Rihanna: Beating? What Beating?

3/14/2009 8:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There was no sign of stress from Rihanna last night, even as her lawyer was scrambling to prevent her from testifying against Chris Brown. The singer was all laughs with Brandy in NYC.

The two later met up with Jay-Z and Beyonce for dinner.

Of course she should be able to laugh and go out and have a good time but I sense that what she and Chris Brown are doing are trying to repair their image. They want people to believe that with her going out and him jet skiing without a care, it means that the "incident", or as I see it the "BEATING", is not that serious. I've been hearing from other celebrities say things like, "they're kids, let them sort things out" or "it's not that bad". The message that Rihana seems to be wanting to send out is that she's okay, that it wasn't serious, it was just a fight that happens between people in love, and that love forgives anything. She is living in DENIAL. I feel bad for her but I truly wish she wasn't in the public eye because she is sending the WRONG message. Rihana doesn't get it that Chris Brown's chance of getting his career back on track depends on what she does. As long as she is willing to be with him without even waiting to see if there is actual change from him, Chris knows he has her wrapped around his finger and all he has to do is apologize next time he abuses her.

She threw the first punch    

I am not really trying to comment on this incident since really it is no ones business but those involved, but if what is being said is true (which in this day what can be believed) but she did throw the first hit out there. I am really tired of not only the "stars" out there saying you should never hit a woman...uh it goes both ways...NO ONE SHOULD EVER HIT ANYONE! I am not at all saying what Chris Brown did was OK, but Ri Ri should not have hit him in the first place, unfortunately EVERYONE seems to be not hearing or reading that part of the story. Please don't say a man should never hit a woman yada yada yada...she and Chris look to be the same size, she looks even a little taller...woman need to stop acting like victims...violence begets violence...as the old saying goes...keep your hands to yourself.

Are you so stupid Rhianna that you would hang out with a remorseless, talentless b**** who killed an innocent woman and is trying to offer her greiving famiiy pennies for their loss?? How disgusting you are Rhianna and I hope while you laugh that you soon know that you have let alot of people down and have lost the respect of sooooooooo many people..I am glad you are hanging out with Brandy though, im sure you have lots to talk about ie. having no career, being embroiled in scandal, not sanding up and doing the right thing, etc..you are both losers..why dont you take off those sunglasses Riri? You look like a fool with them on, you are proud of your beating so take the glasses off so the world can see your bruises! Shame on you and when it happens again blame NO ONE but YOURSELF..you are a DISGRACE!!!

WTH TMZ? if she were out with Chris Brown then yeah, lol, I could see the disdainful title. But really, TMZ? Rihanna shouldn't be allowed to smile a month after a beat down? Is that what you're implying? She shouldn't be out with friends, some of whom could be a great influence to her at this point in her life?

She looks beautiful! I can't hate.... I am glad she's finding support with Jay Z, Beyonce and Brandy, who has been through the ringer herself. You need a good support system to get through stuff like this and compared to Rihanna, these folks are veterans in the business.

I'd like to thank Rihanna for once again raising the bar for young ladies coming of age, all across this wonderful world!

Back in the dark ages before feminism, the backward thinkers would use the term, "Take it Like a Man!" Indicating that bitches couldn't take a punch.

But Rihanna! that new shining light in the women's movement should get out there, tearing down more walls that divide the sexes, and proclaim to the world that she can "TAKE IT LIKE A HO'!!!" copyrighting that phrase and maybe having it tattooed on her ass.
