Six months into the New Year, Chris Brown finally does his first interview of 2012, exploring his artistic side at an art exhibit.
Despite the fact that his team revealed Brown wouldn’t be participating in any interviews this year, the R&B singer made an exception for artist Ron English.
Last month Chris Brown took part in an art exhibition alongside contemporary artist, Ron English. As many diehard Chris Brown fans know, the R&B singer is also quite an artist in his spare time. He recently teamed up with Ron English to release the “Dum English” toy line.
During the art exhibition, the two signed toys from the creative line and eventually Chris found himself in the middle of an interview with Mr. English.
“I started when I was about 11, singing, and then I just kept going at it… I told my mom that I just wanted to focus on that [and] just pursue that for the most part,” Chris Brown told English. He also admitted that when he was growing up he was into everything from sports to sci-fi movies but was never interested in singing until he gave it a try. Finding a love for music also changed the type of tunes Brown played and he even became a fan of Phil Collins.
Unlike many of his interviews, talking with English allowed the 23-year-old star to talk about his artistic side. He told English that a lot of the inspiration comes from the part of him that is still a child and remembering those childhood memories. After hearing this, Ron English replied, “I’m the world’s oldest 10-year-old.” The two laughed together before Chris Brown said, “…I’m maybe seven.”
In other related news, last weekend Rihanna and Chris were spotted partying at the same venue SL in New York City. Chris brought along longtime girlfriend Karrueche Tran while RiRi arrived with a group of girlfriends. According the NY Post, Chris and Tran sent over two bottles of Ace of Spades champagne to Rihanna’s table. Maybe a make-up for his subliminal diss track that caused Rihanan to drop him from her Twitter friends – or just a friendly gesture.
