Chris Brown spoke via phone with the Kyle and Jackie O Show on 2Day FM in Australia, where the R&B star opened up about his relationship with Rihanna as well as his 24th birthday. Talking about celebrating his birthday solo, meaning without Rihanna, Brown said, “Yeah, Imma do it solo. I mean, at the end of the day, shawty doing her thang, she on the road … It’s always gonna be love. I’m just gonna do me. I’m a grown man. Just gotta fast forward.”
Brown added that despite their split, the pair will always share a love for each other. “The way I look at it is, I am always going to love that person,” Brown explained. “But people have differences and people have different wants and needs. And at the end of the day, she’s a young girl. I can’t really be focused on wife-ing somebody that young. At the end of the day. And I’m young too. So I can’t focus on that right now. I just need to fast forward and be a man and be the best Chris Brown I can be, instead of worrying about whoever else is going to be in my side pocket.”
Meanwhile, things with Chris and ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran could be back on, as the Las Vegas Sun reports she was spotted at his birthday party in Las Vegas at The Mirage’s 1Oak nightclub on Saturday. Additionally, Us magazine reports that Tran was on hand for Brown’s Hollywood birthday party the prior evening at Emerson Theatre.

Chris Brown checked in with his Twitter followers (@chrisbrown) earlier tonight, posting photos from the set of his new music video ‘Next 2 You’, which features Justin Bieber. The apocalyptic scenes from the pictures were ironic given Harold Camping’s campaign to warn Christians that the rapture is coming in mere hours from now. Breezy also talked about the Canadian pop star getting behind the wheel of his Lamborghini. Brown writes:
Bieber just drove my lambo!!! I was in it praying! Lol!
Judgement day!! Lol
Keli Goff appeared on ‘The Dylan Ratigan Show’ on Monday (March 28) to sound off on Chris Brown’s “non-apology apology” following his ‘Good Morning America’ meltdown. “He has become the poster child for the ‘I’m sorry but not really’ era,” Goff said. “You see, Chris Brown has elevated the non-apology to an art form. At various times, he’s expressed regret for what happened or what transpired. But many of us are still waiting for him to say on the record, ‘I’m sorry that I beat up a woman, really sorry. It never should have happened. There are no excuses.’ But in the age of the non-apology apology, that’s unlikely to happen.” Watch the comments via MSN below.
Keyshia Cole checked in with her Twitter followers (@keyshiacole) last Monday, advising them to go buy Chris Brown’s new album ‘F.A.M.E.’ The 29-year-old writes:

Chris Brown appeared on ‘106 & Park’ in New York City, opening up about what happened in Tuesday’s incident after appearing on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ and talked about Freestyle Friday.
“First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really looked and [was] disappointed at my actions, because I’m disappointed in the way I acted … Yes, I got very emotional. And I apologize for acting like that,” the 21-year-old said. “A lot of people don’t know what went down, and obviously when I do shows or when I do interviews, we always send out a talking point sheet … As the interview proceeded, it was kinda thrown off. I was thrown off by it. I felt like they told us this just so they could get us on the show so they can exploit me … So I took it very, very hard and I really kinda kept my composure throughout the whole interview, although you can see me upset, I kept my composure, I did my performances, and when I got back, I just let off, like, steam in the back. I didn’t physically hurt anyone, I didn’t try to hurt anyone, I just wanted to release the anger that I had inside me because I felt that I worked so hard for this music and … I felt like people kept just trying to take it away from me. So yes, I got very emotional, and I wanna apologize for acting like that.”

Chris Brown sat down and talks to Ryan Cameron and Rashan Ali on V-103 in Atlanta earlier this month. The R&B singer talked about his hopes for the ‘Fortune’ edition of ‘F.A.M.E.’ getting released, the acronyms behind the album title, what a fan can expect attending his listening party, his spur of the moment decision to dye his hair, the live video stream interest Chris brought the station, how music needs to come back, needing an impulse control on Twitter, and more.
“People gotta realize, Twitter is our friend and enemy at the same time because artists, we are normal, we’re regularly normal,” Breezy said about some of the trouble he’s gotten himself in on the micro blogging service, such as the online beef with Raz B. “But people that are fans of us that look up to us don’t realize that when they see us talking… They look up to us as a different kind of role model or whatever the case, and I totally understand that, but I’m trying to work on that, so I don’t be wildin’ out on Twitter.”
