Rihanna straddles Chris Brown in a new Instagram photo, because of course


Last weekend, Rihanna tweeted a photo of Chris Brown laying face-down in her bed – Bedhead wrote about it because my mindset is “Maybe if I ignore them, they’ll go away.” Unfortunately, my idea hasn’t worked, because Rihanna posted the abovephoto last night with the message “i dont wanna leave!!! Killed it tonight baby!!!” I guess she’s straddling his back? Is that what’s happening? I just spent too much time trying to figure out how Chris was positioned here. It doesn’t matter, though. Chris and Rihanna are back together. They’ve been back together for a while. They were fooling around when he was with Karrueche. And Rihanna fought to get him back. Because she’s an idiot.

Still, Rihanna is UNAPOLOGETIC. And it’s Nobodies Business.

But is it as easy as walking away from this situation, to just shake your head and mutter, “Jesus, Rihanna. I’m done with this”New York Magazine has a thought-provoking piece about the difference between supporting Rihanna and hating Chris Brown. The piece attempts to explain what Rihanna is doing by going back to her abuser, and the pattern that so many abusive relationships follow. It’s interesting, although I think there should be more of an emphasis on making Rihanna (and in a larger view, all young women who are watching Rihanna closely) take responsibility for herself and her actions. It’s not about “nobodies business” – it’s everyone’s business.
