Chris Brown Talks Rihanna, Drake, and His Growth as a Person

November 29, 2012 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

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.”
