is insisting Gordon speak to police, as Bobbi Kristina had visible injuries when her body was found, with Gordon being the prime suspect.
Gordon’s attorney’s advised him to reject Bobby Brown’s conditions in order to visit his girlfriend. Nick’s lawyer claims he’s attempted to meet privately with Bobby to discuss visitation, rather than go through him, but Brown won’t have it.
Nick is now airing out Brown on Twitter, saying he knows if Bobbi Kristina just heard his voice, she’d wake up.
