Was casually flipping through a People Magazine when I stopped at a headline, "Rihanna thankful for her fresh start with Chris Brown." WHAT?! Earth to Rihanna...four years ago this man beat you badly enough that you ended up in the ER and pictures of your black and blue face were splattered over the media. And you're thankful that man even exists neverthelss for a fresh start?! I'm mad at her. Not that she cares and not that I even get an opinion...but I'm mad at her. She says, 'now that we're adults we can do this right.' Okay so now you're 25 and 23...first off, you were both adults last time around and secondly, what difference is four years going to make on the grand scheme of things? Rihanna even goes on to say that in five years she hopes to have a baby with this man!
I'm not blaming the victim. I have no idea what I'd do in her situation...I'd like to think I'd be much stronger than that. I'd like to think my friends and family would be able to help steer me in the right direction. I'd like to think I'd seek the help I needed to stand up, dust off and get on with my life. What I do know for sure is that this is a young woman who really had a chance to be a role model for young ladies everywhere. And she failed...miserably.
