Chris Brown has made it pretty clear that he doesn’t love the media. And we can’t say we don’t understand why. Since that tragic incident he had with Rihanna that left her bruised and bloodied in 2009, Chris has become one of the most hated black celebrities in the media. Of course every move any celebrity makes will always be dissected accordingly in the media for the public’s consumption, but Chris seems to get more negative press than anyone. And this is one of the reasons the young R&B singer and his team opted out of giving anymore interviews earlier this year. But it appears that things might have changed (not to mention that Chris is rumored to have new management) because the singer is finally granting interviews again. But this time, Chris is taking full control of the dialogue and only discussing positive aspects of who he really is. And despite the very overwhelming amount of negative press, Chris says he just want to become a positive public figure. The timing couldn’t be better, especially since he’s rumored to be seeing Rihanna romantically again (Karrueche too) and just got shredded in the press for his choice in a Halloween costume.
In a recent interview with Terrence J. who is making his debut as a host on E! News, Chris says:
“I think, [it’s] that I’m 100 percent dedicated in everything that I do. I want to embody everything that’s positive.
I’ve accomplished all I need to accomplish in my life as far as me being able to say I can successfully sing, I can dance onstage with the greatest,” he continued. “At the end of the day, when I need to be great is when people can say I’ve helped out the world. It first starts here, helping myself, but what I want to do is bring peace to the world.”Not to sound all Teen USA!”
And in related news, Chris has something to celebrate. He has recently launched his own non-profit organization, Symphonic Love Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting and creating art programs for youth, while encouraging acts of public service.
Congrats to Chris.
