OK, so it wasn’t necessarily a full-on make-out, nor was it the RED! CARPET! REUNION! that we all thought might happen, but seriously, where the f-ck was I when this shit between Chris and Rihanna happened? Yeah, it was an innocent peck on the cheek and short hug, but still. If there was a guy who beat me to near-oblivion, the very next time he tried to get close to me wouldn’t be for a hug and a kiss—it would be because I attacked his face with my nails and teeth.
Incidentally, I didn’t see Chris Brown‘s “girlfriend,” Karreuche Tran, either during the awards ceremony, or at any of the red carpet events or afterparties. Interesting, hm? No, in fact, Karreuche Tweeted a photo last night that said “TREAT YOUR GIRL RIGHT,” which is probably a barb at Chris Brown ditching Karreuche for singledom at the VMAs, and then kissing his ex-girlfriend for the world to see. At least that’s what I’m thinking, anyway.
What do you guys think—are these two hooking back up yet or what?

As you can see in that photo above, and as it was briefly talked about an hour ago, Rihanna has cut all her hair off. And it looks SO CUTE.
Rihanna showed off her new, adorable hair when she made her way to a rehearsal for tonight’s VMAs. Which are happening tonight, as we said, and which Sarah is liveblogging. Tune in!
But hey, another reason why I wanted to show you Rihanna’s new hair – which, in case you were wondering, is still incredibly, amazingly awesome – is that we’ve been having such a fun time talking about Emma Watson and the politics of short hair, and I wanted to keep the discussion going because it’s a topic that I feel strongly about. And just a warning, this is about to get real personal, so if that offends you, probably go read an encyclopedia or something.
Like I said yesterday, I’ve had a lot of women tell me that they’d love to have short hair, but their significant others don’t approve. I’ve also had a lot of women tell me that they’d love to have short hair, but it would look terrible on them. So many people think that a lady has to be very thin and preferably short with a dainty little nose and tiny ears and so many other specific features to pull off short hair. And listen. We have to stop this. We have to promote short hair for everyone who wants it. We have to let go of the fear.
See, I have short hair, and I love it. Well, I’m in the process of growing it out right now, mostly because my wedding is coming up relatively soon and I want to be able to have more options with my hair, but I seriously love it. And I’m pretty short, but you guys. I’m fat. I know. But I think I look better with short hair. Look, I even have comparison photos!
The photo on the left is from last year, and, as you can see, I’m sporting long hair and a ridiculously excited face from playing with a horse. The photo on the left is from this spring, and that’s me with short hair (that’s admittedly in need of a trim) and also my boyfriend. You don’t have to be Emma Watson or Rihanna or Natalie Portman to have short hair and look cute, you guys. I promise.
And just to bring this back to Rihanna and the VMAs and Rihanna’s precious head for a minute, guess what. She and Chris Brown are both seated on the front row at the VMAs, and you know what else? There are only seven seats between them. Seven! How much do you want to bet that he’ll try to reach across and touch her knee?

So I saw last night that Kristen Stewart flew out of LAX. And then I Googled where the VMAs were going to be held this year (yeah, I know; bad, bad entertainment writer, not knowing which venue this year’s awards are at), my heart sunk and a dull, aching, burning pit took the place of where my stomach would normally be. Guys, much to my chagrin, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson won’t be reuniting at the VMAs tonight. It’s just not going to happen. Unless Kristen somehow got flew her skinny ass back into the area sometime today and did a whirlwind turnaround in sprucing herself up, it’s just not happening.
So where does that leave us? Well, it leaves us with the possibility of Rihanna and Chris Brown being the key to that blind item we’ve been talking about all week long. The one where it was all, “With the pair already sharing the same bed again, all bets hedge on them walking the red carpet together very, very soon.” The one that makes us all think that Rihanna and her brand-new hair are going to be strolling down the red carpet with the dude who beat her face to a bloody pulp on her arm.
I like the hair, girl, but this Chris Brown business just better not be happening.
Tune in for tonight’s SUPER-DUPER BIG 2012 VMA LIVEBLOG courtesy of yours truly—I promise to go through its entirety as long as Chris Brown and Rihanna don’t start sucking face halfway through, OK? Like I said earlier today, everyone’s got their standards, you know.
Because Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson kind of hijacked this post, and we didn’t really talk all that much about the Important Thing that Rihanna did with her hair, I’m going to hand the reins over to Emily to discuss what’s really important and doesn’t have a thing to do with Chris Brown (sort of). Take it, girl.

Now hang on just a damn minute, here. Didn’t we just decide that Robert Pattinson’s having sex with Katy Perry’s voluptuous midsection these days? Yeah, I think we did. So what’s this business about Rihanna hitting that? Or is it customary for Rihanna to make her rounds on all of the newly-single Hollywood actors who’ve been caught up in a cheating scandal?
In either case, who’d you rather Robert be hooking up with—Rihanna or Katy Perry?

And I say “too,” because it happened just yesterday when Evan Rachel Wood made her “joke” about Miley Cyrus and her “lesbian hair.”
Anyhoo, Joan Rivers saw the Oprah Winfrey-Rihanna interview that everyone’s going all crazy over (seriously, Rihanna says she still loves Chris Brown and was more worried about him after he beat the snot out of her; it’s craziness), and she decided to make a comment of her own on Twitter. This is what she said:
Rihanna confessed to Oprah Winfrey that she still loves Chris Brown. Idiot! Now it’s MY turn to slap her.
To which Rihanna responded:
CONTROL YOUR SPEECH! #devotionnavy http://t.co/Y3BdgfPU
And in following the link, it takes you to … well, this:
So now Rihanna’s spouting Bible verses to people who say she’s cray-cray for defending Chris Brown to the death (probably hers).
Now, I don’t agree that Joan Rivers was entirely in the right for what she said (because there’s always going to be *someone* who’s offended by an ill-placed “joke”), but really. What does Rihanna expect when she goes public, confirming that yeah, she loves Chris Brown and they’re probably still doing it on the regular? People are going to judge her for her actions, right or wrong. It’s going to happen. “Control your speech” though? Come on. Some might say that, unlike the slap(s) she received from Chris Brown, she might “deserve” those she’d receive from a pissed-off Joan Rivers. Like, you know. Joan Rivers.

Oh, but just to clarify, when I referred to Chris Brown‘s girlfriend in that headline up there, I wasn’t referring to Rihanna. Even though Chris and Rihanna have been very strongly linked here recently, and even though there are tons of rumors that they are seeing each other again, when I say “Chris Brown’s girlfriend,” I’m talking about his other girlfriend. The official one, the one he keeps around for appearances or whatever. Karrueche. She caught Oprah’s interview with Rihanna, and she was not impressed.
From Hollywood Life:
“If Karreuche ever thought she stood a chance being Chris’ main bitch, she can forget that now. She watched Ri on Oprah and the girl was crying. She saw how much Chris and Ri love each other, on TV no less, and it made her shed some tears. Chris always told her Rihanna was his true love and now Rihanna told the whole world that too. Man, you would think K.T. would be in a bad place right now. I mean, she is because she’s crying,” a source close to the situation tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
In fact, Karrueche was so upset that she DISSED Rihanna with a tweet after the interview! But according to our source, Karrueche knows where she stands in Chris’ life.
“Make no mistake, KT know what time it is and she know where she stands in my [boy's] life. Even though she ballin’ her eyes out, she knew this from jump street. I like K.T. though. She’s a girl I would have on my team any day and she good for Chris right now. She brings a whole new level to rebound broad,” the source adds.
Chris is trying to keep everyone’s feelings in check. He even reached out to Rihanna after the interview — he loves her too!
“You gotta give it to Chris though because he ain’t trying to hurt nobody. She damn well knew how he felt at that time about Ri and I think now more than anytime she knows it’s real. But I want you to know Chris ain’t no pimp like that. He ain’t trying to hurt Ri or K.T. or anybody. He just being real and keeping the game 100,” our source says.
“She (K.T.) gone be around for a minute though. She ain’t going no where right now. But man, Chris and Ri, it’s gone happen. Just wait.”
I was totally prepared to believe all of this, because Chris Brown is an asshole, and assholes do asshole-ish things like telling their girlfriends that they will never ever be their main bitch all the time. But that tweet that the article refers to, the one where Karreuche dissed Rihanna? She tweeted “LOL.” That’s it. Not to anyone, no tags, no nothing, just a good old-fashioned “LOL.” It was a few hours after Rihanna’s interview aired though, and obviously everything this girl ever says or does or tweets in her life has to do with Rihanna. Ugh.
