Chris Brown acknowledges he attract trouble like a magnet, but swears he’s trying to be the best man he can be.
The talented song and dance man, who recently spoke to Billboard in an image-rehabilitating piece following his release from jail in June, submit a follow-up statement to the music journal after ex-Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight was shot at a MTV VMAs party Brown was hosting at Los Angeles’ 1OAK Aug. 23.
"I realize that what I do for a living opens my life to public scrutiny and that I have a responsibility to everyone because of that exposure," the R&B superstar Billboard. "I can say that I am only human and I have made mistakes. I can say that I try to live my life in the most true, honest way that I can. I am not perfect, no one is.
“No one is harder on me than me. No one can please everyone. No one can live in the past and expect to grow.”
The 25-year-old “Forever” singer said he’s been “moving forward,” hoping he’s “not defined by just a few moments in my life but all of the moments that will make up my life."
Following the Aug. 23 incident, Brown took to Twitter to write that ”it's disappointing that we as a society can't have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes.”
Knight survived the six shots and remains recovering from his wounds; authorities have yet to make any arrests in connection with the incident.
