Chris Brown Explodes In Rage, Breaks Window At 'Good Morning America'
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - It was a less than good morning for Chris Brown. The R&B star joined "Good Morning America" co-anchor Robin Roberts for an interview on Tuesday morning, as part of a promotion of his brand new album, F.A.M.E The interview didn't go so well, and TMZ reports that, after a brief performance, Brown went into a rage off stage, shattering a window, perhaps with a chair, and leaving ABC's studio without his shirt, all without completing a second scheduled performance.
During the interview, Roberts jumped right into a number of questions about Brown's 2009 arrest for the savage beating of his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. She mentioned that the restraining order that resulted from the incident had recently been relaxed, to which Brown responded: "I mean, it's not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation, and I think today's the album day, that's what I'm focused on."
When asked what the acronym in the album name stands for, Brown said, "Forgiving all my enemies, and definitely, fans are my everything. That meaning, being able to go through everything I went through and show my fans that I love them."
That opened another opportunity for Roberts to try to bring the beating up, which Brown again preempted by very pointedly emphasizing his album. As the interview ended, Brown emphasized that he couldn't care less what others thought.
For her part, Roberts insists that Brown pre-approved the questions before the interview, TMZ also reports.
Later, ABC News released a statement saying, "As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that's what we did in this interview with Mr. Brown."
