Chris Brown: What I Did To Rihanna Was “Totally Wrong;” We ARE Together (VIDEO)


By Daniel Gates



Chris Brown appeared on Monday’s “Today Show,” where he talked to Matt Lauer about his upcoming album (see the new “Fine China” video here) and opened up about his 2009 felony assault on Rihanna. Brown explained to Lauer that he’s a changed man, saying he’s “been humbled by the whole experience.”

He said, “From me losing everything, you know, to me having to regain public opinion or whatever it is — 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.”

Lauer challenged Brown, suggesting that people might think his attempted image makeover is being done just to sell records, and pointing out that in recent months Brown has had outbursts with Drake, Frank Ocean, and others. “I think everybody is entitled to their opinion,” said Brown. “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 also cleared up confusion about whether he and Rihanna are currently together — three days after Gossip Cop set the record straight. Check out the video below, and tell us what you think.
