Rihanna is to marry Chris Brown having been beaten by him? http://gigulate.com/artist/Rihanna
stars than they should be.
but in this case, if you can't be serious, just shut the fuck up.

MUST TRY HARDER
Which is crazy fucked up.
The idea that she'd be doing this for publicity is ludicrous.
What message does marriage usually send, sean?
at the end of the day they are just a couple of probably very naive people barely (or in his case not) out of their teens
it's what happens most of the time in most cases of (wife) battery, and if she weren't famous, they'd probably never consider taking it to court without her co-operation. Seeing that she has the option of never seeing him again if she so chooses, and taking into account that he has to hire a PR type to "crisis manage", there is at least a vague chance that it was "only" a one-off thing... So her choice, and she should probably have made a different one. Would have sent a better message to the world, too.
would you complain if he hit you back?
“It has been formally announced that Rhianna is to marry Chris Brown having been beaten by him.”
It's probably all out of fear. You know, maybe she blames herself, that she *deserved* to get him and that he did it because he loved her? I mean, she didn't press charges, did she? He's probably beat her delirious and into a state of fear. Poor Rihanna, this'll probably kill her but make an amazing movie :(
to be some sort of poster child for domestic abuse survivors etc, when I imagine she just wants to forget about it, hence her brushing it under the carpet reaction.
I UNDERSTAND POP STAR I DO
She has a whole load of baggage carrying abuse survivors living off a diet of invites to be on Oprah's couch and dime-a-dozen, no-mark TV "celeb" pyschologists pinning their hopes on her, despite the fact none of them really know what went on. Leave the poor woman be.
I UNDERSTAND ROYTER I DO
as rtoas said above, it does happen a lot of the time in domestic abuse cases. my mum used to spend a lot of time at a womans home in Wicklow, as she was on the committee there, and she'd come back and tell us stories of men beating down the doors, screaming outside, damaging cars and so on, just to get to their wives, and a lot would go back to these psychos. it's a psychological thing also, the women may think they brought it on themselves - even though they know what the man is doing is wrong, they love them and want to think the best of them. 'it was a one off, he won't do it again, he does it because he loves me SO much he can't control himself, he's sorry' and so on. in this case i'd go so far as to say i'm sure some kind of 'i love you, marry me, that's how much i love you and how much i want to show that i'll never do it again' went on. i would hope that this incident was a one off and that it will never happen again, but it's most likely not. he obviously has some kind of hold over her in some way and at the end of the day it's her decision, right or wrong. no doubt they'll split up in a horrific way in a few years.
"DO YOU LIKE CHRIS BROWN? YES NO"
with a shit eating grin, while she recoils in terror, reliving the whole nightmare. Then go on radio saying "Yeah, bitch needs to recognise! AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Jus' kiddin', sweetie, luv ya really!"
What went on was between them. If she can forgive him, that it's between them.
Obviously I think he's a cunt, but it ain't got shit to do with me
