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:
"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.
