Chris Brown went on the “Today” show Monday and spoke with Matt Lauer about his past and future.
When asked how he has handled himself since the Rihanna filed battery charges against him in 2009, Brown said:
"From me losing everything, you know, to me having to regain public opinion or whatever it is," the singer told Matt Lauer. "But most importantly, you know, knowing that what I did was totally wrong and having to kind of deal with myself and kind of forgive myself in the same breath and being able to apologize to, you know, Rihanna and be that man that can be who is a man. I think everybody is entitled to their opinion. For me, it's just a learning process. You know, I have to just take it one day at a time. I can't make everybody like me ... it's about me being positive," he said. "Everything that I'm doing with my music is to hopefully inspire the world and inspire people who have been on my situation, even everybody who's trying to learn from me."
Brown seemed humble and didn’t bash the public for not liking him or his actions. He also told Lauer that him and Rihanna are doing “fine” after confirming that him and the singer were together again.
Brown said that 52 weeks in domestic violence counseling helped him see that, “knowing that what I did was wrong, and never doing it again. So as far as me and [Rihanna] are concerned, she knows my heart, and I know her heart. So I'm not really focused on the negative."
It looks like Chris Brown might be trying to finally change for the better.
