Chris Brown recently chatted with the Guardian about his upcoming album, but the interview very quickly shifted from professional to personal when the R&B star was asked about his childhood and the infamous assault on Rihanna.
When asked if he really lost his virginity at the age of 8 to a girl who was 14 or 15, Chris said, "Yeah, really. Uh-huh. It's different in the country." Brown added that he grew up with a handful of older male cousins and stumbled across porn at a very early age. Chris said:
- "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. 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 then describes "the Rihanna incident" as "probably the biggest wake-up call for me. I had to stop acting like a little teenager, a crazy, wild young guy." But when asked if that's how he thinks of himself when he looks back at that point in his life he says, "No, not at all ... Cos 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."
So what does he have to say about a judge hitting him with an additional 1,000 hours of community service for failing to complete his original sentence of six months of community labor? Chris whines:
- "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."
Because he's not being a baby or anything...
