Chris Brown wants the world to know that he's misunderstood. In a new trailer for his upcoming documentary Welcome to My Life, Brown laments about feelings of suicide and his image as a bad boy.

Probably the most interesting thing of note about the three-minute clip, which also brings up his assault of Rihanna and the publicity surrounding it, is the fact that he confesses to having suicidal thoughts in the aftermath. In the clip, Brown says, "I felt like a f—king monster," he said. "I was thinking about suicide and everything else. I wasn't sleeping, I wasn't eating. I just was getting high."


Interestingly enough,  Brown was under fire recently when he said that R&B singer Kehlani's failed suicide attempt was done to get attention. But you know the saying, "Hurt people hurt people."

At the end of the trailer, he has a few words for the world: "If there was ever a doubt in your mind that Chris Brown was done, that he was finished … I wouldn’t bet on it."
