He once refused to talk about his infamous 2009 assault on his on and off again girlfriend Rihanna. But as Chris Brown desperately tries to win back the public, he continues to be upfront and frank about the incident which subsequently shattered his reputation.
The singer once again opened up about the vicious attack with Matt Lauer on the Today show on Monday morning.
In an interview to promote his new album Fine China, the 23-year-old said that his 52 week stint in domestic violence counselling finally made him see the error of his ways.
‘I think it is just proving myself once again and me being a man. Knowing what I did was wrong and never doing it again,’ he told Lauer.
‘As far as she (Rihanna) and I are concerned, she knows my heart and I know her heart. I am not really focused on the negative, everything is positive for me. I did my 52 weeks of couselling and learned it was absolutely wrong.’
Chris said that during counselling he played the incident in his head over and over again.
‘It was domestic violence counselling. A 52 week program. Every Monday in Virginia, I remember going, sitting in there thinking “why did I do what I did?” I really just wanted to get help,’ he told Lauer.
When Lauer asked Brown if he could promise that it won’t ever happen again, the With You star repeatedly told him ‘absolutely’.
Brown also told Lauer that he was now concentrating on moving forward ‘positively’, but realised that not everybody will be willing to forgive him.
‘I am moving forward, positively. I think for me it is about proving myself to my fans and for me my fans have been my number one support,’ he said.
‘The naysayers are going to have their opinion. Anything I do… It’s not going to be “Chris is the greatest”. So I am not going to focus my life on pleasing those people. The only thing I can do is please my family, myself and please her (Rihanna) and my fans.’
