Chris Brown feels bad about his temper tantrum at "Good Morning America" earlier this week, and he’s sorry.
During his stop by BET’s "106 and Park" on Wednesday the singer, who just released F.A.M.E., addressed reports of his backstage outburst that resulted in a broken window.
"First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really disappointed in my actions, because I was dissapointed with the way I acted," Chris said.
The singer, who will appear on "Dancing With the Stars" next week as scheduled, said he was really "thrown off" by Robin Roberts’ line of questioning about his fight with Rihanna. He’d been under the impression that the "GMA" appearance on Tuesday was solely about promoting F.A.M.E.
"I felt like they told us that just so they could get us on the show to exploit me. That’s what I thought. So I took it very, very hard," he said. "And I kept my composure throughout the whole interview, although you could see I was upset. I kept my composure and did my performance, and when I got backstage, I just let off, like, steam."
"GMA" viewers, and anyone who has seen the clip of Chris’ chat with Robin, saw that Chris was noticeably uncomfortably with the direction the chat had taken. He had even tried, albeit unsuccessfully, to redirect the interview to focus on F.A.M.E. several times because he wanted to talk about the project he’d been working on for so long.
"I just had to release the anger that I had inside me," Chris said. "I felt like I worked so hard for this music and I felt like people keep trying to take it away from me. So, yes, I got very emotional, and I want to apologize for that."
