And he released a new music video...
Chris Brown was a guest on Today this morning, where he said he learned his lesson about beating Rihanna in 2009. He also released the music video for "Fine China", which is about treating a woman right.
He said: "For me, you know, I've been humbled by the whole experience," he tells Matt Lauer. "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?"
He said that 52 weeks in domestic violence counseling taught him to ask "why did I do what I did?"
He added: "Knowing that what I did was wrong, and never doing it again. So as far as me and [Rihanna] are concerned, she knows my heart, and I know her heart. So I'm not really focused on the negative."
Matt Lauer replied: "You understand that if you behave badly again, you're going to damage not only your relationship, but her reputation as well."
Brown said: "Absolutely. That's why I'm moving forward, positive."
"Fine China" is from Brown's new album X, which will be out this summer. He co-directed the video with Sylvian White.
