Chris Brown Talks Charity Work, Acting & Much More in Prestige Magazine

Chris Brown is looking very fashion forward on the cover of Prestige Magazine Hong Kong, an Asia-based fashion and lifestyle magazine.

What’s even more interesting is that this serves as the singer and actor’s first real interview in 2012, since announcing that he wouldn’t partake in any earlier this year.

During the interview, he speaks about his career, charity work, his future plans outside of the music world and much more.

I think it’s safe to say that the singer looks a little… bad, don’t you think? Maybe it’s the photoshop gone wrong, but he’s looking slightly thinner than usual and his face (around his jaw line) seems to be sunken in.

I really hope that nothing major is going on, but if it is, can you blame him? I mean the media won’t shut up about something that happened three years ago, even though Rihanna (the person who should be mad because it happened to her) forgave him and remains “friends” with him.

Take a look at the pics and share your thoughts below.

On what he wants the world to know about who you are and what you stand for:

“As a 23-year-old young entertainer, I want the world to see my art and hopefully be inspired by it, promote positivity with what I do now – with painting, with fashion, with directing, with creativity as far as videos and cinema. I want to have people admire that and hopefully have people follow in my footsteps.”

On acting:

“Acting is just something that comes natural. I used to look in the mirror all the time, make funny faces, trying get my face right. Looking at Jim Carey, looking at a lot of different movies. The key is that you pick up what you see all the time. That’s kind of where I got my Michael Jackson inspiration, my charisma. I did a couple of acting lessons, but when it comes down to it, I learned more from the actors on set, their energy and timing.”

On charity work:

“I’ve been involved with [those] since I was 15, 16. It’s not about recognition, because that’s not what satisfies me. The satisfaction is people that are getting helped or are benefiting from whatever I donate, whatever I contribute to their lives. I don’t like it to be publicized  If there are cameras around, it’s cool. But I do it from the heart. When I go on TV and do my videos, that’s the artist Chris Brown. But when I go and do [charity work] it’s just me – it’s just Christopher.”
