It's official. Chris Brown and Rihanna are together again—musically, at least. While Rihanna may have forgiven Chris Brown, who pled guilty to felony assault, others can't forget the startling photo of a battered Rihanna and fear it could happen again. Which begs the question, can an abuser really change?
Jay-Z has been a long-time mentor to Rihanna – he was the one she turned to in 2009 when her then boyfriend, Chris Brown, physically assaulted her before the Grammys. Jay-Z was quite unhappy with the situation then, and he's doubly upset now that the former couple are reportedly hooking up again and collaborated on two songs, "Birthday Cake" and "Turn Up the Music."
These pristinely beautiful people are the royal couple of Sweden... and they just had their first child, a baby girl! Congratulations are in order for Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel!
Recent reports of the professional collaboration between Rihanna and Chris Brown are a little irritating. If Rihanna is this close to Chris Brown, she is in over her head. You cannot be half in and half out of a relationship with destructive men like Brown. Women like Rihanna who are targeted by self-serving or toxic men like Chris Brown have certain qualities that make them more appealing and worthy of a hot pursuit after his fists fly and it all crumbles. It’s hard to find women who tolerate on this level so Brown is driven to get her back on his good side and it looks like he's done a good job.
Appearing Monday on Good Morning America, Jeremy Lin shot down rumors that he was set to go on a date with Kim Kardashian, saying he doesn't think the reality-TV star is his "type." But there are plenty of other single celebrities who might interest the 23-year-old Knicks phenom and Harvard graduate.
We were surprised when Chris Brown was amongst the guests at Rihanna's birthday party at her Beverly Hills home last week but we are even more surprised now that we have heard a remix of her track 'Birthday Cake.' In the song Chris Brown says 'he wants to "f**k" Rihanna.'
One of the biggest controversies surrounding the 54th Grammy Awards was the fact that Chris Brown was allowed to perform on stage, despite the explosive night in 2009 before the Grammys when he physically harmed then-girlfriend Rihanna. (Rihanna also performed on Sunday and chilled with her friend Katy Perry.)
On February 1st, we polled our readers to determine which celebrity needed to break up with their ex the most. We gave them a choice between 5 celebrity exes who have remained friends with one another despite bad breakups, infidelity, divorce and even assault.
They may be the among the most famous and beautiful women in the world, but, like anyone else, even A-list celebs go through the breakup blues. From Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon's retrospective revelations to Jennifer Love Hewitt's pragmatic advice, all of these women are proof that, while breakups may feel like the end of the world, they are really just the beginning to something new.
According to a recent survey we conducted with over 1,300 of our readers, 84 percent agree that a breakup is the perfect opportunity for self-improvement, and 64 percent do so by changing something about their appearance. You may call that a makeover, but hunny, it's really a "breakover."
We know holding on to an old flame isn't a healthy thing to do, but as our new Break Up With Your Ex survey reveals, it takes most people months to get over an ex. This also applies in CelebLand, where celebrities seem to have more splits to their names than hit records or box office successes.
Today, we are certain of two things: 1. Censoring the web with the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) needs to be fought against, and 2. Rihanna and Chris Brown should not be hooking up.
Personally, we are ecstatic to find out that Rihanna has been named the "Sexiest Woman Alive" this year by Esquire. (How do we get named sexiest woman)? For a woman who is naturally sexual, it isn't hard to tell why they would pick the singer—she's spent the whole summer steaming up stages across the world. At just 16, Rihanna moved to the U.S. from Barbados. Now, 23, she has a lot behind her, including a ton of hit singles and an unhealthy, abusive relationship with Chris Brown that ended just two years ago (it's really only been two years?)
As a survivor of domestic violence, this is a subject close to my heart, and it leads me to asks questions like: - What responsibility does Hollywood have for depicting healthy relationships? - Do they accurately represent abusive relationships? You’ve undoubtedly seen the headlines and read the stories, as there are cases upon cases of such violence.
