Should Rihanna Be Working With Chris Brown? [POLL]
Rihanna is back with Chris Brown…at least in the studio…and it makes me uncomfortable. The man beat her after the 2009 Grammy Awards. Remember the picture of her with the bruises and the black eyes and swollen face? And now we are supposed to act like it never happened?
I, luckily, have never been in a physically abusive relationship. I don’t know what it’s like, and I hate judging her when I don’t know what I would do in the same situation.
I do think though, that she has a responsibility as a public figure to be a good example to other women. Matt Ryan and I were talking about this yesterday on the air, and a listener called and compared Rihanna and Chris Brown to Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. Will Chris be Rihanna’s downfall?
My heart goes out to Rihanna, and I only hope she stays strong and safe and doesn’t wind up in a dangerous situation again. I don’t know Chris Brown, and maybe he won’t hit her again, but I don’t think that’s a chance she should take.
And please, if you or someone you know is being abused, don’t be afraid to get help. You’re not alone. You can contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline or contact a local group like Dottie’s House.
