Chris Brown apologizes on BET for 'Good Morning America' freakout
Just for the record, since we noted ABC News won't be pressing charges against Chris Brown, the performer apologized on BET's 106 & Park on Tuesday for blowing up after a softball interview by Robin Roberts on Good Morning America led to questions he doesn't like answering. Like, is life tough after you beat the crap out of your ex-girlfriend, Rihanna?
"First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really looked, and (was) disappointed at my actions," Brown said, according to ABC News. "Because I'm disappointed in the way I acted. Yes, I got very emotional. And I apologize for acting like that."
But he had good reason, don'tcha know: "I felt like, 'Okay, they told us this just so they can get us on the show so they can exploit me.' You know, that's what I thought," he went on. "I kind of took it very, very hard. And I kept my composure throughout the interview, although you could see me upset, you know. I kept my composure and did my performances, and when I got back, I just let off, like, steam in the back."
So there you have it: He was angry, so he trashed his dressing room and broke a window with a chair because he wasn't happy being asked one of the questions Roberts says she cleared with him, about the one incident he is now infamous for.
"Any time we have a guest here on the program, we let them know ahead of time the subject matter, the topics that we're going to discuss and we, even right before the interview, I said that to Chris and I was shocked like everybody else was," Roberts said Thursday on GMA. "We wish him the absolute best and ... we've extended the invitation to him and I sure hope that he takes us up on it, because we'd love to have another chat with him."
Just be sure to nail down everything in the dressing room, lest it end up down in Times Square.
