I can officially say Im a Rihanna stan again, she hasnt made me this happy since Disturbia was released.
Yeah. I don't totally agree with this at all, but I kind of respect her in this weird way for having the audacity to this. And it's totally genuine too, I haven't one way or the other about her since the beginning of GGGB when I stopped stanning for her.
I hope the Grammys never nominate her again, I understood why they blacklisted Chris like they did but it's only fair that they blacklist her as well after this. This is a complete slap in the face to those who rooted for her.
The Navy had no shame before so I don't see why they are jumping ship now.
But she didn't collaborate on not one, but TWO songs with her abuser before this (post-beating). If you didn't stan (and I mean really stan) for Rihanna before this, you wouldn't understand how many of us feel. It's a feeling of betrayal. All of this over some lousy dick and a ****** #1 single. She's losing so much respect as we speak. She will never be taken seriously again. And Christopher WILL assault her again. I love her and want what's best for her, and that's why I'm upset. It's not even so much the fact that she collaborated with him. But they're using this for publicity, and that's just so disgusting and tacky. Where is her self respect? Where is her dignity? Let me put it to you this way: imagine Hilary being beaten to a bloody pulp by Aaron Carter and subsequently getting back together with him and being oh so happy to work with him. Wouldn't that piss you off, just a little bit?
I don't care whether or not I am viewed as a fake stan for being upset by all of this. I've always supported Rihanna, through thick and through thin. I was always there to defend her when nobody else would. I even proudly sported a Rihanna avatar when she flopped. I love her as a person and as a musician, but this is wrong on so many levels. If people enjoy the new songs, cool. But I don't. I will try my hardest to continue supporting her as a stan, but I am extremely offended right now.
