Chris Brown Premieres New Video “Fine China” + Chats It Up With Matt Lauer Of The TODAY Show And Angie Martinez

Chris Brown sat down with Matt Lauer on “TODAY” this morning to promote his latest single “Fine China”, his “X” album and talk about his life since being convicted of felony assault charges in 2009 and giving up interviews a couple of years ago. Some of the highlights:

On how he’s changed and forgiven himself:

“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?”

On what the public thinks of him:

“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.”

On his relationship with Rihanna:

“Yeah, everything’s good, we’re fine. I think it’s just me proving myself once again Knowing that what I did was wrong, and never doing it again. So as far as me and (Rihanna) are concerned, she knows my heart, and I know her heart. So I’m not really focused on the negative.”

On proving himself:

“For me, it’s about proving myself to my fans. The only thing I can do is please my family, myself, and please her, you know, and my fans.”

 

He still hasn’t matured in my opinion. I’m still rooting for him but this interview wasn’t that good…it’s like his people didn’t prepare him. What’s up with the constant “You know” every five seconds. Maybe I’m just nitpicking. I do however like his new song, I’m glad that Chris is coming back around to R&B!

Seems like Chris was in the chatty mood, he also sat down with Hot 97 and Angie Martinez to discuss everything… including  Rihanna, Karrueche and Drake. What do you think of his interviews and new song? Check them out below!
