Chris Brown Talks Rihanna, Drake, and His Growth as a Person
XXL Magazine spoke with artist Chris Brown who says he has “smartened up” about rumors of his life including talk he is still dating Rihanna.
Regarding his love life: “One thing people often want me to talk about is my public love life. When it comes to my love life, the perception seems as though I am a player. But that’s not true. Love is something I am still learning. It’s just an obstacle that I haven’t yet mastered. I think that’s my biggest hurdle in life.”
Regarding the controversy over his issues with Drake: “At the end of the day, I’m me, they’re them. They rap, I sing. Totally different caliber. I rap, I play around on mixtapes. But our words don’t collide as much as you’d think.”
On his maturation as a person and why he stopped using Twitter to vent his emotions (Brown has now deleted his Twitter account as of Last Sunday after the article was written): “I haven’t been as mature and thought-out in the past, so, me growing now, it’s showing my progression. Now I mostly use it for marketing and promotions.”
On his recent light-hearted approach to fame: “We got the potential and opportunities to change the world-and still have fun with it. It’s a responsibility that I feel like I’m willing to take.”
