On the heels of his sixth studio release, X, Chris Brown sat down with Extra’s Mario Lopez to talk about the new album. He also talked to the host about life after his jail stint, including the reception of his platinum “Loyal” single and personal lessons learned.
“[It was] a humbling experience. It was definitely one of the things I’ll never forget,” Brown told Lopez. “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.”

Breezy also opened up to Lopez regarding his much-talked-about post-jail weight gain. Sharing that he was 35 pounds heavier than his normal size, he described being embarrassed, and how he slimmed back down.
“My normal weight is like 180. 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.”
