Chris Brown Opens Up On Life, Love & Rihanna: “My Maturity Level Has Risen”

chris brown billboard that grape juice 2014 900 Chris Brown Opens Up On Life, Love & Rihanna: My Maturity Level Has Risen

Peep the new and improved Chris Brown!

With jail behind him and a new album release to look forward to, a glowing Breezy caught up with his pals over at ‘Billboard’ for an interview showcasing not only his growth as a performer, but as a man.

His take on love, life and Rihanna below…

On life in jail: “A guard wakes you up; you eat. You stay in your cell most of the time, basically 24 hours a day. Maybe on Mondays you go to the roof inside of a cage and have a phone call. It’s isolation. You have time to focus on what matters, on what to do and what not to do.”

On what he’s learned: “My maturity level has risen as far as my realising what’s important. Realising that I’m human like everyone else. At the end of the day, it’s just a humbling experience. You’re more appreciative of everything else that’s on the outside. A burger tastes 1,000 times better when you’re out [laughs]. I’m just more appreciative of the things I’m blessed with and the things I do: music, being able to take care of my family, being able to see my friends and family.”

On what he missed most: “I just missed my family. At the end of the day,music is definitely a passion. But when you’re dealing with your own personal issues, family is first. I just dealt with that. I missed my dad and mom, all my cousins…seeing people’s faces and smiles…seeing people who were just encouraging and positive.”

On whether he can see a time when connection to Rihanna won’t be discussed: “When we’re not relevant anymore, that might be the case. As long as you’re doing something good, people will always bring up old stuff or negative stuff because they don’t want you to surpass a certain level or elevate. But as long as you have your head on straight, it shouldn’t matter what people want to say.”

On being a role model: “I’ve gone through more stuff than most 35- or 40-year-olds, and I’ve dealt with it. As far as becoming a man in the public eye, continuing to persevere and stay positive throughout trials and tribulations…that’s the only thing I’d say contributes to my being a role model. If kids look up to me, that’s amazing; great. As far as me as an artist and a person, I always want to exude positivity. But as far as saying, ‘Hey, I’m a role model, I’m the best of this,’ I take the humble approach and let people make that decision for themselves.”

On the outcome of his D.C. assault case: “I just feel positive about life in general. Whatever happens will happen, and God has me. I’m going to keep my faith and be focused on my family, friends, fans and music. And from there just be the best Chris Brown I can be.”

    As a human being sometimes it takes a few rough moments to realize what’s most important in life, let’s just hope Chris has FINALLY got it together and that this isn’t bring said just because his album is coming out soon.

    Finally a real magazine cover.

    If you’re really mature, you don’t say it, you exude it. What I see right now is a Billboard cover, that’s progress, keep it up.

    Thank God he finally leave Rihanna and only love Karrueche Tran. I hope they have some kids and live happy ever after. I hope Rihanna finds a man who will love her and treat her like a man suppose to treat a lady and not just sleeping with her then rapping about it or talking about how they slept with her.
