Chris Brown speaks on post-prison weight loss and what he learned from the time he spent locked up.
Chris Brown's new albumX is currently in stores, and now that the singer is out of jail, he's been getting back into the usual artist routine, which includes things like interviews. The singer sat down with Mario Lopez for Extra recently, and spoke about the weight gain many people noticed, as well as his prison stint experience.
"[It was] a humbling experience," Breezy said in reference to being locked up. "It was definitely one of the things I’ll never forget. I think for me, it’s now about what’s the purpose and what’s the goal that Chris Brown as a person and Chris Brown as an artist is trying to portray. And with me, it’s always been positivity, but now it’s more of not just speaking it into existence but actually doing it." He added, "Nobody's invincible. No amount of celebrity status...can deter you away from the real if you make a mistake."
As for the weight gain, Chris Brown has since shed the extra pounds, and spoke on how he was able to do it so quickly.
"My normal weight is like 180," he revealed to Mario. "I was 215 when I got out of jail. After that I was so conscious, I couldn’t even fit my jeans, none of my clothes. I was scared to go out, I was like ‘Man, people gonna see me, I look fat.’ So after a while, I went and played a lot of basketball, a lot of cardio. Then I did the ‘New Flame’ video, we rehearsed for that, the BET Awards, couple other shows. I was just always dancing, always dancing, trying to get my body back in shape." he added, "Nobody's invincible. No amount of celebrity status...can deter you away from the real if you make a mistake."
