Chris Brown Covers YRB Magazine

Chris Brown Covers YRB Magazine

Chris Brown puts his stunna shades on while gracing the cover of YRB magazine, on newsstands this week.

The 20-year-old singer sat down with YRB to talk about his music, mistakes and what he’s listening to now.

On his upcoming album:Graffiti is the art of me, the art of Chris Brown. That’s why I named it Graffiti – because graffiti is art. I know it’s a form of vandalism, but not lookin’ at it on a negative aspect, it’s art and my music is my graffiti.”

On his past mistakes: “…at the end of the day it’s not right to judge somebody when people make mistakes all the time… I regret every second of it… There’s always problems in relationships and it’s how we handle them and the choices we make that shapes them and makes them better.”

On what he’s listening to now: “Right now, not to be disrespectful to anybody, but I’m not fond on the industry that much. I’m more kind of to myself. I love Owl City and, um, Cobra Starship and even Miley Cyrus; that’s where my head is at with music now, going more pop and kind of different with those guys.”

    Here we go, gloryfying an abuser. Way to go!

    Here we go, gloryfying an abuser. Way to go, the media is really showing how low its values and morals really are by holding this monster up.

  • Tealeaf

    Beating on people is so wrong, it’s against the law..it’s not just a simple mistake like buying the wrong product. At the end of the day Fist Brown thinks abuse is not that big of a deal.

    Geez….

  • Cammie

    of course his fanatics will be in here any minute saying he made a simple mistake or claim Rihanna somehow made him beat her..is that why he is a felon with 5 yrs probation…I think Chris is just sorry he got caught. He will hit again.

    I’m buying it and I proudly can say I was not one who fell for Rihanna’s fake performance on TV, with that said, I did not buy hers…

    Yes fighting is wrong, he did not abuse her, they fought, she would not let go of his johnsons and so then he had to put her in a head lock and bit her ear until she let him go… That’s the main topic her LETTING GO like some of y’all should do and move on with your life. Rihanna forgave him and has since so called moved on until she wanted more money so why dont y’all just let him be and go buy his CD.. The man has talent and believe it or not he still has a lot of fans and young ones at that… Crawl is a beautiful song…Transformer is another one…

  • enoughalready

    her should’ve been here….

  • elle

    Love you Jared but I don’t understand why you would help promote someone who obviously is in denial about the abuse he inflicted upon someone and worse yet, is using the hype from that incident to garner press for his upcoming album.

  • m

    can’t say i’m a fan…. anymore

  • Kenza

    All of the personal stuff aside, he new album is really good!

  • happygirl

    He is a WOMENBEATER

  • http://www.mileyraydaily.com missdestinyhope

    Stop living in the past people! What happened, happened. It’s OVER. hating on him is NOT CHANGING THE FACT THAT IT HAPPENED. SO SHUT UP. He’s human, he made a MISTAKE. LIVE WITH IT.

    PS: I am shocked that he’s a Miley FAN. LOL!

  • GoodTimes

    Ditto @ #18 Let’s All Move On!!!

    Focus on Rihanna’s stripping if you can’t move off of Chris Brown!

  • black beauty

    sometimes it seems he’s sorry he got caught

  • http://oh-gerl.net vanessa

    looking good lenny kravitz lol

  • Smile4me

    Well i can’t wait to buy his album..

    I believe in forgiveness and people changing.. I know the cycle of abuse. and he was put into that situations as a child.. he obviously was affectd by the abuse he witnessed in the home.. If he can get help and help other young men and women .. i will glady support someone like that.. \

    These perfect celebs people worship are non-existent …I respect someone more who can admit their flaws.. Yet those who are doing worse are praised. Non of them are perfect. They all have different issues like us all..

  • Natalie

    I find it disgusting and absolutely ridiculous that a magazine editor thought I was a good idea to put Chris Brown on the cover of a magazine.

    Chris Brown does not genuinely believe he did something wrong when he physically abused a woman. He has no accountability or remorse. He is truly unaware of the seriousness of his abuse.

    Where is the regret? Where is the repentance? Where is the rehab he obviously needs? Maybe he could put a bit more effort into showing how sorry he is? I mean he isn’t even pretending he is sorry.

    Why are his fans still treating him like a superstar when he has shown he is not worthy of any sort of admiration. He is arrogant and violent.

    What a sad day it is when people think it is okay to promote and idolize an abuser of women!
    Shame on YRB!!! SHAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sad

    I wasn’t a Chris Brown fan until now! I am so sick, when is enough going to be enough! Ted Kennedy walked away without one charge from killing a woman and was elected over and over to a senate seat! He was drinking and driving and killed a person! No charges! Chris has a criminal record now, he is serving his community service and he is taking his anger management class. He has lost fans, money, popularity and the girl he loved. He has taken responsibility. However that isn’t enough! So it will never be enough for you people ! Sad that at 19 a young man makes a huge mistake yet you refuse to acknowledge that is trying to do the right thing and be a better person. I just hope some one you love doesn’t do anything wrong and need help and forgiveness. Karma has a way of happening.

  • Maria

    @Tealeaf if beating someone is against the law then why didn’t Elin Woods get booked and charged for beating up Tiger. Why are you not on Tiger Woods site bashing Elin-because you are paid to bash Chris Brown. I’m sick of your pr rubbish. You post under different names over and over trying to get other posters to bash Brown-just to lift Rihanna’s rubbish up. Face it her stuff is not that good. Too bad Rihanna’s Cd can’t stand on it’s own two feet. It need pr phony hype to keep it going.

  • Maria

    My friends and I are going out to buy Chris Brown’s Cd when it is released. I will buy 3 copies. So keep your posting under different names up all you want. You are not stopping him because I know many others that are going to buy his Cd to.

  • media robot

    GOD BLESS YOU CHRIS BROWN! Don’t worry God got you and HE see’s all those who judge you with hate in their heart. You unlike many owned up to your mistake and you’re getting help for the ONE bad mistake that you made.

    Don’t you dare believe that you are a Woman Beater for making a bad mistake. Learn from it, Grow from it and NEVER do it again. I’ll say it until I don’t feel like saying it again…as a woman who has survived Domestic Violence you know the difference from a Woman Beater and a young person who made a bad mistake in an argument that went left.

    NEVER stay with anyone who makes you that upset…nobody is worth loosing your life.

  • kickass

  • walaludacris

    ugh, five days left!!!! can’t wait!

  • u are not perfect

    People are killing me with these comments. Chris shouldn’t be forgiven, but its okay for us to make countless mistakes and be forgiven. Roman P. can rape and drug a 13 year old girl, stay on the run for years, and hollywood stands up for him. He was released yesterday, but Chris who is 20 and never been in trouble is expected not to move forward. What he did was horrible, but he took responsibility, judged, and sentenced. Fine, don’t forget, but move forward. It’s been almost a year and people still will not let him live. The double standard is crazy. . I won’t even start on Tiger’s wife who ran after him when he was leaving the violent situation. But, that’s fine because she is a woman. If Tiger had hit her, he would be in jail .Everybody is fine with the fact that Rhianna admitted to hitting him in the past. It still does not excuse his behavior,but violence begats violence. Everyone should keep their hands to themselves. I hope you or one of your family members never need forgiveness.

  • Drew

    While I don’t condone what Chris Brown did, living in the past and assuming people can’t change from their mistakes is pathetic. Would be nice if people would stop dwelling on the mistake he made, and get over it already. What’s done is done.

    And yeah, he’s shown zero remorse in all of this? Mhmm. Ignorance is bliss, right? He’s shown remorse on many occasions. Remorse doesn’t necessarily require eating someones ass to say you’re sorry.

    It must suck to live with such ignorance.

  • Jaimee

    @ u are not perfect

    Did you just compare a dude slapping his girlfriend around a couple times, to a serial pedophile preying on 13 year old girls?

    Jesus Christ I can’t believe some of you people.

  • Garrett

    STOP HATEIN AND Let him get back up to the top again. Have you ever heard of a 2ND CHANCE? IF THIS WAS HIS 2ND TIME DOING SOMETHING LIKE THIS THEN YOU CAN HATE!
    ITS WRONG TO NOT LET SOMEONE START OVER AGAIN AND SHOW HOW SORRY HE/HER IS. YOU KNOW! YOU KNOW, YOU WOULDN’T LIKE IT IF SOMEONE DID YOU LIKE THAT! =
