Chris Brown Talks Jail, Lean Addiction, Rihanna, & Drake with Ebro

Chris Brown

Chris Brown stopped by Hot 97′s “Ebro in the Morning” on Friday for an in-depth interview. The “Loyal” singer, who recently settled his lawsuits including the one in D.C., opened up about everything from his past with Rihanna to squashing his beef with Drake to his time in jail.

During his sit-down with Ebro, Peter Rosenberg, and Laura Stylez, Breezy admitted that he was unsure where his career would take him after jail. “Once you do that, it kinda makes you mature faster and see what’s really important and what your focus is and what you gotta do in your career,” he said.

It was Drake’s camp who initially reached out about the ESPYS skit. So far, Nicki’s single “Only” is the only collaboration the two have recorded. When asked if there will be more he said, “Hopefully. They gotta cut the check.”

The most Chris charges for a feature is $250,000, and he demands a cut of the publishing. “If I’ma give you a No. 1, I need to capitalize off it as well,” he said.

He claimed that he lost $20 million in endorsements due to his bad reputation, but said that he makes 50 percent of all sales off his album.

He and Trey Songz are gearing up to launch their joint tour. The tour does not have a title, but he has been considering “One Night Stand” and “The Morning After” as potential names for the two-hour show.

He also revealed that he was addicted to lean (“the hood cocktail”) and found it impairing his work. “I was turning up. I was off the syrup and Xanax,” he said. “It wasn’t conducive to me. I was falling asleep on video sets, I was cussing people out randomly, I was doing crazy stuff.”

Through his trials and tribulations, he’s learned to be comfortable in his own skin. “I don’t have to prove myself,” said Chris. “I’m comfortable being a singing, dancing, painting, great guy. I don’t have to be tough.”

Plus, hear what he had to say about his girlfriend of four-and-a-half years Karrueche Tran, battling Usher in a dance-off, and what he fears most.

Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and Tom Ford

Rihanna stepped out in style to honor Tom Ford at the amfAR Inspiration Gala in Hollywood on Wednesday. The “Stay” singer turned heads in a white Tom Ford gown with a high slit and nipple pasties while mingling with Justin Timberlake, host Gwyneth Paltrow, and Miley Cyrus, who opted for a black bondage dress.

RiRi presented the designer with amfAR’s Award of Inspiration. “Everyone looks good in Tom Ford,” she told the chic crowd. “Over the past 20 years, Tom Ford has been honored with every major fashion award there is. Tonight, we honor him both for his incredible talent and for what he stands for. We honor him for doing good while making us look good.”

She supported the cause by dropping $35,000 on a pair of Harry Winston diamond link earrings and $100,000 on the photograph “Elizabeth Taylor at the Eden Roc” by Willy Rizzo, with all proceeds benefiting AIDS research. Timberlake also opened his wallet, bidding $80,000 on a Damien Hirst painting.

Chris Martin kicked off the evening with a performance, while Diana Ross closed it out with her anthem “I’m Coming Out.”

Rihanna and Ester Dean

Ester Dean was back in the lab with two megastars. The singer-songwriter behind hits for Beyoncé and Katy Perry shared photos from her recent studio sessions with Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.

Dean, who wrote several hits for RiRi including “Rude Boy” and “What’s My Name,” reunited with the pop superstar and shared a black-and-white photo of the two of them on Instagram.

Rihanna has been quietly working on a new album with hitmakers including Elijah Blake, Yung Berg, and DJ Mustard, who submitted a ballad. “It’s not like anything you’ve ever heard from me before. Some new shit. New sound,” Mustard told Rap-Up TV.

After collaborating on “Pills N Potions,” Nicki Minaj also reconnected with Dean to work on The PinkPrint, due November 24. “That smile means ‘today was a good day,’” said Ester, who posed alongside Nicki.

Ester recently wrapped filming Pitch Perfect 2 and has been busy heading up her own label Eye Know a Secret Records alongside Interscope. One of the first releases is her Juicy J-assisted single “Twerkin 4 Berkin.”
