Chris Brown Says He DOES Remember+Nicki Minaj Signs With Young Money
Sep 01 | by Natasha
Here's the statement Chris Brown sent out tonight via his label at Jive after people were up and arms about this 30 second Larry King Live clip that hit the net today:
There have been reports on the internet that I didn’t remember what happened that night with Rihanna. I want to try and set things straight. That 30 seconds of the interview they used of me was taken from a one hour interview during which that same question was asked something like 4 or 5 times -- and when you look at the entire interview you will see it is not representative of what I said. The first four times – or how ever many times it was - I gave the same answer -- which was that I didn’t think it was appropriate for me to talk about what happened that night. I said it was not right for me and it really wasn’t fair to Rihanna. The fifth time – or whatever it was – I just misspoke. I was asked, “Do you remember doing it?” and I said, “No.” Of course I remember what happened. Several times during the interview, my mother said that I came to her right afterwards and told her everything. But it was and still is a blur. And yes, I still can’t believe it happened because it is not me or who I am or is what happened like anything I have ever done before. As I have said several times previously, I am ashamed of and sorry for what happened that night and I wish I could relive that moment and change things, but I can’t. I take full responsibility for my actions. What I have to do now is to prove to the world that this was an isolated incident and that is not who I am and I intend to do so by my behavior now and in the future.Sigh. I really just don't think any of these speeches of his are helping. Good or bad. Just sayin'....
Maybe I was the only one who didn't know she was already signed. But Nicki Minaj has officially signed on as the newest member of the Young Money label. Apparently these three mixtapes she's done she wanted to do independently, but now she's ready for the Young Money backing: Lil Wayne asserts, "I am honored to have Nicki Minaj as Young Money's First Lady. She is a star." Nicki Minaj asserts, "To say I'm excited would be an understatement. It's validation. It's proof. It's empowerment. I represent every little girl in a hood near you. To everyone that supported me two years ago when I was on underground mix-tapes and DVDs and to the people that only caught on two weeks ago, I say thank you. Be proud of yourself. You've given girls all around the world the permission to change the face of female rap." Her debut studio album is dropping in '10.
