Chris Brown responds to Australian visa denial

I would be more than grateful to come to Australia to raise awareness about domestic violence.

Singer Chris Brown has taken to Twitter to appeal the Federal government’s decision to deny him a visa, claiming that kids can learn from his "life mistakes" which include smashing up the face of his former girlfriend, Rihanna.
In a series of Tweets sent overnight, Brown said he would be "grateful" to come to Australia to "raise awareness about domestic violence."
He added that his "life mistakes should be a wake up call for everyone.
"Showing the world that mistakes don't define you. Trying to prevent spousal abuse," he said.
"I’m not the pink elephant in the room anymore," he added (no clue what that means.)
Brown says "the youth don't listen to parents nor do they listen to PSA's (that’s public service announcements; he’s got the apostrophe in the wrong spot.).
"The power that we have as Entertainers can change lives," he said.
The Tweets came after a sweet day in court for Brown. PEOPLE magazine reports that he was granted joint custody of his daughter, Royalty, with baby's mother, Nia Guzman.
"Court went great today. Glad this all worked out," Brown, 26, tweeted.
"The court decided that the pair's 15-month-old daughter, Royalty, will share her father's last name and split her time between each parent, with the singer getting 12 days per month," the report says.
PEOPLE says Brown has remained active in the baby girl's life, even naming his next album after her.
"He's also been vocal with his opinion on his responsibility as a father.
"Some men my age run from their responsibility as fathers. I embrace mine. Just sucks that some females use children as meal ticket," Brown tweeted in the midst of the custody battle.
