Chris Brown says he's "eternally grateful and thankful" that Rihanna has forgiven him after he infamously assaulted 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 and the time was probably the worst part of my life," he told Ryan Seacrest Tuesday morning. "Being that she has [forgiven me] and she's a wonderful person, I'm eternally grateful and thankful."

"People are entitled to their opinions," he continued. "I can't go around blaming. Being at that young age, I can tell you I was arrogant and definitely hotheaded."

And while Brown's widely reported anger issues haven't seem to subsided over the last few years, he claims he's a changed man.

 

"I'm cool. I'm happy. I'm focused. I'm a lot calmer," he said. "Everyone has anger issues and days they don't feel like being bothered. Sometimes it comes off the wrong way. I'm learning how to deal with it and how to channel that into my music."

In other Brown news, the singer is readying his upcoming album X.

"X is about life, it's about me," he said. "X is the 24th letter of the alphabet, and I'll be 24 when it comes out. When you see X on a vial, it's like forbidden fruit. For me, it means being able to express myself without a filter, without boundaries."

The album's first single, "Fine China," will drop April 1.

    "Have we forgiven Chris Brown?" I don't believe it is for us as a public to forgive him. I think that is where people got it twisted. That was Rihanna's choice and she choice to forgive him. I get their celebs and are suppose to be held to a higher standard, but at the end of the day they are human. Humans mess up. I can't say I forgive or don't forgive CB cause he didn't hurt me personally. His actions were very bad, but he paid for it. The thing is I believe that one can not ask to be forgiven, whether it's from another person or a higher power, if they can not forgive. Its that simple. Don't go around condemning people, especially ones you don't know, and you aint 100% yourself. Ijs

    There's a difference between being "hotheaded" and "making mistakes" and beating the living daylights out of a woman. Would someone please push him off an overpass into oncoming traffic?

    The best of luck to him/ them. At 18 or 19 and far beyond that age people do tend to do stupid things AND make bad choices. Yes everybody does mess up although some mess ups are way more severe than other's. Dammit- let the now MAN live! Until you yourself has walkec on water, shut the hell up ;)
