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!
