ABC has taped an interview Chris Brown for 20/20, according to the AP. GMA anchor Robin Roberts conducted the interview, which is scheduled to air Dec. 11. Yes, Brown does indeed have a new album coming out right around then.

Last week on the Music Mix, we wondered if Chris Brown’s career rehab was working — and the answer seemed to be a tentative yes. I guess it makes sense that 20/20 would be on his image rehab tour, but I wonder if there’s actually anything Brown could do or say that would alter the public perception at this point. Are there really people whose minds could conceivably be changed by an interview?

I seriously doubt it, PopWatchers, but maybe you feel differently: Could a candid interview affect how you feel about Chris Brown — or change how likely you’d be to buy one of his albums?
