Chris Brown Talks Losing his Virginity at 8; the "Rihanna Incident"
Opening up about his personal life, Chris Brown gave a very revealing interview to The Guardian recently.
In the in-depth discussion, the "Don't Judge Me" singer reveals that he lost his virginity at only 8 years old, explaining, "It's different in the country" and after watching so much pornography with older boy cousins, "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."
Asked if he ever wished he didn't have to grow up in the spotlight, he replied, "Honestly, where I'm from, probably not. I think me being able to travel from the small town I was from, me already having a good IQ, and you know being intelligent, and regular stuff, I just had to learn more and more of the street life, you know, how to maneuver around a room full of wolves."
Referring to the "Rihanna incident," the 24-year-old hip-hop star shares, "That was probably, like, one of the most troubling times in my life, because I was 18 or 19, so being able to feel the hatred from more adult people, you don't understand it at the time, because you made a mistake. I'm going to come back, I know the music that I'm doing, how hard I work, is not just for nothing."
Lots of folks speculated that the tattoo on his neck of a bruised and battered woman was of Rihanna herself, but Chris insists it's just a "random woman," saying, "I really don't care. A tattoo's a tattoo; it's my body, my skin. I've just cleared this up, this is not Rihanna's face. I just got a tat. Like I say, a tat is on my body, so it's personal. I liked how it looked, so I thought I'd get it done. It's all good."
