I can’t hate people for making judgment on me, or making a decision of liking me or not liking me. All I can do is try to better as a person. And I’m good with knowing everything isn’t always going to be perfect.— Chris Brown
The most risky Chris Brown quotes that will activate your inner potential
You can't be old and wise, if you were never young and crazy.
You start to live when a moment feels like a lifetime
Bad things are always going to happen in life;
People will eventually hurt you, but you can't use that as an excuse to hurt someone back.
Follow your dreams. Just make sure to have fun too.
You are my greatest gift and I seal it with a kiss.
To be the best you have to beat the best
Haters keep on hating, cause somebody's gotta do it.
One thing people often want me to talk about is my public love life.
When it comes to my love life, the perception seems as though I am a player. But that’s not true. Love is something I am still learning. It’s just an obstacle that I haven’t yet mastered. I think that’s my biggest hurdle in life.
I don't know … but I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control.
Wave to the haters like nanananana.
Having the right people around you all the time is important.
I do take the acting seriously. But this is all fun. I look at it like smoke and mirrors. I still think it's a dream, but I ain't pinching myself yet.
A man's attire is only an outward projection of his inward self.
Girls are losing their virginity at 15, 16.
I'm not promoting that. But my songs are talking... about me becoming a man.
With fame, you can't trust everybody.
You can't depend on them being there for you as a person. They will only be there because of what you've got you as a person. They will only be there because of what you've got and what you can bring to their life. It's not a relationship-it's a leech.
When I was 12, all I wanted for Christmas was a trampoline or a four-wheeler.
I ended up getting both presents for Christmas.
I love sneakers on a girl. I don't know why, but I guess it's because I'm still a young. I really like just like a girl who has style - a girl who does her own thing, is unique in what she's wearing and works what she's got.
Since I'm always working, my best holiday memories are definitely when I can just go home and spend time with my family.
With the song 'This Christmas' I wanted to do something that was kind of different. I mean, Donny Hathaway is an amazing artist. So I wanted to bring my flavor to the song so when people over the age of 45 or 50 hear it they'll be like 'OK, he did his thing with that record.' It's like I can appeal to everybody and not just a younger demographic.
There's never a right time to say goodbye.
But I gotta make the first move 'cause if I don't you're gonna start hating me.
With dates I like to cater a girl. We do whatever she likes. If she was open to what I wanted to do, it probably wouldn't be a dull date, because I am a jock.
If you're sexy and you know it put your hands up in the air.
Put your hands up in the air, girl, put your hands up.
There's never a right time to say goodbye.
My personal life is the same. At the end of the day, this is just a job. I love what I do, and it's a great job. But it's like my alter ego. There's Chris Brown the singer. And there's Christopher Brown, the down-home Tappahannock boy that plays video games and basketball and hangs out.
I think I can beat Usher on the dance floor.
Michael Jackson is the reason why I do music and why I am an entertainer.
I am devastated by this great loss, and I will continue to be humbled and inspired by his legacy. My prayers are with his family. Michael will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. He's the greatest, the best ever. No one will ever be better.
My first album was me finding myself and my voice, finding how I sing.
I was rolling with the punches because everything was new to me.
Well the first time I performed, my mom was like how she is now when sees me on stage – all red, smiling from ear to ear. So I don’t want to mess up, [be]cause she’s smiling. Seeing my mom happy is kind of like an overwhelming feeling.
I love it when you talk that sh-t.
I'm not gonna say that I hate it, because I really respect Usher and I was influenced by him. But so many people compare me to him, and I don't think it'll ever stop. I just want to be my own artist.
I'm gonna do clothes, but stuff that kids can afford.
I want to get into the high fashion world very soon, but the stuff I want to start out with is the small stuff, for the kids, that anybody can afford the Nikes, or the Jordans, Or let's say they can't afford the big brand name clothes, so I would make a lower end line but still high-quality.
Loving is doing anything for them, thinking about them constantly and being able to spend your whole life with that person. Liking somebody is just like, 'Okay, I like them because of this, this and this, but I don't knkow if I am ready to be in love with them'.
I love attention. If I see a gang of girls? That makes me dance even more!
I used to feel so shy speaking to girls.
It was even worse when they were around their crew because they would diss me.
I like low-maintenance girls, but at the same time, classy.
She needs to take care of herself. But also be a girl who isn't afraid to get sweaty and play basketball, so it's cool if she's a tomboy.
My best kiss was on stage. Kelly Rowland from Destiny's Child gave me a really nice soft kiss on my lips during a performance on my birthday. It was amazing.
A defining moment in my life was my first actual VMA performance… That was the first time in my head I said I made it. Everybody knows who you are now. At that point everything in my life was flawless… I was just overwhelmed, I was happy, I was successful as an artist. I think I was in cruise control – like a little bit of bliss.
I didn't understand that I could sing until I was like 11 or 12.
My mom heard me singing around the house and she said, What are you doing? You really can sing! So then I started going to school and singing to the girls.
The worst moment was when I was performing and I was about to sing, but I choked. I had a tickle in my throat and I started coughing, and I couldn't get the words out. It lasted for like thirty seconds, but I got over it, and luckily the crowd didn't seem to care.
My mother taught me to treat a lady respectfully.
I'm just going to go out there knowing my teammates are depending on me to get the job done. I've got to go out and get it done, no letting down.
If men or women don't feel [the way I do], then don't live your life that way.
Whatever works for your relationship. It's not just sex. I feel like that about dinner, about taking care of who you're with.
I have a creative mind, so if I listen to the song, I have an idea, I thought of five or six months ago, I'll bring it back into the playing field. I can tweak ideas or make them better. Just come up with something and then we go from there.
I always imagined I could be what I wanted to be.
I'm 18 in this album. I'm not losing fans, and I'm not disrepecting women, but you reach the maturity of taking it to the next level with a girl. It was only necessary for me to have at least one song like that.
I can say that I am only human and I have made mistakes.
I can say that I try to live my life in the most true, honest way that I can. I am not perfect, no one is. No one is harder on me than me. No one can please everyone. No one can live in the past and expect to grow. I have been moving forward and hope that I am not defined by just a few moments in my life but all of the moments that will make up my life.
My mom told me as a youngster I was always intellectual, like as far as being able to adapt fast and quick. But I had a fun childhood, went to regular school.
I tried to stay away from the Euro beats, and not go totally pop.
Instead, I wanted to take the Quincy Jones approach. The record pays homage to the Stevie Wonders, the Michael Jacksons, the Sam Cookes. I wanted to put that classic essence of R&B and soul with the new age of music now. There’s a lot of live instruments, and a lot less Auto-Tune. I really wanted to demonstrate my vocal ability, creating the vibe of me singing along with a band.
I love Karrueche very much but I don't want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna, i'd rather be single allowing us to both be happy in our lives.
