The Chris Brown Fiasco on Good Morning America

Read Time:1 Minute, 39 Second

Much has been said about the behavior R & B Singer Chris Brown displayed following an appearance on Good Morning America.

I did not see the interview but based on what I’ve read and a clip I saw AFTER the fact I have to say, as a media trainer, that somebody other than Chris Brown screwed up.  That’s right.  I believe somebody either dropped the ball or crossed the line that ultimately led to the latest tabloid frenzy involving Brown.

Here’s my take:  When a talk show host wants to interview a celebrity, it is up to the Publicist to make sure details are worked out and things go smoothly.  Now, I’m not saying Tammy Brook didn’t do her job but I do know she had a responsibility as his Publicist to have his interview questions pre-screened with a clear understanding to the Host as to what Chris would or will not answer.  He was apparently there to promote his album and not to be interrogated about what happened in the past with Rhianna.

On the other hand, if Robin Roberts had been advised that she was not to ask any questions about the Rhianna situation, she should’ve respected that.  Even if she asked one question, she should’ve backed off when it became clear that he did not want to be subjected to that line of questioning.

In a statement released by the now former Publicist, she said, “I am an entertainment/music publicist and was hired as a publicist, as they often are, to work specifically on his music publicity for the term up to the release of Chris Brown’s ‘F.A.M.E.’ album, which was released on Tuesday, March 22, and is entering the Billboard and iTunes charts at No. 1 this week.”

Based on the little clip I did see of the interview on GMA, I don’t believe a Publicist is what Brown needs.  He needs his mama—a hairdresser and prayer.

  1. I believe he’s a punk whose anger management classes obviously didn’t work. I saw the follow up on Good Morning America where they said that not only was there no pre-interview conditions made but that they wouldn’t have agreed to them anyway.

    Here’s the thing. He did it, there are pictures, and he’s going to have to live with it the rest of his career. Have you noticed how he’s thugged himself up with tattoos since the initial event occurred? Doesn’t seem like such a contrite innocent kid to me. It will eventually ruin his career; the only thing I was sad about is that his album went to #1.

  2. “A punk” really? I certainly wouldn’t go that far Mitch. I think he has gotten terrible management/PR advice. He’s trying to fit into a bad boy image which he probably thinks is needed to sell more records. I do remember him when he first came onto the music scene. He was a clean cut young man who just sang good music. Now, he’s forever tarnished because of bad decisions.

  3. I go that far because it seems his reactions to everything are to strike physically first and then apologize later. We both know that what we know about the Rihanna situation that he got arrested for wasn’t the first time he’d hit her, and it’s probable that he’s hit other women and people because of that anger issue. That’s the punk part, feeling as though you have the right to physically attack anyone, no matter who you are.

    The clean cut thing just proved it was a facade; the media can tell us anything, but one has to prove they’re worthy at some point, and to date, he’s failing in my eyes.
