Chris Brown Statement

Many people have seen the 30 second commercial about Chris Brown upcoming interview with Larry King and it has caused people to react all over the place. So much so he has released a statement to clarify things.
In a statement to JustJared.com, the 20-year-old singer said:
“There have been reports on the internet that I didn’t remember what happened that night with Rihanna. I want to try and set things straight. That 30 seconds of the interview they used of me was taken from a one hour interview during which that same question was asked something like 4 or 5 times — and when you look at the entire interview you will see it is not representative of what I said.
“The first four times – or how ever many times it was - I gave the same answer — which was that I didn’t think it was appropriate for me to talk about what happened that night. I said it was not right for me and it really wasn’t fair to Rihanna. The fifth time – or whatever it was – I just misspoke. I was asked, ‘Do you remember doing it?’ and I said, ‘No.’
“Of course I remember what happened. Several times during the interview, my mother said that I came to her right afterwards and told her everything. But it was and still is a blur. And yes, I still can’t believe it happened because it is not me or who I am or is what happened like anything I have ever done before.
“As I have said several times previously, I am ashamed of and sorry for what happened that night and I wish I could relive that moment and change things, but I can’t. I take full responsibility for my actions. What I have to do now is to prove to the world that this was an isolated incident and that is not who I am and I intend to do so by my behavior now and in the future.”
I have to say I didn't think the Larry King show was the type to misrepresent someone. If this is true I'm disappointed. As an interviewer I understand why he asked Chris the question but to repeatedly ask and Chris repeatedly have to say he didn't want to answer and then use a piece of footage after basically Chris was tired of him asking the same thing is corny to me. Hmm
