So we’re all aware about the latest Chris Brown outburst on Good Morning America. In case you don’t know, Chris stormed out in a violent tantrum because Robyn Roberts persistently questioned him regarding “the incident”, when really he was there to promote his album. Now Robyn looks like the bad guy because she drove him to that point and wouldn’t let it go. But is it fair to blame her for his antics?
When you are invited on a show for an interview, it’s common sense that you find out what questions are going to be asked. If certain questions are going to be off limits, you need to make it clear before accepting an interview. I find it very hard to believe that Robyn didn’t get permission or make him aware that she’d question him about his dealings with Rihanna, especially since this is his first album after the ordeal.
The title of his album is F.A.M.E. which is an acronym meaning Forgiving All My Enemies. Obviously, the title was inspired by the event that occurred two years ago. Of course she’s going to question him about that night if the album he is there to promote is based upon that. So really HE brought it up. Music is personal. The reason why this album is supposed to be so special is because this would be the most candid, heartfelt, outpouring of emotions that he has ever given. The truth is, as much as you’d like for everyone to just move on, it’s not going to happen. I agree that he should be forgiven, especially when there are people like Charlie Sheen who are doing worse and are praised for their actions. Celebrities do whatever they can to get in the spotlight. They want enough attention to sit on top of the world, forgetting that there truly is a price to fame. He did what he did, and he has to live with the consequences because of who he is. Gotta deal with it buddy. Yeah, it may be annoying because you have a camera in your face. But if it weren’t for your record deals, you would’ve been behind bars and probably suffering even more. You can bounce back a little easier than the average Joe.
My advice to Chris? While you may choose not to share your side of the story of what happened that night, you do have the opportunity to prove yourself remorseful, and that you are learning how to deal with your issues by facing the questions that are brought to you. Notice that I said “learning” and not “learned” because you haven’t which is totally fine. All of us are always learning. But you’d like for us to believe that everything is in the past, peachy keen, you are cured, and this won’t ever happen again. However, storming out screaming, cursing, and throwing objects around, damaging property and possibly hurting bystanders because some one made you mad is only showing that you need full time counseling.I think many times, he makes things more dramatic to make himself look like the victim., possibly also to get any kind of attention since any kind of publicity boosts ratings. This along with the twitter wars is just really proving how immature he is and how he really should take a break to get himself together. I think a year, SIX MONTHS, even away from Hollywood is what he needs. Aspen, Alaska, or a European country side for reflection and meditation is good. We all know you got it in you. Talent like your is rare today. We really do want you around.
