“We don’t have to talk again ever in my life. I just didn’t want to make it more difficult for him professionally. What he did to me was a personal thing—it had nothing to do with his career. Saying he has to be a hundred feet away from me, he can’t perform at awards shows — that definitely made it difficult for him. That was the only thing it was going to change, so I didn’t care. But you can never please people. One minute I’m being too hard, and the next minute I’m a fool because I’m not being hard enough.”
Days before the 53rd annual Grammy Awards, February 13th, Rihanna allowed for the restraining order against Chris Brown to be eased. Chris Brown went to court late January to reduce the restraining order from “stay away” to “do not annoy.”
RapFix turned to the mean, real mean, streets for the fans reactions to what Rihanna had to say on Chris Brown.
“Been a Rihanna fan, (not fanatic), since she first started. Glad to see her grow to a mature, independent woman. I cannot believe you all went out and bought that CONVICTED assaulter’s CD. If he beat your sister/daughter, would you still have ponied up the cash?” an EW commenter said.
“You know, Rihanna says in Rolling Stone & songs she likes it rough and likes to be hit in the bedroom… well then I don’t blame Chris Brown.” @AmberTardcake tweeted.
Then there are the… well, we will just say more opinionated ones.
“I’ve read other excerpts from this article and I must say that she needs some serious help. I wouldn’t be surprised if years from now it was revealed that she enjoyed the beat down she endured. This girl is sick and I feel sorry for any man that she deals with.” Always, Miss Info commenter, said.
“Chris Brown and Rihanna are two separate artists and the past is the past! Let's not keep bringing up the past or these two together. He is done apologizing! This makes Rihanna look so bitter and weak. Lets support them &/or their music!” kasey_babii, MTV commenter, said. “Personally, I love them both. But I dislike Rihanna's live performances. Chris Brown always delivers. He is an amazing actor/rapper/singer/dancer/writer!”
