Get ready… my first drama post on B & B. Dive in and give me your take…
There’s been a couple in the news a lot lately. Well, they are no longer a couple but I keep hearing rumblings about the two. Chris Brown and Rihanna. These two names will always be linked together no matter what they do. I don’t care if they never speak to each other again or if one of them moves to Uzbekistan they will forever be linked.
Lately there have been even more rumors swirling that these two have been secretly spending time together. I wouldn’t doubt it. I wouldn’t say it’s the best idea, but I could see it being true. The talks have been heating up even more because both will be performing at the Grammys this weekend. Then to further stir the pot, it’s been reported that the two spent some time together in her dressing room during rehearsal for the show. Chris Brown’s rep maintains that the two are just working on being friends, but people still aren’t buying it.
I have taken a little flack from my peeps because I haven’t been on the “bash Chris Brown” train. I, of course, in no way condone what happened between these two three years ago. I also recognize that it was between these two and it was three years ago. All things considered, I would hope that each would not only learn from their mistakes but also be given the chance to learn from their mistakes.
I had a conversation not too long ago with friends and one started bashing Brown and how his career should be over and they’d never support him again. I was silent in the room, then all eyes were on me. I’m sure they wanted me to chime in and agree. I couldn’t do that. I tend to look at it this way, I wouldn’t want someone bringing up the worse thing I’ve ever done every time they talked about me or saw me. Is that fair? If he was some repeat offender like OJ, Charlie Sheen or Ike Turner then you have more grounds to be disgruntled. That’s not the case.
I wouldn’t be cheering if these two got back together. Let me be clear there. It just seems like asking or begging for trouble. At the same time, who am I to say if either of them have changed. I’m different than I was three years ago. Could they be too? The other question out there is are they responsible for how their younger fans would view them getting back together and what message that would send? Thoughts?
