“I don’t really think it’s a comeback album. I feel like it’s an album of triumph, like an underdog type of album,” Brown tells the magazine. “It’s more of me showing and proving everybody wrong. I don’t think I ever went anywhere. It’s not like I fell off the face of the earth.”
“What I like most about being Chris Brown is being able to influence the world with my music and smile, being able to inspire the world, fans singing your music, seeing people dressed like you but at the same time them wanting to be themselves, be individuals,” he continues. “I recognize my music touches people and everything I do negative or positive affects people all over the world. So that’s definitely a blessing and a curse.
“The thing I dislike most about my life is living up to everybody’s expectations, never being able to be like, ‘F**k it,’ and do what I want to do, not care about someone’s opinion. As artists we’re opinionated, but we definitely do care about the public’s opinion because that’s our consumer.”
Awwwwww, poor thang.
