VIA EURWEB:

In his People magazine interview, Chris Brown appears to feel betrayed by Oprah Winfrey and her decision to air an episode that called attention to domestic violence – dedicated to “all the Rihannas of the world.”

The 20-year-old R&B singer said, “I commend Oprah on being like, ‘This is a problem,’ but it was a slap in my face.”

“I did a lot of stuff for her, like going to Africa and performing for her school. She could’ve been more helpful, like, ‘OK, I’m going to help both of these people out.’”

In response, Oprah’s rep told TMZ, “Oprah is very appreciative that Chris Brown performed at her school, but she takes domestic abuse very seriously. She hopes he gets the counseling he needs.”

Meanwhile, Brown says he’s looking forward to his court-ordered counseling, and hopes to learn how to channel his anger into something more positive – such as dancing.
