‘Break My Heart’ hitmaker Estelle has certainly been seen making her rounds in support of her latest effort ‘All Of Me’ (which hit stores late February). Landing many-a-magazine feature, her latest comes in the form of Vibe Vixen where the U.K.’er earned covergirl status for its March digital issue.
While imparting info on her critically acclaimed offering, the brazen Brit also gave her two cents on the hot topic that was Rihanna and Chris Brown‘s reunion ‘Birthday Cake’ reunion.
As fans may know, Brown and his longtime friend/fellow Virginian Trey Songz both play guest star on Estelle’s ‘All Of Me’ track ‘International (Serious)’. And much like Songz, the ‘American Boy’ singer came to the defense of her American collaborator. Find out her thoughts below:
Via Vibe Vixen:
” I feel like Chris is an incredible singer, musician, dancer, entertainer, and brain box as far as business and that’s why I respect him and that’s where we meet at because I have nothing else to go on.”
“I get it, I understand, and I get the effects for young women. I can’t speak on it because I wasn’t there. Parents, raise your kids. Young men and women, raise your kids. Don’t let us raise your children. That’s my take on it,” she explains. “I respect him, I love him, he does amazing music, and has evolved. He’s worked his ass off, so why are people still crucifying him?”
It seems that Estelle thinks the media, and us as outsiders looking in, are too hard on Chris. When we asked, she said, “I just think people need to worry about their lives per say. Don’t worry about who he’s recording songs, who he’s doing this with if you enjoy the music. A lot of the same people were two stepping to ‘Look At Me Now,’ so it’s kind of like, keep your story straight or just don’t judge. Roll with it or don’t, but don’t dip in and out. We all make mistakes. A sin is a sin is a sin. It’s no big smoke, let the boy live. He does music.”
