Chris Brown is gracing the cover of Prestige Hong Kong's November issue, and for the fashion shoot the 23-year-old singer wears Lanvin, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and other select European designers. In his interview, Brown discusses what he enjoys about regular day-to-day activities, his childhood inspirations, and why he still feels like a small-town guy.
"I'm still country. Sometimes when I talk the twang will come out. But I feel humbled by my upbringing," he says. "I still live in Virginia. I have a house there. I go back and forth. Most of my family is based out of there. And I always go back to get my aunt's cooking. That's a must."
Brown also described what he enjoyed most about his downtime saying, "Honestly, my day-to-day life is the most fun right now because I get a chance to not focus on 'the artist' Chris Brown. Going through the regular things, like going to the grocery store."
As for his childhood inspirations, Brown lists off the artists that influenced him when he was aspiring to enter the entertainment business himself, some of which won't come as a surprise at all.
"Back in the day, what inspired me as a teenager growing up was Fred Astaire, James Brown, Michael Jackson. Not their personal life or what they do when they go home, but the movies they made that took you to a land they made up when you saw them. Gene Kelly, too."
