From the mind of Witch Hazel | Posted in Brew Quotes, Chris Brown | Posted on 03-09-2011
Can somebody please keep Chris Brown from falling into the PR hellhole that is taking about the Rihanna beatdown? I mean, why has this cat not hired a decent PR person who handcuffs himself to Chris and won’t let him say anything without first vetting it? I just don’t get it.
In the latest episode of “oh no he didn’t say that, did he?,” Breezy gave an interview to the NY Post’s Page Six Magazine where he talks about his life after February 2009… and that part is actually pretty decent… til you get to the moment where he generally refers to the beating as a “mishap.” A mishap? Like losing your keys or getting an explosion of yogurt on your shirt when you pop the lid (does that only happen to me?). Anyway… read on…
“People are always gonna talk. But I’m in a positive place. I consider myself a grown-ass man,” says the star, whose new album F.A.M.E. stands for “Forgiving All My Enemies.”
Speaking of forgiveness, Brown says he’s done apologizing for the brutal Rihanna attack. “At the end of the day,” muses the “Forever” singer, “if I walk around apologizing to everybody, I’m gonna look like a damn fool.”
In the wake of that shocking scandal, Brown says “a handful of people stuck by me,” including fellow musicians Pitbull and producer Pharrell Williams.
Still, he complains that many folks “turn[ed] away. They don’t want to get involved with it because they don’t want their name attached to anything negative. Unknowingly, they kind of show their true colors when they do that.”
He doesn’t exactly fault those former friends for walking away after the assault — which he calls a “mishap.”
“You can’t blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don’t want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap.”
“The last two years, everybody dissed me,” Brown says. “But my fans were so dedicated. The way I look at it is, you can’t walk around mad, because then you just prove everybody right that you’re an angry person.”
Brown’s full interview appears in the magazine tomorrow.
