Chris Brown is offering an interesting apology to Robert Glasper after being upset on social media following his loss of the “Best R&B Album” Grammy to the decorated pianist and producer on Sunday, February 5. The singer posted a screenshot of his Instagram direct message to Glasper, writing, “Congratulations my brother… I would like to apologize if you took offense to my reaction at the Grammys. You were not the intended target and I know I came off really rude and mean.”
He continued: “After doing my research I actually think you’re amazing… the organization isn’t doing us Blacks our due diligence. You and I should never be in the same category… two totally different vibes and genres. So from one Black man to another, congratulations. Hope you are able to feed your family for life. God bless my G.” Following Glasper’s fifth Grammy award win for “Black Radio III,” which topped Brown’s “Breezy,” CB posted an IG Story of Glasper reading, “Y’all playing.

Veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned to full AC Milan training after a lengthy layoff due to an ACL injury. The 41-year-old underwent surgery on his ACL in May 2022, and he confirmed shortly after that he planned to return to the field despite his age. It appears that he is close to fulfilling his promise, with the player due to be available for Milan’s Serie A contest with Torino this Friday, according to reports.
Ibrahimovic was a steady contributor for the Rossoneri as they won the Scudetto last year, scoring eight times in Serie A. Stefano Pioli’s side is currently in sixth place and will benefit from the return of their veteran forward.
