If there’s one thing Chris Brown is an expert in, its public blacklisting.
Ray Rice’s recent incident probably brought back chilling memories for the singer who was Rice’s situation just five years ago. However his incriminating evidence was a picture and an equal megastar as himself.
So it’s only appropriate out of anyone we’d care what Chris had to say on the whole situation. MTV News sat down with the star—who was sentenced to five years probation for assaulting Rihanna—what advice he would give to Rice or anyone else in the same situation.
“To Ray, or anybody else—because I’m not better than the next man—I can just say I’ve been down that road. I deal with situations and I’ve made my mistakes too, but it’s all about how you push forward and how you control yourself—With me, I deal with a lot of anger issues from my past— not knowing how to express myself verbally and at the same time not knowing how to cope with my emotions and deal with them and understand what they are.”
Having to seek out side help from others to get past this major hurdle in his life and career, he’s passed that along. “I think help is great,” he added.
“I still talk to my therapist twice a week, and it helps me to…if I’m frustrated and I’m dealing with something, to vent and say what I’m going through so I can hear from an actual clinical person, ‘this is how you should react,’ or ‘it’s good to feel this way because feelings, emotions, and energy are supposed to come and go. It’s not supposed to stay there, you’re not supposed to keep it inside, because it’ll bottle up and you’ll become a monster.”
