20/20 - Rihanna


Last night the long awaited interview with rihanna hit abc's 20/20 last night, and it had everyone glued to the TV for almost an hour (well at least i was). I ask myself, "why do you even care?" well the truth is I could not help but watch it, I wanted to hear her side of the story. Before the incident I was a supporter of both parties and still am, I just want to see people succeed. I understand that we are all only human, we make mistakes, and we learn from them. What Chris did was wrong (hands down) but after watching his interview(s) I believe he's gotten the help that he needs to be a changed man. Rihanna's interview definitely allowed me to see another side of her, both her and Chris have taken an ugly situation and turned it into something that can help others, a positive. They seemed to have a beautiful relationship, but sometimes you have to do what you've got to do to live a better life. Everything is not always glamorous when you are in the spot light.

I have a question for you; during the interview Rihanna said "F Love!", what is your take on LOVE? do you feel that people misinterpret what LOVE really is? in my opinion LOVE never changes, not its definition, not its qualities. . . but people do. I believe many take LUST and believe that it's love when it really isn't. When pointing the finger at LOVE, it's an excuse for you losing the ability to use your brain, in which you allow emotions to run deep and make certain decisions for you. I could be wrong, thoughts?

* I also thought about Rihanna's album that hit stores on the 23rd of this month, label's have strategies (marketing/promotion) and if this was one of them, then DAMN ! i'm just saying, it took a while to speak out and it's a coincidence this happened to be the time she choose (or her label did for her).
