Since the ‘incident’ between Chris Brown and Rihanna back in 2009, the nature of the latter’s response remains just as debated as the pair’s reunion earlier on this year.
While some heralded the ‘I don’t give…’ attitude Fenty showcased in her interview with Diane Sawyer months later, there are others who feel the star hasn’t done enough to ‘represent’ women in a similar situation.
Now it seems, Brit Pop legend Annie Lennox shares that viewpoint.
Her remarks on the matter below…
Speaking to The Telegraph she explained:
Here is a young woman who has been through domestic violence and she could become a tremendous spokesperson for that issue but the choice is hers.It’s not up to anybody else to do that.
Of course if she did choose to do that it would be so f*cking powerful but it’s her personal right to choose it or not. We all have our own issues and we have to deal with them in our own way.
This is a tough one, whichever way you look at it.
While Fenty would be doing the world a tremendous favor by speaking out against violence against women, doing so might seem a touch hypocritical- seeing as she and Chris are clearly on the same page again.
But what do you think?
