Chris Brown and Rihanna: I’ve been a little nervous to touch this…

Like that blonde headed chick from Poltergeist would say, "WE'RE BACK!"

And we’ve been REALLY REALLY bad bloggers. Slap us on the wrists and don’t give us a cookie. Especially Katie D. That troublesome red head…

But I think we do need to address this Chris Brown/Rihanna issue. The pictures of Rihanna post-beating have been released and I am not going to post it here. If you want to see it, you can google it on your own time. I personally support the opinion that by having this photo circulated, Rihanna has been victimized twice.

Chris Brown is now claiming self-defense. That he only attacked her because she attacked him. Where the fuck are your bruises, Chris Brown? Where are they? Because I can see Rihanna's. Everywhere. And now 50 cent, who has such great street cred in domestic abuse situations, speaks out on the future of Chris Brown’s career.

For some reason, the future of his career is the main focus of everyone’s attention. "What’s going to happen to his image?" ask the old ladies buying Virginia Slims in the Dean & Deluca check out line. Who gives a fuck.

What is going to happen when a court rules against the victim, the woman, in this situation? When Chris Brown, because of his status, doesn’t serve time for beating his girlfriend, like every other high profile law suit, they never actually get what's coming to them; what message is this going to send? It shouldn’t be a question of careers, but of consequence. I don’t think the details of how or why this happened matters, but that it did. And the legal result of this needs to be one that sends a message to the general public. Beating women, beating people, is not ok.

Even if you are Ike and Tina, Tina dumped Ike, and she’s doing just fine for herself if you recall. And if Bobby did beat Whitney, it’s not like she could have felt it anyway, she’s so cracked out all the time. They’re still together, and what has happened to their careers? Nothing. They are non-existent. Except for drug infamy. Which, is that really what you want to be known as?

If Rihanna or Chris Brown end up with a reality TV show, I might have to shoot myself in the face.

Do you have any ideas as to what it would be called? Leave them in the comments...

Moral: Dump the dude, keep your career and he lands in the slammer.

  1. To your moral, Here! Here! This whole story is so sad, but I agree that the focus on his career instead of the many women who endure abuse every day is total bull shit. And the self defense line? You have GOT to be kidding me. Way to take on a touchy subject and kudos to you for not re-posting the pictures. -e
