Chris Brown Is 'Really Hurting Inside'

Posted: 01:22 PM ET


Chris Brown is still feeling sorry for his assault on Rihanna, the embattled R&B singer told 'Good Morning America' reporter Robin Roberts, saying that his smiling demeanor shouldn't be misconstrued as a lack of sincerity behind his apologies. "I'm really hurting inside and it's kind of like devastating to me," he said in the candid interview.

Brown, who gave his first post-assault tell-all interview to Larry King shortly after his sentencing, is now throwing his PR team under the bus for his lack of communications following the February beating of Rihanna. Despite wanting to come out and address the situation, Brown says he "had three or four days of PR and people telling me, 'OK, don't say this or don't say this because they're gonna take it this way.' So my head was not really giving me a chance to be me, it was me being me through other people."

When his video apology finally did come out, Brown says "it was genuinely from me but it wasn't projected correctly."

Yeah, because his records are probably not selling like he had hoped. Has he actually done anything to change his life? By watching the LKL interview he looked like he still had the same attitude and temper, and his mother being there protecting him didn't help. Just saying.

I completely agree.. HE'S HURTING?? PUH-LEASE!!!

He never looks sincere in his interviews.. he should seek help and stay out of the lime light!!! This is getting ridiculous!!!

Chris Brown should be in prison and hurting bad inside by being PUNKED OUT by dozens of convicts!

His story is another slap in the face of the justice which is placed upon the shoulders of the poor and lower classes in America, and hugely modified for the privileged and upper classes in America.

The next woman that becomes a victim at the hands of Chris Brown should hopefully get full legal and civil relief if she is left alive.

Maybe Kanye West's PR folks culd give Brown some tips. Silence for now would be a good start, but I'm not a pro.

@A. Smith, Oregon
you're right. prison time should have been the lesson for him. it was a criminal and cowardly act. not in favor of the PUNKED OUT part of it, though. save that one for other crimes.

Well Stated and I completely concur with your statements!

As long as Chris continues to rationalize, justify, excuse or blame others for his behavior, he is not willing to be responsible and his cycle of abuse will continue with other women.

What to the ever... Was you hurting when you were beating Rihanna... No... So Chris no one cares if you are hurting....

Just imagine, if he would have had to go to prison as most ordinary folks would have had too.

He would be hurting "GREVIOUSLY" inside with a bleeding anus.

Lame! Headline purposely written by CNN to elicit the predictable response....
"Oh, he's hurting on the INSIDE.....what about Rihanna and how he hurt HER on the OUTSIDE"

blah, blah......Lame!! usual......doing a real disservice to the actual story of domestic violence (both sides)....and just reaching for the sensationalistic knee-jerk response....and
as usual (and predictable)....some people fell for it.

CNN is really flushing itself down the "journalism" toilet....only Anderson is the only credible one left....sigh!!
