Chris Brown Apologizes, But Not Really
After two days of pretending it never even happened, Chris Brown has finally decided to apologize on BET’s 106 & Park last night for losing his shit on Good Morning America and smashing a window in his dressing room. And by apologize, I of course mean go in front of a sympathetic audience and falsely claim GMA ambushed him with questions about Rihanna before essentially saying, “Hey, at least I didn’t beat a woman again.” Via RadarOnline:
“First of all, I just wanna apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, anybody who was offended or really disappointed in my actions, because I was disappointed with the way I acted,” Brown said Wednesday. “A lot of people don’t know what went down, and obviously when I do shows or when I do interviews, we always send out a talking point sheet. As the interview proceeded, it was kinda thrown off. I was thrown off by it.
“I felt like they told us this just so they could get us on the show so they can exploit me. 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.”
Brown continued, “And when I got back [stage] 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.
“So yes, I got very emotional, and I wanna apologize for acting like that.”
I’d honestly respect Chris Brown more if he’d just came right out and said, “Bitch made me do it.” Just wear that shit on your sleeve, so we can all stop pretending you’re some sort of kind, sensitive artist trying to bring music to the world. It’s not like your fans won’t still buy your albums. In fact, at this point, you could give half of them the Rihanna Special and they’d ask for an autograph afterward. So own that shit. Make it yours. Tell the world you’re Chris Brown and hissy fits are your bag, son. “I wants my cookie AND watch SpongeBob or my fists make your face not grow no more.”
