Chris Brown is not only in pictures with Rihanna nowadays -- he is also on the cover of the upcoming issue of XXL magazine, and he discusses love, music, his brawl with Drake and more in an interview with the publication. 

Brown is shown on the magazine's cover with the caption, "No More Apologies,” as he wears a gold grill, a diamond earring, a nose piercing, a gold bracelet and a large gold ring.

“In the beginning, I used to be hot. I’m normal. I’m human, so if anybody says something that’s a lie, I’m numb to it. I’ve smartened up,” Brown said in regard to his critics.

He also avoided making any negative remarks when asked about his brawl back in February with Drake that was allegedly over Rihanna.

“A lot of people wanna know about the whole situation with me, Drake and Meek Mill. At the end of the day, I’m me, they’re them. They rap, I sing. Totally different caliber. I rap, I play around on mixtapes. But our words don’t collide as much as you’d think.”

The singer, who is rumored to be back with ex-girlfriend Rihanna, also talked about love, saying, “One thing people often want me to talk about is my public love life. When it comes to my love life, the perception seems as though I am a player. But that’s not true.

Love is something I am still learning. It’s just an obstacle that I haven’t yet mastered. I think that’s my biggest hurdle in life.” He went on to say that his artwork is his “outlet to get through the confusion” as he tries to “promote positivity and love.”

Meanwhile, Rihanna’s "Unapologetic" album debuted at number one for the first time in her career, and her current hit single is "Diamonds."

She celebrated her success by tweeting a photo of her brand new Rolex, and Chris Brown also posted a picture of himself on Instagram with a matching men's version of the expensive watch.

Chris Brown recently admitted that Rihanna is to blame for his break-up with ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran. He released a video in which he shared his feelings about the realities of love -- and asked if it is possible to be in love with two women at once.

"Is there such thing as loving two people? I don’t know if that’s possible, but for me, I feel like that,” Brown admits in a video titled “The Real Chris Brown.”
