Chris Brown Determined to Put Past Behind Him
Chris Brown is determined to put his checkered past behind him after confessing he had been “out of control”.
The singer has been involved in a number of legal battles over the past few years, from assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 to the more recent charge of beating up a man outside a hotel in Washington, D.C. last year.
In the latest issue of Billboard magazine, which features Brown on the cover, he discusses his forthcoming album X and his recent troubles, admitting, “Maybe I was out of the control.”
However, days after the interview took place, Brown was witness to yet another unforeseen incident, as hip-hop mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight was shot at a party in Los Angeles hosted by the singer last month.
Brown reached back out to Billboard to release his first statement after the incident, saying, “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.
“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.”
