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?

Hope he beats the sh!t out of her again. If she's stupid enough to want anything to do with him then she completely deserves it.

C'mon, people. Am I the only one that's noticed she's getting dumber as each day passes? She'll break out of it.

First of all you need to quit trying to justify that you want to be with Chris. You are obiviously jealous of his new girlfriend that looks better than you. Move on, he doesn't want you. You may have talent, if that's what you call it, but you are ugly inside and out.

I really can't think of two dumb asses more perfect for one another. Hopefully, the next time he goes upside her head, he will knock some sense into to it. How can a head be that big w/nothing in it? HOW?

Also, Rihanna, Chris isn't thinking about you. Telling the world how great he is won't make him come running back to you. He is out partying and living it up w/his girlfriend and you sitting around talking about what an amazing artist he is just begging for his attention. Desperate much? Karreuche isn't worried about you or your subliminal tweets either. She has the douche, you don't. You know you are trash when even Chris Brown don't want you.

Hands down, the best - and most hilarious - comment about this whole fiasco was posted by Uncle Phil on The Superficial:

It’s like my Dad always used to tell me: “Son, if you love someone, beat the living **** out of them and be completely unrepentant about it. If they come back to you two years later, it was meant to be. If they don’t, well, they’ll remember not to **** with you. What were we talking about?”

Dad used to drink a lot.


Doesn't that says it all?
