Wow, that’s quite a mishap! Chris Brown wants forgiveness….
The singer, 21, is frank with Page Six Magazine (in Thursday’s New York Post) about the ongoing fallout from his February 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna.
“People are always gonna talk. But I’m in a positive place. I consider myself a grown-ass man,” says the star, whose new album F.A.M.E. stands for “Forgiving All My Enemies.”
Speaking of forgiveness, Brown says he’s done apologizing for the brutal Rihanna attack. “At the end of the day,” muses the “Forever” singer, “if I walk around apologizing to everybody, I’m gonna look like a damn fool.”
Brown is completing five years probation, domestic violence classes and 180 hours hard labor as a result of the attack.
While friends like Pitbull and Pharrell Williams stuck by him, he claims many people “turn[ed] away. They don’t want to get involved with it because they don’t want their name attached to anything negative. Unknowingly, they kind of show their true colors when they do that.”
He says he doesn’t really blame them for turning their back.
“You can’t blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don’t want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap.”
“The last two years, everybody dissed me,” Brown says. “But my fans were so dedicated. The way I look at it is, you can’t walk around mad, because then you just prove everybody right that you’re an angry person.”
I can’t stand this kid. If he would have just hit her once – then I might be able to get over it. But I’m sure you all saw the pictures of what he did to her. He’s lucky he didn’t kill her. I hope his career never bounces back!
