Chris Brown recently sat down with The Guardian and discussed several personal topics including losing his virginity at a young age, beating on ex-girlfriend Rihanna, and his latest community service 'compromise'.

Chris Brown apparently lost his virginity at 8 years old

The 24 year-old made the shocking confession of losing his virginity at the tender age of 8 and even more astounding, he feels there is nothing wrong being sexually active so young.

"It's different in the country", he joked. "By that point, we were already kind of like hot to trot, you know what I'm saying? Like, girls, we weren't afraid to talk to them; I wasn't afraid. So, at eight, being able to do it, it kind of preps you for the long run, so you can be a beast at it. You can be the best at it".

The R&B singer didn't reveal how many women he has slept with in total but he did compare himself to American singer, Prince; "You know how Prince had a lot of girls back in the day? Prince was, like, the guy. I'm just that, today. But most women won't have any complaints if they've been with me. They can't really complain. It's all good."

The confident singer's career took off when he was just 15 after releasing debut album 'Chris Brown' which went double platinum. However in 2009 one 'incident' nearly ruined it all, he got into a physical altercation with fellow singer and girlfriend, Rihanna.

Brown refers to the infamous beating as "probably the biggest wake-up call for me. I had to stop acting like a little teenager, a crazy, wild young guy."

The 'Kiss Kiss' singer did come back strong as he has won a Grammy and released three more successful albums with hits such as 'Beautiful People' from 2011's 'F.A.M.E' and 'Don't Wake Me Up' from 2012's 'Fortune'.

However, Brown constantly finds himself in the middle of legal disputes and this past July a judge revoked his probation as well as handing him 1,000 additional hours community service, for a hit-and-run incident.

The 'Turn Up The Music' singer thought the judge was vindictive in this case as he says, "Community service, that shit is a bitch. I'll be honest - and you can quote me on that - that is a motherfucker there. For me, I think it's more of a power trip for the DA. I can speak freely now, because I don't really care what they say about it, but as far as, like, the 1,000 extra hours they gave me, that's totally fricking bananas."

As far as the future goes, Brown sees himself as a wealthy man, "I don't want to be rich, I want to be wealthy. There's a difference, you know? I'm rich, but I'm not in the $200m mark."

One more thing he wants to achieve is "to sell ground-breaking numbers on an album. Just to be able to have that moment to say, I did it. So as like, I have a stamp. I would really like to mean something to the world, instead of me just being this fungus."

Perhaps his upcoming album will help him reach both goals as 'X' is slated for release on November 19th 2013.
