Chris Brown has endured a rough couple of years. From his infamous domestic altercation with Bajan beauty Rihanna to his stint in rehab, and most recently the 131 days spent in jail. Following what seem to be several misguided choices, Brown is ready to get his life back on track.
Days after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor assault in D.C., the Virginia native received a positive probation hearing. Following the hearing, Brown opened up to Billboard magazine. Here is what the “New Flame” singer had to say:
“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 in my life but all of the moments that will make up my life.”
