Chris Brown to be interviewed on '20/20'

NEW YORK -- ABC says Chris Brown will appear on its ''20/20'' newsmagazine Dec. 11.

In what's billed as an in-depth interview, the singer will discuss his assault of ex-girlfriend and recording superstar Rihanna in February. He is on probation for the beating.

Robin Roberts, anchor of ABC's ''Good Morning America,'' conducted the interview. It was taped last weekend.

ABC spokesman Jeffrey Schneider said clips may also air on ''Good Morning America.'' He said Brown will not perform live.

Brown is scheduled to release his album ''Graffiti'' on Dec. 8. He has previously spoken about the attack on MTV News and ''Larry King Live.''

Rihanna was interviewed this month by ABC's Diane Sawyer.

Foundation begins Swayze scholarship

DAYTON, Ohio -- The Arabian Horse Foundation has established a scholarship in honor of late actor Patrick Swayze and his wife, who both owned Arabian horses and competed in shows for several years.

The foundation is the charitable arm of the Denver-based Arabian Horse Association.

Foundation President Larry Kinneer of Dayton, Ohio, said Friday that the scholarship ''creates a lasting testimony to their careers in dancing, theater and movies, love of the Arabian breed and contributions over the years to AHA youth programs.''

The scholarship will be awarded each spring to a youth involved with Arabian horses who seeks a performing arts career. It was launched with a pledge from Iron Horse Farms in Canton.
