Chris Brown: Keeping it Real Means Keeping it Quiet
Chris Brown has to be violent - it's the only way to release all the positive love he's forced to carry around.
“I didn’t try to hurt anyone,” Brown continued. “I just wanted to release the anger that I had inside me. . . . I felt like I worked so hard for this music, and I love my fans, and I love to be able to make positive music that I felt like people kept just trying to take it away from me. So, yes, I got very emotional. And I apologize for acting like that.”
Brown, sounding alot like a Democratic pol with his coded, compassion housed talking style, says he's all love and good vibe if the media does what it's told. The blame here, he claims, goes to ABC for daring to go off script.
“When I do shows or when I do interviews, we always send out . . . a talking points sheet,” Brown explained to the BET audience. “And if the network or whoever isn’t complying with what we want to do — so we can equally accomplish a goal — we usually kind of back out and wait until it’s a better situation.”
“We, as a movement, move as positive people. We love everybody. Us, as a generation of kid and adults, we need to take a stand and be more positive and kind of focus on the real issues in life, and the real positive side of things,” he said.
Keeping it real means keeping it quiet. Kudos to Roberts for asking Chris about his violent nature, a line of inquiry that was so well targeted that it prompted a new violent rage. But ABC shouldn't be gleeful in its desire to face another smackdown.
“It’s time to move on,” Roberts agreed Thursday morning. “We wish him the absolute best, and this, too, shall pass.”
Hopefully, so will Chris Brown.
