Chris Brown's 'F.A.M.E.' Sales Soar After His 'GMA' Rampage!

The singer may not have been happy to talk about Rihanna — but his outburst after ‘Good Morning America’ made his new album the most-downloaded of the day on iTunes!

Chris Brown‘s angry wildman act after GMA didn’t scare off his fans! His new album F.A.M.E. jumped right to the top of the iTunes sales chart after his post-interview explosion March 22.

Chris’s new Jive Records album dropped the same day he sat down with Robin Roberts for the interview that set him off. His GMA appearance also included a great performance of  “Yeah 3x,” a track from F.A.M.E.

Chris got so steamed after Robin asked him about his 2009 assault on his then-girlfriend Rihanna he reportedly trashed a room backstage and smashed a window of the ABC building in Times Sqaure. He was happier later in the day and into the night at his Webster Hall listening party in NYC.

Not all of the critics have not been as happy as the fans with F.A.M.E. Take this from Margaret Wappler on latimes.com: “‘Beautiful People,’ with its powdered-sugar synths and dance floor positivity, is almost a Kylie Minogue song. With a few shifts in production values, ‘All Back’ could have easily found itself in the coffers of Taylor Swift or Carrie Underwood. All of it is done capably, even superbly in some cases, though F.A.M.E. also feels strained and sometimes downright desperate.”

But others, like Jody Rose of Rolling Stone, wrote: “F.A.M.E. boasts blockbuster hits and shows Brown has a good nose for production” in a three-star review.  Brad Wete also had something good to say on EW.com:  “Brown has not yet mastered the art of image rehabilitation. Musically, though, he’s in top form. F.A.M.E. shines brighter than anything he produced before that now-infamous incident.”

Now what do you say, Chris? One of the reasons you were so angry after GMA is your desire to put the Rihanna incident behind you. But even when it comes to discussing your music, that ugly day is always looming!

When a man beats a woman to the point that blood flows and then kicks her out of the car, that is LEARNED behavior from his family and peers. It’s violent and a crime. The consequences for this unfortunate public figure will be life long & sorry but 132,000 sales are not impressive for a world population of over 5 billion. BURP!

Haha not impressive? 132,000 sales in less than a week, multiply that by 10 as that is the selling price of an album. He’s got 1.3 million dollars less than a week! LESS THAN A WEEK! How much do you make?

That’d make sense if artists got 100% royalties. Last time I checked they barely get anything from record sales. Durr.

Chris Browns’ album FAME haunts me.
To think DWTS will promote this guys R rated album is just not right. Here are some lyrics from NO BullS**t.

“U already know what time it is, reach up i the dresser where the condoms is
And baby when i get it ill never let go, gonna take it slow
We aint gone stop till 9 am, if u cant take it all baby say when
make u c**m over and over again, and imma leave it in ”

DWTS is a great show, helping this guy to promote such filth is not really good for ABC.

He should stay and promote his crap on MTV or some other kiddies broadcast. His appearance on prime time is not appropriate.

It seems ABC has deaf ears to this situation. Perhaps they are too scared
to do anything as CBS and Chas. Sheen
has become a media zoo.

This type of entertainer (for lack of a better word) is degrading to all of aspects of quality entertainment.

Thank you for your time.

you’re either an old mom or lady who failed to grow up or a f****ng lonely girl with no life.
You’re saying that he is degrading to all aspects of quality entertainment when he’s sold millions of albums and critics are saying that he is very talented. You my friend are stupid.

“Wild Animal”? Chris Brown? LOL! Your wild animal are the 2 white men who were let out of prison and killed entire family, raping the females, and burning the house down. Those are animalistic behaviors. Chris Brown got in one altercation but for some odd reason, and I cant put my finger on it, but maybe its the elephant in the room noone is talking about…..race, you people wont let him live it down. Well F U and the perfert horse you road in on. I will buy a bunch of cd’s so he can stay around for as long as WE HIS FANS WANTS HIM TO!

I would like the media to give this young man a chance to live. He has been on the right track for two years. Trying to stay positive for his himself and his fans. I love and support him 100%. I see now he was right. The media is against him. Which makes the fans really angry. We all understand what transpired two years ago is done. We are ready to let Chris do his thing. Which is to be the best entertainer this world has seen. GOD bless Chris Brown.

He is like the “Dennis Rodman” of pop music, like Rodman he has alot of tattoos all over his body, of course he resembles Dennis Rodman, look at his hair!

I remember a moment in one Bulls game on TV in the 90’s, where Dennis Rodman kicked the cameraman and was suspenend for several games.

NOOOOOOOOO WAY he resembles Dennis Rodman. Its just the dted hair that all but he looks nothing like Dennis Rodman nor does he resemble him. And u cant compare his tattoos to Dennis Rodmans. Dennis Rodman is a hot mess. Thats a major diss to Chris brown nd he acts nothing like Dennis Rodman.
