An apology from Chris Brown? Run it!
After losing for Best R&B Album at the 2023 Grammys, the 33-year-old apologized to winner Robert Glasper for initially reacting to his loss in a series of since-deleted Instagram Stories. (For a complete list of winners, click here.)
“Congratulations my brother,” the “No Guidance” singer wrote in a screenshot of a direct message he sent to Robert, posted on his Instagram Stories. “I would like to apologize if you took offense to my reaction at the Grammys. You were not the intended target and I know I came off really rude and mean. After doing my research I actually think you’re amazing.”
Chris—who was also nominated alongside Mary J. Blige, Lucky Daye and PJ Morton—went on to note that his “intended target” was in fact the Recording Academy.
“The organization isn’t doing us blacks our due diligence,” he continued. “You and I should never be in the same category. Two totally different vibes and genres. So from one black man to another. Congratulations. Hope you are able to feed your family for life. God bless my G.”
