Chris Brown Apologizes For 'Good Morning America' Outburst
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Chris Brown had a bad morning on Tuesday. For that, he's very sorry.
The singer, who let out an emotional outburst backstage after a contentious interview on "Good Morning America," addressed his allegedly violent, window-smashing tirade on the BET music video countdown show, "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," Brown said on the show (via RadarOnline). "Because I'm disappointed in the way I acted."
"I felt like they told us this just so they could get us on the show so they can exploit me," Brown said. "So I took it very, very hard and I really kinda kept my composure throughout the whole interview, although you can see me upset, I kept my composure, I did my performance.
"And when I got back I just let off steam. I didn't physically hurt anyone, I didn't try to hurt anyone, I just wanted to release the anger that I had inside me because I felt that I worked so hard for this music and I felt like people kept just trying to take it away from me."
Brown's outburst came after repeated questioning by co-anchor Robin Roberts about the 2009 incident in which he inflicted a devastating beating on his then-girlfriend, Rihanna.
In a statement that followed the incident, Roberts said that she had a good relationship with Brown, was shocked by his outburst, and invited him back to the show.
Brown's new album, "F.A.M.E," was released this week, and industry insiders don't expect its sales to be hurt by the incident, projecting perhaps 300,000 copies to be moved in its first week. Sales should be buoyed by his top single, "Look At Me Now."
