Chris Brown Tells Jet Magazine He Doesn’t Understand Why Jay Z Gets A “Pass”



Chris Brown still doesn’t understand that it’s his arrogance that’s holding him back and nothing else.

The troubled singer recently sat down with Jet magazine to detail his trials and tribulations following the 2009 assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Although it’s been four years, since the assault, the singer doesn’t seem to understand why’s he continued to be crucified for his past sins.

From probation violations, club brawls, a love triangle, Twitter rants, disputes with disgruntled neighbors, and a recent fender-bender he tells the magazine he’s trying to just be a normal 24 year old.

JET: You’ve been in the spotlight for over 10 years. Have you ever wished for a regular life?
Chris Brown: I try to grasp the concept of being a normal guy sometimes. But when you start singing professionally at 14, 15… I look back at it and I’m only 24, but I’m starting to feel old. I’m not trying to be younger or older. I’m just trying to be my age and move with the time.

On his anger management he says,“You have to go through the struggle before you can get to the good part. I don’t try to lash out at people, or be as mad or impulsive as I used to be.”

But he can’t help but notice there is favoritism among the media when it comes to certain artists. He even goes as far as taking a jab at rapper and mogul, Jay Z.

“No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that [Jay Z] stabbed somebody and sold drugs…He gets a pass.”

On facing the constant media scrutiny and on-going legal problems Brown adds, “I got to the point where it’s only so much you can take from the master, you feel me?” he says. “I’ve taken my fair share of lashings.”

Putting aside his own issues, for a moment, the singer discusses the controversial Trayvon Martin case and injustice the black youth continue to face. “This generation is so used to racism that it’s normal; we don’t care. We aren’t on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as ni**as,” he explains.

To hear more of what the singer had to say, the newest Jet magazine issue will be available on newsstands Monday, September 23rd.

We’re a bit confused as to why anyone from Brown’s camp allowed this interview to see that light of day. It doesn’t help to paint the singer in a positive light. In fact, it does quite the opposite.

And yes, Chris Brown, we’re all human who’ve made and will make mistakes but the remorseful and humbled will prosper the fastest — something you obviously haven’t learned.

We wish you the best.

    What CB fails to realize is that he has total control over how he is perceived.. Ppl judge you by what you put out there. Yes Jay Z has a past, and we all do.. But Jay Z hasnt given us anything negative to say about him since. Its the fact that CB continues to add fuel to the fire with these rants and interviews. He can change how we view him. He just has to be consistent with it. One day hes a good guy and the next day hes going off on twitter. And no one is really even checking for him right now anyway. So he just needs to have a seat!

  • Couldn’t agree more.

    I don’t think it was a good idea for Breezy to throw Jay under the bus, but I don’t blame him.

  • Poor Chris. He always has a pity party for himself. When he starts taking responsibilities for his actions, he’ll be a better person.

    chris cant take ownership for chris- thats y chris is where chris is

  • What Chris Brown needs to understand is that he is responsible for the continued downfall of his career. Yes, he beat Rihanna years ago and that was the start to his career sliding, but with time, we all know majority forgives. But, Chris’ actions in cursing out those with profanities on Twitter like a little child along with his rants when asked about his abusive pass and her questionable behavior on Twitter will not see him rise to the spot he was at if he doesn’t change quickly. It’s like as soon as there are signs the public is showing forgiveness to Chris- he goes on a mental break-down.

  • Does he ever always want people to feel sorry for him… he says he doesn’t want to be younger, but his actions are that of an under developed mind.

    he needs some time to himself away from it all

    He’s right, people have short memories when it comes to Jigga….but Chris should take responsibility for the way his life is now

  • But Jay paid for his mistakes. More importantly, that’s when he changed. He changed who he hung out with. How he presented himself. Jay took his nonsense and changed his life. Chris hasn’t changed. He’s going worse.

    How did Jay pay for his mistakes? He didn’t serve any time, he wasn’t charged. Changing your friends isn’t punishment. Jay is 40 something, when he was 24 he was nothing but nonsense, when he was 30, too, and damn near 40. Jay didn’t get caught, there’s a difference.

    Chris needs to understand the part he plays in all of this. Yes, people attack him because he’s an easy target, but knowing this, he needs thicker skin and to get off of twitter.
