"For me, you know, I've been humbled by the whole experience," he explained of his conviction subsequent rehabilitation, "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 a man, you know?"

Many believe Brown has appeared unrepentant for his brutal attack on Rihanna, which made worldwide news at the time. "I think everybody is entitled to their opinion," he said on the matter, "For me, it's just a learning process. You know, I have to just take it one day at a time.
