That didn’t take long. R&B Singer Chris Brown has officially apologized for freaking out on the set of Good Morning America a tantrum that led the singer to smash a large window when asked about his past relationship with Rihanna.
Brown appeared on the show to promote his new album F.A.M.E. however he became angered when show host Robin Roberts almost refused to talk about anything other than his past abusive relationship with Rihanna.
Chris told her:
“This album is what I want them to talk about, not what happened two years ago.”
After leaving the interview, Brown, who just finished an anger management class “flew into a rage” according to an insider, throwing a chair through a window, which thankfully did not hurt anyone below. GMA staffers were so worried about his actions that they reportedly called security.
Brown talked about his tantrum on BET’s 106 & Park Wednesday:
“First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, anybody who was offended or really disappointed in my actions because I was disappointed in the way I acted. A lot of people don’t know what went down. When I do shows or when I do interviews we send out like a talking point sheet. And if the network or whoever isn’t compliant with what we want to do so that we can equally accomplish a goal, we usually kind of back out and wait until it’s a better situation,”
“So when we actually did this event, everything was cool. … Everything that was sent to me was about the album. That’s what we were talking about. So when the interview proceeded, I was thrown off. I felt like, ok, they told us this to get us on the show and exploit me. I took it very, very hard. I kept my composure throughout the whole interview. … And when I got back I just let off steam in the back. I didn’t physically hurt anyone. I just wanted to release the anger inside me. I felt like I worked so hard for this music. … I got very emotional.”
He then went on to tell his fans that it wasn’t Robert’s fault (as if we didn’t know that):
“Do not send any threats, anything like that, I’ve been hearing things on Twitter… We need to take a stand and… focus on the more positive things in life.”
Roberts for her part appeared on the The Gayle King Show and seemed find with the situation, even inviting Brown back to the set of Good Morning America:
“Anytime 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…even right before the interview, I said that to Chris and I was shocked like everybody else was,” Roberts said on the show. “…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.”
