Chris Brown gave yet another interview this weekend, this time to ABC’s Robin Roberts on “20/20.” In addition to his countless apologies and his version of what happened the night he attacked Rihanna, he also claimed he wrote a song for her which made her cry.
First, Brown admitted that he was heavily coached by PR people when he released his YouTube apology to the world, saying, “They just telling me like, ‘OK, don’t say this. And don’t say it this way, ’cause they’re gonna take it this way. So, I had in my — my head wasn’t really giving me a chance to be me. It was just being myself through other people. … It was genuinely from me, but it wasn’t projected genuinely.” We can understand that – although the one thing we’ll never understand in all of this is that bow tie he wore on “Larry King.” But ANYway.
Brown also said that he apologized to Rihanna many, many times, which we’ve been hearing for months now, but he also said he wrote the song “Changed Man” for her (coincidentally off his new album which releases tomorrow). A month after the incident, Brown played the song for Rihanna and says, “She called when she first heard the song. And I mean, I’m not trying to say — call her any liar or anything like that. But I played the song for her when I first wrote it. And she cried.”
We’re not entirely sure why we would think he was calling her a liar in this situation, but just so you know, world, convicted abuser Chris Brown doesn’t think Rihanna is a liar. Brown discusses his anger management classes and the fact that he never had any altercations with previous girlfriends, etc. etc etc. At this point it feels repetitive and while we’re almost starting to pity him, we wish these PR-heavy, face-saving interviews would go away.
