Last month Rihanna told Diane Sawyer about getting beaten by Chris Brown in February, and now it's Brown's turn to sit down with ABC. 'Good Morning America' aired a preview of his '20/20' interview with Robin Roberts.

"I never ever had problems with anger. No, no domestic violence with any of my past girlfriends," Brown said. "I never was that kind of person. I look at it, and it's really, like really difficult. It's like, 'How could I be that person?'"

Roberts shows Brown a clip of Rihanna describing how he had "no soul in his eyes" while beating her and questions the sincerity of his remorse.

"People see me smiling and kind of nonchalantly giving answers," Brown said. "I'm like, really hurting inside. It's like, really devastating for me."

Brown's full interview will air on ABC's '20/20' Friday at 10 pm.
