I’ve been waiting for this story to surface. Chris Brown and Rihanna have decided to take a break in hopes of getting their minds clear. I call total bullshit on this. This isn’t a break, this is called, “Oh shit, if we ever hope to sell another album we better do something,” PR spin.
It explains why they are far apart from each other right now. Brown is in L.A. working on his music and Rihanna has been in New York visiting friends and being photographed looking completely healthy and fine.
Now, let me tell you how this will unfold: To the public, they will remain apart and on opposite coasts for a period of time. When the media attention dies down, they will “reunite” and release a statement interspersed with words like “growth” and “maturity” and “respect” and “healthy.” Rihanna and Chris will indicate their commitment, not just to each other but to their respective anger management counseling sessions.
Cynical? Perhaps. The good news is that nothing would thrill me more than to be wrong regarding this “break” being nothing more than an engineered scam. Let’s hope these two stay far away from one another for life.
