Chris Brown covers Billboard: ‘Maybe I was out of control’...

A fedora-wearing Chris Brown graces the latest issue of Billboard. The cover comes with the interesting subheading: “Maybe I was out of control.” In his first post-jail interview, the singer discusses his new album 'X', life behind bars, ex-girlfriend Rihanna, and overcoming his issues. 

Rihanna stays on the brain. It wouldn't be the first tactical move to plug his new albums. It IS called 'X' after all. The full story is out today and here are some excerpts below.

On living under a microscope:
“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.”
On moving forward:
“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. I have been moving forward and hope that I am not defined by just a few moments in my life but all of the moments that will make up my life.”
