Every time Chris Brown opens his mouth, he seems to stir up controversy. In a cover story for the October 14th issue of "JET" magazine, the 24-year-old R&B superstar raises eyebrows yet again. He gamely tackles questions about his messy love life and how he’s attempted to move forward after the 2009 http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CDUQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cnn.com%2F2013%2F02%2F08%2Fshowbiz%2Fcelebrity-news-gossip%2Frihanna-chris-brown-through-the-years%2Findex.html&ei=lvo8UvP5Cob28wSBjIGoDA&usg=AFQjCNFj8YIclhK4DBLc41a3wvGd-UAJXg&sig2=Y-WM5UmcLv-1vogIeBXXig&bvm=bv.52434380,d.eWU" rel="nofollow - Rihanna “incident” – then says he identifies with http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/13/justice/zimmerman-trial/index.html" rel="nofollow - Trayvon Martin because of his own struggles with racism, calls out Jay Z for his thug past and seems to liken his bad rep to the relationship between a slave and his master.

Here are some of the more interesting quotes from Brown’s interview:

On whether he relates to the everyday struggles of other young African-American males like Trayvon Martin:
“I identify with Trayvon 100 percent as far as living in 2013 and still dealing with blatant racism. This generation is so used to racism that it’s normal; we don’t care. We aren’t on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as ni**as.”

On whether it’s possible to mend his rocky relationship with the press:
“This is something I’ve been dealing with for the past maybe five years. Anybody with a voice – Tupac, Michael Jackson, the Notorious B.I.G. – gets formatted…except maybe for Jay Z, who is accepted by White America because he shakes hands and kisses babies. No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that he stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass.”

On when he decided to change his attitude:
“I got to the point where it’s only so much you can take from the master, you feel me? I’ve taken my fair share of lashings. I’ve dealt with the media. Instead of being an artist, I’ve been called a woman beater; I’ve been insulted in public and judged. And being able to not want to kill yourself at the end of the day is what made me say, ‘F**k it.’”

The spotlight on Brown will be intense for the next few months. The singer-turned-actor’s new movie, “Battle of the Year,” just hit theaters this weekend, and his sixth studio album, “X,” is due later this year. In the meantime, the Grammy winner is tired of folks expecting him to apologize for his bad boy behavior.

“I’m not perfect, and I don’t have to be,” he tells JET. “We are supposed to make mistakes. I’m not an android or a robot.”

You may be right . I can't understand why Trayvon and blacks not catching AIDS was talked about at the same time .  I guess chris allowed random questions that where group together .

Jet should be ashamed of themselves for that title  on the cover and CB needs to stop doing interviews like that.

To his credit he has not hit a woman since Stern Smile


He has to realize how hateful White people are. Yea they are racist but you gave them fuel, realize that. Now they're will never forget or forgive your "mistake" because you make them feel better about themselves.

Now how can you make yourself feel  better about yourself?

I thinks it's the hypocrisy of it all. I mean, you have women beaters, other deviants, and drug dealers spreading out about Chris Brown.

It would be like George Zimmerman blasting that 80 year old man for killing the 13 yr old.

I wonder how much editing they had to do to that photo to make it look like he's not on drugs.

He's been in the industry how long? And he doesnt know by now that people wont forget the fcksh*t he's done if he keeps on doin fcksh*t?

I'm so bored of him at this point. Whining about this sh*t isnt going to change is circumstances, so he needs to stop and focus on making decent music and, like Jay-Z and Robert Downey, jr. (he's mentioned him before in his whining), rehab his fckin image. 

It's obvious that he's being disproportionately targeted in the media because he's black, but nicca, stahp.
