OK, to answer the question in the headline, “Are Rihanna and Chris Brown Tweeting Each Other Again?”, my answer is, frankly, “I don’t give a f-ck.” These two people are complete assholes (one a bit more than the other, but let’s not reopen that can of worms today), and I just don’t have it in me to be all “girl power” and “you go girl” all over Rihanna anymore. It’s just not there, and I’m not going to waste my time faking it. It’s like Ike and Tina Turner, only after Ike beat the ever-loving snot out of Tina, no one wanted to touch his grimy ass. Apparently times have changed, friends, and the in thing to do is maybe eat where you shit.
Tina Turner once said:
“It’s [the divorce was] not about leaving with money. You leave with knowledge. Inner strength. All the discipline I have to have now came from being with that man … I knew what I was doing, and I knew why, and I got out. You don’t step out and do what I did with my life if you don’t have some control there.”
You know, maybe Rihanna HAS gained control (though I somehow doubt it), and maybe she hasn’t (the likelier of the two choices). But the bottom line is that there’s a huge difference between being a big enough person to forgive someone for something so awful, and to continuously put your heart out there to let that other person know that, in addition to forgiving them, they also still have the same power over you that turned against you in the end anyway. It’s like, just because you love someone doesn’t mean that you *need* to be together.
