It’s a tale as old as time: Chris Brown and Rihanna get loved up, he beats her to a bloody pulp and they break up, they reunite and give each other weed for Valentine’s Day, they ignore each other in clubs and then Rihanna gets a Lucozade bottle thrown at her by an angry fan who thinks she shouldn’t be with America’s least favourite shit stain. That last part is exactly what happened this weekend in London after RiRi showed off her new “fashion collection” for the high street retailer River Island. We won’t even get into the “pieces” in that range, but let’s just say, it wasn’t good.
Anyway, via journalistic bible The Daily Mail:
Rihanna was left bleeding on a night out with party-girl Cara Delvingne after being bottled by a crazed fan who ‘screamed at her about Chris Brown’.
The Bajan singer ended her night at The Box nightclub with a cut knee after being ‘assaulted’ by the stranger, who hurled abuse at her regarding her union with Brown, outside the exclusive nightspot.
According to eye-witnesses, the injury came after the unidentified fan threw a bottle of Lucozade at the singer, before flinging a stream of insults about her on-off boyfriend.
In the commotion, Rihanna fell against a shop shutter and grazed her knee.
I mean, listen, no one deserves to be physically assaulted in any sense, but it’s a shame that bottle didn’t knock some damn sense into her at the same time. This is a bit of a non-story, really – after all, the bloody knee she got from falling into the shutter of a closed shop or whatever was minor at best. She’s probably hurt herself worse making mac and cheese during a munchie binge.

Katy Perry, despite what most people think, is a smart and thoughtful woman. Instead of hopping on the Welcome Back Chris Brown Express, she’s allegedly letting friends know that she doesn’t approve of Rihanna dating Chris Brown. The lovely Rihanna and the lovely Ms. Perry became friends after sitting together at last year’s Grammy Awards. Look, let’s make something clear: Katy Perry is not victim blaming. She’s not telling Rihanna not to date Chris Brown; she’s recognizing that this is a choice her friend is making and she’s stepping aside. On the other manicured hand, however, there were reports that Rihanna didn’t want to be Katy’s friend because of who Katy is dating, Mr. John Douche-Of-The-Universe-Now-And-Forever Mayer. When asked about it, Rihanna told Rolling Stone,
Katy Perry can date anyone she wants. Besides, who the f-ck am I to say anything? I could never given relationship advice to anybody!
Oh my. Was Rihanna taking a dig at herself there?
All we know for sure is that Perry and Mayer sat nowhere near Rihanna and Brown and there was no interaction. We also know that Ms. Perry did not once compliment Chris Brown. And who would do that? Oh, right, someone like you.

Who here wants to watch Rihanna sulk in a bathtub for a little over four minutes? If you raised your hand, this is your lucky day because that’s exactly what the ‘Stay’ video delivers. Sitting in a tub of cloudy water, Rihanna cries, stares off into the distance and probably questions why she’s still with that asshole Chris Brown.
In all seriousness, ‘Stay’ is a great track and one of her strongest to date. Mikky Ekko features – apparently, he’s going to be a big deal soon. I just have to wonder – if she can spend thousands of dollars taking journalists on a private jet tour of the world, could she not have sunk a bit more cash into her own music video? But maybe that’s the point – the song is meant to be desolate and sad. Well, it’s certainly achieved that.

In what has to be the most ridiculous story of the day – nay, the entire week – it seems that Justin Bieber was unfaithful to on-again/off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez… with Rihanna. Bahahaha! I’ll let you get it all out of your system before proceed. Go on, take your time, catch your breath. Okay?
Take it away, Life & Style:
Life & Style can exclusively reveal the reason Selena Gomez broke up with Justin Bieber after two years of dating: Selena found out that Justin had cheated on her in the early stages of their relationship — with Rihanna.
“It has devastated her,” a friend of Selena and Justin’s reveals in the new issue of Life & Style. “It really cut like a knife because it happened in February of 2011, when Selena and Justin had been dating for months and were falling in love. It’s caused Selena to question their entire relationship.”
After flirting at a basketball game in LA on Feb. 20, 2011, the friend tells Life & Style that he and Rihanna hooked up.
Though Justin and Selena, who have been dating since late 2010, have been off and on in recent months as work kept them apart, this devastating piece of information caused her to break things off for good, says the friend. Now, “Selena thinks maybe they’ve been hooking up all along,” their friend tells the mag.
Okay, I don’t even know where to start with this one. First of all, I know Rihanna is sexually liberated and gets her swerve on at all times (get yours, girl – no shame!), but Justin Bieber? In 2011, he would have been just about 17. His voice was barely mature, so I doubt much else was. He was just some wannabe Usher with mediocre singing and barely passable dancing – hardly her cup of tea, if I had to guess (regardless of how “awesome” Mike Tyson thinks he is). Second of all… just, no. I don’t even have a second of all, it’s just that stupid.
I will say, however, that I’m sure Justin has cheated on Selena with quite a few girls, most likely 13-year-old groupies who stalk him at his concerts. He’s just the worst – dunno what anyone sees in this little asshole.

Rihanna smoked away all the f-cks she had left to give a long while ago, so it should be no surprise that she couldn’t care less whether anyone thinks she’s a bad role model. I sort of love Rihanna’s buck wild spirit (and definitely love her music, and not even ironically) but even I have to admit that I wouldn’t want my kids – if I had any – looking up to her. She defends her decision to reunite with her abuser, can’t seem to keep her clothes on and spends most of her time Instagramming photos of herself rolling and smoking weed. On the flip side, she works damn hard, and luckily I’m a balanced adult who can separate entertainment from idiocy.
Either way, the point is that Rihanna doesn’t give a shit whether you or I approve of her lifestyle at all, and what better way for her to send that message than to post a badly Photoshopped self-portrait on Instagram?
Well, okay, but to be fair, I don’t think anyone is surprised so much as, well, kinda non-plussed about the perpetual nonsense that comes out of your mouth/keyboard. Anyway, I’m off to listen to ‘Rude Boy’.

From Rolling Stone:
Rihanna has opened up like never before about getting back together with her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, and what it means for her public image.
“I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” she tells contributing editor Josh Eells in the new issue of Rolling Stone, out Friday, January 31st. “I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”
The couple’s public reconciliation comes less than four years since Brown assaulted Rihanna the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards. Brown plead guilty to assault and performed community service, but he remains on probation.
“When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world,” Rihanna says. “You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about shit. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”
And Rihanna says that if Brown were ever to display a hint of his past behavior towards her, she is ready to walk.
“He doesn’t have the luxury of f–king up again,” she says. “That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
Ooh, Chris Brown doesn’t have the luxury of f-cking up again. I’m sure that’s going to be in the forefront of his mind when he goes off on a rage-filled explosion of fists and teeth—I’m sure he’s going to be thinking, “Oh, wait, that’s right; I don’t have the luxury of f-cking up again, but I do have the luxury of boning another silly chick with self-esteem issues, so there’s that, too.”
Later on in the interview, she insinuates that Chris should have been pretty broken up about losing her the first time around—or at least, that’s what she was intending by keeping her distance for a few weeks to start:
“I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that. So when that (stuff) came back it hit me like a ton of bricks. Like, God, you’ve got to be kidding right now. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn’t bury the way I felt.”
In short? This girl is a complete idiot. Lena Dunham got it right—Rihanna’s just dumb and pathetic. That’s all.
