With his sixth studio album 11 days away, Chris Brown lands the cover of the upcoming issue of Billboard Magazine. Brown spoke with the magazine hours after a probation progress report hearing in Los Angeles. To preview the cover story, which drops tomorrow, Billboard shared a statement the singer gave them in the wake of his VMAs pre-party, where Suge Knight and two others were shot. Brown said:
"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. 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."
