Chris Brown Says ‘I Lost Everything’ During ‘Today’ Show Interview

While Chris Brown’s new single and video debuted online, the singer made his return to ‘The Today’ show show earlier this morning (Apr.1). This time he sat in the hot seat while host Matt Lauer who fired away with the tough questions. As expected, Brown was also hit with questions surrounding his reconciliation with Rihannaa. “From me losing everything, you know, to me having to regain public opinion or whatever it is,” the singer told Matt Lauer. “But most importantly, you know, knowing that what I did was totally wrong and having to kind of deal with myself and kind of forgive myself in the same breath and being able to apologize to, you know, Rihanna and be that man that can be who is a man.” Brown attributed his 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling as a big help in him maturing and learning from his mistakes. He vowed to never lay his hands on Rihanna again. “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,” he said. “Everything that I’m doing with my music is to hopefully inspire the world and inspire people who have been on my situation, even everybody who’s trying to learn from me.”
