Chris Brown shows his softer side

Interesting how a restraining order will make a man show his softer side.

Chris Brown, charged with five years probation and six months of community service for the beating he gave his ex-girlfriend Rihanna nine months ago, is still apologizing – this time for using Twitter to wax nostalgic about the ghosts of his relationship past.

Late Sunday night, the 20-year-old singer tweeted a link to a video montage on YouTube featuring him and Rihanna in better days, set to a saccharine song by Lee Carr, “The Way We Used To Be.” Brown wrote with the link, “IM SORRY YALL. JUST HAD TO POST IT.”

He followed that tweet minutes later with: “FOR THE FELLAS: showing emotion doesn't make u weak... BEING HONEST MAKES U STRONG.”

The video for Brown’s latest single, “I Can Transform Ya” debuted today.

    Why does it seem that people forget what happened? It was a VIOLENT ASSAULT. Yes, punished by a court of law...parole. Great.Community service. Tough. Cleaning graffiti and garbage pick up. Ouch.

    7 billion people live on this planet. 7 billion people who can replace this Violent convicted felon. We are lucky we live on a continent that doesn't accept the mass murder or rape of women to control power. However, we seem to live on a continent that accepts Violent Assaults on women, because some God will judge them in the end. Well....We're here now. We're living NOW. Right now the choice is up to each individual...and I for one find it sad that there are young people out there believing it's alright...still supporting him with their hard earned money....still believing he's an alright guy...7 billion people on this planet...I bet there's a much better person out there to give a darn about.

    Right or wrong who are we to judge him. We are all sinners. I think evereyone can change. Should she take him back? NO! But I don't think it is right for us to continue to point fingers. If he was not who he is would it really matter?

    I think Chris Brown made a error in judgement in the event between him and his ex. However I think he has faced a court of law for his mistake and suffered the consequences. He has also apologized repeatly. He is young and this was his first relationship in the public eye. He is trying to make amends and I think we should have the humility to let him. I don't think anyone should be so harsh there are things that each one of us has done that is less than perfect that we would not want to overshadow us for our whole life. He is human just because this situation happened doesn't mean the feelings he has go away over night. He is trying to work on getting back on track and I don't think we should tear him down when he is trying but rather foster progress to ensure this will not happen again.

    This is what happens when you give a black kid with no talent, no education, no ability to conjugate the verb "to be", millions of dollars and lots of publicity. He gets the adoration of thousands of stupid women who only want to see him break up with a girlfriend they think is a "ho" and who they think probably deserved to be beat up in the first place.

    The problem isn't just with Chris Brown. The problem is within the black community.

    Everybody need to give him a break. Everyone make mistakes. The people bad talking him are the main ones that need to get their life together. Hitting women isn't right, but he deserves a second chance. Chris, you are an amazing performer and one of the best out there. Keep doing your thing and don't let negativity bring you down.

    when is everybody going to get over their slef and quit talking about chris brown. i still listen to his music and i think nothing is wrong with him. he is a human being like all of us.and everybody makes mistakes.let him put that in the past and let him move on with his life without drama. if you don’t want to listen to chris brown’s music than don’t listen to it and keep it to your self. chris brown will always be my babe. and i truly think he is srry for what he done. he is getting help and he already said he was sorry.what else do you want from him. i am a christian and like God said that no one sin is greater than the other. So get off your high and mighty horses and be real with yourselves. Just remember you will be judged according to the way you judge others. so look in the mirror before u start judging somebody else. i love you , chris brown and stay strong.<3

    The people with extremely hateful and judgemental comments probably have never, will never buy a Chris Brown cd. Probably never knew about him till this happens. So.. He will have a long career. Is it wrong he beat a woman? No. Do some women/men deserve to be beat? Yes. And im sorry if youre one f those who gets smacked around and so he is the devil to you. Im buying his next album. He has been punnished by the law. Get over it.

    I am so disappointed when people judge CB in that way even when people talk about mistake. It's was a clash in their relationship no one was there to know how it's starts. We women sometimes we react like men do not feel some. I am a woman and it's not just that i jealous of Rihana but this all thing made me love CB now. Please do not turn ur own frustration in other people problem. And i think the juge was so unfair... Sometimes i think that we are another world...

    How many times has a women put her hand on a man and a man do nothing? None of us was in the car that night , none of us know the whole true story. I agree that the situation could've easily been avoided but since it happened and the law punished him, I think the public should get over it and let it go. Yes, he may be doing it for the record sales or to fill shoes. He's an entertainer ,thats his career, thats how he pays his bills so ofcourse he's going to do whatever he feels is in his best interest to keep the money flowing in. I have never seen so many people hold grudges for so long. Its been almost a year already let it go and move on. If Rhiana isn't complaining why should we.

    Personally I hate Chris Brown. I hate his music. I find him a slightly talented over played artist who has alot of demons. My dislike of him continued further when I found he put his hand on a woman. Mike Tyson did it and it was ignored. Ike did it and it was Ignored. All you forgiving people wouldn't be so forgiving if it was you daughter. A mistake is when you talk all you minutes up on the cell. Or spill soda. Hitting someone is not a mistake. In this day and age of people being denied rights to love when you treat it like it means nothing. Then you deserve nothing.

    When was the last time you heard anything from Rihanna about this 'mistake'? Never. She's not said a word about it to the public. And Over THIS: "Women: if you don't want to be hit back...dont hit first. PERIOD." Have you been taught that lesson the hard way? Sounds like it. You've spoken to her about how much she 'enjoys playing the victim'? So, to you, Rihanna (lets just say Female victim) so to you, "Female Victim" is way more in the wrong than the man who assaulted her to the point of bleeding, bruising, not to mention the devil horn gooseeggs on her forhead.....Do you happen to be a young female with a crush on the Guilty party? Seems like it. You're disappointed he 'still loves her'. You know him personally as well? She DOESNT DESERVE SOMEONE TO 'LOVE' HER, as you put it? Wow. Way to take a stand! You sound as if you're disappointed he didn't beat the dirt out of you! At least that way you would be able to find some "unsetteling comfort" that someone 'loves' You.

  18. Over THIS

    Yall need to move on just as much as they do.You are no one to judge him, nor anyone else. No it is not acceptable that he beat on her BUT neither was it acceptable for HER to hit him first. Women: if you don't want to be hit back...dont hit first. PERIOD. I am a woman and I personally think that Chris Brown is trying to move on with his life but b/c of his celebrity he feels that he has to keep apologizing. This incident is a mistake and it doesn't make him who he is. He is paying his debt to society for his crime....yall need to let it go. Period. It makes me sick how Rihanna isn't telling the truth. It makes me sick how Chris is the only one shown in the limelight as being negative...when Rihanna was in the wrong too. NO I am not saying ANYONE deserves to be hit or beat on BUT... she isn't innocent either. She has been capitalizing off of this from day one and she loves the attention. After all that has happened, she has found a lot of unsettling comfort in PLAYING a victim. I will never support her music or her career again. I think she is pathetic and I think it's disappointing that Chris Brown still loves her. She definitely doesn't deserve it...

    I think people need to remember he's a real person....just because he's got a CD/Music out there that people recognize, doesn't mean he's above anyone. Frankly, I think people forget that he beat the daylights out of her, and no, it's none of our business, it became our business when the damage done was shown, and the story told. You do not treat ANYONE that way, regardless of relationship status. I find it unbelievable the number of people who A, make an excuse for him, B, think it's alright, it was just a mistake, he didn't 'mean' to do it etc. and C, that people are judging HER. as if her actions NOW reflect anything about him. It has nothing to do with him, she's living her life as she sees fit, I highly doubt she's out there to make you all believe she's 'rubbing it in his face and acting wild and crazy now because of this'. Physically beating the crap out of someone whilst trapped in a car on the street...would mean that someone is seriously disturbed. No amount of apologizing, or so called damage control, is going to change my mind about the kind of person he seems to be. Do you think Rihanna is okay with his apologies? No. Do you think his so called 'probation & community 'service" is going to make her feel better? No. Here, I beat you to a pulp...but me picking garbage makes up for it, right? Corporate sponsors have dropped him...why can't the general public? Can you imagine what kind of message this is sending to his fan base? that, from what I can tell from the media, seems to be the tween girls....He beat up his girlfriend, denied it, won't admit it, won't shut up about it, and that says to the tween girls who think he's 'dreamy' that he's an alright guy, he seemed sorry for 'whatever it was' he did.

    Would you want your 14 year old daughter dating this guy in 5 years? They still think he's cute though, so it's okay, right?

    The american media has brainwashed it's youth into believing this is okay, this is how grown adults act. They've been taught that a 2nd chance is availbale to anyone out there who almost admits to what he's done, and MUST feel bad about it, so he doens't deserve any negative attention.

    Those out there with the attitude of he's a kid, he's young, he's niave, he didnt know better while it was happeneing, get a grip. Any other 20 something that would have made it into the media by beating his girlfriend senseless in a car would never be given any excuse to make it seem 'not so bad'. He's old enough to know you don't lay your hands on anyone, let alone someone half your size, LET ALONE, someone you love.

    I feel that Chris Brown has been condemned as though he is the only one who ever made a mistake I think that he is truly sorry for what he did and losing Rhianna is punishment enough, we need to realize that forgiveness is key when we are trying to heal.

    I agree with most of you. People need to move on. The media will continue to portray Chris as the bad one and Rihanna as the good one (just because Rihanna called 911 etc). No one knows what Rihanna had done to Chris that day or in the past. People usually do not hurt another person unless the other person provokes them in some way.

    I truly believe we should give Chris another chance, especially with his music. Yes, he made a horrible mistake, but EVERYONE makes mistakes at least once during their lifetime. Grow up, people!

    I will continue to support his music, no matter what.

    Now is Chris guilty yes, he rergets it, i'm sure we all have done things we regret, ours was just not in the public eye. Celebrities are human beings to, and I believe that's what we forget.

    I have personally never stopped supporting Chris Brown. It's amazing how although no one else actually witnessed what happened in February, a majority of people have taken her side. Well, I believe that this young man did not just abuse his girlfriend without being provoked. He's a good guy who made a life-altering mistake. He has paid for it and will continue to pay for it. I can respect him a lot for not airing all the details and for taking responsibility. She has never taken any responsibilty for her actions during this incident or others. Guess what??? The man is not always the abuser. Sometimes he has to defend himself. Just think, if Rihanna would admit to hitting her own brother in the head with a bottle, what do you think she would do to someone else?

    I agree that it was a mistake. I was merely commenting on the fact that other bloggers were calling it a silly mistake as if it were a light mistake. I do not take my family's mistakes, Nixon's, and especially Bush's mistakes lightly. This "mistake" was not silly or small. By the way calling this type of assault, threat on someone else's life, and subsequently choking them is not considered a mistake. It is considered a crime. It was an intentional act that deserves more punishment than was given. Would you call OJ murdering Nicole Brown Simpson a mistake? Heck no!! It was a crime. It was murder. Without the interference of the law, this violent relationship could have turned out the same way.

    Yes I agree that it is not ok for a woman to hit a man. I agree. First of all, we only know one thing and that is what Rihanna looked like after she was assaulted. We know really nothing about their relationship. Why? Because it is behind closed doors and the media loves to distort facts and create hype. I only go off of facts. She may have hit him in self defense. She may have assaulted him before. Who knows? We will never know. The media is not truthful. I choose not to speculate.

    For those of you who think Chris Brown made a small or silly mistake. Where has America gone? Since when is beating up a woman, choking her, and threatening to kill her a silly mistake. It is not an OOPS my bad situation. Getting a question wrong on a test is a silly mistake. Brown is only sorry for one thing and that is finally getting caught. Obviously this happened before. Abuse starts small and then builds from there. Just a silly mistake? That is the stupidest thing I ever heard.

    I think its funny that people defend him. In all my 31 years of life on this earth I have never once purposely caused harm to anyone or anything. Call me old fashioned but biting someone, especially a female, punching and attempting to murder that person for something as ridiculous as a text message is a clear sign that he is unstable and violent. He does not deserve my respect and he's not getting it. I don't care how much trash you pick up Chris...do us all a favor and climb in the bag yourself.

    A silly mistake? Is that what people call biting and punching a woman? HE BIT HER!!!!!! HE BIT HER!! I'm sorry but I'm not going to forget what he did. Forgive him? Sure, ok.

Why are people so willing to accept a man punching a woman in the face repeatedly and BITING her? Stop saying, "he's young." That is an excuse. Quit bashing Rihanna. What is she supposed to do? Stay in her house and not live her own life? Puhleeze. She didn't committ a crime, he did!! Of course he's sorry. He should be. But that doesn't mean his BEATING Rihanna is just crossed out of the public memory. This is not about judging him. But if Rihanna were your sister, daughter, cousin, what would you tell her? Would you still defend Chris and his actions?

    I have sat to my desk this morning and read all of these comments you all have wrote. I do not like Chris Brown like that and I do not condone what he has done. But, remember that it is to sides of a story. The only side that is really going to come out is his side. Now Rihana has told her side of the drama and Chris has told his side of the drama. Yes the law is going to believe what she said. which they should do. but we all know that is not the whole Truth to the drama. And the only two people real know the real story about the drama is Chris and Rihana.

    Haters will all ways be haters. everyone of you have some worst drama in you life then he does. Stop being judgmental and let him live his life. All of you have sined and would like to be forgiving, so give him a break. and fellas you all are not goodie goodies ok. everyone is not perfect and we all make mistakes.

    Leave the nasty criticize comments to your self and take a good long look in the mirror and say to yourself, I am not perfect and I have make mistakes and that I was forgiving.

    9 months ago, How long are you all going to go on with the negative. The court case is finish, punishment is laid out for him and he is now doing what he has to do. move on

    People think positive and God bless

    Chris is a grown man now. He is not a little boy anymore
    What he done to rihanna was terrible and no man should put there hands on a woman ever and same goes for women
    But everyone hands is dirty. No one is innocent. Wheather you've grown up seeing a violent relationship in your household or been through it, that doesn't mean you have to hold a grudge on someone forever
    He made a mistake because wheather we relise it or not he is a human being. It doesn't make he's a bad person for what he's done
    Rihanna is trying to move on obviously and forget about it
    Chris wants people to forgive him
    Wheather your a fan or not. Holding a grudge is like holding hate in your heart.

    OH PLEASE PEOPLE! I am a male that was raped with I was 16. I don't use that as an excuse to go out and rape others. What is this "he is just a kid bs?" A kid is 6, 9, 12, 14, possibly 16, but once you get to be 17/18 you are an adult. He didn't act like an adult. He acted like a 6 year old out on the playground that was a pussy and beat up a small girl. He deserves a lot more punishment than he got. All of you morons defending him just helps continue the justification for this type of behavior. What if he beat up you, your sister, daughter or granddaughter? WOULD YOU BE SO FORGIVING THEN? I think not.

    Most of you on his place would do worst thing than what he has done. I wont criticize him because only Rihana and Chris know the story. What would happen if it was Chris the victim? Chris is loosing his face by apologizing too much. It was a mistake, and everybody make mistakes. LEAVE THE MUD BEHIND, dont bring it in your pant. Once you clean it by aoplogizing why should he keep on aplogizing? Go Chris maybe if its the woman of your heart, let the storm be calm and you dont have to fight with it, you will meet her again in the comming years. But for sure she won't be the same Rihana that you knew before as you wont be the same Chris that she knew.

    What a LOOOSER. He should just go away and leave us all alone. If I see ANYMORE stories on him they should be him doing his community service like cleaning toilets or trash since he is a piece of ****.

    He obviously has issues that he needs some counseling for and maybe he can get the help he truly needs. It just amazes me how he says he did not remember all that happened. How can you BEAT SOMEONE DOWN AND NOT REMEMBER WHAT YOU DID? We all saw the pictures and they horrified us all. Some one should beat him down so he can see what it is like too.

    If he was being "honest" he should still be apologizing to Rhianna and his fans for making stupid mistakes, BREAKING THE LAW and setting a poor example for all those young fans. He should have done some jail time for the beating but see what money can buy you???? Freedom, unfortunately.

    Actually, showing emotion shows that you care but being honest doesn't make you strong, it makes you realize. After all, if people were honest, wouldn't we be all perfect?

    He is still young and looks like he's still learning from his experience. He must have a guilty conscience for what he has done but if he talked it over with Rihanna, I think he should have moved on with it. He's a young kid and I'm sure a good one. But is different in his case. Women get physically, verball and emotionally abuse in this country, the numbers are huge! I know he feels bad and wants to reconcile what any bad emotions he may have felt through this ordeal. And if he was strong, why not move on instead of remembering it?

    What the mind says doesn't tell you how it feels, there's a difference. And so far, seems like he's feeling for the most part and is good, he is yuong. It can make a him a better person socially and environmentally, I'm sure he's a good guy.

    I applaud him for being a man and standing up to himself, like a man should but even Rihanna should watch out. There ain't nothing sexy if your man can manipulate your own actions instead of yours, it makes you look weak and unreliable.

    Chris is an adult and he should act like one, not think like one. He has money, resources, friends, best friends, family to support every day and his girl, Rihanna. What the public may see is different to what you actually feel and he is showing it that's for sure.

    Just relax...and my next advice, you better, I mean, better NOT do anything like that, hear my warning Chris.

    You seem like a good guy, act like one and be strong about it, there's a difference.

    I think that if he's genuinely sorry, he should get a second chance. He's currently paying his debt to society, and I hope he's really learned his lesson about dealing with people who have no qualms about pushing your buttons, and controlling his actions. He's not off the hook for what he did, but at least he's not denying his issues.

    Overall, I'll forgive Chris Brown way before I forgive R. Kelly. People laughed at Chris's interview on CNN, but it was far better than R. Kelly's "define teenager" bull. And real talk, while people are throwing stones at Chris Brown, let's take a look at ourselves. I bet if all our dirt were to be aired, it would show far worse things than Chris's dirt.

    To all of you who have posted saying this is a 'mistake', I ask to you, have you been in an abusive relationship? There is no excuse for domestic violence.

    Does he deserve to be forgiven? Absolutely. He went to court and is carrying out his sentence. While there is controversy over his sentence and whether it was strong enough, he is adhering to his judgment.

    As a survivor of domestic violence, I do NOT condone what Mr. Brown did and I do admit, I lost respect for him when this incident was reported. However, I do forgive him for what he did. I know if I chose not to forgive the person who hurt me, I would lead a miserable life full of anger, resentment, revenge, and pain.

    Instead, it is essential to focus on the now. How can we educate young chlidren and teens that violence isn't the answer? How can we counsel those who are already abusers? How can we stop insurance companies from dropping women, stating 'domestic violence is a pre-existing condition'?

    It is how we choose to move on and transform the future, that will make all the difference.

But thanks to God, he forgives us.
    What Chris did was very wrong, but who are we to judge him? We need to pray for him and Rhianna, that neither of them get into situations like this again.

    I believe that everyone deserves to be forgiven ,BUT you first have to admit that you have done something wrong> Chris has never said that he is guilty of beating Rihanna. This is not about not being Christian enough to forgive a person, this is about a vicious attack on a woman by the hands of a man that has built his career on catering to women. Most of his biggest fans are women. So no, this is not about being a hater or claiming to be perfect. Yes, Chris should be given another chance, but he first has to admit he did it and not "whatever it is", He needs to be MAN enough to say I did this!!!! Not sweep in under the rug like someone said as a "silly mistake" many women have lost their lives at the hands of a man the claimed to love them.

    The only reason he is 'taking responsibility" is because he knows his career is over. When he say 'I'm sorry, for whatever it is I did", that just doesn't sound like he's manning up. He's a sweet man? What sweet man beats and chokes the women he loves? How many times can you make the same 'mistake", until it's not a mistake? From what I hear, this isn't the first time he's done this. Not taking responsibility sets a bad example for our young people. Yeah, he's doing community service and donating money, but all because he knows the ride is over and he's desperate to get it back. What if it was you, young women, that he beat up, not once or twice, but more? Would you be so willing to forgive. Something tells me no. Should we give him a second chance? Sure, but take responsibility, not brush it off to 'Oh, I'm young and I'm still learning.' He's the one who all swagger, acting like an adult. Oh, but now, he's a young kid. I know I've made mistakes in life too, but I never beat a women black and blue, I never deprived someone of their basic human right. All you young girls are saying is that even though he would beat you silly, you'd still stay with him. That too send the wrong message. Do I feel sorry for Chris? No I don't. He caused this mess, and until he REALLY accepts responsibility, let him stew in his own juices.

    Please, beating up on someone is not a mistake. Especially when it comes to a MAN against a WOMAN. I don't care how much help he gets. Once a beater always a beater.

I have a whole of sympathy in my body but some things are just unforgivable.
    And if Chris Brown wanted people to forget about what he did he would stay out of the spotlight for a year and make something of his life while he is still young and stop posting crap to re-remind people of what he's done.

    yea i agree, he should have never hit her, even if she had hit him first in the past or in this indicdent. real man needed to walk / get away, not wail on her. caught he was, and sentenced he has been. sure i question the leniancy of the sentence too. BUT he is at least doing the service, trying to make ammends. this country is all about 2nd chances and i sincerely hope he has learned from his mistake, and makes ammends = the tour w/ some proceeds going to abuse is a step in the right direction. i hope he continues to make ammends. rome wasnt built in a day. he isnt a child but still is a youngster, and if his background( witness domestic abuse) is true, that is yet another obstacle for him to overcome. not an excuse for what he did, but you cant deny it being a factor in how the whole ordeal happened, either.

    He didn't say it was an accident, he said it was a mistake. A mistake is anything that you do in error, whether intentionally or not. We all make mistakes, some worse than others. I know that we've been a country very unforgiving of the mistakes of the young. That's why we have children as young as 9, and 10 years old being tried as adults. While Chris is no child, he is still young and learning. I don't think he's done anything that would exclude him of the right to redeem himself. He's been punished in a court of law and his has been issued his punishment. Yall need to get a life.

    I hope you learned your lesson and will be a MAN instead of a PUNK if and when this occurs again.

    Hey folks, get a clue, listen to his words; I'm sorry for whatever it is???? Doesn't sound like taking responsiblity. As for the fact he is only a kid, I didn't hit women at 19, how many of you think that is a good excuse.

    My issue is by his own words, he is not accepting responsibility, he just wants it over....what if it was your daughter?

    domestic violence is not a mistake, its a crime against women and we need to remember that or we do the women in our lives; wives, mothers, sisters etc a disservice!!!!

    It wasn't a mistake, he had probably done it before, he just got caught this time. Now he is starting to realize ( i hope) what happens when you hit a woman. With that being said, I like him a lot, he's a great talent and I hope he can bounce back from this.

    Honestly, I love Chris Brown. People make mistake and things do happen. He apologized for what he did and excepted the consequences for his actions. People just need forgive him, as if they would forgive everyone else for making mistakes.

    Well i think he has to go through all this BS so he learns and grows from it one day – I dont believe in calling what he did a "mistake" his not a child.. his an adult and therefore should be held responsible – I am only glad that Rhianna has moved on and still doing her thang.

    I think you guys should give Chris a break. He made a silly mistake and he's realized it.
    You shouldn't allow what has happened to destroy the young man's future. Let's forgive as our heavenly father forgives us each and every day of our sinful lives.

    Just a classless loser. I hope his career fails within the next year. Sick and tired of seeing this guy everywhere.

    i really think he is sorry and i feel he learned his lesson. not in any situation is it right for a dude to EVER put his hands on a female, but take in consideration that he was under the influence and that makes a situation worst.

    Some of you are so judgmental and unforgiving. He's a KID, at least to grown people. Let him be. Most of you who despise him now never even heard of him before the incident. He's kept his head down while Rihanna has been carrying on like a recently uncaged vulture.

    I think it's disgusting the way he is trying to spin this in his direction. He says he wants to move on? Of course, he does. Everyone wants to move on when they are painted in a bad light. He's only "sorry" for "whatever it is" because he's worried about his freakin' record sales and concert attendance.
    Everyone should just do what they do with trash, get it out and forget about it.
