another sad love song
i'm a pop culture junkie. i talk about yonce like i know her sometimes. i stay updated on the latest celebrity gossip like the next young black professional woman sitting at a desk from 9ish to 5ish with constant internet access. but i think i've had just about enough of...
the chrianna drama.
now rum punch will tell you that when the story first broke i was shocked and amazed. "why c. breezy why" was my first battle cry. i felt like a kid caught in the middle of her parents' divorce...who do i believe, which one do i live with. cause i heart chris brown and rihanna with a passion. i first came to love these two young pop stars during essence fest 08. they headlined for kanye west and when we bought the tickets i was thinking mehhh, me no know if i will like rihanna in person. i ponn'ed the replay and sang along under my umbrella-ella-ella-ella-eh-eh-eh but didn't think she had what it took to perform well on a live stage.
but rihanna brought it. especially when she performed "breaking dishes" my new favorite song by her. and then chris brown hit the stage and his dancing abilities had me screaming like a school girl. twas how my love affair with chrianna began. plus she's a pisces and he has my sister's same birthday. and they so in love. and ya'll know i love love.
but now not so much.
their recent drama round grammy time has been on the tip of everyone's tongue. everybody has an opinion on it. and isn't afriad to share it. publicly. and then retract that opinion 24-48 hours after it's printed. my heart goes out to both of them. and now the felony charges have been handed down. assault and making criminal threats aint no joke.
word is that rihanna isn't going to cooperate. but that never stopped the state of (fill in the blank) from going forward with domestic violence charges before. stay tuned.
