Rihanna Shouldn't Have to Keep Love Tweets to Chris Brown a Secret

14

rihanna tweet to chris brownI'm always game for a romantic reunion between two celebs who really seem meant for one another, you know? Like Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. When they got back together, I wanted to throw a party. (And yes, I'm still hoping they figure it out once and for all.) They're just one of those couples you root for. Rihanna and Chris Brown are not one of those couples! They're pretty much the OPPOSITE of that kind of couple. After the evidence emerged of Chris Brown's assault of RiRi in 2009, no one in their right mind would be rooting for these two to get back together. Except maybe ... the stars themselves?

Say it isn't so. It all started when Chris tweeted, "Love u more than u know!" to -- it seemed -- no one in particular. But two minutes later, Rihanna tweeted, "I'll always love you #1love." Uh-oh ...

Aside from all the possibly dangerous repercussions of Rihanna getting back together with Chris, her reputation is definitely on the line. (Remember the backlash when she sort of "forgave" him? How awful that looked to her female fans?) These semi-secretive tweets might just be Rihanna's way of easing the public back into the idea of the two of them together. But the fact that they're secretive at all -- why won't they just tweet directly at one another, you know? -- should serve as a clue that she's embarrassed, ashamed, worried, or downright scared to admit her feelings for Chris.

And that's pretty much the worst possible sign that a relationship shouldn't progress.

Oh, sure, occasionally one friend, or your mom, or your neighbor won't like the guy you're in love with. But when it seems like the whole world is against you and that person getting together, there's probably a good reason! And I've always thought that finding yourself sneaking around behind your critics' backs or pursuing any aspect of the relationship behind closed doors means it's an unhealthy situation. If you're in a healthy, happy relationship with a good guy, you shouldn't have to hide anything.

I think we all know the score here. Sadly, many women who have been battered end up wanting to get back together with their abuser, no matter how bad it looks from the outside ... Here's hoping Rihanna knows better than to follow her heart -- or his tweets -- back into a disturbing redux of her relationship with Chris.

What do you make of Rihanna and Chris's tweets? Do you agree that a secret relationship is usually a toxic one?

It would be an IDIOT move for Rihanna if she fot back with him. And there are A LOT of young girls STILL in love with Chris and favor a reunion of the two! That SCARES me! :( They need to chill, seriously.

I think its their business. From what I have seen, Chris has done everything that the courts have told him to do. He has stayed out of trouble so maybe she wants to give him the benefit of the doubt that he has changed. That is up to her and nobody else. I would still listen to both of their music and support them. As far as Chris beating riri, I think its funny how no one investigated the his bruises and his scratches that he accumulated over the course of their relationship. I don't condone domestic violence, but if I hit someone I expect to get hit back rather it be a man or woman.

I think if she is stupid enough to go back to him then she deserves every ounce of th repercussions of that decision. Stupid is as stupid does.

Why is it anyone's business? Why is our culture so celebrity obsessed? Why does a stranger's personal life matter to you? Why do we nickname these people as if we know them personally? Aside from a celebrity's talent, why would anyone look up to them? I genuinely want to know the answers to those questions, if anyone could be so kind and answer.

Umad- because we have been brought up in a culture that glamorizes these idiots and gives them the ability to live in ways that they don't really deserve. Talent does not a God make. But yet we are worshipping these morons like they are in fact gods. They are human and fallible and alot of the time complete and total wackjobs. There is no excuse for laying your hands on a woman, period. I'm disturbed that any woman would have the audacity to give this guy the benefit of the doubt. It's an insult to women like myself who have been abused. Abusers DON'T CHANGE. They just learn to cover their rage better. If this is true, her management and her mama need to get this girl in check now before she goes right back into an abusive situation. And OF COURSE he would have DEFENSE WOUNDS. What self respecting woman wouldn't fight back?? Think before you speak if you know not what you speak of. You know what they say about assumptions.....

@aya when him beating her came out her own friends and family was taking about how she always hit him everytime they had a heated argument. That's what mra. was talking about I do feel sorry for you but I agree male or female if you hit someone you should expect a hit back. I shouldnt be allowed to get away with it just because I'm a female.

It's her business. I wouldn't share my private love life with the whole world either.
