I don’t even know what to say about these pictures. I really don’t. Rihanna looks as gorgeous as ever and she looks like she’s having a great time but the Chris Brown of it all makes me feel a little weird. I think it’s admirable that Rihanna could find it in her heart to forgive Chris for what he did. Forgiveness is something few people can truly give and I think it’s takes great strength of character. Forgiving is not the same as forgetting though and it’s not the same as putting yourself back in a potentially dangerous situation. At the same time, it’s really none of my business. Rihanna is a grown woman. She’s also a strong, confident woman. This is her decision. She shouldn’t be thinking about the message she’s sending to her young fans because no one should ever live their life for someone else. At the New York Knicks vs. Los Angeles Lakers in Los Angeles, Rihanna looks happy and that is good to see. I still worry this story will have a tragic ending but as someone who has been in Rihanna’s shoes (without the world watching of course), I know how hard it can be to walk away from someone you really believe you love regardless of what they do. I eventually decided I couldn’t allow myself to stay in the situation and walked away. With that said, I do believe people can change and maybe Chris has. Most of what he says and does makes me think otherwise but I’m sure Rihanna sees a side of Chris none of us do – maybe that side is the real Chris. No one knows except Chris himself – not even Rihanna. As much as we like to think we can, there is no way to ever really know what someone else is thinking. We can only do what we feel is best for ourselves. That’s what Rihanna is doing. I just hope she’s making the right choice.
