The 23-year-old singer was publically chastised for the incident though managed to retain his fan-base and went on to win a Grammy Award last year. Brown dropped by the Today show on Monday morning to chat about his music though discussion inevitably turned to Rihanna, who took her boyfriend back last year.

"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. I can't make everybody like me...it's about me being positive." The singer has undergone 52 weeks of domestic-violence counselling and says "everything's good" between him and girlfriend Rihanna.

When asked if he was sure another violent incident would never happen, the singer laughed, "Absolutely!".
