Chris Brown apologizes for 'GMA' meltdown
A day after erupting in his Good Morning America dressing room after host Robin Roberts asked him questions about his 2009 arrest for assaulting Rihanna, Chris Brown explained and apologized for his actions on BET’s 106 & Park. “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,” said Brown. “Because I’m disappointed in the way I acted.” Click below for fuzzy footage of his apology on 106 & Park.
But the singer maintains that GMA mislead him about the topics they would discuss, as he was under the impression that his appearance would strictly be about his new album, F.A.M.E. “I felt like they told us this just so they could get us on the show to exploit me. That’s what I thought. So I kind took it very, very hard,” said Brown. “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 … I just had to release the anger that I had inside me because I felt like I worked so hard for this music.”
ABC News denies there was any such understanding to avoid certain topics, saying in a statement, “Chris Brown was invited on Good Morning America to perform and to be interviewed. There were no talking points offered.”
