Popular R&B artist Chris Brown revealed many personal and controversial statements about his childhood in a candid interview with The Guardian.
Brown, 24, opened up about the 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna and about his childhood, including losing his virginity at the age of eight.
Brown told the publication that he lost his virginity at 8 years old to a girl from his town who was 14 or 15 years old. He also said him and his cousins watched porn at a very young age growing up in the small town of Tappahannock, Virginia.
"It's different in the country,” he said, West Coast Sentinel reports. "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. So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it. You can be the best at it."
He also opened up about the 2009 media frenzy when he assaulted Rihanna. According to Celebuzz, he called it “probably the biggest wake-up call for me. I had to stop acting like a little teenager, a crazy, wild young guy.”
