Chris Brown reportedly loses it after GMA interview

After an appearance this morning on “Good Morning America” — during which Robin Roberts had the shocking audacity to ask him about the high-profile assault charges that stemmed from his altercation with Rihanna two years ago — Chris Brown apparently lost his cool.

TMZ reports that after his interview with Roberts — who asked perfectly legitimate questions while Brown kept insisting that he was there to focus on his new album — the singer had a screaming fit in his dressing room, tore off his shirt and smashed a glass window. TMZ has photos of a shirtless Brown leaving the building, as well as pics of the shattered glass at ABC’s Times Square studio.

Afterwards, he reportedly tweeted “I’m so over people bringing this past [expletive] up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there [sic] bull [expletive].” (He does kind of have a point there about Sheen.)

He then deleted that tweet and replaced it with this one: “All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I’m so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!”

In keeping with today’s Celebritology trend of posting videos from ABC programs, here’s the Chris Brown interview that precipitated his alleged temper tantrum. Was he right to be perturbed by Roberts’s questions, even if he may have taken his annoyance too far? Or does this just prove that Brown still has anger management work to do?

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
