Chris Brown wants to assure fans (and haters) that he's not the monster that people have portrayed him out to be.
Chris obviously got a lot of heat after he allegedly assaulted girlfriend Rihanna back in February. Fans burned his albums, radio stations banned his songs, and Rihanna fans protested outside the courtroom during his trial.
He's stayed relatively low-key for the most part during the whole ordeal, but he's back in the studio now and wants to reconnect with his "real" fans.
In a video post on YouTube.com, Brown says, "I just wanna say what up 'cause I ain't (sic) been out there, but a new album's gonna be coming soon, called Graffiti.
"I'm about to drop a single this summer for y'all, we ain't (sic) going nowhere.
"Everybody that's been haters, they always been haters. All my real fans, I love y'all, I ain't (sic) a monster."
