Is Rihanna Looking for Love in a Hopeless Place?


Rumor has it that Chris Brown is the ‘shocking’ guest to appear on Rihanna‘s ‘Birthday Cake’ track. Is this for real? That shit cray. The fact that this is even circulating is so disappointing. Surely a woman talented enough to be one of the top-selling artists in the world at 24 is smarter than this? I understand that people make mistakes (or totally f*ck up in Brown’s case), and I do believe it is possible for them to earn the privilege of a second chance. But there is a certain responsibility Rihanna has (whether fair or not) that comes with being a influential pop icon. For an artist whose success is founded on songs of female empowerment, this sends a pretty mixed message. There is nothing ‘hard’ about being in a physically abusive relationship. And it’s not like Chris Brown has been working to change his ‘I’m quite possibly the biggest douche in the world’ image. No one should think Chris is a ‘new man’ after the Grammy twitter fiasco.
I had hoped the rumors about Rihanna and Chris secretly hooking up for the past year were just tabloid attempts to sell covers, but TMZ recently reported that Chris attended Rihanna’s birthday party.  Disgusting. Rihanna, you’re better than this. Chris Brown is not  your soul-mate. Even if you don’t care about how your fans will react, how the media will react and how it will completely shatter your image, please respect yourself enough to be with someone who respects you. Allowing him to profit off of what will probably be a top selling album only continues this parasitic relationship. Find a love that’s not so hopeless.
