Singer Chris Brown admitted that he still needs therapy after he assaulted Rihanna Reuters

Chris Brown is gearing up for his X album release, and is leaving no stones unturned to prove that all his bad days are behind him.

The Loyal singer in an interview to MTV News admitted that he still talks to a therapist following the ugly Rihanna assault and also offers a few words of advice to Ray Rice who is suspended from playing indefinitely for Baltimore Ravens after he brutally beat up his wife Janay Rice.

The singer opened up about Rihanna and bravely admitted that he still speaks with his therapist twice a week, and is learning how to better manage his anger, reported Hollywood Life.

He said, \"I think it\'s all about the choices you make. With me, I deal with a lot of anger issues from my past – not knowing how to express myself verbally and at the same time not knowing how to cope with my emotions and deal with them and understand what they are. So I think help is great.\"

Brown confessed that the anger and frustration aren\'t supposed to be sealed inside because bottled up emotions can make one a monster.

He continued, \"I still talk to my therapist twice a week, and it helps me to...if I\'m frustrated and I\'m dealing with something, to vent and say what I\'m going through so I can hear from an actual clinical person, \'this is how you should react,\' or \'it\'s good to feel this way because feelings, emotions, and energy are supposed to come and go.\"

While the X Singer admitted that he and Ray are not very different, he also offered a few suggestions from his personal experience.

\"To Ray, or anybody else,\" he said. \"Because I\'m not better than the next man — I can just say I\'ve been down that road. I deal with situations and I\'ve made my mistakes too, but it\'s all about how you push forward and how you control yourself.\"
