Chris Brown Makes Failed Attempt at Damage Control in Guardian Interview

Chris Brown interview with The Guardian doesn't help his reputation

Chris Brown has done his best to mend his tattered reputation in the media. Yet during his latest interview with The Guardian, the R&B star’s short temper; unusual details about his childhood; and failure to really own up to the incident with Rihanna, caused his efforts at damage control to fall flat.

When he sat down with The Guardian and had the opportunity to actually show how much he has changed as a person, rather than just talk about it, he filled his interview with unnecessary vulgar language, talking in circles when hit with tough questions.

Brown claimed the incident with Rihanna was a huge wake up call, but then began flip flopping about whether he really felt he needed to make a change afterwards.

“I had to stop acting like a little teenager, a crazy, wild young guy,” he said.

When the interviewer asked if that was how he remembered himself during that time, suddenly Brown got extremely defensive.

“No, not at all ‘cause you can talk with all my girls that I did mess with before, and it’s never been a violent history,” he said before flopping back to the other side of the fence and claiming he needed to learn from what happened. “But at the same time, I learned from it, and it was almost like… I wouldn’t say it happened for a reason, but it was something to trigger my mind to be more of a mature adult. To handle myself in situations, don’t throw tantrums, don’t be a baby about it.”

Ironically, Brown was still a baby when he apparently expressed his interest in the ladies.

During the interview he spilled on losing his virginity when he was only 8 years old, to a 15-year-old girl.

“It’s different in the country,” he said after explaining that he watched a lot of porn growing up thanks to the influence of his older cousins. “By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I’m saying? Like, girls, we weren’t afraid to talk to them; I wasn’t afraid.”

He then took the time to compare his own love life to that of music icon, Prince.

“But you know how Prince had a lot of girls back in the day,” Brown asked. “Prince was like, the guy. I’m just that, today. But most women won’t have any complaints if they’ve been with me. They can’t really complain. It’s all good.”

Of course, we all know one woman who would beg to differ.

Meanwhile, after he proved that he still has issues with taking full responsibility for the Rihanna incident and bragged about having sex when he was only 8 – a message we’re sure his young fans are going to latch onto – he also took the time to dish on how he hates community service while sending out a “f**k you” to anyone who doesn’t like his music.

Chris Brown The Guardian interview, losing virginity at 8 “Community service, that s**t is a b***h,” he said. “I’ll be honest – and you can quote me on that – that is a motherf***er there.”

Quite a surprising stance on community service, coming from a star who boasts about his own charitable efforts through his own programs.

As for anyone who has the audacity not to like his music, his message is as simple as it gets.

When he was questioned about the tattoo on his neck that many felt like closely resembled Rihanna’s face after their domestic violence incident, Brown said he just wanted people to focus on his music – and they better like it.

“My favorite line is, ‘F**k you,’” he said. “I like giving the world a big f**k you… Just make music. If they like it, they like it. If they don’t, f**k you.”

While this was a pretty poor attempt to recreate his image, or at least get a step in that direction, it is a reminder that Brown is young and he is human.

He has enough time left in the music industry to continue to grow and learn from his mistakes. Hopefully it won’t be long before Breezy’s Twitter rants and angry interviews are a thing of the past.
