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.


Girls its o.k to hit a man now! you girls are protected by law, if any man dears to touch you, they will go to jail or be shot! so please slap your men around, insult them, vandalize their property, embarrass them in public, you will get away with it. In fact, Stab Breezy, put him in jail, end his career or shoot him just to be sure & bring his blood to these haterz to drink, hopefully, that should end the wars in Iraq, end poverty in Africa, reduce rape and murder on the streets, prevent global warming, end racism etc DO YOURSELVES A FAVOUR & BUY F.A.M.E THATS THE 1ST STEP IN YOUR LONG JOURNEY OF EMOTIONAL SANITY.


@ds and team me you guys chris brown so much you read an article about him right.after two years you guys are still bitter.rihanna father has even forgiven.if you were not with them that day then you cant say shit about what happened.i thank God chris has dedicated fan that nothing said about him now can change the fact that he is blessed.


i don't think he needs to keep saying sorry for something that happed two years ago people need to get over it it's dum i notice
that when charle sheen put a knife to his wife throat how come nobodys angry with him i really don't understand that but people need leave him alone hes doing good so stop trying to pull him down.


And team me, don't give me that crap about not strong enough to defend herself. Even if a girl hits you, you should find a way to get out of the situation. Not for any moral reason but because you'll get in trouble. It makes me boil to see girls hit their boyfriends knowing that the guys won't hit them back. Being in a car, I dunno how chris coulda of walken away but he literally went apeshit overboard. Shoulda just stop the car and tryna restrain her. And to the people who say where does it say rihanna hit chris. Trust me. I'm from virginia and I know ppl in barbados...and rihanna infact did hit Chris first and your. An idiot to believe that chris did all that just cuz of a silly txt msg. Ya probably haven't. Read of the time when rihanna slapped chris in front of everyone and chris had to push her agains the wall and tell her to calm down. She is a firecracker!!!


Guys don't praise these people they are the ones that speculated without reading the article how is this journalism? I do however atleast give em credit for atleast writing a contraction even though the title is misleading. Chris bRown didn't clarify shit, y'all just f-d up and made shit up Hollywood gossip. Bloggers are useless agenda-driven liars. Equivalent to Fox News....and oh yea I have two sisters and if a man was to hit em I would be mad as shit at first no question. But if I legitamately saw how sorry he was and I learned that my sister had laid hands on him first. Then I would have a long talk with him and begin the process to forgive, just like rihanna and her parents did with chris brown. Don't believe me look it up. Plus the dude took 52 domestic violence classes!!! Man he's good in my book. I don't think hell ever touch a female in the wrong way again.


The people saying they hate him and will never forgive Chris probably never supported him in the first place so you WON'T be missed! Keep your head up Chris!


Thank you Team Me. You seem to get it...


@DS you must have sat right at the back sit of the car & saw exactly what happened. Anyways, get help i have no time for 10 year olds. @shannon if you are looking for a scape goat for men that abuse their wives, you haven't found one, not a child like chris please have some shame.


A bunch of kids posting....the best part is not all the calls about 'moving on', but the way most of you try and minimize what he did because you're fans. Pathetic.


@Ds:my honest opinion abt u?I think u ar jst a lonely are so filled with hate its annoying.even Ri has moved on so dnt be the last on hating lane,huh!
