Chris Brown has Violent Outburst After 'Good Morning America' Interview

Singer was angry that he was asked about domestic violence incident with Rihanna

March 22, 2011 11:45 AM ET

According to TMZ, a shirtless Chris Brown stormed out of  the Good Morning America studio earlier today after a tantrum that resulted in the singer screaming at the show's producers and breaking a glass window in his dressing room. Brown was outraged because GMA host Robin Roberts asked him questions about his domestic violence incident with Rihanna instead of focusing entirely on his new album F.A.M.E.

In this clip from the show, Brown attempts to shake off Roberts' questions about Rihanna relaxing her restraining order against him by saying that "it's not really a big deal" to him, and that he wants people to focus on his album rather than "stuff that happened two years ago."

Shortly after the meltdown backstage at Good Morning America, Brown tweeted "I'm so over people bringing this past shit up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for there bullshit." That tweet has since been deleted from Brown's Twitter page, though a subsequent tweet proclaiming "All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!!" remains.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
