Chris tells ‘Billboard’ magazine he just wants to move forward with his life, following the shooting that took place at a VMA pre-party he hosted at 1OAK nightclub on Aug. 23. Find out what else he said about the scary incident.
Chris Brown recently talked to Billboard magazine about his past in his first official post-jail interview. Ironically, after his interview took place, the 25-year-old was at the center of a horrific incident when the former CEO of Death Row Records, Suge Knight, was shot six times during Chris’ VMA pre-party in Hollywood on Aug. 23. Following the shooting, Chris reached back out to the magazine to give an exclusive statement about moving past all the drama.

“I realize that what I do for a living opens my life to public scrutiny and that I have a responsibility to everyone because of that exposure,” Chris told Billboard.
“I can say that I am only human and I have made mistakes. I can say that I try to live my life in the most true, honest way that I can. I am not perfect, no one is. No one is harder on me than me. No one can please everyone. No one can live in the past and expect to grow. I have been moving forward and hope that I am not defined by just a few moments in my life but all of the moments that will make up my life,” he continued.
Suge and two others were reportedly shot during the VMA pre-party. An investigation has since been opened, E! News reports.
“It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes,” Chris tweeted soon after the shooting.
Chris, 25, has a million projects on his plate, including the Sept. 16 release of his new album X, and he’s burying himself in his work in order to keep out of trouble, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“X is all that’s on his mind and he’s excited and real happy that the album is about to drop. That’s keeping his mind occupied,” a source close to Breezy revealed. “All of his energy is there — on his music and career.”
