    He keeps on saying he’s “human” umm Chris we’re all human but no matter what…you will still be seen/known as the guy who physically beat Rihanna. I also found it rude how he called her “shorty” I mean damn…

    Hopefully Angie Martinez decides to go back to the MC thing SOON!

    She retired in ’02, so from the “average rap retirement” factor, we shoulda seen a new album in ’05…”Mi Amor” was my homegirls’ ANTHEM!

    Ok, I love chris brown (the singer, dancer) no matter what. at the end of the day their both to blame. It’s crazy how everyone turns against chris, like they knew what went down. He is HUMAN! Everyone makes mistake, why doesn’t he just spill the beans about what rihanna did to him. In the mean time she’s doing her thing and continuing her money flow while his is on a stop! Come on chris, get over her and find yourself a realll woman because you know them caribbean girls…smh. Rihanna already makes me sick, chris is starting too.

    I understand how Chris Brown is feeling i mean nobody wants to put their business out there on the radio but there is alot to know. The media is making it seem like its all his vault and really they both played a huge roll in this situation. Honestly i just hope that the people will except him back, because everybody makes mistakes and he has constantly apologized for his wrong doings and chris brown is a great artist…..maaaaauuuuuh(kisses) i love u chris brown!!!! Dont let the haters get you u down .

    This was a great interview! Anyone still hating on him at this point is just full of hate. OMG Crawl is soooo beautiful and inspiring. Let’s crawl back to love…..We love you Chris!

    I have love for both Chris Brown and Rihanna and I understand where both of them are coming from, but let’s be real…it takes two to fight. Point. Blank. Period. I’m not saying that its justified as being right but it is EXACTLY what it is. Chris Brown is a talented guy who made a mistake in a highly publicized relationship. Should he be judged…not directly but everyone will have their own opinion on the situation. I’m still a supporter of Chris Brown…he has shown his remorse and people need to get out of that extent of his personal life and focus on what he’s doing now…we can’t compare him to Ike Turner.

    I plan to see Chris Brown at the House of Blues when he comes to Chicago. I enjoyed the interview Rap-Up. Thx for posting.

    Chris….Great first step…..long road ahead true but you are starting off on a solid foundation and whatever comes from this will make you a wiser and greater man. I am praying for your continued success and that is not to say financially but that you have success in drawing close to the people that love you the most and never having regrets from this day forward. Much love for you!!!!!!

    How many times can you say “At the end of the day…”?! Can you find another metaphor?

    [Reply]

    chianne Reply:

    @Bella Harley, – Hey, give sweetie a break on his vocab.skils. He never even finished high school. He’s been hammered so much – do you have to jump on him for the way he talks? He’s so natural, I think he doesn’t dwell on how many ways to say this is the bottom line of what he feels (tho he could of changed up and said “the bottom line is this” – !

    I was listening to the interview earlier today I must Angie did a great job with this particular interview because sometimes I feel she is too nice and soft with the celebrities. As for C.B. I feel like he held his own and I hope eveything turns out well for him we all make mistakes and we ask to be forgiven so why can”t he.

    What I learned from the Chris Brown scenario:

    Leave exorcisms to the PROFESSIONALS. We all know she’s possessed, but he shoulda called up a priest to do all that work!

    Once the demons are exorcised, I’m scooping her up (She was fine as hell before Good Girl Gone Bad dropped)

    I’m glad Chris Brown finally got his chance to say his peace I too have love for Chris Brown I just hope the public will be able to get pass this whole Chris and Rhianna situation and allow both parties to move on with their career

    Okay…it happened and it’s done with. Let’s let Chris MOVE ON. Damnn, I mean I will always be a fan of his, and I support him.

  16. MANI

    it seems to be misunderstood…IT TAKES TO PPL TO FIGHT! Yes he hit her but im sure she hit him too…she too came from a violent childhood upbringing (drug addict father and regularly fighting with her brothers)! They are both equal responsible…..give him a break! He’s said he’s sorry…..and he didnt have to do that! DON’T try to PUNISH HIM FOREVER!

    He kept saying the same thing over and over again. I also found it inappropriate and somewhat creepy when he kept referring to Rihanna as “shorty”.

    [Reply]

    chianne Reply:

    @Catie, – A few people are saying that. I don’t think the term is automatically derogatory. I actually feel, with Chris, it’s a term of affection – his nickname for her – and I bet she goes along with it, and has one for him (wish I knew it! – ‘Thug’, or ‘Swag’ – like mocking it all). I thought it was sweet hearing him call her that.

  21. regg

    come on now i liked the interview but shawty got a name and i thinks thats jiii disrespectful for keep calling her shawty fuck wrong with him!!!!

    [Reply]

    chianne Reply:

    @regg, – “me and rihanna” – that sounds too stiff. “me and RiRi – that sounds too mass media. I bet Shawty is what he calls her, I still bet she’s OK with it. If not he wouldn’t be out there using that term, with all the other crap people are harping on (like adding fuel to fire)

    But WHATEVER – I say let’s move on too, and let Chris do his great music, and live his life.

    Like he’s wrong, he knows he’s wrong, and then he got counseling on top of that to show not only he knows he messed up but he wants to fix himself. i didn’t like chris brownie from the jump but i feel him when he say’s “he gonna smile regardless” you cant surround your life around one day you messed up or we all as a human race would be some sad ass m fers real talk! People are so quick to want to try on celebrity shoes but not know what the sh** comes with….People need to look in the mirror b4 they judge others real sh**! I still dont like Chris Brown but i respect him not for what he did but from where he’s coming from and how he goes about it! and no i never hit a female B*T*H*S!

    @Jay,

    It takes two for it to be a fight…So it’s OK for females to hit males then? (DOUBLE STANDARD ALERT if you say it is)

    Great interview and we will never know what happened in that car. I know RiRi is not all that innocent. I wish them both success and triumph. Let’s get past it and treat others the way we would want to be treated.

    I loved the interview.I’ve always been a chris fan.Angie did great as well.Who said chris didnt finish high school?Well for the record he did finish high school.

  28. Jay

    I personally feel like Chris sounds a lot more mature. I was actually surprised at how open he was in this interview. I pray for both of them and wish them both the best. Not that he needs my forgiveness, but I forgive him. Keep ya head up.

  29. MelRenee

    I think some people really need to take a good look at themselves. We have all done things that we were ashamed of. Im not cleanin up Chris’ mess b/c I waz dissapointed as well. N it sucks that he has to face his error in front of all these judgmental people. We as a people tend to be very hard on our examples. N this is comin from someone who wz in an abusive relationship. Let this boy(at the end of the day he is sooo young) learn without killin him in the process with your obnoxious statements. If your gonna criticize, let it be constructive. Im again, very dissapointed,but I do wish Chris the best. He is doin alot more than most 19 year olds. N despite this horrific uproar, he is very talented. N we all at some point appreciated his gift of music. Good Luck Chris.

    aww he still calls riri shawty!!!

  31. marley

    guyss I could’nt get that if he said shorty or shawty? are they have same meanıng?

    [Reply]

  32. Jay

    @ marley Yeah, they mean the same thing. Shawty is just the more slang way of saying Shorty. Also people with different accents say it differently.

    @ MelRenee I totally agree with you

  33. niksi

    About the high school thing- so did he get his GED?Good for him (as if he needs it). And I don’t care how many times he says at the end of the day – AT THE END OF THE DAY, CHRIS BROWN IS THE MOST TALENTED AND GENUINE PERSON OUT THERE (they don’t usually go together).

    [Reply]

  34. marley

    thanks jay:)ı guess he try to impress people with showing his love to public but that cannot be love to beating a woman

    [Reply]

  35. Maya What

    Whatever he called Rihanna shorty after being with her for two years. This is your typical young uneducated punk and its sad so, so, so sad. His vocabulary is horrible and this interview just shows you he is just a child and to me he really still doesn’t understand how horrible it is for a man/boy to physically put his hands on a woman never ever!
    :(

  36. Maya What

    Oprah did say he needed help and she gave him her personal advice that he needed to seek professional help to become a better person. Sorry but I don’t think she said or did anything wrong. He beat the sh*t out of his girl friend left her beat up and bloody in a car for dead.
    Be a man and say Oprah was right and I took her advice and got the help I needed.Which he is doing now and deal with it.

    [Reply]

    chi Reply:

    @Maya What,
    I don’t think you’re getting this. Chris felt he and Oprah had developed a personal friendship during his work with her school. I see how he did feel like ‘slapped’ when she came out on the air full blast, throwing him in with all the domestic violence creeps with her statements.

    At the end of the day, Chris Brown is human, and as a human WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES and do things we are not proud of. It is so easy for haters to sit up and judge someone else, especially when they don’t know them. So what he caleed Rihanna “shawty” so what, yall act as though he called her a bitch or something. And as for the ones cracking on his vocabulary, Angie was messing up also. Everything Chris said is so true, I applaud him and I am proud of him. God has a plan for him, he didn’t bless Chris with all these talents for nothing. So I guess it is ok for a woman to put her hands on a man anytime she wants? One thing I wish Chris would do, is stop protecting Rihanna, she was just as wrong as he was, he doesn’t want to say what all she did, because she did wrong herself. And @ Maya What, you sound like a woman that hits on her man and thinks its ok, well its not. That is the main reason why women do not deserve equal rights, they should be able to pay the same consequences as a man. Keep moving forward Chris, everything will work out.

    Chris bulls@#*ting. Tell the truth. It’s more to the story than a text and her getting upset. That don’t make you turn to a boxer on crack. If his star status hit the bottom things will surface.
