A Mature Chris Brown Talks BET Breakdown, F.A.M.E., & Why He Won't Tour With Usher

​ ​ ​ ​


Chris Brown was in New York City yesterday making his rounds where he stopped by BET's "106 & Park" 10-year anniversary and the Swatch event.  And he still found the time to do an interview with Hot 97.  We have highlights from the interview and the full video inside...


Chris Brown sat down for an interview with Angie Martinez over at Hot 97 yesterday where he came across very humble and mature.  Thanking the audience for making his single "Deuces" a hit record, Breezy seemed surprised by the song's success. 

When the issue of Usher came up, it was briefly met with dead silence.  He made the point to mention that he and Usher do not have any problems and their main reason for not touring together was that it wasn't the right time financially.  Their business managers/promoters could not come to an agreement.   

Though he says it was a business decision, it led to a deeper conversation about being abandoned by certain industry peers and associates, which clearly has Chris on emotional guard.  He made it clear that even though he is cordial to music industry people, he stays in his own lane with his crew.

He says his new tattoo which reads "FAME" is about "forgiving all my enemies" and being built up then torn down by the music industry.  You can hear the pain in his voice and tell he's been through a rough time but clearly seems to have learned from it.

He also talks about his BET "moment" saying as he stood on stage and thought about the words of "Man In The Mirror" he could not hold back the tears during his Michael Jackson tribute.

Here's the full interview here: 

We also hear he broke things off with Miss Dade County because she was more worried about getting pub for her rap career at Chris' expense than she was about him.

And here are some pics from Breezy's visit to "106 & Park" yesterday with his boys Bow Wow and Trey Songz:

He was surprised on stage by Bow Wow and Trey Songz.

And of course they wouldn't let him leave without hitting the dougie.

SMH People give repeat

SMH People give repeat offenders like TI and Lil' Wayne a pass every time, but Chris can't catch a break.Can the boy live? I mean, really. How many of you here have sons, brothers, fathers and uncles? God forbid if anyone of them were ever find themselves in a situation similiar to Chris', would you want your loved one to be given a chance, JUST ONE MORE CHANCE, to redeem himself? One more chance to prove to society that he has changed, matured and grown since the incident? Would you want society to have a little mercy on him? Yes, Chris' actions are unacceptable, but he has done what the courts have asked of him and has served his dept to society. Give the brother a break.

ppl say if a guy hits a woman

ppl say if a guy hits a woman he will do it again.but the problem with this is that, the ones that do change never get mentioned.they only mention the ones that repeat offend.therefore chris was always gonna get it hard from the start.this is total crap man.instead of kicking a guy when hes down help him.he needed help more than ever but still they attack.but there will always be good ppls out there like me and a few of u so f them.......f them all.

I love Chris Brown and i feel him about the whole friends things. People fail to see that Rhianna had fault in that sitituation but he did not put her on blast! So people need to stop hating and let that boy do him cause everybody makes mistakes so get over it. He wasnt right but niether was alot of people for doing the things they did.

Your right I should have used

Your right I should have used spell check, in haste I skipped a step. I merely was responding to a previous comment. I realized this stuff is old, and I am happy that both parties have moved on; I just didn't appreciate the generalization on who and how christians should behave. Lastly it does not matter her supposed part in the argument, he had no right to put his hands on her. And if this incident had happend in St Croix, he would have been thrown in jail instantly and disowened by his family. North America does not take Domestic Violence seriously enough. But your right lets forget about it, its old news, he said he's sorry and like all domestic abusers he won't do it again.

Wow! A lot of insane people

Wow! A lot of insane people on YBF always talking about Chris Brown & Rihanna i think BOTH parties have moved on now in their lives. I think it's time for the fans to do the same you guys are insane always arguing and calling people, bitches, stupid, idiots and such. Can we act like civilized people? Chris spent time in court he was charged he said he wa "sorry" he spent hours doing community service. it's been a while can we just drop this "old" drama PLEASE! Rihanna fans act like she should be excused from this i think her situation is "sad" but she is involved she threw away his car keys. But i think Chris was very "wrong" for putting his hands on her and beating her up "unconcious" no man should do that. But the fans need to let it go it happened a while back they have moved on i think we should do the same. It's not like he is a walking murdere or somehting he is a young person who f***ed' up BIG time and he is "sorry" for it!

First of all it is never

First of all it is never okay to put your hands on anyone, and especially in anger. Irregardless of how one feels about a person's appearence.Chris was dead wrong! As forgiving as we (by we I mean his fans; american and otherwise) should be; we were dispointed, angry and hurt by his behaviour. Yes as christians we should forgive, however forgiveness is not an easy thing. Forgiveness is something that comes from a spirit of humility, compassion and being able to put themselves in that person's shoes ; to gain perspective. Unfortunately the lack of forgiveness from Chris's Fans has attested to the difficulty in doing so. Domestic violence is a serious issue for men and women all over ther world and too often it gets pushed under rug, victims blamed or humilated in court. SO what chris had to endure public persecution& community service, this is nothing in comparison to what Rihanna has endured; primarily the physical and emotional toll it has caused to her. Its humiliating to have the whole world witness your upmost vulnerable & fearful experience; and then be left open to for further persecution, interpretation and judgement. Yes Chris Brown made a mistake, but many ppl make mistakes/crimes and are subsequently punished; Chris Brown is merely getting his due.=) Do Unto Other's as They Shall DO Unto You. Its hard to seperate the man from the music since purchasing an album is in part because you like the artist as person and not just his/her music. Everyone 2-3rd person can sing, however it is the personality/persona that fans buy into that motivates them to go in by their fav artist's cds. It is for this reason y record companies spend so much time promoting artists so their fans can get to know them, buy into their product etc. If you as fan no longer believe or trust in the substantive value of a product then your no longer inclined to invest your hard earned money.Furthermore how dare you used a hateful word to described your brethen and earlier shaming christians. That word historically used to belittle and declare our unworthiness. Fans boycotted Chris's music because of him, and his actions not because of Jay Z. In addition Rihanna' so called Devil Worship is all alledeged and no substantive proof has come forth to suggest its validity.
R U Serious's picture

I understand what your

I understand what your saying, however Chris Brown doesn't need your forgiveness. or mine, or anyone else's, besides the people who were actually involved in the situation. I mean its understandable that fans would be disappointed and angered by what he did, but its not the fan's call to decide if he's 'forgiven' or not. If Rihanna has forgiven him, he's forgiven himself, and they both have let it go, people who aren't really a part of the situation shouldn't take it upon themselves to keep 'throwing wood in the fire'. Just sayin.....

@RJ Serious.....What the hell

(YAWN) All this for what?...Out of that whole interview you resort to the incident to talk about get over it. -but since you brought it up- They're equally responsible save the blah blah blah for Oprah because no one was there besides them so save it...if you want to speak on the turmoil & emotional distress she faced then also speak on her part in what happened because I'm sure she wasn't as innocent as she proclaims.

if i was Chris i would have

if i was Chris i would have hit that fugly bitch too. Dont act like you wouldn't. I'm glad his career is getting on track again- he got major skills unlike Rihanna, the devil worshiper. We all know that nigger Jay-Z is/was behind everyone boycotting Chris' material. He made a mistake (maybe not) and why doesn't he get a second chance. y'all judgemental and claim to be Christians, there's less negative press about Eddie long than there was about Chris. SHAME ON YOU - Americans.

This is a really entertaining

This is a really entertaining Chris Brown video interview and its great to hear from the man behind the music. I have to say that im loving the Chris Brown song "Deuces" and the cool Chris Brown music video for this song which is one of the hottest R&B music videos around at the moment. The remix for this song sounds excellent too. And finally it would be great if Chris Brown would tour with Usher as it would be an amazing tour.

I love Chris. I love his maturity, I love his music. Say what you want, but the guy has pure TALENT. I can hear Deuces 50,000 times and not get tired of it (And don't even let me mention Crawl). Stop discussing the incident, let us allow him to grow and let his talent shine.

He is an asshole! I wasn't

He is an asshole! I wasn't killing him over the Rhianna issue but then he said some dumb shit about Sandra Rose's skin color wether as a joke or not- You don't speak about black people like that. We now know exactly how he thinks! That's why he only dates light skin girls. He could have kept his dumb jokes without race it it!

First of all sweety Chris is

First of all sweety Chris is black,light skin,but black, his real father,his sister and his nephew etc are all brown skin and he loves them all So if he was racist(hes not) he would be racist against himself too Sandra Rose is a hateful and evil person and shes racist against lighter skin people,she even has a special name she calls them on her site,She can dish out hate and insults but she cant take them.So saying "you dont talk to black people like that" you sound stupid His jokes were towards her After she started with him,they werent towards all brown skin people so have a seat
