Chris Brown: I Was ‘Arrogant and Hotheaded’ at the Time of the Rihanna ‘Incident’

Chris Brown continues his media tour for his upcoming album X, so, naturally, his relationship with on-again girlfriend Rihanna is getting brought up (since, you know, they are back together after he beat her in 2009).

“I just tried my best to be the best man I could be over the years and just show her how remorseful and sorry I was for the incident," Brown said on KIIS FM's "On Air With Ryan Seacrest" on Tuesday. "That time was probably the worst part of my life and being that she has [forgiven me] and she’s a wonderful person, I’m eternally grateful and thankful.”

The "Don't Wake Me Up" singer added they are in a better place now.

“It’s still like we’re kids," the 23-year-old continued. "I try not to be too grown and be like, ‘Lets have candlelight dinner every night.’ I try to make sure everything is fun. It has to be fun and it has to be genuine.”

So, regarding that "incident" four years ago with the "Diamonds" singer, Seacrest asked Brown if youth was to blame.

“I could put that on my age, but that would just be making an excuse," he replied. "I think for me that at age 18, 19, I was capable of writing and producing songs, so I’m also capable of making the right choices. So I think it’s about a learning process now. Being at that young age, I can tell you I was arrogant and definitely hotheaded. Everybody has a temper, but for me it was not knowing how to control it when I thought I had the world in my hands.”

In case you don't keep up with Brown, his temper hasn't exactly gone away. Just ask Drake, Frank Ocean, or the valet guy at Pinz bowling alley in Studio City, California.

Earlier this month there was video of Brown screaming at a parking attendant for overcharging him.

“Okay, so I can elaborate on the situation," Brown explained to Seacrest. "By all means, I’m a great tipper. Ten dollars is not a problem … [it] was five dollar parking at the place … but before we went in, I gave the man $100 dollars. We had two cars. It’s five dollar parking. Okay, do the math. So when we came out he was like, ‘You know what? We need $20 for each car.’ And I said, ‘Sir, I just gave you $100.’ So he was like, ‘No, no we need $10.’ So he was just going around trying to see if he could get more money and I was like, ‘no,’ so by that time it was a situation.”

So, there you have it, then?
