Video: Chris Brown Apologizes for 'GMA' Tantrum

Singer Chris Brown apologized for Tuesday's "Good Morning America" outburst after Robin Roberts repeatedly asked him about his infamous altercation with ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown, who appeared on BET's "106 & Park" on Wednesday, said he had to "let out the anger" since he wanted to promote his new album, "F.A.M.E.," and not dredge up events that occurred over two years ago. The 21-year-old urged his fans not to send any negative messages to Roberts. "Do not send any threats, I've been hearing things on Twitter... We need to take a stand and focus on the more positive things in life."

In his apology, the "Forever" singer said, "First of all, I just wanna apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, anybody who was offended or really disappointed in my actions, because I was disappointed with the way I acted," Brown said Wednesday. "A lot of people don't know what went down, and obviously when I do shows or when I do interviews, we always send out a talking point sheet. As the interview proceeded, it was kinda thrown off. I was thrown off by it.

"I felt like they told us this just so they could get us on the show so they can exploit me. So I took it very, very hard and I really kinda kept my composure throughout the whole interview, although you can see me upset, I kept my composure, I did my performance."

Chris added, "And when I got back [stage] I just let off steam. I didn't physically hurt anyone, I didn't try to hurt anyone, I just wanted to release the anger that I had inside me because I felt that I worked so hard for this music and I felt like people kept just trying to take it away from me.

"So yes, I got very emotional, and I wanna apologize for acting like that."
