Chris Brown was born in 1989, which means he can't even buy beer, and he even looks closer to like 11. But man, this R&B singer can...

You may want to sit down and re-examine everything you thought you knew about life: here comes a Chris Brown story in which he actually seems rational, self-aware, and - dare we say it? - sane!

Chris Brown is Shocked

Yes, apparently even Young Breezy has to grow up some time, and the world may have to get used to the idea of a kinder, gentler Chris Brown.

Last week, Chris gave advice to Ray Rice (Sadly, they didn't go on to form a musical duo known as Brown-Rice.).

This week, he's taking his newfound maturity a step further and actually admitting that he's a violent d-bag with no one to blame for his problems but himself.

"Instead of going haywire, I felt like I needed to be more of a role model," Chris said in a recent interview. "I want to be known for legendary music and being one of the best dancers and stuff like that."

Chris Brown and Rihanna may no longer be together romantically, but they are still bonded closely ... at least according to the necklace he's sporting.

The singer has been all over New York and Los Angeles this week promoting his new album X, performing on the Tonight Show and hitting all the stops.

While making the media rounds, he's been sporting an necklace with an angel on it.

One that perhaps not surprisingly looks exactly like Rihanna's signature accessory.

Asked by TMZ, which of course noticed this similarly, he clammed up fast.

People close to Chris deny that the thing is linked to Rihanna, so either:

Ariana Grande and Chris Brown play star-crossed lovers in medieval times in their official music video for their long-awaited duet, "Don't Be Gone Too Long."

Months after teasing the song, which was derailed (like his career in general) by Brown's legal problems, the throbbing, electro-dance track is finally here.

Is it any good? Is she foolish for working with this guy? We'll let you decide that.

The two singers play characters who are smitten with one another, yet forbidden to act as such, in the video. Grande is a princess, controlled by an evil king.

Chris appears to be her commoner/peasant boyfriend of sorts. Not the evil king.

The medieval footage is juxtaposed with modern-day dance clips of the stars.

At one point, Ariana Grande (in full ballerina costume) does a split, walks on the tips of her toes and gets super close with Chris, lifting her leg onto his shoulder.

Avert your eyes, Big Sean. Avert your eyes.

If there's anyone who can relate to the Ray Rice scandal, it's Chris Brown.

The former Baltimore Ravens running back and the combustible R&B singer are two of the most high-profile domestic abuse perpetrators around.

This was clear last night when CBS nixed Rihanna from performing during its big Thursday Night Football pregame show in order to cover the Rice scandal.

A video leaked showing Ray knocking out Janay Palmer, his fiancee at the time and currently his wife, learning to his indefinite suspension from the NFL.

In the days since the footage leaked, debate has reached a fever pitch and the National Domestic Violence Hotline has seen an 84 percent increase in volume.

Women (and one ill-advised DiGiorno Tweet) have been weighing in around the clock with stories using the Twitter hashtags #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft.

So what does Brown, who was convicted of felony assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, and whose image never fully recovered, think about Rice?

While CBS nixed Rihanna from Thursday Night Football due to her tangential link to domestic violence, her famous attacker performed live on NBC.

The 25-year-old R&B singer dropped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to perform a couple of tracks from his forthcoming album X. Take a look:

Chris performed the title track “X” and his summer hit, “Loyal,” on the show in typical Breezy fashion, showing off his vocal stylings and sick dance moves.

He also dressed in red from top to bottom, symbolic of Chris Brown's Bloods gang ties, which may or may not have almost gotten him killed recently.

The singer sported a backwards hat, sneakers, red Hammer pants, a matching hoodie, sunglasses and a gold chain as he brought the house down.

You almost forget sometimes, given his off-stage shenanigans, how talented this guy is and how he's let that become secondary to his train wreck life.

CBS made a last-minute decision to drop Rihanna from performing during last night’s Ravens-Steelers NFL pregame show, leading fans to note the obvious irony.

Instead of a performance featuring the singer, the network instead aired commentary about Ray Rice, the disgraced former Baltimore running back.

  • Rihanna Waving
  • Ray Rice Pic

The video of Rice knocking out Janay Palmer which surfaced this week led to his release and indefinite suspension, while embroiling the NFL in controversy.

Rihanna, of course, can feel Palmer's pain, and like Rice's now-wife, famously took back her abuser romantically even after he pummeled her brutally.

She and Chris Brown have broken up a second time, but it's impossible not to note the parallels, and the incongruence of Rihanna getting nixed by CBS.

The league is facing major backlash for failing to take harsher action against Ray, initially suspending him for just two games before this video leaked.

Some have speculated that they saw this video prior to this week, or that the powers that be didn't try too hard to track it down. Either way, the NFL looks terrible.

When Chris Brown was released from jail back in June, he swore to friends and family that he would stay out of trouble.

Just three months later, Breezy is having serious trouble keeping that promise.

Chris Brown, Gang

Brown was on hand for the Suge Knight shooting last month, and he may still be under investigation for possible involvement. Prior to that, Brown was spotted throwing gang signs before passing out drunk after the BET Awards.

Breezy proved that he's a magnet for violence and criminal activity again last night when a brawl erupted following his performance at an NYC nightclub.

Police arrived on the scene around 3:20 am on Thursday morning, following reports that patrons were throwing bottles at one another inside the Manhattan hot spot.

It's sort of official: there's serious bad blood brewing between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

It all started when Swift told Rolling Stone that she penned a song on hew new album about an enemy in the world of music, someone who did “something so horrible” when she tried to “sabotage an entire arena tour."

Then, not long after these comments went public, Perry Tweeted a reference to Mean Girls and a "Regina George in sheep's clothing," who we're rather positive is Taylor Swift.

So the claws are pretty much out between two of the top-selling artists in pop music history.

Will things get uglier from here? Who will fire the next shot? And where does this feud rank among recent famous rivalries, which include Drake Bell HATING on Justin Bieber and Jimmy Kimmel trading barbs with Kanye West?

Flip around and decide now:

Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift wrote a song titled "Bad Blood" about an enemy in the music business. We're pretty sure the subject was Katy Perry.

These hoes may not be loyal, but Saturday Night Live and Dancing With The Stars are sticking by Chris Brown, who will reportedly perform on both shows this fall.

T H U G

The singer's sixth studio album X is set for a September 16 release, and Brown is already lining up a full promotional schedule to push the crap out of the thing.

“In support and promotion for X, Chris will be doing the typical promotional slate to get the word out that the album is coming," says an insider.

"That will include appearances and performances on both SNL and DWTS."

“Everyone is very excited for this to happen and Chris really wants to make all of his appearances very memorable. Should be a very fun time.”

Whether that's true remains to be seen, but at least he's focused on music.

Chris Brown, covering Billboard magazine's latest issue, admits that "maybe I was out of control." This was prior to Suge Knight getting shot at his party.

How prescient the cover would become, and Brown spoke to the magazine about the shooting, which some believe was an assassination attempt on Chris:

Chris Brown Billboard Cover

"I realize that what I do for a living opens my life to public scrutiny and that I have a responsibility to everyone because of that exposure," Brown tells Billboard.

"I can say that I am only human and I have made mistakes. I can say that I try to live my life in the most true, honest way that I can. I am not perfect, no one is."

"No one is harder on me than me. No one can please everyone.

"No one can live in the past and expect to grow. I have been moving forward and hope that I am not defined by just a few moments but all of the moments that will make up my life."

The sad part for Chris is that while that sure sounds nice, more and more of the moments that make up his life have been controversial, sometimes even violent.
