Rihanna & Chris Brown Release Not One, But Two Loathsome Songs

Well, the moment we — or at least I – have been dreading has arrive. Tonight, Rihanna and Chris Brown released not one, but two songs they worked on together: Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” remix, on which Chris Brown makes a cameo, and Brown’s new song “Turn Up The Music,” which features Rihanna. The former is especially stomach-turning, as it has Brown crooning, “Girl I wanna fuck you right now / Been a long time I’ve been missing your body / Let me turn the lights down / When I go down it’s a private party.” You can listen to both songs after the jump. I’m headed to the bathroom to vomit. Keep reading »

When the internet started to buzz with the rumor that Rihanna had invited Chris Brown to guest on the remix of her song “Birthday Cake,” my instant reaction was disbelief. She wouldn’t… I thought. Sure, there had been signs that Rihanna had rekindled a bit of a friendship with her ex, who famously beat her to the point of being hospitalized in 2009, but to collaborate with him? A recent video for the song “We Found Love” seemed to reference the unhealthy and abusive nature of that relationship — surely the next step wouldn’t be to make music with the guy?

Alas, it appears the rumors are true. The song is set to be released this week [UPDATE: Two songs have been released, which you can listen to here.] and it’s all but confirmed that Brown appears on the track, allegedly recorded without her label knowing about it. (Brown has also hinted that Rihanna appears on the upcoming remix of “Turn Up The Music.”) Rihanna has tweeted a number of messages that suggest she’s aware of the negative response the collaboration is garnering; “Go head talk shit…its all in da paper!!! Lemme grab my dick while ya sit on top!!!” she wrote late last week. Sigh. She can be dismissive of the criticism, but I am going to do my best not to be dismissive of her in mine. Keep reading »

  • Chris Brown denies he tried to pick up a lady with the “joke” line “I promise I won’t beat you.” As much as I am sympathetic to celebs having crap made up about them, I genuinely, 100 percent believe that Chris Brown is so immature that he would have said really this. [PopCrush]

Why Do Women Love Chris Brown?

Chris Brown photo

Yesterday, I wrote this throwaway post about how Chris Brown said “fuck the haters!” in which I pointed out that people don’t hate him because he was a scrappy underdog, they hate him because he beat his ex-girlfriend and that police reports made it very clear that he was trying to kill her. And then I got this e-mail from a woman:

Hi. I just wanted you to know that this is bullying . Chris brown made a mistake which he has apologized and is reaping the consequences for those actions. Let the man live his life before he decides to do something drastic that he thinks will get everyone’s off his back. Your no better than people who bully others because they’re gay or different.  You need to look into the NoH8 (no hate) campaign to learn something.

And then I took a second and thought “I didn’t know that the lobotomobile was making its rounds again.” Read more…

  • What? No. Just no. A woman in the Grammy gift lounge tells Us Weekly that Chris Brown approached her and asked, “Can I get your number?

A recent segment on NPR about the rehabilitation of Chris Brown’s career is cause for alarm.  No, not because we should care about Chris Brown’s career as a pop singer — but because his young (mostly female) fans, as fervent as ever, continue to support him not only as an artist but as a person. 

After his brutal beating of his then girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, one would hope that young people would place responsibility for the violence squarely on Chris Brown. But that’s not the case. Brown’s young, female fans, who continue to support him, blamed Rihanna then and still blame her now for the violence he inflicted upon her. One young fan interviewed by NPR outside of one of Brown’s recent concerts said of the incident, “Obviously she played a part in getting beat, or whatever … However you want to put it.” Keep reading »

Neither Rihanna nor Brown mentioned the other by name. Brown tweeted yesterday, “Love U more than u know!” and just two minutes later, Rihanna appeared to respond, tweeting, “I’ll always love u #1LOVE.” Read more…
