From the mind of Witch Hazel | Posted in Brew Quotes, Chris Brown, Rihanna | Posted on 03-22-2011
If you’ve been under a rock, then you missed the news that Chris Brown will soon need to put on his apology bow tie and say he’s sorry for breaking a window in his Good Morning America dressing room this morning. Brownie went apesh*t after GMA host Robin Roberts asked him a couple of questions about the Rihanna “mishap.” (Click here to watch) Robin says Brown’s camp actually pre-approved a few Rihanna questions, but someone must not have sent the Blonde Bombshell that memo because he got steamed during the interview as he tried to deflect focus back to his new album, “F.A.M.E.”
Anywho… in a similar turn of events, Rihanna also doesn’t want to talk about Blondie either. In a recent interview with the UK’s Fabulous magazine, a reporter tried to take her down memory lane and she put the kibosh on that in a snap.
Today, she’s not quite as forthcoming when the subject of Brown is broached. The mere mention of his name prompts a change in atmosphere and a sharp:
When asked again she snaps:
“Next. You obviously want to talk about Chris Brown, I don’t.”
We get it. Neither of these two want to be asked the same questions every time. They want to move the story along. What’s funny is these two really think they’re on that legend level of say, a Diana Ross, where they can shut down interviews before they even begin and have their “people” demand what line of questioning they’ll get. That’s not how the media works. You have to do a dance with the media. You’re using them. They’re using you. If you don’t want to talk about it, don’t do the show. And, don’t have a meltdown when a “hard” question comes your way. I’ve been in Breezy’s comeback corner for awhile, but c’mon son… if you wanted an interview where the host will kiss your hindparts, stick to black radio and BET.
