Do you want to know what Chris Brown’s mind state is like these days, in the midst of his breakup with Karrueche Tran and his likely reunion with embattled (to say the least) ex Rihanna? Of course you don’t, but naturally, the perpetually oversharing Brown wants you to know, and it’s hard to resist watching. At least there’s no rapping this time, just a short video entitled “The Real Chris Brown,” in which Breezy contemplates his current romantic confusion from the back of a car, intercut with shots of the singer performing on stage and in deep thought solo.
For the morbidly curious, here’s a transcript and some screen shots:
Man, I don’t know man, we have fun at the club. I’m a little drunk, so I”ma be honest. See this? Y’all don’t really get the real Chris Brown, so I like to be honest now. Stressed out. Hah. That’s just real shit, man, I’m stressed out.
It ain’t about the music…y’know, I love my fans, I love everything, it’s just…you know, when you share a history with somebody, then you tend to fall in love with somebody else, it’s kinda difficult. You know, man? So it’s like…is there such thing as loving two people? I don’t know, I don’t know if that’s possible, but for me, I just…I feel like that. You know?
Y’all might…’What the fuck is he talking about right now?’ But I’m just saying…I’m being real. I don’t want to hurt either/or. It’s just me, I’m not trying to be a player, I’m not trying to be a…dog, I’m not none of that. That ain’t what I’m trying to be. They’re all crazy different, so it’s just like…I just care too much sometimes. I wanna live.
Niggas be stressing. That’s what niggas do. Life of Chris Brown.
Real talk. Sort of.
