Hot Shots: Chris Brown Suits Up For ‘Prestige’

Published: Friday 2nd Nov 2012 by Sam

Cop a gander of a dapper Chris Brown.

The 23 year old rocks a number of fly suits in a edgy new shoot for Prestige magazine. His feature marks one of the few Brown has done this year in the wake of his team’s ‘minimal talking, maximum music’ approach with his career as of late.

Soundbites and more pics await below…

What are you having the most fun at right now?

Honestly, my day-to-day life is the most fun right now because I get a chance to not focus on “the artist” Chris Brown. Going through the regular things, like going to the grocery store. I’m also running a label right now, so I have different artists, four or five different acts, shooting videos that I’m directing and coming together.

Do you ever get time off?

I kind of have that luxury of being able to hand off my schedule and say, “I need a day off. I don’t want to do this, let’s cancel, reschedule.” I’m more of a CEO with my team. My days off, I hang out with my homeboys and play basketball. I paint, go to parties, listen to music, dance. I just bought a bike, so I like to ride. The cardio is good. Just to ride on the street on the bike, beating the traffic.

You can actually do that without getting hassled?

[Laughs] Yeah, I do. Then maybe a couple of minutes later someone in a car turns around and realises it’s me. “Hey, that’s Chris Brown. What’s Chris Brown doing on a bike?”

Turning to your music: your range is amazing. So many different genres. That’s kind of been your MO from the beginning, right?

Definitely with Fortune that’s the direction I wanted to go, but even with the F.A.M.E. album. What I wanted to do was not set the bar with a certain kind of style. I didn’t want people to say. “He’s just R&B.” Yes, I will sing an R&B song. But then I’ll do a pop song, then I’ll do a song with a country kind of feel, a reggae feel. I always want to be eclectic with my music. I don’t think music has a race. I think music has a soul and it’s just a feeling. What evokes the set of emotions from you is what I try to bring out…whatever flows, whatever I feel, I just write.

Whether they’re fun or super serious, the videos for Fortune are all mesmerising. How involved do you get in the developing the stories and visuals, and the production?

With the comedy videos like “Till I Die” – which I did with Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean – it was like, cool. Let’s have fun with it. Make a crazy video. Being able to direct by myself and have full creative focus and being able to know the cameras – that was the easiest part. The vision is the hard part. Whenever you’re sleeping, you have that dream or that nightmare and that’s your video. That’s how I kind of interpret it. Or whatever I see when I hear the music, whatever vision I see, I put it right onto paper and put it out on the video. Like the video for “Don’t Judge Me” – it was me going into a spaceship. Not to be arrogant when I say it, but I want to be the Steven Spielberg of music videos, to be innovative and young, not to put a bar on it just because of budgetary issues or certain capabilities.

    This is what We /Many have been waiting on and this is
    for POSITIVTIVY to spring Forward and thank Goodness the
    Positive Feeling is in the Air again for Chris and now it
    Will be Full steam Ahead.
    This thing that happened years ago is the past and this is the Present and we all or Hopefullly looking Forward to the Future!!!!
    Now if We can some how get the BAN lifted so Chris can go
    ABOARD with his next Tours then things will be set in Motion
    For the Young Super Star who everybody and ,,,,,I must Admit EVEN I HAD TO DO
    some searching My Soul to Forgive Chris But I will
    Be the first to Admit that Rihanna helped Me and Others A LOT
    As far as Letting go, and let God. I remember a time in the Pass
    when I’d try to Bare Back Blue Kid and XYZ & Mob Wife But then
    during the time of Rih’s Debut Movie Battleship after GOING
    Toe to toe are at lest I though I was going toe to toe, I shall never forget
    being on a Stake Out and talking softly about how the Net keeps Me
    Sane andI though about all of the energy spent Cursing XZY and Blue
    and even Mob wife, Virginan In The House and Zania and Blue KID I THOUGH SHYT it takes a lot of energy to fight and IRemember XZY AND SAYING hey xyz yo ass can hate on RIHANNA all u want but I am letting the Hate go and Hey I had a great feeling COME OVER ME FOR LETTING HATE GO and what a release that was. Like I will always say and I mean it, They all deserves a chance to Health, Wealth and a great Career,,,

  12. Originalprep November 2, 2012

    Chris is really one of the greatest of his time. The F.A.M.E. albume really sold me… who am I kidding, I’ve been a fan since his debute of ‘Run It’. It’s more than his vocals though, it’s his innovativeness and his drive to reach new and different heights. Also, I love the way he’s so relavent in the media right now… 🙂 kuddos to Chris… He’s doing his thing!

  13. ZANIA November 2, 2012

  16. Speaks Truth November 2, 2012

    What the hell is up with Chris brown. He’s just an asshole. That terrorist costume was just low rent … How would he feel if someone dressed up as George Zimmerman ? Pretty sure he wouldn’t like it.

    • mobwife: VOTE IT’S YOUR RIGHT & PRIVILEGE November 6, 2012

      B**** he was ot dressed as a TERRORIST the RACIST AMERICAN MEDIA said he was. He and his friends were dressed as aFREEDOM FIGHTERS ot f****** terrorists BUT even if he and his friends had been SO F****** WHAT IT WAS HOLLOWEEN and everyone dressed in wild costumes not just him.

      So drress like Zimmerman who gives a s***? White ppl have always dressed in BLACKFACE or as some WHITE KILLER ex: Jeffrey Dhumar, John Wayne Gacy & Charlies Manson so such the f*** up and stop being a media tool dumbass

  17. I Judge Flops November 2, 2012

    That Rihanna p**** got him looking all sick.
