Chris Brown Clarifies Rihanna "Mishap" Remark

by at . Comments

Chris Brown raised eyebrows - shocker there, we know - with a recent interview in which he said he was done apologizing for attacking Rihanna.

While the point was that he can't just keep saying sorry every minute of every day for life, it was the word "mishap" that the media seized upon.

He put himself in this position with his own actions, but this was somewhat unfair to Brown, who was trying to make a broader point about fame.

In the full interview, it's clear that Chris Brown was trying to express the frustrations and pitfalls of fame in the context of his new album F.A.M.E.

The album title stands for Forgiving All My Enemies and also Fans Are My Everything. The "mishap" he was referring to was no specific event.

Of people who turned their backs on him, or on any person after a negative event in their life, Brown actually sympathized, saying the following:

“You can’t blame people for how they want to be portrayed or if they don’t want to be associated with somebody who had a particular mishap.”

Rather than his beating of Rihanna, Brown was talking in general about how people protect their reputations even at the cost of losing friends.

While you can see why Chris doesn't get the benefit of the doubt, in this case it seems clear that he wasn't trying to downplay what he did.

It seems like daily, there's some rumor, some leaked Chris Brown nude pic or some comment he makes that people fly off the handle over.

We've been critical of Brown in the past, to be sure, but at some point, the guy deserves SOME break in terms of such vitriolic responses.

At least in terms of interpreting his comments, we can all do a little better as far as not twisting them to assume the most negative view.

Haters is such an unintelligent ignorant word. It is called an opinion and when you blog you are ALL HATERS one way or another. Stop trying to bully people because they don't agree with your opinion. My opinion is Chris Brown is an convicted felon and woman abuser. I like some of his music but it has now become very juvenile. The peen pics were atrocious and the media who*ring disgusting. I hope he does better in the future.

I know, like, two Chris Brown songs, whereas I've probably heard most of Rihanna's. Not that it's necessarily fair to compare. But I mean, if it wasn't for what this guy did outside his music, we wouldn't even be talking about him right now. As his new stuff is just about to be released, CB is proof that there's no such thing as bad publicity..!

@Rank: Hate is healthy, please continue hating, you are doing really well. Thank you for leaving your opinions, now go to school and get some education. His fans are all that matter and they have all forgiven him in their millions. but i give it to you, you all are brilliant haters, good job. Like i said, its ok if you wanna go to your grave with a grudge, we just don't wanna know. i bet you couldn't afford his CDs anyways so save your money, you need it more than he does. Did you even read the article? or you just read the comments? cos you didnt address the fairness in the article. You must think we are persuading you to love Breezy looool far from it my dear, please continue to hate, its good for you. See you on his next post, cos i know you will try to come an sell you opinions there as well, yes i see you all over him and his posts loool (undercover fan in denial)
