Despite all of the gossip about Rihanna and Chris Brown being together, then not together, then Chris is with his ex-girlfriend, then then he's with Rihanna ... Rihanna gave an interview to Elle UK in which it sounds suspiciously like she and Chris are primed to settle down and have a baby. Seriously, this sounds like it could happen any second! Listen to this ...
Rihanna told Elle that:
'Stay' [her new single] is a story about having love that close and wanting it to last forever. You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he [Chris Brown] is the one I have that kind of relationship with.
I will probably have a kid. And I’m praying I can go on vacation for a good month.
So there you have it, folks. She wants her relationship to "last forever" AND she wants a kid -- so presumably that would be with Chris, the guy she's in a forever relationship with.
I know a lot of us are skeptical about this relationship and how could we not be? Fact of the matter is, behavior such as hitting your partner is deeply ingrained, and extremely hard to completely turn around. Whenever Chris is stressed or anxious or angry or drinking -- well, if I was Rihanna, I'd be worried. But she doesn't seem concerned about it, so I'm not going to be concerned for her. But even wealthy, famous, "empowered" women stick with their abusers for years and years -- look at Whitney Houston. However, Rihanna has said it's her "mistake" to make and she's right.
I would hope, REALLY HOPE, that she would give it another few years before she decides to have a baby with Chris. A baby is going to add a whole new level of stress to a relationship, and many abusers don't even start until after the woman is pregnant. Not to mention that Chris is still running around getting into fights.
But at this point, I just can't bother about Rihanna and her choices anymore. I feel bad for the young women who look up to her, and when their boyfriend hits them, thinks, "Well, Rihanna took back Chris and I will too." But maybe those young women need to learn that celebrities are people too and you shouldn't make decisions based on their decisions.
Do you think Chris and Rihanna should have a baby?
