Today in “Oh, f-ck off” news, Chris Brown is actually talking about beating Rihanna up – no, he hasn’t forgot it happened – and he wants everyone to know that he really regrets it but that we can all shut the hell up about it because he’s earned his forgiveness.
From The Mirror:
Rihanna’s boyfriend Chris Brown has described his vicious assault on the singer as the “greatest regret” of his life.
Speaking for the first time about their recent reconciliation, the US R&B star shrugged off the public backlash against him and pledged never to hurt the Bajan beauty again.
In a searingly honest interview with The Mirror, he apologised for his actions in 2009, when he physically attacked Rihanna, leaving her shocked and bruised.
And Brown admitted that winning her love back had taken many months of tough “serious making up”.
He said: “Sometimes you row, you fight, with the one you love and things get said, stuff spirals.
“That night was the deepest regret of my life, the biggest mistake.
“But she loves me – what can I say? I’m forgiven… but, yes, I worked hard for it.”
Talking at Elton John’s Aids Foundation Oscars fund raising party in West Hollywood, the double platinum-selling star said he had “grown up” and learned how to deal with fame.
He also dismissed a bad taste joke by host Seth Macfarlane during the Academy Awards ceremony – in which Macfarlane compared the “unspeakably violent” movie Django Unchained to “date night for Rihanna and Chris Brown”.
Brown, 23, said: “People attack me and criticise me, it happens all the time.
“But they don’t know me, and they don’t know us. It doesn’t bother me any more.
“Other people can judge us but they don’t know anything.”
I’m pretty sure I know a few things, the first of which is that regardless of how many “things get said” and how far stuff “spirals”, I have never hit anyone and would kick anyone who ever laid a finger on me to the curb indefinitely. Second of all, people attack and criticise you because you’re an absolute asshole, Chris Brown. You’re the worst. Ever.
You know what? I’m just not even doing this anymore. I’m just wasting my breath.
