Writing via Twitter, the singer also touched on his upcoming music video.
"CHRIS BROWN 'CRAWL' VIDEO STILLS & ALBUM COVER+NIKE SPORTSWEAR RIVALRY COLLECTION FEATURING CASSETTE PLAYA & MORE!," he wrote Monday (November 2). "WHO CARES IF MY PANTS R FITTED. its called fashion. IM SO TIRED OF CLOSED MINDED PEOPLE. IM 100% COMFORTABLE WIT MY SEXUALITY.IM A GROWN MAN MY FASHION ISNT LIMITED TO BAGGY AZZ JEANS AND FITTED CAPS.. i did that in 05. CMON son. HATING IS SO LAME.." (Chris Brown's Twitter)
He recently spoke with radio personality Angie Martinez about changing his career goals after seeing the aftermath of his domestic dispute with ex-girlfriend Rihanna last February.
"I was so scared and nervous to be on there," Brown told New York Hot 97's Martinez about being on "Larry King Live." "I didn't know what to do...I couldn't really be myself and get people to understand who I was...I had to kinda say what I wanted to say but I had to kinda think about what I wanted to say because I was already being so criticized so much at that point...Even if I went on the Larry King interview and said everything that I wanted to hear, it would still not be good enough...That's why I focus on my music. I'm dealing with what's going on in my life, my personal life but I think my gift to the world is inspiring kids and inspiring people with my music from now on...I feel like the underdog -- I had to prove myself in the beginning."

Performing at New Jersey's annual "Powerhouse" concert last month, Brown told fans he appreciated their support.
Brown finally spent some time speaking to the audience after they sang Jordin Sparks' parts on "No Air." "Despite my past and stuff like that, I appreciate all of y'all," he said. His words were barely audible because of the cheering. The singer also promised to be a better man. "How long we gonna do this for? We gonna do this forever!" he also promised. Of course, "Forever" closed the show. (MTV)
Graffiti is due in stores Tuesday, December 15th.
