Rihanna & Chris Brown are the topic of conversation

February 15th, 2009 // 57 Comments

Rihanna and Chris Brown’s fathers spoke to the media this weekend along with Jay-Z who helped launch Rihanna’s career. Here’s what they had to say about the alleged assault that occurred last week. (Via People.):

Jay-Z:
“You have to have compassion for others. Just imagine it being your sister or mom and then think about how we should talk about that. I just think we should all support her. She’s going through a tough time. You have to realize she’s a young girl, as well. She’s very young.”

Joseph Fenty, Rihanna’s father:
“There is some bruising. She will be all right. I think so. At some point, she will speak out. I hope she will stand up for women all over the world.”
Fenty, a salesman and freelance clothing designer, said Rihanna is spending time with her girlfriends in Barbados while she heals. While Fenty said he wouldn’t tell his daughter what to do, he did say, “If it were me, I’d move on.”

Clinton Brown, Chris Brown’s father:
“He’s very remorseful. He’s very concerned about the situation and he wants to make sure that [Rihanna's] okay. This is unfortunate, this stumble, this situation. Hopefully, he will get past it. We all have our shortcomings. We all trip.”
“If you are on his side, you are on his side,” he says. “Just because someone trips, if you are truly a fan, you are not going to demonize him instantaneously.”

Dear Chris Brown,

You know what’s an awesome way of knowing your girlfriend’s okay? NOT punching her in the face.

That one’s on the house,

    And the winner for the funniest f#cking thing I ever read on the internet.

    I never post on these things but visit the site twice a day.
    I had to thank you for the cutting wit. Amazing.
    I’m sitting in my own piss.

    #44: On a larger scale, one could argue that the world at large is pretty much a violent place and much of the world’s conflict has been resolved by violent means. There are far too many examples of this to cite and you simply cannot ignore history.

    And at the extreme risk of also being politically incorrect as well: history has shown that in general it has been the white men who have done the war mongering for the last 2000 years. It has been the white men who have done the pillaging, the beheading, and the subjugating of entire races into slavery. So if the world is not quite what you had in mind, you only have yourselves to thank, eh.

    Last, hip-hop represents but a segment off the black community culture-wise, yet there are many of us who eschew hip-hop messengers and the messages they espouse. Chris Brown is a brotha w/ some real problems and issues, but he no more represents the African-American ideology than
    Kevin Federline or Joaquin Phoenix represents white culture as a whole.

  3. #44 just because it may seem to be accepted by the media doesn’t mean most people accept it. The fact that some rap artists do call women these names is the same reason I refuse to give them the time of the day. I actually despise rap artists like them.

    Here is a blog with an interesting point of view. I think Rihanna is creating her own reality. Check it out: http://jujumama.wordpress.com/2009/02/12/rihanna-a-quantum-view-no-victims-no-villains/

  7. I love how Chris Borwn father tries to blame fans to give Chris Brown a second chance: If you are really a fan, you will not demonize him.
