GMA interviewer Robin Roberts speaks on Chris Brown interview [Video]

Good Morning America interviewer Robin Roberts now speaks on her recent interview with Chris Brown, currently a heated talking point following the R&B star’s reported post-interview rage resulting in a smashed window at ABC studios.

Roberts earlier suggested Brown had agreed to talk about his past on “Good Morning America” Tuesday and was aware that questions would be asked about Rihanna.

“Any time we have a guest here on the program, we let them know ahead of time the subject matter, the topics that we’re going to discuss and we, even right before the interview, I said that to Chris and I was shocked like everybody else was,” Roberts said today on “GMA.” ABC

Watch below.

On March 22 during the promotional run for his new album F.A.M.E., Good Morning America interviewer Robin Roberts repeatedly asked questions about the infamous Rihanna incident, which Chris answered although attempting to revert the focus back to the topic of his album. However, after Robin persisted and despite Chris maintaining his composure on screen, after the interview he reportedly flew into a fit of rage in his dressing room, resulting in him ripping his shirt off and leaving the building after allegedly smashing the window of his dressing room with a chair.

After the incident, he tweeted, “I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t.”

He soon deleted the tweet and added, “All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I’m so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!”

Video of the interview, which led to his outburst:

“This album is what I want them to talk about, not something that happened two years ago”

Brown apologised for the incident on March 24 in an interview on 106 & Park.

Chris is currently on probation for the felony incident regarding Rihanna but according to TheLoop, ABC will not be pressing charges and luckily for Chris, he is not in violation of his probation. TMZ reports the New York Police Department can not investigate the matter because “there is no complaining victim.”

Although it’s fair to say Chris is trying his best to move on and focus on the present not the past, if in fact the reports are true then by now he should be able to display better coping mechanisms on and off camera. The media are ruthless and despite him getting off lightly this time, now instead of celebrating the new album, Chris’ public perception is again under scrutiny. *sad face*
