"I didn't try to hurt anyone. I just wanted to release the anger that I had inside of me because I felt like I worked so hard for this music and I love my fans and I love to be able to make positive music, but I felt like people kept just trying to take it away from me," he said on BET's 106 & Park on Wednesday evening.
Brown was on the ABC morning program Tuesday to promote his new album, and became upset when Robin Roberts questioned him about his domestic violence incident with Rihanna and the subsequent restraining order. When the interview was over, Brown stormed off stage and smashed a window in his dressing room.
The performer says he took the interview hard, but was able to keep his composure on stage. "When I got back, I just let off, like, steam," he said.
Still, Brown is offering his apology:
"First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really looked, and [was] disappointed at my actions ... Because I'm disappointed in the way I acted."
