News: Chris Brown Is Done W/ Rihanna Questions, Prematurely Ends Live Interview
Friday, Dec 11, 2009 10:30AM
R&B singer Chris Brown has displayed his disinterest in addressing Rihanna questions after surprising radio listeners yesterday (December 10) by hanging up on a talk show host during his live interview.
The incident took place with Washington KUBE radio hosts Eddie and Karen.
Chris Brown was instantly yanked off a live radio interview early this morning when the DJ decided to stray from the promotional questions for a more salacious topic -- Rihanna. Chris spent several minutes promoting his new album on the "Wake Up Show" on Seattle's KUBE 93, when the topic turned to Rihanna. Brown deflected the first question saying, "I'm really done talking about the whole situation ... I'm just moving forward." But the DJ wasn't done yet -- and blurted out, "F**k that, did Rihanna throw you under the bus or what?" Before Brown could even respond, his handler tells the DJ, "alright guys" -- and hangs up on the station. (TMZ)
So who, exactly, is this famous girl Brown is referring to? Is it Rihanna? Brown declined to specify. "'Famous Girl' is what it is," he explained in an interview. "I mean, it really doesn't need any explanation. I think what 'Famous Girl' does is just explain how I felt and how I feel about certain situations. So if you want to know what it is, listen to it."

Reviews of his new album, Graffiti, compared his project to Rihanna's Rated R.
If by some accident of fate, or maybe record-company cynicism, the new Chris Brown album has arrived at the same moment as his ex's. The results tempt a reviewer to talk in terms of moral victories, but the real triumph here is artistic. Chris Brown has made a bland, occasionally obnoxious, pro forma R&B album. Rihanna has transformed her sound and made one of the best pop records of the year. (Rolling Stone)
Brown has also displayed his remorse in multiple interviews.
When asked, "Do you think the punishment fits the crime?", Brown paused, and then spoke more of the public humiliation he has been suffering than he did of the actual court-ordered punishment. Brown made it clear that he was not his step-father and sent out a clear message to people who might be in relationships that involve domestic violence. "The choices and decisions you make will change your future," was part of his message. (Examiner)
