Chris Brown Speaks Out

Chris Brown may be a public enemy since he was accused of beating up his girlfriend, Rihanna, but now he has a message for the world: “I ain’t a monster!” In a grainy video shot in a bowling alley, Chris Brown acknowledges that he’s been lying low since the news of Rihanna’s abuse surfaced, saying “I ain’t been out there in a minute.” He stops to thank his true fans, and, of course to promote his new album, Graffiti. “Everybody’s that’s haters, they’ve just been haters,” Brown says wagging a finger at the camera. “All my real fans, I love y’all. I ain’t a monster.”
