December 04, 2009 09:20:29 GMT

ABC releases a preview of Robin Roberts' interview with Chris Brown on "20/20" which is scheduled to be aired on Friday, December 4.

Rihanna said that Chris had no "soul", totally "blacked out" and was not the person who said "I love you" to her. In response, Chris said "I was wrong for what I did. And I would definitely say it's not something that I look past or look over. It's something that's really touchy. And like I said, I'm really sorry for what went down and what happened."

GLAAD and ABC Reach the Middle in Adam Lambert's Case

December 04, 2009 06:27:43 GMT

ABC and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) would like to set apart the difference between sexual orientation and a performance that could jeopardize a broadcasting right. The network and the organization have agreed that Adam Lambert's American Music Awards performance has nothing to do with him being gay.

GLAAD said that they have spoken to ABC several times to discuss the issue that Adam is being held to double standard. Summarizing the result in a statement, the organization said, "It would appear that the kiss between Adam Lambert and his keyboardist did not factor into ABC's decision. ABC has a history of positive gay and transgender inclusion that includes featuring kisses between gay and lesbian couples on-air."

We have regionals after sectionals, so we have a long way to go."
