“At the end of the day, if I walk around apologizing to everybody, I’m gonna look like a damn fool,” he’s quoted in the article

But Brown was definitely not referring to Rihanna, we’ve learned, and was trying to express the frustrations of fame and the evolution he underwent from at first thinking everyone was his friend.

The quote that has drawn the most controversy is when the singer was talking in general about becoming a pariah. “But you can’t blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don’t want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap.”


Not so, we’ve learned. Brown was talking in general about the Fame Game and how certain people protect their reputations even at the cost of abandoning friends.

But after all this time the star was definitely NOT referencing Rihanna but trying to make a broader point about the entertainment industry, we’ve learned.
