Chris Brown doesn't care what the public thinks about him.

Chris Brown says that he’s confident that he’s a “good person,” but isn’t concerned whether the public feels the same way. He spoke about his image during a recent interview with Shannon Sharpe on the former NFL star’s Club Shay Shay podcast. The topic began with Sharpe bringing up the idea of redemption as a celebrity. 

“Yeah, so I smile,” Brown said, when Sharpe mentioned him still being able to make money. “I think people think I have a careless outlook on it. It’s not that I have a careless outlook. It’s that I don’t care to make you believe that I’m a great person or a good person,” he said. From there, he explained that he doesn’t put up with nonsense. “I try to stay in my lane, get outta the way, don’t bother nobody. But I’m not gonna take no nonsense.”

Others defended the controversial singer. ”Everyone in the industry who has worked with Chris loves him. I think that says a lot. Their opinion of him outweigh the opinions of strangers who hate him,” one argued.
