Chris Brown has been receiving mixed reactions from fans after his appearance on The Today Show this morning with journalist, Matt Lauer. Chris opened up about his past mistakes (of course, the interview wouldn’t be complete without questions regarding the 2009 assault involving his on/off love, Rihanna), being a changed man, his new album, X, and where his relationship with Rih Rih stands now…
On what he’s learned from his past mistakes:
I think it’s just me proving myself once again, and also me just being a man, and knowing what I did wrong and never doing it again. As far as me and her are concerned, she knows my heart and I know her heart. I’m not really focused on the negative, everything about it is positive for me. I did my 52 weeks of counseling and learned it was absolutely wrong.
On the public’s opinion of him:
I think everybody is entitled to their opinion. For me, it’s just a learning process. You know, I have to just take it one day at a time. I can’t make everybody like me … it’s about me being positive, and everything I do in my music is to inspire the world.
Chris also confirmed that he and Rihanna are still together despite a recent interview, and reports claiming the two had broken up…
We’re fine, they got it wrong. [It was] an old interview from a year prior. Yeah, everything’s good, we’re fine.
