Video: Chris Brown Confirms He’s Still With Rihanna + Talks Controversial Past, & New Album

Chris Brown has been receiving mixed reactions from fans after his appearance on The Today Show this morning with journalist, Matt Lauer. Chris opened up about his past mistakes (of course, the interview wouldn’t be complete without questions regarding the 2009 assault involving his on/off love, Rihanna), being a changed man, his new album, X, and where his relationship with Rih Rih stands now…

On what he’s learned from his past mistakes:

I think it’s just me proving myself once again, and also me just being a man, and knowing what I did wrong and never doing it again. 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 it was absolutely wrong.

On the public’s opinion 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, and everything I do in my music is to inspire the world.

Chris also confirmed that he and Rihanna are still together despite a recent interview, and reports claiming the two had broken up…

We’re fine, they got it wrong. [It was] an old interview from a year prior. Yeah, everything’s good, we’re fine.

Watch the interview above, and post your thoughts!

    I don’t want to be negative but the more Chris talks about the 09 incident the more i think about the possibility that Rihanna hit him first – I know I know it doesn’t excuse what he did but if Chris did all that to her js bc she questioned him over a text message (& she NEVER laid hands on him) then he needed serious counseling ..does anyone not question that ? Even with articles from long ago that ‘claimed’ that she was the aggressor in the relationship & yet Chris was the person ‘with no soul’ – I don’t excuse his behavior bc he does have issues but she does too ..we’ve seen plenty of stories where women falsely accused or attacked a guy first or what have you & the guy gets in trouble bc we always side with the females ..I’m not saying she wasn’t hurt (clearly she was) but its not to say she didn’t instigate..I honestly don’t think it’s far fetched to believe she hit him as well in prior situations ..I just feel like if we’re gonna continuously question Chris for this then how come noone can ask her whether or not she laid hands on him as well ? I’ve never seen that in any interview …y don’t some ever think that women can’t be aggressors either ..sorry for the long post :(

      Ummm. If Rihanna hits Chris Brown whether in jest or not it's obviously not going to hurt as much. The fact of the matter is Chris is a man and when he exerts violence towards Rihanna she is undoubtedly going to be hurt and probably have significant injuries. If Rihanna punches Chris whilst their arguing he's most likely to shake it off and move on. The law outlines reasonable force in defending oneself and that night he went WAY beyond reasonable. Of course men can be abused and are but to try to make this situation into that is reaching.

        its not necessarily reaching bc people really have the mindset that women cant hurt men..forget about this situation…but there are others in where a woman does abuse a man regardless of size & people dont believe it bc while men are taught to not hit women they figure if they are being abused then they can defend themselves or theres no way a woman can hurt a man..either way my saying is people should keep there hands to themselves

          I completely agree with you. I was talking only about this situation in regards to my comment.

    I've said that for the longest! That girl won everything and everybody over with those sympathy votes from that sit down interview with Diane Sawyer! Rhianna is a joke and people fall for it everytime! If it wasn't for her hits she wouldn't be nothing! Honestly from all that happening I think that drove Chris crazy because she made him out to be the devil and she should have admitted that she hit him first and she didn't. Instead she did the opposite to make it seem like they were in a Ike and Tina relationship. SMH

      thank you! im not saying she's not a victim HOWEVER i do believe she's just as guilty if not more of abuse…its like people forgot when it was said that Rih used to slap him around ..i remember they asked Lil Mama & Jordin Sparks about Rih being at their vid shoots..& i got the impression that she was one of those jealous gf types….my thing is If they can still TO THIS DAY ask Chris about 09 then how come someone can't ask her if she hit him? its like people are afraid to offend bc they figure if a woman did indeed hit a man & we question them with whether or not they hit them as well then that means that we are blaming them for what happened ..it was widely reported that she used to really fight her brothers like real like fist fight & shit…

      I've always believe Rih hit him hell my momma will pop my dad upside the head if he makes her mad enough lol. Idk why people kept saying just b/c we believe Rihanna may have hit Chris that somehow meant we were excusing his behavior or taking up for him. No, a man should not hit a woman but let's not act like women don't hit men and push their buttons then scream foul when they finally hit back.

    Well I have first hand knowledge rhi used to constantly push slap and hit Chris. That night was no different….until he finally hit her ass back. Nope wasn’t right, but that’s what happened. How ’bout everybody keep their hands to themselves.

    That "common sense" flower just doesn't grow in every garden… it's unfortunate.
