Chris Brown appeared on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday (March 22) to promote his new album, F.A.M.E. While he may have only wanted to talk about his new music, host Robin Roberts decided to bring up his 2009 assault of Rihanna and its resulting consequences several times during the interview.
Roberts asked about the stay-away order that had been lifted to allow Brown and Rihanna to be at the same events. “It’s not really a big deal to me now. … I think I’m past that in my life and today’s the album day,” he said, steering the conversation back to his music.
They went on to discuss the album’s title, which he says stands for both “Forgiving All My Enemies” and “Fans Are My Everything.”
“Fans are my everything,” he reiterated, “being able to go through everything I went through and show my fans that I love them.”
Roberts asked who the “enemies” in the title are. “Just anybody, naysayers, haters,” he said. “I just think being positive and promoting it is what I’m about now.”
He added that he is “focusing on this album. Definitely, this album is what I want them to talk about and not stuff that happened two years ago.”
According to TMZ, Roberts’ line of questioning angered Brown so much that he had an outburst in his green room after the interview wrapped. Sources reportedly told the site that he began shouting very loudly in his dressing room, causing hair and makeup staffers to call security. He allegedly broke a window causing glass to shatter onto the street level below. ABC security told TMZ that the window was broken by a chair.
By the time security got to the room, Brown had taken his off his shirt and left the building after getting in a producer’s face. Glass workers have reportedly already fixed the window. A rep for the show had not responded to MTV News’ request for comment as of press time.
He didn’t directly comment on the incident, but Brown tweeted and then quickly took down the following tweet: “I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t.” He replaced that post with a new one that reads, “All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I’m so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!! Thank you to everyone who supports my music!!! Key Word ( music) !!! Love y’all.”
