The more we followed the Chrihanna scandal, post the beating in 2009, the more it became crystal clear that these two were destined to get back together…if they ever broke up in the first place. I mean, who lets their ex hop on a track talking about oral?! Then there was the Oprah interview. And after that, the ridiculous documentary of Chris detailing his love for two women. We all knew what was up. And we were right. Though we saw it coming, we certainly weren’t privy to how it all went down…until now.
In a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on KIIS-FM, Chris Brown opened up about winning Rihanna back.
“I just tried my best to be the best man I could be over the years and just show her how remorseful and sorry I was for the incident and the time was probably the worst part of my life. Being that she has [forgiven me] and she’s a wonderful person, I’m eternally grateful and thankful.”
“People are entitled to their opinions. I can’t go around blaming. Being at that young age, I can tell you I was arrogant and definitely hotheaded.”
Though it would seem Chris has calmed down some, his Twitter beefs and altercation with Frank Ocean would make it seem that he still has more work to do. But Chris claims he’s in a much better place.
“I’m cool. I’m happy. I’m focused. I’m a lot calmer. Everyone has anger issues and days they don’t feel like being bothered. Sometimes it comes off the wrong way. I’m learning how to deal with it and how to channel that into my music.”
I could shade this 24 year old and ya’ll might call me crazy for saying this–but I’ll be danged if I don’t think he isn’t lying. Perhaps, it’s just me but this is probably the most heartfelt, genuine thing I’ve heard Chris say about the domestic violence incident. For so long, he was on the defensive, sounding angry and reinforcing what we already assumed about him. This is the first time I can recall him owning up to his foolishness. This was a pretty good way to come back to the interview circuit, on the humble. Homeboy still has work to do but I don’t believe he’s totally beyond reform.
What do you think about Chris’ statement? Does it sound sincere to you? Do you think he’s changed?
