The Associated Press is reporting that singer Chris Brown apologized for his outburst during his appearance at Good Morning America earlier this week.

He said he was surprised that he was asked about his attack on Rihanna which happened a few years back. He said he got upset over the questions and needed to let out 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 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 trying to take it away from me, he said during BET's 106 & Park Wednesday evening.

ABC News reported that the singer smashed a window in his dressing room after he was interviewed by Good Morning America host Robin Roberts.

I kind of kept my composure throughout the whole interview. Although you could see me upset, I kept my composure, did my performance. When I got back I just let out steam in the back, Brown said.

The 21-year-old singer was there to promote his new album F.A.M.E. but when Roberts asked him about beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna he got visibly upset and stormed out of the building.

Roberts and ABC News claim that Brown was informed of the direction of the interview.

Chris Brown was invited on 'Good Morning America' to perform and to be interviewed. There were no talking points offered, ABC News said through a statement.

Brown apologized to anybody who was startled in the office, anybody who was offended or really ... disappointed in my actions, because I was disappointed in the way I acted.

Brown pleaded guilty in 2009 to a felony and was sentenced to five years' probation. He is still struggling to improve his shattered image. He said he wants to focus on the positive and asked his fans not to send any threats to Roberts.

We don't need that. We need to take a stand and be more positive, he said.

It seems Roberts is ready to move on as well.

It's time to move on ... we wish him the absolute best, she said.
