Rihanna Back with Chris Brown? Nooooo!
The most horrifying news since Chris Brown beat Rihanna and left her unconscious is the report that the two may be back together again! Is nothing learned from the past? Are we to assume that some apologetic phone calls and a perfunctory attempt at anger management are all that's needed for a touching reunion, with tears rolling down Rihanna's various welts and scabs? Are we supposed to rejoice over the positive career effects of this reckless reteaming, as we were intended to do when Hillary Clinton stood by her man despite that public humiliation? Are we surprised that Sean Combs seems to be the force behind this beautiful bash for the basher and bashee? And most importantly: What's love got to do with it?
