Rihanna and Chris Brown are at it again!! No, not the melodramatic and tragic domestic violence and court rooms way, but the gloves have stayed on in the recording studio. I must say, this does not really come as a surprise to me and quite frankly, I just want the music to be GOOD! They were young adults caught up in a twisted situation, yet both were still at the top of their game prior to the 2009 incident; both being molded into a ‘brand’ that neither one were emotionally or maturely ready for. Which could easily explain the violence. Both admittedly have been raised around abuse at one point in their lives, have both been subjected to physical abuse and both have inflicted bodily harm upon other people.
THINK ABOUT IT: The “target audience” for this exact consumer is just the reality of the television shows in households today. People THRIVE in this society on television shows that embody drama, hate, violence and “real-life” problems. This vision is so clear, yet it is so distorted. Music is no different and we are just Flesh. If Chris Brown and Rihanna can’t make amends, then why is Jerry Springer playing in my living room? Seriously, we as an audience of consumers and people of like interest have to have a common understanding, somewhere. I think that we deserve it, too. But seeing as how the media focuses on current and negative issues that draws consumers in; the only way to ever spark a change means this “product” that they keep forcing upon us has got to be depleted with positivity and creativity. How do you do that? You take a stand! Chris Brown and “ROBYN” the name he used to tweet her on her birthday and Rihanna’s reply saying, “Thanks!” IS taking a stand! I am Proud of them for being Adults and showing people who have those SAME problems everyday and those people who have been in love and made mistakes that there is such thing as Class, Civility, and Respect. That this should not come in any way or form a negative or controversial subject of popular interest.
Leave Breezy and Robyn alone, they are laughing all the way to the bank either way you slice or dice their past relationship dilemmas.
