5 Things We Learned from Chris Brown's Latest Provocative Interview

Getty ImagesWhether it's on Twitter or in an interview, Chris Brown always has a lot to say. The singer opened up about losing his virginity, his tattoos, and his life goals in a recent interview with the UK publication The Guardian. Here are the highlights:

1. He Lost His Virginity at 8
The girl was 14 or 15 he says. “It’s different in the country,” Brown explained, referring to his childhood in Virginia. And he was ready at that age because of all the porn he watched with his cousins. Seriously. “By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I’m saying?” he explained. “Like, girls, we weren’t afraid to talk to them; I wasn’t afraid. So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it. You can be the best at it.”

2. He's Great in Bed
But he won't say how many women he's slept with. ”You know how Prince had a lot of girls back in the day? Prince was, like, the guy. I’m just that, today. But most women won’t have any complaints if they’ve been with me. They can’t really complain. It’s all good," Brown added.

3. The Rihanna Incident Taught Him a Lot
“You can talk with all my girls that I did mess with before, and it’s never been a violent history,” he said, adding, ”But at the same time, I learned from it, and it was almost like… I wouldn’t say it happened for a reason, but it was something to trigger my mind to be more of a mature adult. To handle myself in situations, don’t throw tantrums, don’t be a baby about it.”

4. His Neck Tattoo Isn't of Rihanna's Face
“This is not Rihanna’s face… I just got a tat,” he said. “Like I say, a tat is on my body, so it’s personal. I liked how it looked, so I thought I’d get it done. It’s all good.”

”My favorite line is, ‘F*ck you.’ I like giving the world a big f*ck you," he added, for good measure. "Every tattoo I have is a big f*ck you. So it’s just, like, this is just me, and I’m the guy who’s going to be just the same guy at all times.”

5. He Has Goals
He wants ”to sell ground-breaking numbers on an album. Just to be able to have that moment to say, I did it. So as like, I have a stamp. I would really like to mean something to the world, instead of me just being this fungus… [like] the decay of society. I don’t want to be the decay of society, I’d like to be the uplifting part.”
