VIDEO: It Seems Chris Brown Is REALLY A Changed Man…His Interview This Monday Suggests So

Chris-Brown-on-the-Today-Show

It is either Chris Brown has hired a new PR who has talked some sense into his head or he is actually a changed man as he claims.

Chris Brown stopped by this morning on the Today’s Show to chat to Matt Lauer and impressively, Chris Brown discussed the whole Rihanna ‘battery’ subject which he has refused to talk about in the past.

It is not only his decision to discuss the above issue that won many hearts, but also his acceptance of wrong doing, his positive attitude and the manner he composed and answered the interview questions were first of a kind.

Is Chris Brown really a changed man? From the interview below, we can say YES but we hope we are not being fooled so that he can sell his new album, coming out this summer…

Check out the interview below

On Being a Changed Man
I’ve been humbled by the whole experience. From me losing everything, you know, to me having to regain public opinion or whatever it is — but most importantly,  knowing that what I did was totally wrong and having to kind of deal with myself and kind of forgive myself in the same breath and being able to apologize to, Rihanna and be that man that can be a man, you know?

On People Who May Think He’s Just Doing This to Sell Records
I think everybody is entitled to their opinion. For me, it’s just a learning process. You know, I have to just take it one day at a time. I can’t make everybody like me. I think for my album as far as what I’m promoting, the single or whatever, it’s just about me being positive. Whatever I’m doing with my music is to inspire the world and inspire people that have been in my situation or even anybody who’s trying to learn from it.”

On His Relationship With Rihanna
“We’re fine. I think in the actual interview they tried to depict that [we broke up]. I think they [got that] from an interview from like a year ago. Yeah, we’re fine.”

“I think it’s just me proving myself once again. Knowing that what I did was wrong, and never doing it again. So as far as me and (Rihanna) are concerned, she knows my heart, and I know her heart. So I’m not really focused on the negative. Everything about it is positive for me. I did my 52 weeks of counseling and learned that it was absolutely wrong. It was counseling, a 52 week program. Every Monday in Virginia. I remember going and just sitting in there [thinking], ‘Why did I do what I did?’ And really wanting to just get help.

Bow Wow Says Guys Should Wrap It Up To Avoid Baby Mama Drama

Bow Wow was recently in court over child support issues and he agreed to pay $3000 dollars per month to his baby’s mother in support as the court look into making a final judgment…

I guess the baby Mama drama and the child support issues are knocking hard on Bow Wow’s head…If he has to do things again,he would surely have wrapped thing up. He seems to have learnt the hard way.

Chatting to Q Deezy of Philly’s 107.9 about his child support situation, Bow Wow said he preferred to pay child support so that he could keep his child’s mother out of his business.

Check out excerpts of the chat below

Here is the honest truth. I felt like I wanted to be on child support. I felt like that was the best thing for our situation.  I’m sure there’s a lot of men out there listening and their baby mama don’t like the new chick, you know what I’m saying. So for me to move on with my life and let her know that everything is still gravy, I felt like the best thing for us to do was to go about it that way. Which I love it because its confirmed money to my daughter.  So I’m fine with it and I’ve wanted to be on [child support] so that I can live my life and not feel like I’m attached to a woman or that a woman got screens on me. I don’t like that.

On whether he is going through financial problems
Hell no! Sometimes, it’s worth doing it so that you can have that freedom. Ain’t nobody wanting to be dealing with a woman who keeps blowing you up. I’m happy about it and now she can live her life peacefully. She can do whatever she wants to do and date whomever she wants to date and for me, I’m just going to continue on with my career and living life. I’m happy as can be.

For the record, I have no issues with my [baby mama], like not one.  I just want to let all them young fellas out there know that there’s nothing wrong with having a kid but just make sure you have it with the right one. But I love mine and I love my situation but if you don’t want no headache and no issues definitely wrap that thing up.

Check out excerpts of the interview below;

On what she wants for Chad
I would like for him to tell me that he got help and that he is working on himself, whenever I talk to my sister or my girlfriend, I always say I want the best for him. I really do! And he is a good guy who made a bad choice. He loves football, he is very driven, a great dad. He made a bad choice that destroyed his life and I hate that I’m connected to that, I do, but it was his choice. It wasn’t mine.

It would have to take sometime [for us to speak again]. I love him very much and I think that us being away from each other is the right thing. So when is he going to say sorry? [...] It’s the hardest thing in the world to walk away from someone that you really love/ But you have to walk away because I have to protect myself.

On the events leading up to the head-butting incident
And then the next thing I know, he grabbed me by here [pointing to her head] and he head-butted me. I felt blood coming down my face… and I looked at him and I said, ‘You just head-butted me?’ And it just — everything just felt if it was in slow motion.

He was gone to me, like, it wasn’t him. He got out of the car, really, really quick and ran into the house, and I said to myself, ‘I need to get out of here.

On the decision to file for divorce
I said to myself, ‘I’m never going to go through that again, ever. I don’t think any woman should ever have to feel like that or be fearful of her husband.

I was a very good fiancé and wife to Chad. I did everything I could to make his life better. The person on ‘Basketball Wives’ is not the person at home. I don’t think he would marry me if I was.”

Drake Says ‘Rihanna Is The Most Iconic Female Right Now – Next To Nicki Minaj’…Really?

In a chit chat with Google Music few weeks ago during the promo for his new album, ‘Take Care’, Drake mentioned that Rihanna is the most iconic female out right now, next to  Nicki Minaj (his label mate). .. REALLY?

Check out excerpts and video below…

On being consistent and making quality music
I’m not the guy that would ever be able to make surface music with no substance. I think all my projects, hopefully, I’m working through some form of emotion because I think that’s what music is about. It’s about connecting and people being able to relate.

In five years, I like people to view “Take Care” at that point as another point of consistency. Another over delivery on something people thought I was going to drop the ball on. I think every time I say I’m about to do something people are waiting for me to fumble. That’s probably one of the biggest motivations behind a lot my raps is the amount of people that want me to fall or whatever. I think that should be the motivation for most rappers. The further you climb towards the top, the more hands you have on your pants leg dragging you to the bottom. I wear really strong pants.

On collaborating with Rihanna with the title track “Take Care”
I think my goal was something that moves. I really wanted to bring her into our world but still allow her to be herself. I think she really shines bright. She comes from a place that’s so rich in culture, so rich in music, but being what I feel like, the most iconic female period right now—next to Nicki Minaj, of course… [Nicki is] just doing incredible, she’s my favorite person.

On making music for women
Kendrick Lamar says something on my album that rings so true. “Women are the tastemakers for the music that we make.” Women buy records and women fall in love with music and listen to it when they fall asleep. It moves them and I have this fascination with getting into the minds of women and truly letting them know how I think as a man and letting them know how I view them as women. That should appeal to men as well.

On his legacy
I want people to really feel like I knew Drake while he was on this Earth. I know everything about him. There were no secrets, there was nothing that he hid, no feelings that he concealed. In five years, hopefully I have a couple more projects out that surpass Take Care, but I would like for them to say I remember that moment when I wasn’t sure what was gonna happen and Drake delivered an album that served a purpose in my life.

I am determined to become a better student of the game and I knew I had to work at it,” says Vick. “I was young when I was in Atlanta. I’m older now. I’ve been through a lot and I think I’ve matured. I had some good years there, but I’m just so thankful to be in Philadelphia right now. I could not have landed in a better city. This is my home. This is where I want to be, and I take this opportunity seriously.

I never thought this day would come,” Vick said.

[Two years ago], I was happy just to be on a team. When I was in prison, I prayed for another opportunity. And when I signed with the Eagles, that opportunity had come. I was ecstatic at that point, and I’m even happier now.
