Chris and Rihanna, Sitting in a Tree...

Well, crap.

I've been trying to leave this one alone, because I think most (not all) celebrities are morally and spiritually bankrupt. Burned out on too much Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan, et al, I suppose.

Add to that, Mark Geragos is Chris Brown's lawyer, so that makes me dislike Chris on general principles. Geragos, in case you've been among the missing for the past few years, represented Scott Peterson in his murder trial when he killed his wife (he lost). He has represented quite a few horrible people over the years, with varying degrees of success. Now, he's defending Chris Brown.

How old is Rihanna, anyway? I am seeing that Chris Brown is 19. Much too young, IMO, to be thrust into the dog-eat-dog world of popular celebrity. Look at the picture of Rihanna.

Are you proud of yourself, Chris?

And now, the stupid little twit has taken him back, and doesn't want a protective order. I heard from a friend who knows somebody who knows a whole slew of people, that Chris's record label has bought Rihanna off. All their current cuddly-wuddly crap is just that. Crap.

Rihanna, I don't know anything about you. I don't know if you have a mama and a daddy, and I don't know if they have totally fallen down on the job, or if you just won't listen to them. But, here's something I know.

He will do it again. And again. And again. Each time, he will be all full of bullshit apologies after, and presents, and promises. And, each time, the next beating will be worse than the one before.

You have a chance, now, to get away from him. I wish you would do it.

What kind of message are you sending to your youthful audience? That it's OK to be beaten? That a woman is a Timex watch--she takes her licking and keeps on ticking?

There are more important things than money, Rihanna. Like it or not, you have a following of vulnerable little girls. In my opinion, you owe it to them to be strong here, and kick Mr Brown and his lawyer to the curb, permanently.


Brown's 10M Deal With Rihanna

So what’s in it for Rihanna? The source says their deal guarantees her ”as much as $10 million,” possibly more ”if he as much as squeezes her arm the wrong way.” So she’s supposed to put her life, safety and career at risk to make this dirtbag look good?

Rihanna, is your life worth this? It's bullshit. He is bullshitting you, his record label is bullshitting you, and we KNOW Geragos is bullshitting you. It's not worth it, Mija!


  1. Let's hope she googles herself! I'm sure what she saw in the mirror was a lot worse than this photo. And she saw it day after day. And she'll see the pic posted all over the web! I agree he'll do it again. But I think the POS will be sneakier about it next time. If he threatened with the words, "Now I'm really going to kill you," he's going to figure out a way to do it where it doesn't point to him! Slimy POS.

    I won't even start about Geragross.

  2. Makes me SICK.

    I actually USED to like Rhianna, she didn't seem to be all full of herself and a cookie cutter Pop Tart.

    Stupid stupid girl.

    Allegedly, this isn't the first time it's happened, either.


  3. Ronni:

    What you should tell Rihanna is that YOU know that good marriages are hard enough--and can--in the end--hurt you far beyond any pain where physical abuse can ever go. . .

    and that being said, why would anyone get into a BAD relationship and suffer physical harm.

    That is what you know, better than most people.

  4. True enough. As my friend Jeannie used to say, it's hard enough to make a marriage work with the right man. It's damn near impossible with the wrong one.

  5. She'll get beat up bad a few times and if she survives, will have a book ghostwritten for her and she will release an album with torchy songs about being "strong" and being a "survivor" which will clock in around five minutes and ten seconds and will give a few interviews to Rollingstone and Spin magazines and appear on The View and have great old comeback and be able to transition from r&b nymphet to feminist icon/middlebrow torch jazz chanteuse with some hip hop/Caribbean stylings for giggles.

    I'd look to her for relationship advice the same way I would look to Vince Neil for safe driving tips.

  6. Cynical, but quite possible.
