Chris Brown may have told MTV he wants the details of what happened between he and Rihanna on the night of February 8, to be private, but he doesn't want to brush the episode aside.
In a new interview airing Friday on "The Wendy Williams Show," the host asked the R&B performer what he has to say to those who think he hasn't been acting remorseful.

"The steps that I've taken to show that I'm sorry probably have been perceived wrong…Certain things, when I'm doing certain interviews, and how my posture is to how I'm acting," Chris told Wendy in a clip released on Thursday afternoon.
But while he thinks he is being wrongly perceived, Chris insists he feels sorry for his past actions.

"At the end of the day, I'm definitely remorseful and it's not something that I take lightly or think that it's like under the rug," Chris told Wendy. "I really think it's something that is a serious matter and I'm learning from it."
