As the story goes, Chris Brown attacked Rihanna in 2009 after she threw the keys to his Lamborghini during a scuffle. The pictures showed a beat-up pop singer, leaving Brown still on probation for his transgressions, three years later.
Thing is, Rihanna has since made very questionable career decisions since then. The video for the song "S&M," for instance. We support her decision to explore these alternative sexual lifestyles, but really, does she know what S or M stand for? Sure being freaky doesn't mean domestic abuse turns you on, but again and again, Rihanna seems to make really weird moves. With Eminem in "Love the Way You Lie," she sings, "Well, that's alright, because I like the way it hurts." And not like she actually doesn't like it. The Jamaicans are pissed at her over the "Man Down" video, in which she's getting roughed up yet again, and giving Caribbeans, many think, a bad rap.
There were rumors on the web about a Brown-Rihanna reunion, and he recently even attended her birthday party. But no one expected the bomb that dropped today. Brown will appear on Rihanna's upcoming track "Birthday Cake (Remix)."
Sure Brown brings the party, but doesn't he also bring the beatings? This whole ordeal fascinates us. Do we love Brown or hate him? Who cares. What matters is, does Rihanna?
