Chris Brown is no stranger to controversy, with his latest incident occurring just this week when he dressed up as a terrorist for Halloween with a group of his friends.
The “Wake Me Up” singer, who was charged with assaulting Rihanna in 2009 and has since reunited with her 3 years later, is explaining his journey to become a better person on MTV’s This Is How I Made It.
Brown, 23, explained "Having to get personal opinion back and having to gain personal success back. . . it's not all the way back, you know? But it's one of my most humbling experiences.”
He added, "I can't hate people for making judgment on me or making a decision of liking me or not liking me. All I can do is try to be better as a person, and I'm good with knowing everything isn't always going to be perfect,” Us Magazine reports.
Brown continued to say "The fan base that I have and the actual support is unreal to me. They've put me in a position to be able to help people and continue to do music and help my family, help my mom. I just want my fans to be able to identify, whether it be the ones that maybe could of had everything or they maybe blew their chance and they failed and didn't know how to get back up."
In the episode, which will air tomorrow, Brown says he wants his story to turn into a positive one for those who need it.
“My story or my life or my legacy can hopefully show them that once you're down, that don't just mean you're down forever,” he said. “You never let up. A lot of the negatives that we always go through, we're gonna have to get through that. It sounds crazy, but that's what makes us who we are."
Brown’s newest backlash derives from the singer dressing up as a member of the Taliban, something he has not spoken out about. His mother, however, has defended her son’s choice by saying “HALLOWEEN IS FOR FUN NOTHING MORE THAN JUST FUN. GET A LIFE PLEASE."
