Chris Brown might have been seen apologizing for his actions in a YouTube video months back, but according to the singer he was not himself — or allowed to be so. “I had a week, maybe three days of PR, and they told me, ‘Don’t say this’ and ‘Don’t say it this way, ’cause they’re gonna take it this way,’ ” Brown says of his first public apology and statement. According to the “I Can Transform Ya” singer, the words were there but he was focused not on being genuine but following instructions. “In my head, I wasn’t given a chance to really be me,” Brown told Robin Roberts during a special interview aired Friday, December 4 on ABC’s 20/20. “I was being myself through other people. It was genuinely from me, it just wasn’t projected genuinely.” Moving forward and understanding the result of his actions that he says “scarred” Rihanna, Brown is set to release his third studio album. Due in stores Tuesday, December 8,” “Graffiti” features relatable songs like “So Cold” and “Crawl” and the hit Swizz Beatz and Lil Wayne featured “I Can Transform Ya”.
