While R&B star Chris Brown came to ABC’s “Good Morning America” this morning, ready to move on from his past — he pled guilty to assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna two years ago; the restraining order was just “relaxed,” as his interviewer Robin Roberts put it — it was clear that the world hasn’t quite forgiven all his sins. The 22-year-old was on GMA to promote his new album, “F.A.M.E.” (Forgiving All My Enemies), but Roberts kicked off the interview (below) by asking Brown about the easement on the restraining order, claiming it was in response to the Tweets flooding in.
Although Brown managed to keep his cool during this segment, things took a surprising turn after his first scheduled musical performance. According to insiders, once the song finished, he “stormed into his dressing room and started screaming and tearing the room apart.” By the time security arrived, a window in Brown’s dressing room was smashed, and Brown stormed out of the building — with no shirt on.
Following the incident, Brown reportedly posted the following on Twitter: “I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for there [sic] bulls**t.” The post was later removed from Twitter, replaced with a message for his Team Breezy fans: “… This album is for you and only you!!! I’m tired of everyone else!! …”
Brown is still scheduled to perform in the elimination round of “Dancing with the Stars” next week — for now — but it’s more than likely DWTS host Tom Bergeron will skip the probing questions for the live show. Still, Brown’s behavior today left us wondering: has Brown truly moved on from the past? And are we ready to, as well?
