Oh, so you mean it’s real then. Or, at least as “real” as a relationship between two complete f-cking morons can be, anyway, right? Sources close to Demi claim that the budding relationship between her estranged husband and Rihanna has her “sick to her stomach.” They also claim that Demi’s becoming obsessive about finding out information about the two:
“Demi is constantly keeping tabs on Ashton so when these pictures came up she was understandably devastated. Demi’s convinced something happened between them and said she felt ‘sick to her stomach’. Demi is in such a fragile state, even the idea of them together has affected her quite badly. She’s in a terrible way but, at the end of the day, Ashton is a single man and free to do whatever he likes. Demi can’t believe Ashton would do this. She’s really hurt by the rumors and feels humiliated he’s being linked to other celebrities just a few weeks after she got out of rehab. Demi’s been acting crazy ever since [she found out about Ashton and Rihanna], trying to find out information about the pair.”
Though I’m still not entirely convinced that these two are dating – I mean, I wouldn’t bat an eye hearing that Rihanna would hook up with practically anyone who has a record clear of abuse (and even those who don’t) and who’s moderately famous, but Ashton hooking up with Rihanna? Maybe if this were the case a few years ago, it’d be a major upgrade, but this is Rihanna circa 2012 we’re talking about. Ashton’s definitely no prize by any far cry, and to say that he’s probably the better of the two in this “relationship” makes me sick to my stomach, but Rihanna is kind of floundering in no man’s territory these days. She does interviews where she talks about being insecure, offends Twitter followers with petty BS, and gets really f-cking dumb-ass tattoos. Where’s the appeal in a woman who’s unsure of herself, petty, and who exercises poor judgement? Yeah, she’s decent-looking enough, but sometimes looks aren’t all where it’s at, you know.
Here’s what I think should happen: Demi should internalize some of these feelings, if they are, indeed, real. I’m not saying that people should be suppressing their feelings, because that’s just bad, but there are definitely some things you need to keep to yourself. Demi needs to do that if, again, this is all real talk we’re dealing with.
As for Ashton, he just needs to … I don’t know. Maybe not be famous anymore. Dudes like him are a dime a dozen – they don’t give a flying shit about anyone’s feelings but their own, and they’ll use anyone and everyone to get what they want. People need to really avoid this kind of person, because the only one getting hurt in the end will be them. Avoid, avoid, avoid.
Finally, Rihanna just needs to grow the f-ck up. I know she’s only twenty-four years old, and though that doesn’t give her a pass to be stupid, she’s stupid. Bitch is dumb. She had a real opportunity to be a positive role model a few years back, but because of some missteps along the way coupled with fake arrogance covering up some serious self-worth issues, she’s shot. She’s done. Who’s going to take someone seriously who doesn’t even take themselves seriously?
This situation is just one fine mess.
