Report : Def Jam Refuse To Support Rihanna’s ‘Birthday Cake’

Published: Tuesday 21st Feb 2012 by David

Much to the horror of Chris Brown nay sayers, the reports of a duet between he and ex girlfriend Rihanna were confirmed last night, with the release of two numbers featuring the pair.

Lending their talents to the other’s respective ‘Turn The Music Up‘ and ‘Birthday Cake’, the stars have come under fire from those against their reunion, following their explosive split back in 2009.

Now, before the negative press they are set to receive, Rihanna’s label Def Jam have reportedly taken a stand against the star.

By refusing to put ‘Cake’ on Itunes.

Details below…

According to HM, Fenty released ‘Cake’ against her label’s wishes to, as the source claims, ‘prove a point’.

This, thwarting her chances of going to #1 with the controversial release and an indicator of the damage control the company may have to enforce if  her latest LP, ‘Talk That Talk’ suffers as a result of her decision.

Fact of the matter is, this isn’t a good look.

Because, while her fans may try to deny it, her actions wreak of desperation.So blinded by her ‘I don’t give a f*ck’ attitude, she can’t see that she has everything to lose by going ahead with Brown’s feature.

For, while Brown’s label will revel in the attention this is raking in,  Rihanna cannot afford to bite the hand that funds her.

Either way, we’d hate to be there when she’s forced to explain her actions to her superiors, and learn what the repercussions might be.

    Chris has everything to lose.Rihanna has a team,she is apart of a crew and roc family.

    What does chris has? His crying mother at the Larry King show and her stupid statements???

    Well chris,a ni99a doesnt learn the first time to not play with ppl bigger than him,he never will

  11. Lifee February 21, 2012

    If the song was about FORGIVENESS or APOLOGETIC then it would make things better but the fact they all they are talking about it F******? Ch…..

    I hope Chris vocals were really worth it, Ri. We all know she did it out of SHOCK VALUE not because she forgives him and like someone said on another blog, Chris needs controversy. Just like how he smashed the chair at GMA (then hours later was out with all smiles like nothing happened) and how he leaked the nude pictures and ironically even referenced it on Look At Me Now and now THIS. Sad act of desperation on both parts but a even sadder part on RIhannas.

  12. Ass February 21, 2012

    Like I said. Rih is black and a woman. “They” won’t let you forget it. Take a breath an reload. Smh, it’s already starting boo…, this is just the beginning.

  13. YOOSONDALOOSE February 21, 2012

    Good, don’t think they should release it.
    It is a nice remix that is it, shouldn’t be anything more.

    Good move, no release, but the people know they are okay with each other.

  14. Aunt Jackie February 21, 2012

    THIS IS A STUNT! CB and Rihanna are both wack for trying to get those songs to go #1. Rihanna looses more than CB, but they both loose.

  15. mstammyh February 21, 2012

    record companies dont care about rhianna ,they would release the tape of the chris/riri beating if they had it, its all about the money to them ….def jam about to be richer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Candace February 21, 2012

    Drop that b****! She’s not a decent singer and there are people way more talent, likable and actually live and breathe MUSIC (not drama). The girl has done everything to say she doesnt want this anymore, give it to someone who deserves it.

  17. Que February 21, 2012

    I think rihanna is in more trouble than ppl (her stans) realize .. Rihanna isn’t an artist she’s a popstar and there’s a BIG difference .. Rihanna could never be independent or do lil club gigs with her amazing voice and amazing song catalouge because she doesn’t have any of that LOL rihanna needs the million dollar bugdet and multimillion dollar label behind her to pop and that’s clear .. Look at her career .. They say dnt bite the hand that feeds u and rihanna bit hard!! But good for def jam for havin a lil integrity tho cuz they could of made shitloads of money off of puttin this on itunes .. good for them!

  18. Q. Calloway February 21, 2012

    stop saying if it is a bad or good look for either artist. at the end of the day both remixes are fire you i give credit when credit is due and it is due. these two make good music together. regardless of what happened 3 years ago yeap it happened no one is denying that but it happened three years ago. i know many fans of rihanna dont support either remix or let alone forgive chris brown but on the flip side many of her friends support her and her decision. rihanna is a grown ass woman she knows exactly what she was doing and what make be the consequences so only time will tell, im sure rihanna will be ok either way. there will be both negative and positive feedback but like i said she will be ok

  19. MOBWIFE February 21, 2012

    @Sam/TGJ please this is total bullsh**!

    Why can’t these two YOUNG BLACK PEOPLE move the F*Ck ON from 1 fight they engaged in with each other 3 YEARS AGO? That’s the real question here! I doubt if this “INSIDER” even exists!

    I’m not sure why the GIF of Beyonce was needed? I like that they are trying to force the world to F*CKING MOVE ON ALREADY!

  20. DEDE February 21, 2012

    LOL …..i knew it and true that if it wasn’t about f****** maybe it would have been acceptable. If she made a similar song to Luther V and M.C’s endless love Or Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers’s island in the streams, maybe people would feel soryy but it just had to be about f****** SMH we gotta do better people

  21. Kingphoenix February 21, 2012

    My heart really goes out to Rihanna…this whole things shows that she is not mentally stable after the whole thing. I already knew Chris wasn’t after all that bad behavior and twitter rants, but now i see that they both have been immenseling damaged by the incident…They both need true love and support in their lives and a lot of healing…The first thing is that they need how to learn to love their individual selves, because no one with true self love would put themselves through self destruction like this…

  22. Aunt Jackie February 21, 2012

    @ Mobwife

    Actually, people don’t really care all that much. If they wanted the world to move on they would release statements. NOT make a song about F*cking eachother and dancing in a club. That’s CONTROVERSY BAITING. So stop.

  23. yellow.mellow February 21, 2012

    Like I said in the other post: Record labels own you once you’ve signed on the dotted line. Rihanna is a fool because the “I don’t give a eff” attitude IS FAKE. She does care. Will she be “I don’t give a eff” when she starts making less money? When her sales drop? When Chris beats her again? NOOO.

    Funny how this chick was fighting with Chris in the car that night over him supposedly cheating. Yet she was willing to be his side chick 4 a minute? Hypocrite.

    Roc Nation sort this mess out she’s embarrassing ya’ll

  24. haterzstaypressed February 21, 2012

    The rumor of Def Jam not supporting it started with Sandra Rose @ sandrarose(dot)com days ago. She has an inside track at Def Jam. The rumor appears to be true for now. But knowing industry politics, Def Jam will probably release it. Money is the bottom line and if this remix is blowing up, it would be foolish not to release it.

  25. Lax February 21, 2012

    @ASS,,,WHUT IS VERY UPSET LEAVE THAT OFC. ALONG
    This is not a laughting matter seeing that people just want to
    throw their careers down the toliet but at the end of the day many
    of you could care less about Rihanna and so many have got
    something to say about how her Career is going to go when in
    Fact…You never appreciated Rihanna for her work in the first dam place
    Many are always saying how talentless Rihanna is and how everybody and their cat
    is better,,,And the GRAPE DON’T GIVE A DAM,,, AND THE PICTURE OF BEYONCE SMILING WAS GREAT TO USE LAST YEAR OR LAST WEEK FOR THAT MATTER BECAUSE LIKE I SAID EVEN MICKEY MOUSE IS BETTER THAN RIHANNA IS AND HAVE BEEN THUS FAR, IF YOU LET MANY OF YOU TELL IT AND TRYING TO SAY THAT YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT RIHANNA’S CAREER IS BULL S***, STRAIGHT UP.

  26. Candace February 21, 2012

    I don’t care if Rihanna wants to be back with CB. I could really care less about her getting that ass beat or not. If she wants to become the spokeswoman for the NDVH or “Tard-Star”. I’m sick of her antics. All things come to an end and hopefully by next year, we;ll be seeing the chick on “Unsung” oh VH1’s “Where Are They Now?”

  27. Lax February 21, 2012

    At this point in Rihanna’s Career and Life she can either
    Wallow in self pity or take RESPONSIBLITY For her life
    and step up to the plate and take Charge of Her Life
    And Career, head on. Win, Lose or Draw.

    Well, it’s no loss to the world. There are enough over-sexualized songs all over the place, so this is doing us all a favour. Rihanna needs to think about her life.

    P.S. – if Jay-Z was sooooo powerful Chris would have never came back in the music biz period, You all are clowns lol

  39. JAKE February 21, 2012

    OH PLEASE!!! EVERYBODY WHO IS CONDEMNING THE SONG AND RIHANNA NEED TO SHUT THE F*** UP!!!

    I’m not particularly a Rihanna fan, or a Christ Brown fan, but it’s been over 3 years now. Chris has paid his dues, apologised and if Rihanna can move on and accept him, then who are we to sit behind are computer screens and judge him? She’s clearly over it, so let’s all move on shall we? Nor does this mean they’re getting back together, they collaborated on a track, maybe it’s just a friendly gesture to show that what happened is in the past! He did a terrible thing and paid for it. As for the lyrics, clearly it’s not high on Rihanna’s agenda to make child-friendly lyrics. Some people like to listen to songs about s**! Not all music has to be bubblegum pop. If you don’t like your child listening to it, don’t let them. Should we not allow violent movies either, because little kids may see them and be influenced?

    GET A DAMN GRIP!!!

    Some random on twitter said def jam won’t put it on itunes? Why would they Rihanna just submitted talk that talk to the radios. Chris just submitted TUTM to the radios why would they mess up the flow by telling the fans to buy the remixes instead?

    When you don’t have raw talent,, your resort to such antics of desperation to sell your product!!! I knew the was going to happen, and I’m glad that Def Jam is having some moral, and professorial integrity not to push this single out!!! Rhianna and Chris Brown may as well call it quits because real music is coming back, an artist like them are fading as the days goes by!!! These two cannot dominate the music scene forever! Adele won six Grammy’s for making an “REAL ALBUM” ! The Grammy’s that Rhianna has are piggy backed off another artist, CB’s Grammy’s come out of pity, because we all know that his music is s***!!! Thank you Def Jam for taking a stance against this b******* song!!

  44. TR February 21, 2012

    I actually agree with THIS assesment Sam. This whole ‘IDGAF, I do what I want’, attitude is so rudimentary, dumb, and BASIC!! If she’s not careful it may..(maybe she’s already crossed that bridge) no longer be ‘cute’, and instead become off-puting.

    What arttists, and the stans who gass them up, and kiss thier ass fail to realize is that although your life should not be dictated by anyone, there still is a responsiblity, or ‘incentive’..better word to remain on the up-and up with the base that MADE YOU IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!
    This is exactly why stans are worse then haters…they will have artists believing that no matter what they do, say, or behave, that is is acceptable, and w/o repercussions–when those very same ppl will drop you like a bad habit when ur no longer hot!!

    Rihanna is HOT, she’s not established yet to diffuse a major career-crisis(not that this will turn out to be). But she’s too far up her own ass, a reality check is needed!!

    Your very presumptuous!! Don’t assume s*** about me that I haven’t said. Thanks

    You are very presumptuous!!! By the way way pretty much all your assumptions are wrong. >>>>>>>>

    In 5 years time when Rihanna and her drama have dried up and when Chris Brown is with another chick, she will look back in shame and horror.

    You’re right. I don’t know where TGJ is getting their stories BUT so far so good. Alot of people were saying how good both remixes are. I’m sure Jay-Z really don’t care about the Chris brown feature. Jay-Z NEVER came out to the public to state how he felt about chris brown. The media spoke for him. Rihanna will be good and so will chris brown.

    Well it’s their loss because the fans are DLing the song and nobody’s getting any money off it now. Isn’t DefJam supposed to be about business. And I thought a business was about making money

  58. WHUT February 21, 2012

    Why would you think I’m upset @Lax? I already said I wasn’t plenty of times. currently working and as calm as a monk tbh.

    So you’re trying to tell me a label as big as DefJam and management supposedly as big as RocNation knew absolutely nothing about this release and this whole thing is all Rihanna. Yup I’m sorry but that’s just complete foolishness and this is from someone who thinks she’s been a complete idiot.

    Lets go back a sec. This rumor was first placed into people’s consciousness through Da Internz talking to MTV saying the collab was gonna shock the world. Right, and from the moment that statement went viral 75% of her fanbase were paranoid as hell about it being Chris on the track. I know personally also of many sending long emails and also tweets etc to DefJam and other parties involved warning against the possibility of him being on the track and the backlash of it towards her…….all week.

    Then’s there’s the incident when the fan tweeted Da Internz (who turned out to be bold faced liars) who denied he was even on the track at all. That denial tweet got alot of traction on non-hating blogs and forums alike. So you mean to tell me no one in DefJam noticed that at all? Well apparently not cause DefJam the staunch opponents and victims in this all along then gave us a whopping 5 or so days of complete utter silence. Even tho they were bombarded with more emails etc. Da Internz also deleted their tweet.

    Then billboard outright came out and said chick is f****** with her career if she does this. Billboard aren’t small time and yet and still not a word from DefJam or Rocnation.

    So all things considered, I’m supposed to sit here and believe DefJam and RocNation are purely competent and innocent in this whole saga, were against this from the get go and this is all Rihanna’s doing. Uh hum, Right you can miss me with that . The real is in no way was this a good idea at all for her (their only major artist) and yet and still her management and DefJam allowed her to go into the studio and record this mess. They had to have some point been “for it” and even if they supposedly came to their senses they made no bones about all the backlash she was already receiving pre song release when people didn’t even know for sure he was on the track. They are incompetent simple as and they and she will deal with the consequences.

  61. Aunt Jackie February 21, 2012

    @ Whut

    Roc Nation & Def Jam knew. It’s a risky publicity student for an album that isn’t doing so well (600k out here in the states, which is a flop). It’s a trade off with CB, who has a new album to promote. But what I don’t get is the amount of risk for the supposed reward. That’s where Rihanna & CB come in, as individuals. They wanted it it for publicity reasons, but it’s also tied up in personal “Look at us! We don’t give a f***!” feelings. People just aren’t THAT invested in Chrihanna, but I think, they think the world is. People were just ready to move on, but instead of letting the public, they took it back to 2009. Come on now folks. Wise up.

  62. CBE February 21, 2012

    Chris brown uuurgh how could you?

    I understand people saying he is using this situation to prove to the public they are over 2009 but this comes with generating publicity as well as if he needed it!

    Disappointed in chris especially him doing a song with her for publicity,DO YOU!He preaches of being different but goes out and throws this stunt for attentio and album sales,Teambreezy will take care of that.I think sometimes he thinks we fools(maybe some of TB) his fans help him comeback and now does this…personally I like when people hate him and he winning but now he busy kissing ass.

    This is my first negative CB rant since I became a fan.

  65. MISHKA February 21, 2012

    If this statement is true, well, here come not my 2 but my 50 cents… *YIKES!*

    Rihanna, I know 4 sure things about you and you need to know them as well:
    1. You sing like a frog
    2. You’re a woman
    3. You’re a BLACK woman
    4. You’re an non-American Black Woman.

    Knowing that, how can you afford to pee in your food?

    Chris Brown, in spite of everything is an all-American Black Man. He will ALWAYS find a way to hustle, like R. Kelly, Tiger Woods did before him. R. Kelly sang at Whitney’s homegoing and nobody had sh-t to say about that.

    Whitney is no longer with us but Bobby is on tour with New Edition. Britney Spears is cray-cray but K-Fed is eating his child support away with his longtime girlfriend.

    Lesson from the story : As a female I can admit it, this is a MAN’s world and as a woman if you choose the wrong battle, you’re gonna fall down the wrong path and we’ll be mourning at your funeral sooner than we should!

    You’re not Erykah Badu, Rihanna. You don’t write your songs, you don’t produce and on top of all, you sing like an amphibian. You can’t act like you owned Def Jam, you’re just an employee.

    Don’t get fooled by your gay fanbase who think Birthday Cake is the 2012’s “Vogue”. The song ain’t all that. Chris and you could have recorded a meaningful song about forgiveness or raising awareness on illiteracy, obesity or something but you wanted something to have “fun”. Well at least, Chris is having fun. He got a main chick, a mistress, a grammy and a lot of twithoes.

    I’m more of a Chris fan but as a fellow female, I had to tell you Rihanna : you played yourself on this. And you gonna learn.

  66. CBE February 21, 2012

    @Aunt Jackie

    AGREED with evertyhing you said! they were stupid here and think the world would embrace their dont give a f*** attitude but I am more worried about CB he pisses me off coz this controversy was dying down and now his fans have alot of work to do again!

  67. keri hilson 2012 album coming soon February 21, 2012

    rihanna should leave def jam and start her own label

  68. JER February 21, 2012

    I love all the “Rihanna Fans” that are in an uproar AKA the same BeYAWNce stans riding hard on Rihanna’s d*** in every blog, forum, message board, article on the internet. Oldest trick in the book. A few BeYAWNce stans at the public library hating because they have LITERALLY NOTHING ELSE TO DO but go online and talk s*** about Rihanna, make multiple names, troll a dozen websites. YOU ARE NOT RIHANNA. No one asked your opinion on her battle with domestic violence. She recorded a song with a man that beat the s*** out of her. It’s a TRIUMPH for woman everywhere that Chris Brown is NOT A MONSTER, and Rihanna is NOT A VICTIM. F****** idiots i swear. Idiots with public library internet. B**** when you can pay all your own bills, then you can have an opinion.

Like dnt u idiots get that … All week they both have been tweetin lil things like “imma do whatever yup u kno this” or other lil things wen the rumors began to heat up… Chris brown is immature and we all kno that from his monthly twitter rants but the fact that rihanna was playing coy and actually using an incident in which she could of been killed!! (We all saw the pics it wasn’t a slap he went to town on her face) to sell a song about f****** that same guy is so gross I can’t even believe it .. If they did the song and were like okay guys me and chris have talked and its about the music or put any statemennt together than anyone over the age of 12 could create then I would be like whatever but the tacky way they went about it .. #icant and good for def jam .. I know most of u rihanna stans are younger than she is so I dnt expect very much from u in terms of seeing a situation for what it is so it is what it is I guess but again good for def jam for not makin money off this nonsense .. Rihnna and chris wana get back together get married and have 10 kids go for it but to use a situation that almost killed her and almost kils girls everyday to aid a failing cd is the epitome of b*******

    @kevin YASSSSSSSSSSS!!! U better f****** PREACH! That last sentence >>>>>>>> …. Ppl really just don’t get it

  73. kody3x February 21, 2012

    still disapointed in chris why would he do these songs with her he does not benefit from this only the crazy b**** benefits

  74. commanderofthedancefloor February 21, 2012

    it seems not everyones ducks are in a row!!!

    first def jam actually retweeted the link so if they didnt support it then why would they do it?? also @KEVIN umm maybe if you looked at a few more tweets by riri and chris you would see him saying it doesnt matter what people say, we do this for the music!! exactly like that, isnt that the same line that you were looking for so i guess after you go look it up you would be alright with the situation! well that is good to know!!

    so far even though its only been a day the only backlash i have seen is from fans!

    OH OH OH OH please go too http://www.bet.com/news/music/2012/02/21/chris-brown-and-rihanna-back-together-musically.html

    they even got some good press!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! funny that it is from the black media! lol .

  75. KelpMeh February 21, 2012

    Wow, who’d have thought someone as “idgaf” as Rihanna would allow herself to be come a walking statistic. One she couldn’t help, being a victim of domestic violence…but the second one, going back to the abuser or even just continuing to associate with him… smh.

    it’s her life and her career though. I tihk she’s insanely insecure, but the black media is doing a good job at encouraging this behaviour for whatever reason. I’m sure they will be performing live together at the BET Awards…

  76. I&I(yardie) February 21, 2012

    @ CBE
    “CB he pisses me off coz this controversy was dying down and now his fans have alot of work to do again!”

    not this fan, I will just sit back and watch how this saga unfolds.

    This stunt is a big F** U from Rihanna to the CB haters who had something to say at/after the grammys and the sad part of it is they might not even last if they decide to get back together.

  77. I’m just sayin February 21, 2012

    @Jer

    You are on pressed ass person!!! You can’t formulate one single comment without the mention of Beyonce. You so pressed you can’t even think straight. How in the hell are you going to say these are Beyonce stans hiding as the navy hating??? Try reading @Whut @Lax @yellowgorilla they all feel a certain way about this remix, not only on this post but the posts from earlier today. Reading is fundamental.

  78. Ikim February 21, 2012

    I think this should be everyone’s last post on these two! Lets forget about them for 3 days. (sorry Sam!) who knows, they mite put out a sextape.

    Let’s not pretend this is about tthe music or their relationship or even about her makin a point… It’s about the CASH!! And their cash isn’t coming from nothing.
    Everytime singles get to number one, they gets a fat cheque!!! Her/ his stans/ navy/ team breezy/ and everyone inbetween or against , are geting paid minimum wage…

    Let that thought wonder for a moment…. I have to go now and make dinner for my husband. He’ll be home soon and if I don’t hav his dinner ready he’ll… He’s coming…

  79. Ass February 21, 2012

    .@LAX

    You need to learn to read before you come after someone.

    1) I said I like Rihanna
    2) I said I liked the remix(despite the person she did it with.
    3) in all the posts I said the media would be coming for her. I said I could care less about her personal life.

    So I would like you to pull receipts of me saying negative things about Rihanna.

    I like her. I just feel this decision was @ best questionable. So I don’t know what your beef is.

  80. Ass February 21, 2012

    .@LAX

    I also said I would continue to support her as long as the music is good.

    So I’m confused as to what your hot about. But it’s whatever. Pfff

    Respond if you want. Im done. I don’t have the interest to argue with someone who does not read someone’s statement, but attacks someone based on ignorance.

    No offense but you jumped the gun.

    RELEASE DAT GOD DAYYUM SONG.

  82. jazzy February 21, 2012

    Why does it matter wat they do…if they moved on from that situation so should every one else…if this hurts them in there careers then its there problem..get over iy

  83. jessica February 21, 2012

    So are we supposed to believe her label didn’t know about these songs. Yeah right. If rihanna is ok with chris then I am too. Its not like he beats up women everyday. He did it once and he paid for it.

  84. T February 21, 2012

    I think the Fans including me are cool with the songs and them making music together. It comes down to how the media responds to it and activist groups, if the radio stations want to play it, if upcoming award shows want them to perform together. Also if there would be a Music video, I dont see a PG 13 video for cake from looking at Rihannas Past works. so the way they execute this material will determine it’s success. if they approach promotion and visuals with a F*** Y** attitude, it could back fire. (No interviews for either artist (avoid dumb question that start media rants), no twitter rants, no taking shots at the media and haters through performances and music videos) Promote their music, get a along and show people how to handle the situation like grown ups. simple answer to a dumb question “we have moved on from the past and we enjoy making music together”.

  85. Vegas Girl February 22, 2012

    Where exactly did that “source” get their info from? There is absolutely NO WAY that Def Jam didn’t know about the remix, hell the public knew about the remix. More than likely def jam owns the masters to ALL of Rihanna’s material, so she couldn’t even release the song to the public without their co sign. The song basically belongs to them and they have massive control over the “distribution” of the song. And someone posting above was absolutely correct, Roc Nation has this remix mentioned on their twitter, so the whole “Jay Z wouldn’t allow this ” angle is moot.

    BTW, Birhday cake remix ( # 1 song on he countdown that i heard) is already on the radio here in Vegas which could NEVER happen without Def Jams consent….period.

  86. Vegas Girl February 22, 2012

    *the. Not he

  87. Troybenz February 22, 2012

    who gives a f*** they made 2 songs together ugh why is rihanna stupid for making a song with her ex is her business let her do what she wants

    im glad that they made 2 remixes together and if i was def jam i just would have put it on itunes and fyi dont think that they are together and even if they are if my favorite singer put his hands on this beautiful girl whos also my favorite singerr then i will no have respect for him but its ok now chris brown and rihanna all day

  88. The Music Junkie February 22, 2012

    I think that Rihanna should begin to take herself and her art more seriously, being 24 years of age and singing about #CAKECAKECAKE with a man who abused you was always going to be questionable.
    I think that it is commendable that she forgives him and wants to express this to the public, but the songs released SUCK BALLS, they have no sprit, no emotion, their just singing about s** and party…. LAME!

  89. TheOuyonB February 22, 2012

    Umm.. TGJ, there won’t be any repercussions. Rhianna is one of the biggest acts and most prominent artists signed to Def Jam, who has clearly seen better days in the area of successful labels. She is bringing in waaaay too much money for them and they are FULLY aware of it. At this stage in her career, she is definitely calling the shots and I can guarantee you nothing major will become of this issue.

  90. Eric February 22, 2012

    What people fail to realize is that 2.5 years ago Rihanna did an interview stating how she was so happy she could be the voice for many people out there in abusive relationships and how she is now a role model of things do get better if you get out of that relationship. Well….She VOICED that she was the role model so she has a certain reputation to live up to. NOW she is going back to this d***** bag??!! What kind of example is that setting for everyone in abusive relationships? That it’s ok to go back to someone who almost killed you? That it’s ok (as long as you forgive that person) they wont do it again? WAKE UP PEOPLE!! Love or Hate Rihanna, this is bigger than the music. This is about life and setting examples. She is making a horrible choice! Maybe she is trying to rebel against everything and everyone… I just hope Chris doesn’t beat her like last time because if he does, I have a feeling it will be worse! I am ASHAMED to say that Chris is from the same city as I am. And I have lost respect for Rihanna!

  91. Grab8 February 22, 2012

    Burp*

    Even her record label is dysfunctional.

  92. TIMLAPIA February 23, 2012
