Chris Brown Speaks On Rihanna, Drake and Drugs

*There’s no question that Chris Brown has endured a lot in recent years.

After remaining secretive for so long, the singer finally decided to open up about his drug use as well as his relationship with Rihanna and her dating Drake.

The following are highlights from Brown’s interview with Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning Show:

His drug usage
“I was off the syrup, the Xanax….that’s the hood cocktail. I was falling asleep on video sets, I was cussing people out randomly. I was doing crazy stuff. I would wake up and be like ‘aye man, what time we shooting this video?’ And they would be like ‘dude we shot it yesterday.’ I be like ‘Damn!’

He then realized, “This ain’t for me. As time progressed I was like let me chill out. I don’t want to be a zombie when I meet people. Or say the wrong thing, or end up punching somebody or doing something crazy…like I did…because I was under the influence of some bull.”

Rihanna —

“Me and her, we made amends. Like, we good. She’s my friend. I knew that was a mistake I would never do again. I look back at it like I was 17-18 and I’m 25 now so I look back it like ‘dang’. And I’m still doing community service and going to see the judge every month in a half over that situation.”

Rihanna dating Drake
“I look at it like this. I’m content with who I am so whoever decides to move on and do their thing I was cool. I mean, I was tight, but you also have to consider that was in the ‘thug Chris Brown era’. I was in my bag. At that time I was just all about running up on dudes, when I see you it’s this.”

So does he feel like Rihanna started dating Drake on purpose?

“She’s going to get mad when I say this but in a way I do. It’s understandable. It’s the game, we young. We do that at that age.”

The bottle throwing fight with Drake
“That was a ‘stick ya chest out’ contest. That’s all that was.”

Who made the initial call to squash his beef with Drake
“Honestly, his camp hit up my management and they was like we got this opportunity at the ESPYS, we want to do a spoof. So I was like cool. They were kind of hesitant because they didn’t know our temperature between each other. But I was just like I ain’t got time to be looking over my shoulder and be upset. It just doesn’t make me look good. But, I was just like let’s break this whole beef thing. Let’s just do something funny, let’s make light of the situation. It just shows growth and maturity.”
