Even though the restraining order Rihanna filed against Brown was recently relaxed by a judge, Brown is still serving five years probation, and recently completed court-mandated domestic violence classes and 180 hours of community service.
Brown further characterizes his attack on Rihanna as a "mishap," and thanks those who stuck by him through the media firestorm.
"The last two years, everybody dissed me," Brown says. "But my fans were so dedicated. The way I look at it is, you can't walk around mad, because then you just prove everybody right that you're an angry person."
The singer's fourth album, "F.A.M.E." will be released on March 22nd.
