Why do fools fall in love? As current entertainment news states, Chris Brown and Rihanna have begun recording remixes on each other’s songs once again. Chris Brown featured Rihanna in his latest single, “Turn up the Music Remix” Later, it was announced that Rihanna featured Chris Brown, in return, in her song, “Birthday Cake Remix” Both songs were released in the month of February, in some cases known as the month of love. Rumors spread afterwards that Rihanna and Chris had been rekindling their past rocky relationship.
As we all can remember back in 2009 in February news spread of R&B singer Chris Brown physically abusing his girlfriend, Pop singer Rihanna. At the time people went into an uproar declaring that Chris should be punished.
However, the court allotted Chris 180 days of community service, 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling, and probation from being within 50 yards of Rihanna. But recent gossip states that Rihanna and Chris Brown have been seeing each other off and on throughout time.
After the release of the Chris Brown and Rihanna’s music people have criticized their collaboration. Many people look down upon Rihanna based on her decisions to have anything to do with Brown. It’s been mentioned that even Jay-Z, CEO of Roc-A-Fella Records, is upset of Rihanna’s decisions. Many believe that this minor relationship between Rihanna and Chris Brown will just cause more problems and will probably spark another Chris Brown outburst. Chris Brown is still currently in a relationship with his girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
As for my opinion, domestic violence happens every day and is a serious topic that should be taken serious. However one thing we must all remember, is that people make their own decisions. Women constantly are advised to stay away from the gentlemen who have physically, emotionally, or verbally abused them. The same goes for men who are in abusive relationships. Whether Rihanna and Chris are in love or just want the public’s attention we may never know but one thing they have and will always gain is the media’s attention.
I believe Rihanna and Chris Brown are keeping a connection with each other to feed off one another, musically and socially. Chris Brown alone has so many fans while Rihanna continues to improve and gain more followers. Believe it or not there may be a motive behind Rihanna’s decisions., if you watch and listen to the music each writes I would advise the public to just sit back and watch as Rihanna and Chris Brown rekindle the drama among each other.
