Rihanna’s Birthday Cake

I’ve never been a huge fan of Rihanna, sure her style is amazing and her songs are catchy, but I have never connected with her enough to buy any of her albums. But, I was a big fan of Chris Brown in high school and I even went to his “Fan Appreciation” (read: good publicity) tour post-Rihanna (and I caught some flack for it from a couple of people), but lately he really has not put out anything I want to listen to either.

What I’m trying to say is that I’m not ride or die for either of them but I’m also not against them. I know everyone has their opinions on them remixing each other’s songs and possibly dating again and I wanted to put my two-cents in. I believe in second chances and if Rihanna is willing to give him a second chance then that’s her business, not ours. I think they are a ridiculously good-looking couple and if they are still in love all these years later (and Chris has gotten his anger issues under control) then I wish them the best. Chris made a mistake, I think he has more than repented for it, so I don’t think it’s fair for anyone to continue throwing it in his face. Everyone makes mistakes and you grow from them and move the eff on.

With that said, I’m kind of obsessed with “Birthday Cake,” because it’s so freaking catchy. It’s been on a constant loop in my mind since it came out yesterday. Give it a listen if you haven’t already!

  1. Did you read the police report? This wasn’t just a slap here or there. He literally beat the **** out of her. There is a huge difference between forgiving someone and recording songs on their new album. Seems like a publicity stunt to me, which would be fine if it didn’t reinforce our rape culture and introduce male dominance to a whole new generation of girls. My 2¢.


  2. I would just like to state that it’s just music, and it’s sad that there is so much importance placed on the lives of two people who have only contributed a few choice music notes/words to our lives…not philanthropy, not world peace, not free education or health care, or even FREEDOM. Like Nicki Minaj just did an entire performance about Exorcism in a country that’s “One nation under GOD”… but no one has ostracized her just yet? Weird.
