Chris Brown on His Bad Press: ‘I’ve Taken My Fair Share of Lashings’

chris brown jet magazineChris Brown is covering the latest issue of JET magazine where he opens up about his constant struggles with the media, his relationship with exes Karrueche Tran and Rihanna, and relating to murdered teen Trayvon Martin.

It’s is obvious from the interview highlights, via theybf.com, that Brown, 24, continues to struggle with fame and where he fits in this world.

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.”
