Is this the worst lie ever or are the people of Tappahannock some kind of genetically-modified, prematurely developed sexual fiends?
Chris Brown rarely does himself any favours when he makes a public statement of any kind, but rather than whipping up a load of bad press for himself, this time he has just left us scratching our heads. The singer claims to have lost his virginity at the tender age of 8-years-old, stating in an interview with The Guardian that he and those he knew back in his hometown of Tappahannock, Virginia were much more open to sexual experimentation and at a much (much, much) younger age than anywhere else in America.
The singer rarely makes any comments that go without raising questions
"It's different in the country. By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I'm saying?" He stated in the interview. He continued, "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."
His claims are absurd for more than the fact that the average male doesn't develop sexually until the age of 11-12-years-old at the earliest. Despite this, he was steadfast in his claim that he lost his virginity aged 8, to a girl who was aged 14 or 15. Still, if Brown was subject to precocious puberty at 8, it would offer some reasoning behind his anti-social behaviour, as most premature developers are known to develop adverse problems in social behavior and psychological development (says Wikipedia). This would give a reasonable explanation as to why he always seems to be acting like a tool, forcing him to do stuff like bragging about losing his virginity at an inconceivably young age, and beating up women.
The singer also discussed his "Rihanna incident"
"You know how Prince has a lot of girls back in the day? Prince was, like, the guy," Brown went on to say. "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."
The controversial R&B singer went on to discuss the 2009 run-in Rihanna had with his fists, describing it as "probably the biggest wake-up call for me."
He said in the interview, "I had to stop acting like a teenager, a crazy, wild young guy. 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' throw tantrums, don't be a baby about it."
We wonder what Brown's next boast will be
