ABC pulled the plug on controversial crooner Chris Brown’s performance Good Morning America next week.
Instead, Brown has agreed to “come clean” with the events leading up to his February attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna in a primetime interview with Robin Roberts, the network has revealed.
ABC was harshly criticized by gay and women’s rights advocates last week after it cancelled a performance by openly-gay former American Idol Adam Lambert on GMA — following his sex-charged performance on the American Music Awards–then announced plans to allow Chris — a convicted felon and woman beater to promote his latest CD with a live show on the program.
Chris is promising to give details of the incident in an “in-depth interview” with GMA host Robin Roberts set to air on 20/20 Dec. 11. His appearance comes just a month after Rihanna’s 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer drew nearly 9 million viewers.
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz have arrived in the southern Spain village of Cadiz Sevilla to film scenes for the James Mangold-directed action comedy Knight & Day, Spanish media reported on Sunday.
The Hollywood stars have started shooting scenes that imitate the famous bull run held each year in northern Spain.
During The Pamplona Bull Run, crowds race ahead of a herd of thundering bulls, which can weigh up to 1,500 pounds each, along a 900 yard course of cobbled streets. The run is held in the city each July and was made famous by Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises.
Earlier this month, seven bulls escaped durng the film’s rehearsals, slightly injuring two women.
Knight & Day opens in North America in July 2010.
