Chris Brown Talks Charitable Work, Love & Painting In Prestige Magazine

Contributing Writer Nov 8 12 1 Comment

Chris Brown as we all know is in and out of the media. He has been trying to re-build his reputation with those who have put negative views on him and his past. Brown has been working to make the world know him for his charitable work and ‘uplifting humanity‘ and explains in the latest issue of Prestige Magazine. 

Brown shut the world and media out refusing interviews and photo shoots, but recently has had a change of heart and ready for the world to see the new and improved Chris Brown in a positive limelight.

Brown took time out to cover and interview in Hong Kong’s Prestige magazine.  Chris takes some classy photos in Prada, Roberto Cavalli, Tom Ford and Armani. Check out some of the interview below:

On his love of painting:

“I’ve been painting secretly since I was a kid. A lot of people didn’t know that it was my hobby. I focused on doing the bad stuff at first with graffiti and vandalizing. But as you get older, you start studying art books and sketchbooks in the libraries. I started getting better, like maybe three or four years ago. I met Ron English and Kid Zoom [Ian Strange] and they were just teaching me different techniques for painting. So my art started growing and I started doing it on my own. I finally got people to recognize it and I did a couple of art galleries – one in LA and one in New York – and I sold four out of my seven paintings. You know, I’m new. But my feet are in the water and that’s all it takes. I don’t think I want to conquer painting. It’s just something I love to do.”

 

On his charitable work with St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and Best Buddies:

“I’ve been involved with [those] since I was 15, 16. It’s not about recognition, because that’s not what satisfies me. The satisfaction is people that are getting helped or are benefiting from whatever I donate, whatever I contribute to their lives. I don’t like it to be publicized. If there are cameras around, it’s cool. But I do it from the heart. When I go on TV and do my videos, that’s the artist Chris Brown. But when I go and do [charity work] it’s just me – it’s just Christopher.”

 

On his foundation Symphonic Love:

“Symphonic Love does programs in schools, like with my school back home. Musical programs and helping kids with disabilities. I do a lot of stuff with Best Buddies that coexists with that. The name comes from a tattoo that I’ve got [runs hand across his chest] – something that’s over my heart right now. So my heart is where it’s at. The tattoo ‘symphonic love’ encompasses the positivity of what I’m trying to do – uplifting humanity.”
