People make mistakes, so get over it people. I'm sure that someone in this forum has some sort of issue with his/her spouse or girlfriend/boyfriend. So who are any of you to judge? Move on and live your lives and let others live theirs. Stop being so nosy... A great phrase: mind your business you might live longer...

Clearly he was reading a script. Hopfully he agreed with what was on it. People do get second chances in life, but i also think he should have included a statement that it is never ok to hit someone you love or care for. . I have no idea if he was hit by Rihanna, but she clearly had major brusing. His future behavior will tell if he is sincere.

While he didn't get the same sentence as someone not famous would have gotten (IMO), he still kind of screwed himself in that he will be vulnerable to any wack-job woman who gets mad at him--she just has to acuse him of hitting her, even if he did not.

We all make mistakes and who knows maybe he did learn from his...let it rest...I was raised that you never put your hands on a woman and I by no means feel that what he did was ok.. now it's time for him to move forward with his life and try to put it behind him. My father always sad "it's nothing wrong with making mistakes as long as you learn from them" hopefully he has done that..but what I do know is...he deserves a chance to prove to himself and others, if he has truely learned...goodluck Cris

who cares. Maybe he can turn his life around now. Remember Ryan ONeal used to beat the hell out of Farrah Fawcett. That's why she left him the first time. Maybe he can turn his life around like Ryan did.

Um...he beat her to a pulp in February and now, in July, he apologizes?

I'll tell you why he's apologizing: because his career is in the gutter.
I'll tell you why he's apologizing NOW: because the case is over and there's no risk in saying he's sorry.

His lack of integrity and courage proved he's just a punk, if you ask me.

Whatever, it's crap. He still punched her in the face! PUNCHED A GIRL IN THE MOUTH... SEVERAL TIMES. What goes through a man's mind when he decides to hit a woman in the face? How did he think he'd get away with brutalizing his girlfriend? How was he going to face the world again after beating up Rhi Rhi? Come on! As a girl who has been abused before, it doesn't stop. He will do it again. He'll get away with it again. That's how the justice system works. he'll be a woman beater until he's a murderer. Just like the rest of the black "rapper" community. Guns and violence just come with the territory. We should've just expected it from him. He's black. He's sorry though. Right? So that makes it ok? Whatever, it's crap. Rot in hell Chris Brown.

This comes from the book of Michael Jackson, Chapter, I am completely innocent. Who are his publicist, He is wasting his money. This is D-List Ridiculous.

He is only doing this because he has an album coming out. If he were truly sorry, he wouldn't have worn an "oops" pendant and showed up to the NBA finals with a Rihanna look-alike. Trashy little thing he is BLEH!

OBVIOUSLY Written by his attorney. Not an OUNCE of remorse in his voice or mannerisms.

I wonder who wrote that speech for him???

When he said "Please, please, please forgive me". In order words, "Please forgive and let me go on
as a famous singer who can rack in the big bucks"
