Controversial star of the moment Chris Brown is opening up about growing and love in the new issue of XXL magazine.
He opens up in the December/January issue, in which he explains, “I haven’t been as mature and thought out in the past, so, me growing now, it’s showing my progression. I used to use my Twitter account to vent, but now I mostly use it for marketing and promotions. Even if the media asks me something, if it’s cool then it’s, ‘What’s up?’ But if it’s anything that’s too negative, I don’t care to respond.”
Brown also spoke about his very public love life, from dating Rihanna to model Karruecehe Tran. The rapper explains that at 23-year-old he still has a lot to learn about love.
“One thing people often want me to talk about is my public love life,” he states. “When it comes to my love life, the perception seems as though I am a player. But that’s not true. Love is something I am still learning. It’s just an obstacle that I haven’t yet mastered. I think that’s my biggest hurdle in life.”
Since breaking up in 2009, Rihanna and Brown have been at the center of dating rumors. Both parties have denied a relationship, but have since been spotted together while Brown performed and after Rihanna posted ashirtless photo of him in bed.
