We can't wait to hear ABC explain this one:
The network booted Adam Lambert off Good Morning America this week after he kissed a guy on stage at the American Music Awards.
However, the show is scheduled to air an interview and possible performance by Chris Brown next week, someone convicted of felony assault for beating on Rihanna.
“The network is giving a mixed message,” a source at ABC source told The New York Post. "It doesn’t trust someone who shocked with an unpredictable show and a gay kiss, but then it is happy to go ahead with Chris Brown, who was convicted of felony assault.”
That will especially be true if the show features a performance by Brown. It's one thing to interview him and perhaps shed light on the serious issue of domestic abuse.
But if Brown actually performs songs from his new album, ABC will be giving a convicted woman beater a platform with which to make money and promote his music.
Said another insider at the network:
“Chris Brown’s interview was booked way before Adam Lambert took to the stage. It is to give him a chance to respond to Rihanna’s interview. The possibility of him performing a song will be worked out next week.”
It's unclear why Brown should have a chance to respond to anything. Didn't he forfeit that right when he left his girlfriend a bloody, beaten mess?
