Chris Brown has opened up about his confusing relationship to Rihanna as he continue to promote his latest album ‘X’.
The R&B singer has been on a promotional tour to support his latest record, but it seems that every interview he goes to, people only want to know about one thing — Rihanna.
The ‘Loyal’ hit maker responded to claims him and his former girlfriend were still feuding after Breezy made a surprise appearance at a charity basketball game last month with his ex sitting court side with a nasty look on her face whenever she saw Chris.
Brown denies that there’s any bad blood between the two. In fact, their “friendship” couldn’t be better.
Chris clarifies that he’s not in a relationship with Rihanna. “We’re friends,” he tells Entertainment Tonight. “Nothing too serious… We’re not trying to start a life together right now, we’re just having fun.”
Another interesting story emerged when lyrics to Chris Brown’s song ‘Drunk Texting’ had fans thinking he was shading Rihanna subliminally, as the track’s lyrics include: “If by chance you’re laying next to someone else right now/I hope it’s the worst sex ever”
In response to claims he was aiming that particular line at his ex, Chris stressed that artists tend to do things for shock value at times, especially when it comes their music.
The 25-year-old explains that the lyric wasn’t aimed at Rihanna. It was actually a carefully thought through move to get the fans talking and the album buzzing.
“Oh no I think it’s just the fan’s perception or the media’s perception at all times because of our history. But whenever we do music, people can make the assumption and that’s fine because if they buy more because they think that, then go ahead and buy a thousand copies!”
Well, at least he’s being honest about the fact that he writes songs for people to react to them in a certain way. After all, that seems to be the only way you can sell records these days.
Whether these two are actually friends or not, I doubt it.
Rihanna can’t stand Chris’ girlfriend, Karrueche, while the bajan beauty is still said to be dating rapper Drake.
