Angie Martinez Lands First Radio Interview with Chris Brown

Latina contributor Angie Martinez landed the first radio interview with Chris Brown yesterday on New York hip-hop station Hot 97 and immediately let him know how angry and disappointed she was when she found out about his now infamous abuse of ex-girlfriend and pop star Rihanna.

In response, Brown said, “At the end of the day, I’m human," he said. "Of course you’re gonna have your thoughts and opinions. I’m not gonna say they’re wrong. But at the end of the day, it’s not right to judge someone. People make mistakes all the time.”

Martinez was the first DJ to ever play Chris Brown's debut single "Run It!" and she obviously struggled with whether or not to forgive the young singer for his transgressions. As for Brown's regret, "I’m sorry for what I did," he said. "Only me and shorty know what went down in the car, it’s between us. There are always problems in relationships and it's how we handle them that shapes us and makes us better," he added.

Martinez gave Brown a relatively unique opportunity to tell his side of the story and address everything, from his beef with Oprah (not smart, Chris) to the bow-tied debacle that was his Larry King interview. We kept waiting for him to say something that would make us forgive him or conjure up even the tiniest amount of sympathy, but nope! We still think he's pretty much a total jerk! Check out our girl Miss Info to hear the interview.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
