Brown said of the assault, "I've been humbled by the whole experience. From me losing everything, you know, to me having to regain public opinion or whatever it is... 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, you know?"
He continued, "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."
Anchor Matt Lauer wasn't exactly bowled over by the claim that Chris Brown is a new man, bringing up his recent brawls with Frank Ocean and Drake. "I think everybody is entitled to their opinion," said Brown. "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."
Chris also said that he and Rihanna are still together and that he's learning from his mistakes. "As far as me and her are concerned, she knows my heart and I know her heart. I'm not really focused on the negative, everything about it is positive for me. I did my 52 weeks of counseling and learned that it was absolutely wrong."
