Chris Brown has a mouth full of gold for his XXL magazine Dec/Jan cover story titled “No More Apologies.”
The “Beautiful People” singer, who is currently on the European leg of his Carpe Diem tour and recently quit Twitter after a spat, opens up about remaining positive on the social media site, the Drake NYC nightclub drama, and maturing.
Breezy also defends himself when it comes to his love triangle with Karrueche and Rihanna.
On the media: “In the beginning, I used to be hot. I’m normal. I’m human, so if anybody says something that’s a lie, I’m numb to it. I’ve smartened up.”
On Drake: “A lot of people wanna know about the whole situation with me, Drake and Meek Mill. 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 social media: “I haven’t been as mature and thought out in the past, so, me growing now, it’s showing my progression. I used to use my Twitter account to vent, but now I mostly use it for marketing and promotions. Even if the media asks me something, if it’s cool then it’s, ‘What’s up?’ But if it’s anything that’s too negative, I don’t care to respond.”
On his personal 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.”
On dealing with life:“I use music or painting as my outlet to get through the confusion. I try to promote positivity and love.”
