In a telling interview with The Guardian, Chris Brown revealed some bombshells, including admitting to losing his virginity at just 8 years old.
He explained of losing his virginity to a 14 or 15 year old, “It’s different in the country. By that point we were 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 beast at it.”
But that’s not all he talked about with The Guardian. He also talked about his controversial arrest in 2009 for beating then-girlfriend Rihanna, which he’s still feeling the repercussions of. He’s adamant on two points in the interview – that he has changed since the arrest and that his new album X is relatable for anyone.
He did say of the Rihanna arrest that if it didn’t happen, he would be "bigger than life.” He also said it was "probably the biggest wake-up call for me. I had to stop acting like a little teenager, a crazy, wild young guy."
Referring to getting his probation reinstated and an extra 1,000 hours of community service, Brown had a lot to say. He even compared himself to Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen, saying "Young black kids don't have the fairer chances.”
"Community service, that sh-t is a b-tch. I'll be honest – and you can quote me on that – that is a motherf--ker there,” he said. “For me, I think it's more of a power trip for the DA. I can speak freely now, because I don't really care what they say about it, but as far as, like, the 1,000 extra hours they gave me, that's totally fricking bananas."
