The Word: Chris Brown ‘lost his virginity’ at age 8
He’s finally done it. Chris Brown finally said something that made me want to go easy on him. Not in the way that he probably hoped, though.
In an interview with the Guardian, the singer claims that he lost his virginity at age 8 to a girl who was 14 or 15. Brown apparently considers this something to be proud of: “It’s different in the country,” he said. “By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I’m saying? Like, girls, we weren’t afraid to talk to them; I wasn’t afraid. So, at 8, 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.”
Well… when most people hear that someone had a sexual encounter at age 8 with a teenager, they don’t think, “Oh wow, what a smooth 8-year-old sexual beast,” but rather, “Oh my God, that poor kid was sexually abused.” Because he was. I am genuinely sorry that that happened to Chris Brown and I hope he gets the help he needs to deal with it.
Chris Brown and Drake have quashed their beef and may even become pals, according to Page Six. The pair apparently met up at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas recently, which Drake and his crew attended specifically to catch Brown’s performance.
“Drake came on Friday with his whole crew, and watched Chris’ entire set,” a source said.
