Chris Brown talks about losing his virginity at just 8, and his legacy

I adore Chris Brown, but I'm totally not feeling the writer who published an article in the Guardian UK recently She appeared to be way to judgemental from the beginning. It seriously angered me that she wrote 'He is a stranger to the concepts of modesty and consistency.' What? Absolute bullsh*t. I can't even digest such negativity when you don't make the effort to a. understand Chris, and b. put your self in his shoes for a hot minute.
 
As a journalist I always opt for the inspiring, the commendable, the positive. Negative press, although it sells - I just can't stand. Especially if it's an attack or assumption about a celebrity. This writer in particular, honestly has no idea. At this point I've only extracted what I learnt about Chris, and what I think my gorgeous readers would also like to know about one of the most talented male artists of this generation.
Losing his virginity at age 8 (to a 15-year-old girl)
It’s different in the country.” Brown grew up with a great gang of boy cousins, and they watched so much porn that he was raring to go. “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.” (Now 24, he doesn’t want to say how many women he’s slept with: “But you know how Prince had a lot of girls back in the day? Prince was, like, the guy. I’m just that, today. But most women won’t have any complaints if they’ve been with me. They can’t really complain. It’s all good.”)
X may be his last album?
You can blame it on downloads, but the numbers are what they are. After this, maybe I’ll release a single every few months, or release a song; you’re still going to hear my music and videos.” His single sales still run into millions, he says, adding crossly, “But people won’t bring that up because of the album sales.
Leaving a positive legacy
I would really like to mean something to the world, instead of me just being this fungus.” Hang on a minute: fungus? “Yeah, like the decay of society. I don’t want to be the decay of society, I’d like to be the uplifting part.”
This is definitely achievable. Chris is still young and as long as he continues to focus on his music and giving back, stay out of trouble, avoid social media and be selective of the outlets he interviews with, people will recognize the good.
