Chris Brown and Rihanna are supposedly in a Santa Monica studio recording a duet. WTF?! Has Rihanna not seen “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” Well, if Tina Turner, Oprah, Jay-Z, her friends, the media, the public outcry, and rational thought can’t help her see the light, maybe if we try to speak her language- music, she’ll realize he’s got to go. So, we’ve compiled a list of hit songs (no pun intended) to inspire Rihanna that we think she and Chris Brown should cover for their duet.
Like everyone else, I’ve been glued to the Chris Brown/Rihanna debacle, and was saddened when I read reports that she might get back together with someone who left her so bruised and battered.
But here’s the thing: loads of couples break up and then make up and sometimes things work out great. But knowing when, and under what circumstances, to forgive and forget is key, and most of us won’t know until we’re thrust into that situation. Here are six scenarios to consider.

S&M is nothing new, and New York’s erstwhile governor may not be the most shining example of conventional sexual appetites, but this account supports anecdotal evidence of a growing sexual trend. Where once spanking, dirty talk, and hair-pulling pushed the limits of casual sexual encounters, choking, face-slapping and spitting are becoming more and more part and parcel of hooking up. What happens in the privacy of the bedroom is a matter of taste, I suppose, but in light of the recent, high profile Chris Brown/Rihanna scandal, you kinda can’t help but wonder whether harmless sex games and real-life violence toward women are connected. What’s permissible behind closed doors might well bear itself out in everyday life. Do you think S&M subconsciously normalizes violence towards women? Keep reading »
