Chris Brown apologizes for 'GMA' outburst: 'I just wanted to release the anger'
Well, kinda sorta.
"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 (March 23).
But, he continued:
"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. And when I got back, 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."
After performing a song from his new album on Monday's (March 21) "GMA," Brown allegedly threw a chair through a dressing room window and ripped off his shirt. The reason for his outrage? He was asked (supposedly pre-vetted) questions about Rihanna's relaxation of the restraining order against him and his probation for felony assault.
What do you think? Is the apology enough to put the incident behind him?
