Rihanna’s publicist forces her to try to justify her collaborations with the guy who tried to kill her that time.
Rated R is my favourite era, so let’s use a picture from then, yeah? It’s also the era when she seemed to realise that being around Chris Brown was a bad idea. Oh, the simple days.
By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard the remixes that these two put out the other week, if you haven’t, you can listen below:
So there was a ton of backlash about them collaborating together, because, well, if someone tries to kill you and basically leaves you for dead in the middle of suburbia, you should probably just move the fuck on from them.
Seriously, I mean, how strange would the ending of Scream been if at the end Neve was like ‘oh hey Ghostface, you’re try’na kill me? Let’s record a song together.’
There’s a reason that didn’t happen, being that Kevin Williamson is not batshit insane.
Anyway, she called into Ryan Seacrest, and regurgitated the words her publicist shoved in her mouth:
I reached out to him about doing Birthday Cake because [he was] the only person that really made sense to do the record, just as a musician despite everything else [he] was going to be the person.
You know, I thought about rappers, and I’ve done that so many times, [but] the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown. So I wanted him on the track.
We did two records. One for my fans. One for his fans. And that way, our fans can come together. There shouldn’t be a divide.
Let’s run through this. Now, I think we’ve already established that it does not ‘make sense’ to collaborate with the guy who smashed your face into a window repeatedly, tried to push you out of a moving vehicle, bit your ears and fingers and split your lip almost to the bone, so hey, let’s just breeze (no pun intended) right past that.
He’s the hottest R&B artist? Bleh. Who cares? Here’s a bunch of dudes I would’ve preferred that would’ve made the song sexy, as opposed to sickening:
I get that she’s already worked with three of them (Drake, JT and Adam Levine) but there’s no reason why she can’t work with them again. It’s not like they beat her up while they were working together.
Ugh. Whatever. This whole thing is getting old.
