Here we go again: The kinder, gentler Chris Brown hit a serious snag on his road to redemption today by reportedly flipping out on (http://us.lrd.yahoo.com/SIG=132ijm7pi/**http%3A//www.nypost.com/p/news/local/rapper_chris_brown_freaks_out_after_r6BDLMvzaid4O8 ZYNvqkEI) the set of Good Morning America.

Doesn't seem to me that CB ever received any help for his anger and control problems. He has to learn you can't strike people or property when things don't go your way. He is extremely arrogant! JMO.

One of the later news clips said all questions were pre-approved. Maybe he just needed some attention cuz his new release wasn't already selling fast enough... :loser:

I saw the interview on GMA this morning and was aghast at his attitude. Robin Roberts is always respectful even when asking difficult questions, but Brown was really curt with her and quite full of himself. It was obvious he hadn't learned his lesson.

Word is that ABC is still planning for him to appear on an upcoming Dancing With The Stars episode. Way to send a great message, corporate bigwigs. :rolleyes:

I havent sorted this one out yet-she gave him the question list ahead of time. Which sort of negates his "I was blindsided" argument. I was tempted to believe the blindsided thing until I saw who interviewed him...so I wonder if this was true rage or an attempt at publicity to push his album sales? I wonder if the sales have been weak?

Remember the petitions when Nickelodeon was going to have him appear at Kids Choice awards shortly after he beat her? Sounds like it is time for another one to go around...

What struck me about this latest incident is that the interviewer was a female.

The questions were reportedly approved prior to the interview but this young man threw a temper tantrum after being interviewed by a female and asked questions about his having beat another female.

IMHO it's about females not just anger issues.

I'm beginning to wonder just exactly how misogynistic he is deep in his core.

Chris Brown is a women beating, angry jerk. However, I do have to speak on the double standard i've seen and read. Charlie Sheen has trashed hotel rooms, done drugs, shot his ex-wife, threatned to kill an ex or 2, and all of the sudden he is applauded like he is the second coming of jesus. Yet, I've heard chris brown called all kinds of things. I just dont get it.

Like Charlie Sheen, he is going to get away with it since ABC declined to file a police report.

This is the part I dont get.

This deeply disturbed me this week:

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2011/03/23/slams-maher-sarah-palin-insult-chides-media-asking/?test=faces

First article I could find but that thing that disturbed me was the use of a slur against a female by another celebrity and yet not much of an uproar about it.

It's not who it was used against it was the fact that we are now into the second decade of the 2000's and a woman can be summarily dismissed and denegrated by a slur that represents a female body part. Disturbing to me on so many levels, but especially as not only a female but a Mother to 3 young ladies.

Sheen is just as misogynistic as Brown as Maher. It just shows exactly how pervasive this way of thinking is in our culture.

As an aside, we see a lot of thinly veiled hatred for women in literature and the arts of the past eras. It's argued that Hemingway was a misogynist in his personal life but I tend to think that some of that was just because he was a man of his era.

But we are currently well into this era and we still have men think it's appropriate to publically call a woman a slur when he disagrees with her?

We have a middle aged celebrity that behaves abysmally towards women (sheen).

We have a young man who beats women down, rages after being called on the carpet by a woman and yet we reward all of them by listening to their music, watching them perform (acting and comedy). I'm as guilty as the next person too.

Disgusts me and shows me that we really haven't come as far as I would like to have thought we have. I'm getting older but my Daughters have to live with this crap. Grrr.

Your points are well-taken, Kat, but I do want to say that men are also often summarily dismissed and denigrated by slurs that represent male body parts (tool, dick, prick,etc...).

The issue you speak of certainly seems to cross gender lines, imho.

As far as Brown goes - I hope he can find some peace with his process or else he's going to keep acting like a bozo.

I agree SCM. I thought of that too as I typed that out but didn't address it. It's a crying shame we are still playing that game with either gender at this point in time in history.

Want to know something even more scary?

My middle daughter is in HS and she came home today and was talking to me about this and that and we had the TV on in the room with us and a clip covering Brown came on (I think it might have been TMZ or ET something to that effect).

And she said OMG Mom you won't believe this but you know how CB is beats women up and is so creepy ---(keep in mind she's a teen :)) she said that a lot of the girls at the school thought it made him more sexy because he was edgy and kind of dangerous.

She was like WTH and I was like WTF? Thank goodness my daughter sees that behavior for what it is...yikes.

Sorry for the OT thought I'd share what some of her peers think about this...I'm still shaking my head.

Being attracted to "the bad boy" is very common for us women - especially in adolescence when we are still so stupid! It's great that your daughter has enough wisdom at her age to sense that the Chris Browns of this world are creepy!

Sorry for the off topic as well but after having a discussion with co-worker (she is almost 30) I came here looking to see if it was JUST ME who was so disgusted with CB's arrogance on the interview!! What an ANGRY young man!! wow.....and co-worker had nothing but bad things to say about RR! She said RR was harassing him and should have known better than to bring up something EVERYONE knows he is embarrassed about! WTH???? :banghead: What about Rhianna's embarrassment?? I will probably never be a fan of CB....as a victim of domestic violence I have a hard time beleiving the spots will change if you KWIM! again sorry if I am off topic!!

I agreed with NOW's response to FOX. This happens so frequently that they would constantly be responding to "What do you think of what he said?" questions. It is obvious what NOW thinks about such remark.
I, myself, give Ernest Hemingway no breaks for his era. If I did, I would have to give breaks to the young punks of today who hear slurs against women constantly in the media. Anyone with intelligence knows it is hateful. Bill Maher just made my idiot list.

I guess we should keep in mind that ABC is the network that paid $200k to Casey Anthony for her baby's pictures. Takes one to know one?

NEW YORK Chris Brown apologized for his destructive tantrum at "Good Morning America" earlier this week, explaining that he was surprised that his attack on Rihanna was brought up during his interview and needed to "let out steam" after getting upset.

I know....I am a hard sell.....BUT I didn't see surprise and I ain't buying... To me he was already angry and just waiting for RR to "mess up" and push him too far ( in his mind...justified for acting anyway he CHOOSES...although he would say he can't stop or even help it!) all MOO!

He's an abuser and that's it... I don't think he changed and I don't buy his apology. He has not learned his lesson. That is all I have to add, except he will walk away from this without a dent on him. What a shame.

russell Simmons (I think I have his name correct) was giving an interview (my keyboard is doing some very strange things so if this posts messed up I apologize) about C. Brown and this latest incident and I only caught the end of the interview but it appeared to me that Simmons was admonishing the interviewer for not being more kind to Brown? Anyone else see this?

I'm with ya' Gozgals. This is the excuse batterers often give: "I'm sorry honey but you pushed me too far! You made me so angry!" They act like their temper is a thing they cannot control, something separate from themselves with a power of its own so they cannot be blamed. But, anyone who "pushes" them too far can be.

Lesson learned from this is that this young man learned well from his mother's abuser about how to be a man and he needs intensive, regular intervention from specialists who deal with rage before he has a chance of unlearning what he was taught. This will take years. Very sad.

Good. I note that while Brown states his fans should send nastygrams to Roberts, his tone and the way he said it as well as his expressed "disappointment" in the way he acted the reasons why he did what he did, again seem to imply that someone else was at fault (Roberts) and that while he didn't handle it perfectly, he is not entirely to blame. Ick. This guy is a long, long way from changing for the better. His career should take a nose dive until he makes an honest attempt at change.

So we reward truly sh**** behavior in our society?? You beat women and then you act like a complete loon when someone calls you out on that fact and that is to be respected and admired?? We truly do live in a society that devalues women on a consistent basis. Shame on ABC!!

I agree with you 100% Nancy...he really turns my stomach and it will be only a matter of time before he gets the sh** knocked out of him.
Why does society applaud this behavior?The only thing I will applaud is when Chris Brown gets the pi** knocked out of him,damn sissy!
