Disgraced R&B star Chris Brown has spoken out about his emotional Michael Jackson tribute at the recent BET Awards, insisting the performance was his "ultimate apology" for letting fans down by attacking former girlfriend Rihanna.

The "Kiss, Kiss" hitmaker was convicted of assault and ordered to stay away from his ex after confessing he beat her during a heated fight on the eve of the 2009 Grammy Awards. He has publicly apologized for his actions online and on TV many times, but he admits the BET Awards nod to Jackson, during which he broke down and sobbed, was the moment his past problems really hit home.

Speaking on TV show "106 & Park" on Tuesday, August 24, Brown said, "When I heard (Jackson song) Man In The Mirror, it just touched me. It wasn't fake. I know people were trying to put extras on it, but everything was genuine. That was my ultimate apology, hands down."

And there was one other thing that made the performance an emotional one: "A lot of people don't know, I was going to see Michael Jackson the day he died. I was on my way to the Staples Center (in Los Angeles) that day."

I really do love chris brown. He is truly a stand up guy. I pray many people now see how much a good guy he really is. Thank the Lord he didn't let hurtful negative people bring him down. If we can forgive Eminem for hurting his wife and making a song about. Then Chris should more than be forgiven.

Yeah but you never cried when you were saying sorry to her... You just want people to feel sorry for you and forgive you, that's why you said at the same day you were back and release your single on iTunes... You think we are stupid or something like that... and your new music talking about Rihanna like she is the one to blame and not you, like you have all the reason... Please guy it's time to grow, you still a kid!!!
