Oh Chris Breezy, how I regret what I said in my last article. As most of you now know, yesterday on Good Morning America Chris Brown appeared to promote his new album F.A.M.E. After he performed, he was interviewed by Robin Roberts who asked him repeatedly about the major incident with Rihanna two years ago. Chris kept trying to dodge the questions and focus on the interview, which from my POV was a good thing to do, because he has recently said that he is sick of talking about it. After the interview, he stormed backstage, got angry, broke a window and stormed out of the set, with no shirt on. He took to twitter and claimed something along the lines of that he can’t stand the haters and all of it. That is pretty much the short version of everything that took place.
Ugh. I feel like everytime he takes one step forward he then takes about ten leaps backwards. The verbal flipping out I get because he’s been asked this nonstop, but at the same time it is something he will always be remembered for so it’s sort of hard to look past it. To break a window though is just ridiculous. Didn’t he go to anger management for quite some time? This could easily send him back to court where it could be worse for the embattled R&B star. Granted, last time I checked his new album was number one on ITunes but I mean come on that is just beyond to do something like that. Also, Robin Roberts said he approved her to ask those questions, so why a quick turnaround? Is he really trying to stir up this much attention to get people to buy his albums?
This is the third public incident that has affected his career very negatively. First Rihanna, then a twitter war with Raz-B from B2K which he used a homophobic slur, and now this. It is such a 180 from when he started off back in 2005, and when I say I’m retracting what I said in the last article what I mean is that I’m really having a very rough time being this guy’s fan anymore. Yes he still has legions of fans out there, but I’m looking at this from a bigger picture. Punch a pillow, not break a window. It shouldn’t have to come to this. And of all people, Robin Roberts who is a fantastic interviewer and has been through a great deal in her life with cancer and whatnot, he really shouldn’t have acted that way.
I’m sure his album will still debut high, maybe even at number one, so good for him on that. This whole thing though was way over the line. I really hope in the future that he just chills out and enjoys that after all of this he still has a ton of people who like him. I’m still trying to be one, so I hope for no more outbursts from this talented guy.
