(blackmediaSCOOP) Before we get to Chris POST -Interview let’s start with the latest, but it’s tempting to start with the strippers. LOL. Late Wednesday Chris Brown apologized to ABC on BET. He claims he got angry because the interview went beyond “talking points” his camp submitted, something ABC News denied
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, according to a transcript of his live appearance on BET’s “106 & Park.” “Because I’m disappointed in the way I acted.
“Yes, I got very emotional,” he later added. “And I apologize for acting like that.”
Brown emphasized that he did not hurt anyone backstage at “GMA” but had to release “the anger that I had inside of me.” He grew angry after, he claimed, he was thrown off balance by questions about his domestic abuse incident involving his ex-girlfriend, pop singer Rihanna, in an interview he believed would focus on his new album.
In a prepared statement, ABC News said, “Chris Brown was invited on ‘Good Morning America’ to perform and to be interviewed. There were no talking points offered.”
Brown told BET that he saw the interview differently.
“I felt like, ‘OK, they told us this just so they can get us on the show so they can exploit me.’ You know, that’s what I thought,” Brown told BET. “I kind of took it very, very hard. 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.
ABC says they are NOT pressing charges against Chris Brown after his behind the scenes outburst on Good Morning America became the talk of the world Tuesday. The singer didn’t let all of the drama kill his fun, he blew off more steam Tuesday by jumping into a pick-up basketball game in Manhattan’s West Village.
Brown stormed out of ABC’s Times Square studios shirtless (looking like a cuter version of Dennis Rodman LOL) after allegedly breaking a window.
“He looked crazed, angry like he wanted to do something to somebody,” says a GMA insider. “I mean he went off. He just walked off the set, ripped off his shirt and went into the room and threw a chair and broke the freaking window.”
So who calmed him down? MOMMA! That’s right. BlackmediaSCOOP has learned that his momma Joyce Hawkins & manager were highly upset at how he handled Robin’s softball questions about Rihanna.
Sources close to Brown tell BMS, “People have to remember that the boy is only 21. So he’ll make mistakes but momma called immediately after hearing the drama and told him to get a grip and remember how hard it was to get back to this spot. Joyce who was not with him at GMA told him that he has to answer the questions because it will never go away. He must control himself she said and turn the negative into a positive”. BMS couldn’t agree more! Now back to the story.
Because cops were not dispatched to the scene he will likely not have his probation revoked – unless police get involved. If ABC pressed charges against the singer, Brown’s probation officer would then become involved – who would then notify the court and the District Attorney. Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray would then decide what action, if any, would need to be taken – possibly revoking his probation and sending him to jail in the worst case scenario.
After the interview and his workout on the courts he hit up Opera Gallery in New York with his new girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
All of the media love and hate helped send Brown’s new album F.A.M.E, to the top downloaded album on Apples’ iTunes store on its first day of release and Amazon.
Robin Roberts wished him nothing but the best TODAY (Wednesday) on her show Good Morning America. Roberts wants him back on the show. What Really Happened. Why are they calling him a thug and not Sheen?
Brown is still due to perform next week on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars”. An ABC insider tells BMS, “look we’d be crazy to tell him no, you know America will be watching because they want to see if he nuts up again. I hope he doesn’t but you never know we’ll just have to wait and see”.
