Chris Brown has apologized for trashing his dressing room this week following his Good Morning America interview in which he was asked about assaulting Rihanna.

"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," Brown said, according to a transcript of his live appearance on BET's 106 & Park that was obtained by ABCNews.com.

Robin Roberts conducted the interview Tuesday with Brown, who was there to promote his new album, F.A.M.E. 

Brown said he was “thrown off by” Roberts' questions.

 

“I felt like, it was like, O.K., you told us this just so they could get us on the show to exploit me," he said. "That’s what I thought. And so I took it very, very hard.”
 
He said he had to release "the anger that I had inside of me ... Yes, I got very emotional. And I apologize for acting like that."

 

Earlier on Wednesday, Roberts said the singer is welcome back on GMA (he also is set to perform on ABC's Dancing With the Stars next week).

"I wish him the absolute best," Roberts said on ABC's morning show. "We extended the invitation to him [to come back], and sure hope he takes us up on it because I'd sure love to have another chat with him."

She also claimed that Brown knew about the questions ahead of time.

"Any time we have a guest, we let them know ahead of time the subject matter and the topics. And even right before the interview I let him know," Roberts explained again on air. "I was shocked like everyone else, because we've had a wonderful relationship. I've been to his home, he's very gracious, and we've had easy conversation."
