Rihanna & Chris Brown Are Telling Their Fans, ‘We’re Back Together,’ In The Most Powerful Way They Can — With Their Music
Rihanna and Chris Brown gave what they saw as a birthday present to their fans yesterday — the release of remixes of two of their songs, which tell us why they are so in love again.It was Rihanna’s birthday yesterday, Feb. 20, and the birthday girl couldn’t wait to make it a special day in a way that no one would ever have foreseen three years ago, after then-boyfriend Chris Brown subjected her to brutal beating.
But first, Chris Brown tweeted a birthday message to the woman he clearly still loves, “Happy Birthday ROBYN!” to which she replied: “Thanks!”
Then came the big gift — first Rihanna tweeted her remix of “Birthday Cake” with Chris on vocals and then tweeted the remix of Chris Brown’s new single “Turn Up the Music” which she had lent her vocals, too.
The message couldn’t have been clearer to the world: we’re a couple again and we’re saying it in the strongest way that we know how — through our music.
Chris Brown’s mother/manager Joyce Hawkins is absolutely echoing that message.
“Leave those young people alone!!! Let them live their lives and go live yours!!!” she tweeted yesterday, Feb. 20, on Rihanna’s birthday.
Well forgiving and moving on is just fine, but let’s sure pray that this pair has both had enough counseling — individually and together — to truly move on and not end up back in an abusive relationship.
Let’s hope lust hasn’t displaced every shred of common sense.
“They’re both hot for each other. Sexually attracted, it’s obvious that they want to be together again,” says Relationship Expert to the Stars, Dr. Gilda Carle. “And make-up sex is the hottest you can get. But let’s hope that he’s learned in therapy how to control his temper and that she’s learned not to push his hot buttons.”
So the question is: does “making it right” only have to do with satisfying their lust or is it about also making their whole relationship “right”?
For both their sakes — their health and their careers — it better be the whole relationship ?
Rihanna certainly seems to believe so. Her last words on Chris’s song couldn’t be clearer: “I love you baby.”
