Rihanna

I Reached Out to Chris Brown

... 'Cause He's HOT

Screw the brutal, face-smashing beating in 2009 ... Chris Brown is the HOTTEST R&B artist out right now -- which is why Rihanna says she reached out to CB to collaborate on two new songs.

Rihanna called Ryan Seacrest this morning on KIIS FM, explaining her choice to record two duets with the man who brutalized her three years ago -- "I reached out to him about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because that’s the only person that really -- it made sense to do the record. Just as a musician -- despite everything else -- that was going to be the person."

She said, "I thought about rappers, and I’ve done that so many times, and the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown. So I wanted him on the track."

It's not personal ... it's business ... right?

Alot of pple out there are so foolish and vain why take other peoples life so persolally?you are busy taken painkillers for someone else's pain.Leave them alone they love eachother they are the only pple who know what they shared and wwwhat happened between them.All we heard from the so called media who's greatest ambition is to riun pples career and lives are just hypothesis. When the media destroys you then they start singinging praise of you when u are gone.I love Chris he is a very strong and focused young kid if it was some other person he would have given up his carreer or commited suicide with the hate stories the media write about him.Stay focused Chris leave pretenders like Jay Z and Miranda alone.Please Leave these two alone and face your own problems...are u saints?

Too hot to trot, ha? So hot, that Rhianna never wants the to trot. (Here to stay, and never want to go away) Even if Chris beats her a--!! deaf, dumb and blind. In a matter of fact, Rhianna likes Chris so much, because he's her male lesbian. And as much as ppl. hate Mike Tyson, Rhianna makes ppl. like him look like a dynasty. If she was Robin Givens. She would've never left Mike.

Anyone who attacks Rihanna in her decision to duet with Chris Brown needs to research victim-blaming and bite their tongue before deciding to criticize a victim of domestic violence. Ignorance is bliss in today's society, though.

The Honey Badger thanks SportsGirl. That's the name I heard on the radio last night, when the D.J's were talking about it. When they be having ppl. calling in and giving their comments about different subjects on the radio, that they be talking about. And i couldn't remember that name for nothing. Thanks again. That is a white hereditary problem. That's what black women get for trying to be like white women. Black men has got discipline. I can tell, from the race riot, in the 60's. And a lot of things have changed since then too. People get along much better, than them ole racist 50's and 60's.
Cause what? Discipline is on your side. Rhianna and Bobbi Kristina, would you please let it be on yours.

Rihanna is showing forgiveness and you people bash her for that? What does him hitting her have to do with her talking about his music? RIHANNA DID THIS FOR HER FANS, IF HER FANS ARE OKAY WITH IT THEN NO ONE ELSE'S OPINIONS MATTER. SHUT THE **** UP

everyone needs to leave rihanna alone and stay out her bussiness. if she wants to get back with chris so be it. no one knows what really happened in that car cause no one was there. now if he does hit her again thats hers and only her choice to leave him. it may or maynot end well but unfortunetly thats how people are.
