Chris Brown may don Islamic terrorist Halloween costumes, but he says he's trying to be a better person since assaulting then-GF Rihanna in February 2009.
Interviewed for MTV's This Is How I Made It, the 23-year-old singer opens up about why he no longer feels the need to apologize for his behavior.
"Having to get personal opinion back and having to gain 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, you know?"
"I'm good with knowing everything isn't always going to be perfect."
The singer insists his true fans - Team Breezy - have been loyal.
"The fan base that I have and their support is unreal to me. They've put me in a position to be able to continue to do music and help my family, help my mom," Chris says.
"I just want my fans to be able to identify, whether it be the ones that maybe could've had everything or they maybe blew their chance and they failed and didn't know how to get back up."
So far, the singer has complied with the terms of his plea bargain, which included community labor, five years of probation and domestic violence counseling.
He's a busy man, in other words. But one you should never count out.
The Grammy-winner adds, "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."
