Soulja Boy opens up about his pals Chris Brown and Rihanna

Souljaboy_lFormer Chris Brown tour-mate Soulja Boy weighed in on the alleged Rihanna incident on the red carpet at last Saturday’s 2009 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles. Here’s what he told EW: "[Chris] needs to be focused on fixing himself right now and fixing therelationship. I don’t know what went wrong or what happenedexactly, but I couldn’t be more shocked. Both of them are my friendsand I wish both of them the best of luck. They were really goodtogether and it is sad that it happened. It came out of nowhere. Iwould have never seen that coming. It is not like him at all. Not hisnature. I hope they both get through it in a positive light. It isgoing to be tough because they are going through it all publicly.Remember that only God can judge though. None of us know exactly whatwent down that weekend. Only they know the whole truth and it will beup to them to decide if they can get straight with it and whether theywill want to continue as a couple. I can just be there if either ofthem need me."

In addition to boasting about his sparkly $100,000 necklace and professing a desire to collaborate with Kanye West, the loquacious rapper also revealed the inspiration behind his new hit single, "Kiss Me Thru the Phone," which is riding high at No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. "It is based on my personal experience," he says. "When I was recording, I had a girl I wanted to see real bad but I couldn’t, so I told someone else how I have to be all right with kissing her through the phone for a few months and that was how it all came about." Next up for the young MC? A summer tour. "I’m the headliner and I am going to put my swagga into it. Move over, Chris Brown." (Additional reporting by Carrie Bell)

    Who is this person and why would anyone care about his opinion about anything?

    Yeah, Soulja Boy, no one knows what happened, Rhianna just got her face smashed-in by an unknown assailant. Soulja Boy, shut your trap.

    Look yall no matter how hard you wanna pop a vein over what soulja does it dont matter because hes young and rich he reads these message boards and laughs at the fact that you guys are stupid enough to take every word he says out of context if you hate him so much stop talkin about him yall are just keepin his name relevant If you google soulja boy you get 15,000,000 results for forums, message boards news sites and internet gangsters everywhere saying soulja boy killed hip-hop. Thats where you are wrong soulja boy didnt kill hip-hop yall are killing hip hop thinking hip hop is dead

    Sounds like she needs to be put in her place again. She obviously didn’t learn the first time. Christ Brown is a man among boys in hollywood. He finally got the balls to do what all of America has wanted to do to Rihanna for a long time. Maybe if Paris Hilton had a boyfriend like that, she wouldn’t have ended up in rehab so many times. Sometimes you need a swift kick in the pants (or punch in the face) to realize that you’re a self absorbed sadistic whore. I hope he goes on the Oprah show and punches Oprah in the face too. One punch for every kid that got molested at her “future for little black girls” school in Africa.
