R&B singer and convicted felon Chris Brown was on the Today Show this morning to promote his new music video for the song “Fine China.” He also used the opportunity to try and revamp his public image.

Brown became one of the most hated and ridiculed music artists in 2009, when he was arrested and convicted of beating fellow R&B singer Rihanna. Since that time, Brown has been the subject of jokes meant to highlight the seemingly light punishment the singer faced for the domestic abuse, as well as the fact that it did not seem to derail his career.

Speaking with Matt Lauer, Brown had a different perspective on the incident. Lauer asked the singer how he has changed since the incident.

“Well, you know, for me I’ve been humbled by the whole experience, you know?” said Brown. “From me losing everything, you know, to me having to regain, you know, public opinion or whatever it is. But most importantly, you know, knowing that what I did was totally wrong, you know, and having to kinda deal with myself and kinda forgive myself in the same breath. And, you know, being able to apologize to, you know, Rihanna, and being able to be that man that can be a man, you know?”

Brown went on to assure Lauer that he put in his time with domestic violence counseling and that and incident like that would “absolutely” never happen again.

    Chris Brown—Abuse is really a control issue and a low self esteem issue. Bullies identify who they are by who the can control and abuse. Sometimes abusers have also been abused or bullied as a child. Abusers and their victims are so entwined emotionally with each other that it is hard to break away and it becomes on-again off-again relationship. The Merry-go-Round. Domestic Violence help and working on your identity is what is needed and a lot of working on yourself.

    Chris may have lost a lot such as respect from society–but he is still out there selling his CD’s, which is fine. He needs to really have a “spiritual experience” to make it stick. He needs to experience EXACTLY what he did to Rihanna. God and a spiritual experience or possibly promoting the $$$ he makes in his CD’s towards DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTERS and some how talk about how wrong he was to abused women and why he was wrong might work. The SPIRITUAL AWAKENING only comes from within when GOD convicts your heart and where there is TRUE REPENTANCE SHOWING FORWARD WITH GOOD BEHAVIOR. THIS IS WHEN SOCIETY MAY BELIEVE THAT HE TRULY HAS CHANGED.

    CHRIS BROWN—YOU ARE IN PUBLIC POSITION TO REALLY INFLUENCE A LOT OF LIVES FOR THE GOOD. BE A PUBLIC SPEAKER AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND BULLYING AND DONATE YOUR MONEY TOWARDS DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SHELTERS AND FIGHTING AGAINST BULLYING IN SCHOOLS. THIS WILL BE AN OUTWARD CHANGE THAT YOU HAVE REALLY CHANGED AND YOU WOULD GAIN TRUE RESPECT THAT YOU SEEK. GOD WILL FILL THAT HOLE IN YOUR HEART AND MAKE YOU RESPECTABLE. USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO DO RIGHT AND TURN IT AROUND AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND BULLYING IN OUR SCHOOLS AND SOCIETY.

    zoey—You are obsessed with Chris Brown. If he did not make good money or sell CD’s I bet you would not feel the same way. He is a man who became famous—still a man. He is not God..and right now he is not an honorable man. We all make mistakes and sometimes more serious than others. GOD SEES ALL AND HE KNOWS THE MOTIVES OF THE HEART. Chris needs to have a true heart felt experience that is spiritual with God first and then demonstrate outwardly that is truly SORRY. First he needs to ask GOD for forgiveness that he abused a precious child of HIS and then DEMONSTRATE it OUTWARDLY by maybe SPEAKING AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND DONATING $$$ FOR DV SHELTERS AND SPEAKING AGAINST BULLYING IN SCHOOLS AND SOCIETY. THE PUBLIC SPEAKING AGAINST BULLYING/DOMESTIC VIOLENCE WILL NOT ONLY HELP OTHERS BUT WILL HELP HIM MAKE THAT CHANGE. LISTEN TO MICHAEL JACKSON’S SONG “MAN IN THE MIRROR”–IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A CHANGE TAKE A LOOK AT YOURSELF AND MAKE A CHANGEEEEE”.
