Chris Brown

Jail Is Terrible

I Feel Like a 'Caged Animal'

Chris Brown says he's finally been scared straight -- because he learned pretty quickly ... jail sucks.

You'd think the photos of Rihanna's battered face would have left an impression ... on him.  But apparently it took a few days in solitary to shake Chris to the core.

One source -- who recently spoke with Brown on the phone -- tells us, Chris says he feels like "a caged animal," calling it "the worst experience of my life."

We're told Chris has been spending his time behind bars working out and writing music.  He's telling people on the phone, "I'll never f*** up again."

Not particularly convincing. 

Lucky for Chris ... he's rich enough to buy his way out of jail -- as we reported, he's negotiating to pay off his alleged assault victim in D.C. so the case goes away and the judge in the Rihanna case lets him loose ... to roam freely again.

Why wouldn't paying someone off so that they don't testify against you considered witness tampering??

STOP acting like an animal and there will be no need to cage you or treat you like one. Simple as that, Chris.

I'll believe that scared straight bit when he hits the 1 year mark without getting into trouble.

Some people just learn the hardest way. It is something that I still have a hard time understanding. I guess it is 50 % genetic and 50 % the way you were raised and where you grew up. I'm not sure he has learned his lesson. He still keeps taking chances and if the change doesn't come from within than no amount of external control will keep him out of trouble. That is what integrity is about. It is about doing the right thing even when no one is looking, not because the po-po is coming after him.

It's appears the high class Malibu rehab joint wasn't so bad now after all, was it? Forget about the anger management BS. You WILL kill somebody one day if you don't grow up.

Whatta bunch of bs..he's had plenty of chances. Unfortunately, he will most likely buy his way out of jail. He's a punk and looks like he will always be a punk.
