Chris Brown Says He's Trying To Become A Better Person

Cue the controversial comments!

Chris Brown recently sat down with MTV to have a heart-to-heartcamera conversation with the public.

During his This Is How I Made It special, Breezy insists he's doing all that he can to improve his character and become a better person following the brutal beating of Rihanna and the various negative situations he's found himself in ever since.

Opening up, he says:

"Having to get personal opinion back and having to gain personal success back… it's not all the way back, you know? But it's one of my most humbling experiences. I can't hate people for making judgment on me or making a decision of liking me or not liking me. All I can do is try to be better as a person, and I'm good with knowing everything isn't always going to be perfect."

"The fan base that I have and the actual support is unreal to me. They've put me in a position to be able to help people and continue to do music and help my family, help my mom. I just want my fans to be able to identify, whether it be the ones that maybe could of had everything or they maybe blew their chance and they failed and didn't know how to get back up."

"My story or my life or my legacy can hopefully show them that once you're down, that don't just mean you're down forever. You never let up. A lot of the negatives that we always go through, we're gonna have to get through that. It sounds crazy, but that's what makes us who we are."

Sigh. Okay, look — even though WE would never dream of resorting to violence, especially with a loved one, we still know a thing or two about negative-to-positive transformations. And we know it's possible.

But still, as much as we're fond of his intentions, we think he needs to try harder:

1. When are we going to see him spend some time at a women's shelter? That would help a lot.

2. When is he going to stop being such a playboy, especially since he's back to playing around with our girl Rih?

3. When is he going to go out into the world and show his change by BEING the change?

We agree with him that things will never be perfect, because they're never going to be for anyone. But we still think he could match his actions with his words better (like don't dress up as a terrorist for Halloween if you want to up your positivity).

And we say that because we DO want to see this happen!

But still, if you want to watch him speak his mind, then tune into MTV this Saturday, November 3 at 12pm!

    This reminds me of what Paris Hilton said to Larry King when she got out of jail. She was going to be a better person, she wanted to help people, blah, blah, blah.

    Maybe he is genuine, but the proof will be in his actions.

    Why do we stand in judgment leave Chris Brown alone, same stuff y'all did to Britney Spears.If you focus on a persons every move you'll keep finding stuff you don't approve.But who and what have you done for him he is still a young man.

    I spend hours and hours every day of my life reading about the psychology of abusers and abused women. Abuse has little to do with the way abusers feel, and everything to do with the way they think. It's rare for abusive men to change. Most of the time, after being convicted and being through an abuser's program, they become more manipulative and learn more strategies to hide their abuse.

    If an abuser goes into program to learn, usually only about 1 in 10 abusers make lasting changes, and even those men are only less abusive, they haven't entirely stopped being violent to women.

    If Chris Brown gets back together with Rihanna, chances are, he will hit he again. Usually when men abuse women, they try to inflict injuries in places where other people can't see, like on a woman's arms, left and right side, chest, or legs. That Chris punched her in the face several times says a lot about him. He is an extremely violent and dangerous individual.

    He'll never be a better person because he never started with a conscious. Trash very rarely changes into flowers.

    IF he was a good person, he just would BE a good person. He's not. He can't "try" enough. Won't happen.

    People are ridiculously harsh on this poor guys, he can never catch a break. We get it what he did was inexcusable and wrong, and no one is denying that not his fans or Chris. BUT… everything he does gets scrutinised, he says he's "trying to be a better person" he gets bagged for trying if he says "I AM a better person" hed get even more bagged and if he doesn't try or change at all the poor guy gets bagged….so lets hold off on the hate for a second. And as for point number 1. if people focused on the good publicity not just the bad you'd realise that Chris HAS actually volunteered at Jenesse Domestic violence Shelter on numerous occasions he just doesn't get the credit and whoo harrr about it all as for point no. 2 i agree with you! and point 3 he IS being the change he is launching his own charity organisation Symphonic Love which has gotten Chris and his fan base volunteering and donating to the community all over the world.

    When was he trying to become a better person? When he became violent during GMA and vandalized the place? When he dressed as a terrorist with guns and tweeted, No one messes with his clique? Let's not forget that the Taliban is also anti women. How about when he cheated on his gf with the girl he savagely beat and threatened? I see he's working very hard at trying to convince people he's changed instead of actually changing.

    We need to take a look at ourselves, and leave the young man alone. Chris still has time to become a man. We spend so much time worrying about celebrities and what they are doing.. Chris who? lets move on people let it go already. We keep Chris Brown relevant by talking about him so much.

    So.. breaking up with your girlfriend publicly and that is the way she finds out and cheating on her….just saying….

    Character's built when things go wrong, not when they hum along. The guy's just 23. I believe he means it. Big giving back usually comes at a later age when career becomes same old and you look around do to more and can really afford to be the change.



  17. 17

    good luck with that douche



  18. 18

    Was this before or after he dressed up as a terrorist for Halloween?

    he DOES volunteer at a woman's shelter…are you kidding with this? He volunteers at the Jenesse Domestic VIolence shelter which YOU YOURSELF reported on…god Perez, I hate you. I guarantee poeple hate you more than they do him.



  20. 20

    at least he's doing charity work and launched a program for disabled kids to be inspired by art and music



  21. 21

    You already reported that he DID volunteer at a domestic violence centre in LA

    The funniest part of this "article" , is that tou actually think you've gome through a transformation to something positive, when all you've done is buckle to the pressure of Hollywood to be thin. Inside you are the same vile creature you always were, don't kid yourself Perez, nobody else is fooled.

    What a jackass! Shove him behind the scenes again ! I am sick of looking at his geeked-out face - I can't believe RiRi would even associate with him and Tran!

    Re: Jesusloves799 – Life is too short and precious to condone and celerate beaters and criminals.

    Some of ya'll people on here need to have several seats, His halloween costume was just that. A goddamn costume. Chris Brown isn't going to do anything asthetically pleasing to people who verbally maim him. Trust me whatever it is he's doing, apparently he's doing it well, because Ri-Ri likes it. and Our Bajan babydoll is certaiinly aware of what she signed up for when she accepted him back into her life.So for glasshouse-living tweeps, FbTards, can find yourselves something else to do.

    And this somehow qualifies you as a DA expert..A psychological profiler.. because you can read a fucking book and quote fcts about domestic abusers. As. stated before there is no guarantee, that what happened to them will happen again. Statistics have been wrong..

    Chris Brown is still a good person but domestics can go in various directions depending on the details.
