I imagine being romantically attached to somebody who acted like an asshole so repeatedly and publicly might be rather bizarre. According to Karrueche Tran in her interview for Rolling Out, it was definitely that, to say the least. Her highly-publicized relationship with Chris Brown definitely boosted her career, but was that even a good thing considering the press it brought? Now however, simply Karrueche Tran pictures are hitting the Internet after she posed nude for the cover of Rolling Out.

After Tran infamously dated the ever-charming Brown, the asshole douchebag guy made a somewhat hilarious, slightly unsettling video whining about how much he loves both Tran and Rihanna. Considering she was criticized by both fans of Rihanna who didn’t understand why Tran would date an abusive jerk or fans of Rihanna who wished to see their idol back together with Brown, I’d say Karrueche Tran likely got a fair amount of angry people e-yelling at her. In her interview for Rolling Out, Tran admits that the amount of attention this brought her was both stressful and surprising:

“It was very hard. I try my best to just ignore the negativity. Which is hard for me because it’s a lot to deal with. But I try to keep a positive mind and stay strong and not put energy into it… The most challenging part about the attention was the negativity and the misconception from some people. People only see you in blogs and they think they know everything about your life. There are things that go public and everything that comes out is not the truth.”

Well, to be honest, apart from her being really pretty, dating Chris Brown and having a name I still don’t really know how to pronounce, I admittedly know very little about Karrueche Tran. Apparently, she is coming out with a clothing line named The-Kill sometime in the latter part of 2013. I tend to not pay attention to clothing lines made by most famous people — not because I feel some sort of elitism regarding the fashion industry or who belongs in it, I just usually find celebrity lines terrible and so does everybody else — but I suppose Tran’s line will wind up getting some publicity at some point, so it’s worth mentioning it now. Oh, and that it’s apparently being done with Chris Brown, referring to it as “our vision”, which seems odd and makes this all that much more sad. And frankly, it seems she’s overestimating how inspiring and admirable she is.

I hope people can learn from my story. I want to be remembered as someone who remained positive through such a negative situation. Regardless of what you’re put through or what is going on in your life, keep a positive spirit. That will help you get through it.

Well, you sort of dated a guy who beat the shit out of a singer, were criticized, then you broke up, and now you’re working with him still and are on a magazine cover. And his other ex-girlfriend showed up at your nude cover celebratory party. Forgive me if I save my weeping for a more inspirational story, like this dog and baby forming a rock band.
