Following the hate campaign that's been haunting him since beating girlfriend Rihanna to a pulp in 2009, Chris Brown is continuing his puppy dog pout with the press in an effort to get you to forgive him.
Whether it’ll work out in the long run remains to be seen.
Today’s installment came, appropriately, on NBC's “Today,” where the artist sat down for a chat with Matt Lauer to promote his new song “Fine China” from his forthcoming album, X.
Surprisingly, it went a whole lot better than his other morning talk show appearance on “Good Morning America,” which ended with him throwing a chair at a dressing room window.
Per usual, the topic of Rihanna, whom the R&B artist recently got back together with, came up and Breezy expressed that, in retrospect, he has “been humbled by the whole experience.”
“From me losing everything, you know, to me having to regain public opinion or whatever it is” he began. “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.”
Being the snappy reporter that he is, Lauer was quick to point out—even mentioning Brown’s recent headline-grabbing fights with Drake and Frank Ocean—what is probably the general consensus right now…has he really changed?
“I think everybody is entitled to their opinion,” the singer said. “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.”
Brown also made sure to mention that he and Rihanna were still, definitely, a couple.
