Chris Brown: A "Grown-Ass Man," Done Apologizing For Rihanna "Mishap"

by at . Comments

People are always gonna talk. But I'm in a positive place. - Chris Brown

In an interview with the New York Post's Page Six Magazine, the star, whose new album F.A.M.E. stands for "Forgiving All My Enemies," says he has come to grips with his own infamy and that now, "I consider myself a grown-ass man."

He's also done apologizing for Rihanna looking like this: "At the end of the day, if I walk around apologizing to everybody, I'm gonna look like a damn fool."

He;s looking to move on from the Rihanna incident and one scandal after another - i.e. this week's Chris Brown nude pic drama - but it's difficult.

In the wake of the shocking assault, Brown says that "a handful of people stuck by me," including fellow musicians Pitbull and Pharrell Williams.

Still, he laments that many "turn[ed] away. They don't want to get involved because they don't want their name attached to anything negative."

"Unknowingly, they kind of show their true colors when they do that."

Their true colors being ... that they don't condone domestic violence?

On the flip side, he doesn't entirely fault friends for walking away after the assault, for which he has apologized profusely and paid a heavy price:

"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."

"If you do, you just prove everybody right that you're an angry person."

Aside from that whole beef with Raz B, Chris has done a pretty good job. But fully repairing his image after that "mishap" will be very hard.

The fact that he beat up one of the world's most popular singers is tough to get over, and many people don't view his actions as sincere.

Is it fair? Is it completely off base? Should people just drop it? Is a person who commits domestic violence bound to do it again? Discuss.

As a woman I think he has apologized enough its been 2 years and if she has forgiven him then everyone else needs to move on and stop fucking with him as someone else posted its only a big deal because he's in the public eye but half of you fuckers have either got your ass kicked or is getting it kicked regularly and you can't take your hate out on the one that's fucking you up so you continue to hate on him WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES NO ONE IS PERFECT LET IT GOOOOOOOOO!!!

And you're still dumb!
I dance to a lot of music. I hate the Black Eyed Peas, but I still like about two of their songs. I think for the most part they suck, but that doesn't stop me from dancing.
I've never considered myself a 'fan' of Chris Brown, even before this happened. I've never bought one of his CDs or downloaded a song. If a song has a good beat, I'll dance to it. And if I man hits a woman, he's a woman beater for life. Famous or not. Nice music or not. People who abuse children are labeled for life, so that parents may protect their children. And men who beat women should be labeled for life, too. That way women can protect themselves.
And don't give me any bullshit about "WELL, WHAT IF A WOMAN BEATS A MAN?" Fucking please. That's wrong, violence in itself is wrong, but seriously? I've never met a man who was afraid of a woman, or who couldn't protect themselves if a woman tried to slap him around. Christ.

Your all idiots for hating on Chris Brown for making a mistake.
Don't act like you've never done wrong in your whole lifetime, assholes.
Yes he should never have hit her, but he's apologised and you're still going on about it.
Just because he's a celebrity doesn't mean he can't make mistakes.
#TEAMBREEZY all day !

This article is CLEARLY subjective and is written to express the views of the writer as opposed to the true context of the magazine article to which it relates. One should never take a statement out of the context in which it was made and this is what is happening here. From beginning to end this article is designed to portray that Chris Brown does not care about what he did which to date has NOT been the case. I know there are people out there who will want to still hate him for what happened and this is unfortunate but there must come a time when he is allowed to get on with his life absent the nasty comments, ridicule and hate. I think he needs to be careful when he does these interviews since the media which thives on and makes its money from controversy will twist things to get people to buy the magazine, etc. He needs to no longer address the topic in anyway shape or form and talk stricltly about his career and other positive things.

No Chris Brown song is ever going to erase the images of Rihanna's battered face.
