During an interview with UK Mirror, Chris Brown spoke candidly about his love and current relationship with Rihanna, “beef” with Frank Ocean, Elton John and homophobia…
Without out a doubt this interview showed that Chris has truly grown, and that his new publicist is doing a GREAT job.
Chris on his relationship with Rihanna: “Sometimes you row, you fight, with the one you love and things get said, stuff spirals. That night was the deepest regret of my life, the biggest mistake. But she loves me – what can I say? I’m forgiven… but, yes, I worked hard for it. I’ve learned a lot since that night and I’ve grown up. I was very young and I took a lot of stuff, fame, for granted. I didn’t understand it. The support from those who do know me and the fans, who are incredible, got me through.”
Chris on being happy with Rihanna: “We are really happy. We are back together. She is the most beautiful girl in the world. But I’m sad she couldn’t be here tonight; she is rehearsing for her tour.”
Chris on Frank Ocean, Elton John, and homophobia:
– Frank Ocean: “I only love people. I’m focused on music now. I’m working on my album. I want to surprise you know, I want fresh ears. I want people to hear my new music. The fans and the naysayers, the peers out there and everybody. The new music I want to surpass the [expectations] and surprise them and set the bar.”
– Elton John & homophobia: “It was an honor for him to personally invite me and it’s a blessing to be here. And this is great event to raise money and awareness about AIDS [promotes the message that] people with HIV are people too, there shouldn’t be discrimination against them or any discrepancy or any fear about being around them. At the end of the day, I’m not homophobic in any way and I don’t focus on the negative that people bring to it.”
