Chris Brown Tells JET Mag His Issues With Jay-Z, The Media & The Rihanna/Karrueche Saga
In the October 14th issue of JET magazine, Chris Brown opens up about a variety of topics, including his relationships with Rihanna and Karrueche Tran, why he doesn't understand how Jay-Z gets a pass, the media and how he relates to Trayvon Martin.
TheYBF.com has the very first look inside...
It's easy to see where the 24-year-old is coming from, but it's just as easy to see his anger & perspective as a typical famous 20-something who doesn't quite get the bigger picture (or his responsibility in it)...yet. Maybe we'll see more growth on his upcoming sixth studio album, X, scheduled for a November 2013 release.
We've got a few highlights from Datwon Thomas' JET magazine cover story with Mr. Breezy. Check 'em below:
On his beef with the media
“The media is full of yellow journalism. A lot of things I say, they will flip it. Instead of them getting off on all the positive stuff that I do, they will bring out the negative and draw out that story.”
On his beef with Jay-Z
“No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that [Jay Z] stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass.”
On Trayvon Martin
“I identify with Trayvon 100 percent as far as living in 2013 and still dealing with blatant racism. This generation is so used to racism that it’s normal; we don’t care. We aren’t on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as ni**as.”
On controlling his anger issues
“You have to go through the struggle before you can get to the good part. I don’t try to lash out at people, or be as mad or impulsive as I used to be. I got to the point where it’s only so much you can take from the master, you feel me? I’ve taken my fair share of lashings.”
On his relationships with Karrueche Tran & Rihanna
"Relationships are the most difficult part. That’s why I was honest with those two girls and I put out that video. My ex and I broke up because of the “situation” and she had moved on. I fell in love with another girl. Then my ex came back, so it was like, 'What is a man to do?' I told them both the truth. I didn’t do the sucker role."
Chris also reveals in the issue if he calls himself "single", and whether he prefers just or woman to hold him down...or does he need several?
The issue hits newsstands on September 23.
