He's revealing a lot these days!
Does that mean he's finally accepted his behavior was out of control in the past, and is looking forwards towards a new and changed future???
Chris Brown recently stopped by Hot 97 to appear on the Ebro In The Morning radio show where he talked extensively about someone whose name has dominated his life for the past number of years…
And it seems like Chris Brown has thought A LOT about what happened in the past!
The singer at first talked about how he was feeling after his infamous arrest for assaulting his former girlfriend, and how his relationship is nowadays with Rihanna.
He also revealed how he's A LOT different now that he's 25 years old instead of 17 or 18.
Here's what he said in the interview published this past Friday:
"Honestly, I just kinda listened to the wrong—'OK, we need to to do this' PR strategy—I really just wanted to be like, man, f–k y'all, and that's how I feel, because it's my personal life. I'm going through a troubled time right now. I feel like through the years, I've said [I f–ked up] enough now to where it's like, bro if you're still on that then I feel sorry for y'all, because it's over with. I don't have animosity about it. Obviously I have remorse about it and it's something that's really serious, but as far as the situation—like me and her, we made amends, we good. She's my friend. So at the end of the day, I knew that was a mistake I would never make again, but I take into consideration like, dang, I was like 17-18—I'm 25 now—so I look back at it now like, dang, and I'm still doing community service and seeing the judge every month and a half over that situation. It's something that, in your personal life, you definitely wanna keep those skeletons in your closet but because I'm an artist like me, you gotta be public about it. Everybody has their own demons and their own skeletons, but it's only how they handle it after when it's showcased. Some people have great political speeches, I can't do that. I can talk about it like this. I can give you a great song."
But that wasn't all Chris Brown talked about!
He revealed why him and Rihanna tried to ignite their faltering romance afterwards, and a large part of that decision was due to Chris wanting to prove to Rihanna that "I could be the man she wanted me to be."
And it was actually her interview with Oprah that made him realize he still had feelings for her. Brown said:
"She's showing me she cares because I didn't know for a while…I was actually moved by it."
He also mentioned why he thinks RiRi decided to date Drake, and how he's been able to stop being angry about all that, and actually squash the beef he felt back in the day with Drake.
Here's what he said:
"I'm content with who I am, so whoever decides to move on or do their thing, that's cool. You gotta consider that was in the thug Chris Brown era when I was…that was when I was all up on runnin' up on dudes. In a way I do…It's understandable. It's the game, we young…we do that at that age. I think once we hit our 30s, we're in a mature stage of life and we're not focusing on that."
Chris Brown and Drake were able to move past that infamous nightclub brawl of theirs which Brown described as a "stick yo' chest out contest. That's all it was. That was a, 'who got the biggest account in the room?'"
But it is when Drake and his camp reached out to Brown that the two rappers decided to end their hate for one another. Here's what Brown said what his thoughts were at the time:
"Let's break this whole beef thing and make light of the situation because it shows growth and maturity."
It absolutely does, and we're glad Brown finally sees it that way!

Obviously Chris Brown has done a lot of growing up these past few years, and while he may not still be perfect - it seems at least like he's attempting to put his best step forward nowadays.
And that's all you can really ask of the guy at this point!!!
