Chris Brown: I Like Being Hated, Makes Life Exciting

Chris Brown seems to be enjoying his negative public perception.

The 24-year-old singer-songwriter took to Twitter before his probation hearing Monday to announce that he enjoyed the hate he was receiving by the public.

"I like being the person everyone hates," Brown tweeted Monday. "Makes life exciting."

The singer's tweet came before he attended a court hearing for a probation review stemming from a 2009 felony where he admitted to physically assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Although Brown said he would stop posting personal messages on his social media accounts, the singer has gone back on his word and has been tweeting about his life issues recently.

"Half of y'all hate the skin you're in. I don't kiss (expletive) for covers or respect," Brown tweeted early Saturday morning. "When u see me speak up!"

The singer ended his rant by speaking about people who may need to humble themselves.

"When people walk with their noses in the air they usually run into shit," he wrote on the social networking website.

For the majority of 2013, Brown gave up control of his social media networks. Last January he let fans know why he no longer wanted to take part in social media.

"Social media takes away the essence of why we are even special or icons," Brown wrote to fans on his Instagram account last January. "So with that, I'm detaching myself from that world."

The entertainer admitted that for him, giving up social media was a logical decision.

"I think it's smarter as an entertainer and as a leader. I have to think logically. When I'm too attainable, it makes me too down," Brown told MTV last March. "Now I express it through my music and through my paintings as well. What I want to talk about comes out, and the beat fills in the rest."
