The music world has been buzzing over singer Chris Brown’s violent behavior this week. He made national headlines for throwing a chair through a window at Good Morning America’s Studio, while visiting ABC to promote his current album F.A.M.E. As it was reported on Tuesday, Brown became agitated when he was repeatedly asked about his 2009 assault on his ex girlfriend, pop singer Rihanna. Brown later explained his anger to BET’s 106 And Park. “When the interview proceeded, I was thrown off,” Brown told “106 & Park”. “I felt like, OK, they told us this to get us on the show and exploit me. I took it very, very hard.”
“I kept my composure throughout the whole interview…And when I got back, I just let off, like, steam in the back. I didn’t physically hurt anyone. I just wanted to release the anger inside me. I felt like I worked so hard for this music.”
Well, it appears that this attention has proven to be a double edged sward for Brown. Billboard has reported that Brown is expected to have the first number 1 album of his career when the chart is published next week. Unfortunately, after taking the last two years to try and rebuild his public image, this incident has obviously been a huge step back. Chatter and speculation about Brown’s temper and personal stability is bound to increase, but this time he wont have as much help as before. It was just announced today, that he and his independent publicist, Tammy Brook, have parted ways. One can’t help but wonder if that is an indicator of deeper yet to be publicized. It will be interesting to see how he handles the pressure of the public scrutiny in the further aftermath of this.
