Brown appears on the cover of the September 2014 issue of Billboard magazine. He talks about people talking about him and Rihanna, what he learned in prison, and living life in the public eye.
Not everyone in the world is going to particularly love me. But I’m cool with that. As long as I love myself and my music, I’m fine. People are going to say what they want to say. I don’t look over my shoulder or wish I could turn back the hands of time. Life is a learning experience, so I’m learning as I go. I’m not walking around angry about anything. So you just have to let it be.
