Some things are better left unsaid.
Perhaps that’s the lesson some Chris Brown fans hope he learns this week, following the unveiling of comments he made regarding his sexuality during an interview with ‘The Guardian‘.
Comments, that saw him reveal that he lost his virginity aged eight.
His disturbing confession below…
An excerpt from the piece reads:
“He lost his virginity when he was eight years old, to a local girl who was 14 or 15. Seriously? “Yeah, really. Uh-huh.” He grins and chuckles. “It’s different in the country.” Brown grew up with a great gang of boy cousins, and they watched so much porn that he was raring to go. “By that point, we were already 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 best at it.” (Now 24, he doesn’t want to say how many women he’s slept with: “But you know how Prince had a lot of girls back in the day? Prince was, like, the guy. I’m just that, today. But most women won’t have any complaints if they’ve been with me. They can’t really complain. It’s all good.”)
While some may find the above funny or even cute, one does have to wonder how ‘funny’ or ‘cute’ we’d find it if a female artist revealed that she had been introduced to sex and pornography by an older relative at the same age.
It’s disturbing whichever way you look at it, and unfortunately very telling of how Brown is currently being handled.
For, where was management to stop when he began to relay this story, perhaps not realising how it would serve to tarnish the image he’s already struggling to restore.
