Controversial American singer — Chris Brown, has seen it all and been through it all
He was sentenced to six months community service and placed on probation for five years for assaulting his former girlfriend, Rihanna in 2009, but reveals that he would definitely work together with her in the studio once again should the opportunity arise.
In a chat with ‘Access Hollywood,’ he said: ‘I think people kinda always get misconceptions because if you don’t see [Rihanna and I] in the headlines dating or with each other, it’s always, ‘Oh, they hate each other.’ ‘We are friends. We have a great understanding. There are no issues. ‘If she’s working on an album [and] she wants me on a record, she can call. I’ll get on the record,’
He went on to say: ‘If I need her on something, it’s vice versa. So, that friendship, I think speaks volumes without having to speak. ‘We’ve been friends. We’ve known each other for almost 10 years, the same amount of time I’ve been doing music,’; he continued. ‘I don’t think that’s ever gonna change… we’re friends.’
Chris Brown who spent 108 days behind bars for violating his probation when he allegedly made threats about using guns while seeking anger-management treatment in rehab, was released from jail on June 2 and admits the experience has helped him.
He explained: ‘The past year has been God’s way of showing me what was necessary. You think you’re invincible and I needed to look at my life and see it. I need to be more of a role model. I wanna be an icon for what I do with my talent. ‘I want to be legendary for what I do with my music not for what happens in my personal life.’
CB was sentenced to time already served after pleading guilty to assault in Washington DC earlier this month stemming from an incident last October, admits he didn’t pen any tracks in jail by saying: ‘I didn’t write in jail. I need the vibe of the studio. I feed off people’s energies. I like to pack my studios with females because that’s my core audience. I like to see their vibe so it lets me gauge if I am doing something right.’
