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?
