Chris Brown Covers Jet Magazine, Talks Jay Z, Trayvon Martin & Rihanna
Chris Brown's reputation has never been the same after his February 2009 assault case against his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. The R&B crooner is trying to put the past behind him and he talks about it with Jet magazine.
In the cover story, Breezy reflects on his past mistakes, the Trayvon Martin case and his off-and-on relationships with both RiRi and Karrueche Tran.
The 24-year-old singer blasts the media for their unbiased coverage of his past indiscretions.
"The media is full of yellow journalism. A lot of things I say, they will flip it," he says (quotes courtesy of YBF). "Instead of them getting off on all the positive stuff that I do, they will bring out the negative and draw out that story.”
He then lightly dry snitches on Jay Z when trying to compare his turmoil with the press.
“No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that [Jay Z] stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass," he states.
Chris is referring to Jay Z pleading guilty to stabbing record executive Lance "Un" Rivera outside of a New York City nightclub in December 1999.
Brown may have a point. Hov's run-ins with the law have been well-documented and he's been forgiven. So why not him?
Elsewhere, the 'Fine China' crooner talks about the Trayvon Martin case and how it affected him.
“I identify with Trayvon 100 percent as far as living in 2013 and still dealing with blatant racism," he says. "This generation is so used to racism that it’s normal; we don’t care. We aren’t on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as n----s."
As for his relationships with Karrueche Tran and Rihanna, Brown admitted that he equally loves both of them.
"Relationships are the most difficult part. That’s why I was honest with those two girls and I put out that video," he shares. "My ex and I broke up because of the 'situation' and she had moved on. I fell in love with another girl. Then my ex came back, so it was like, 'What is a man to do?' I told them both the truth. I didn’t do the sucker role."
The latest issue of Jet magazine, featuring Chris Brown on the cover, will hit newsstands Sept. 23.
