Chris Brown to "Come Clean" About Rihanna on ABC

by at . Comments

As we reported on Thanksgiving, ABC has come under fire for lining up a sit-down with Chris Brown right after nixing an appearance by Adam Lambert.

Likely to diffuse any talk of a double standard, ABC announced that Brown will not perform on the network, and that the interview will be hard-hitting.

The beleaguered R&B star will supposedly "come clean" about Rihanna.

After dodging questions about the infamous beat-down in interviews with everyone from Larry King to Wendy Williams, the "Crawl" singer is set to divulge details of the incident in an interview with Robin Roberts on 20/20 December 11.  

It's being billed as his "chance to respond" to Rihanna's interviews ...

Does Chris Brown deserve a forum to talk about Rihanna?

The 20-year-old, whose new album Graffiti debuts December 8, will only answer questions in the pre-taped interview and will not promote the album.

Chris Brown's TV interrogation comes just a month after Rihanna's revealing 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer, which aired on the November 5.

Rihanna talked about the assault in graphic detail, admitting that she was "embarrassed" that she still had feelings for Brown after the incident.

Brown said he respected her right to talk about the incident but wished she had kept it quiet. Will he finally tell his unedited version of events?

In any case, Brown has been laying relatively low, performing community labor as a part of his assault sentence, and focusing on his music.

CHRIS BROWN DESERVES THE HATE HE IS GETTING AND WILL GET MORE OF AFTER THIS INTERVIEW. HE IS A HYPOCRITE OF THE HIGHEST ORDER!!!!!!!!!
HE SAID RIHANNA SHOULD SHUT HER MOUTH ABOUT THE DETAILS AFTER HER INTERVIEW AND THEN HE COPIES HER AND GOES TO THE SAME NETWORK FOR A SIT-DOWN? NOT ONLY IS HE A HYPOCRITE, BUT HE'S A COPYCAT....NOT TO MENTION A WOMAN-BEATER. AND IS HAS NOT DONE A BIT OF WORK ON HIMSELF, EITHER. HE HAS HIS BUDDIES, ASSOCIATES AND FAMILY SLAMMING RIHANNA DAILY ON TWITTER. NONE OF RIHANNA'S PEOPLE HAVE SAID A WORD ABOUT HIM OR STAY ON THE INTERNET DOGGING HIM OUT THE WAY THEY DO HER!!! YOU WOULD THINK HE WAS THE ONE WITH A MOUTH FULL OF BLOOD AND LEFT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD LIKE ROADKILL, NOT RIHANNA!!!! CHRIS IS A COWARD WHO HAS OTHER PEOPLE DO HIS DIRTY WORK TO SLAM RIHANNA AND MOCK EVERYTHING SHE DOES. BUT, HEY, YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW!!

Adam was wrong! Again plain and simple! He wasn't on MTV, he was on public tv! Then to disrespect parents who pay for their children to buy his cd, was low! Since the beginning of tv, parents have allowed their children to stay up and watch special shows. I was disappointed in Adam that I thought he wanted to be known for his talent not being gay. I have been a huge fan of Elton John have been to a concert of his and have his records and never have been offended. However, if you want to be known for your sexual preference instead of your talent, then you have open doors for people to voice their moral opinions. There is a time and place for everything however public tv during a special wasn't the time or place for a new artist to try and shock people what he did has been done over and over and people are tired and bored! Adam didn't do anything new just show that he/Adam doesn't have class.

Chris was wrong! However he is paying his due for his crime! People like Ted Kennedy was elected over and over to office and he killed a woman left her to drown and didn't go back to the next day because he was drunk! Clinton lied under oath! Yet you want a 19 year who has been convicted and paying for his crime to pay forever! When Kennedy and Clinton didn't even pay for an hour! Get real, he made a huge mistake and Chris is paying for it! I hope he will take this and turn his direction around. The anger management class, picking up trash and lost of respect will surely help him remember! Continue to move forward Chris, wish you the best in the future!

Why was it okay for Rhianna to go public, and now it is a problem for Mr. Brown to clear the Air? Didn't quite get this. He very well need to tell all.

the language on this site's comment section is worse than Chris Brown's actions. The person "marie," I assume is a female with a mouth like a man. Forgiveness in this time of the year is an underlying understanding and this young man deserves understanding and a second chance just like anyone else. As for ABC, they have a right to air whomever they wish; I think Adam L. should have had his turn on the show, but based on the AMA performance, I understand a man's face in his genital area may be too much in the morning if they thought the show might be the same. Forgiveness people and use more appropriate language on the web.

Rihanna Quotes

I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.

Rihanna [on rumors that she dated Jay-Z]

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
