Chris Brown discussed his feelings for Rihanna and Karrueche Tran during a recent interview with Big Boy, host of Power 106's morning show in Los Angeles.
In February, Brown said he was "in love with two people" in a video he posted online. Brown released the footage because he wanted to be honest.
"With this video I did, I put a webisode out explaining my situation. With that, me being honest with myself," he told Power 106. "Me and her have history, and me and her are always gone be best of friends, and we're working on our friendship now."
Brown acknowledged that some were upset with his admission. "People say, 'How can you say it?'" he explained. "I guess when you feel it, you'll know it. … It's just a touchy situation."
Brown said Tran, who he was in a relationship with at the time, was upset that he made a public statement without talking to her first. "When you do that, you have to do it for yourself," he said. "You can't do it for everybody else's feelings, and I love them to death. But it's just that at that time, I needed to be out there because I can't just be like, 'This is how I feel.' … [But] they have to accept you for being honest."
A snippet of "Nobody's Business," Brown's new duet with Rihanna leaked this week. Rihanna discussed the song Thursday during a Facebook chat interview with Andy Cohen.
"Nobody's Business" is basically the way I look at everything regarding my personal life. Even though you have to witness it, it's being documented at every second. It still is mine. This is mine at this point. When it gets to my music at this point. I'll give and I'll give. I just feel like I need to keep a little bit for me that I get to decide."
