Chris Brown is unsure about his image

NEW YORK (AP) - November 5, 2009

Brown beat up his ex-girlfriend in February and is on probation for the assault.

In an interview with MTV News, the 20-year-old says he's "confused" about his public image. He says that he thinks his fans "love me and support me." But he acknowledges there are people "that don't want to see me do anything ... they wanna see me kind of, basically in jail."

He also says he's trying to get past the scandal and learn from his mistakes.

"Chris Brown: The Interview," premieres on Friday - the same day Rihanna's interview airs on "20/20."

The entertainer will release his third album, "Graffiti," on Dec. 8.
