Chris Brown has apologized to Rihanna (VIDEO)

Chris Brown has apologized to his one-time girlfriend Rihanna in a two-minute video
released by his record label Monday.
At the start of the statement, Chris Brown says he was told by his lawyers to keep quiet
until his legal case was settled. He goes on to say,
“I’ve told Rihanna countless times and I’m telling you today, I’m truly, truly sorry
that I wasn’t able to handle the situation both differently and better.”

On June 22, Chris Brown pled guilty to the charge of felony assault for an altercation in February which left Rihanna battered and bruised. Brown must complete six months of community service in his home state of Virginia. And he is serving five years on supervised probation with quarterly California court visits and must complete a domestic violence counseling program.

Brown and Rihanna were the top male and female pop singles artists in America last year and both were nominated for multiple Grammy Awards, even facing off for the second year in a row in a collaboration category. Their relationship ended just hours before the Grammys Awards ceremony.

The pair had spent the preceding evening together at the star-studded party thrown annually by recording executive Clive Davis. Then early Sunday morning, Brown assaulted Rihanna as they drove home. Brown canceled his appearance on that night’s kudocast where he was scheduled to perform “Forever.”

The Grammy Award – the music industry’s highest honor – has eluded Brown. Last year, Rihanna and Jay-Z won the best rap/sung collaboration Grammy for “Umbrella” over, among others, Brown and T-Pain for “Kiss Kiss.” This year, they competed against each other for the pop vocal collaboration Grammy. Brown and Jordin Sparks were nominated for “No Air” while Rihanna and Maroon 5 were up for “If I Never See Your Face Again.” Both duos lost to the night’s big winners Robert Plant and Allison Kraus for “Rich Woman.”

Brown remains a Grammy loser despite five nominations. Besides those two collaboration defeats, he also lost R&B male vocal for “Take You Down” to Ne-Yo (“Miss Independent”) this year while last year he also lost best contemporary R&B album for his self-titled debut to Ne-Yo (“Because of You”) as well as best new artist to Carrie Underwood.

Now tinged by scandal, can Brown ever win with the Grammys? The recording academy represents the more conservative wing of the music industry. As such, it doesn’t like to give awards to people who reflect poorly upon the profession. An antiestablishment spirit is tolerated in certain genres – such as rap and rock – and sometimes even celebrated, because edginess drives mass music sales. (LATimes)
