Chris Brown and Rihanna are a couple again, but how long will it last?
Why are stars attracted to bad boys? Or, put another way, why are bad boys attractive, and not just to stars?
This comes up, again, in the wake of news that pop star Rihanna, 24, has chosen to get back together with R&B singer Chris Brown, 23, the bad-boy boyfriend who beat her up four years ago. Not only is she not sheepish, she’s defending herself, in the pages of Rolling Stone, with candor, gusto and even a measure of maturity.
“I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of it,” Rihanna told the magazine. “Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash.”
They will mark their return as a couple by walking the red carpet together Sunday at the Grammy Awards (both are nominated and Rihanna will be performing), reports HollywoodLife.com. They spent five hours together in a recording studio Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, photographed as they drove away in his black Porsche. And on Wednesday, they went to court in Los Angeles together; she blew him a kiss as he entered the courtroom, and they left together after a brief hearing.
Brown was back in court to deny accusations this week that he did not complete the community service he was required to do as punishment in the Rihanna assault case. He could see his probation revoked, but the judge asked for additional reports and scheduled another hearing in April.
Brown is not a bad guy, Rihanna insists. “There’s so many reasons why I ever reconsidered having him in my life,” she said in the Rolling Stone interview. “He’s not the monster everybody thinks. He’s a good person. He has a fantastic heart. He’s giving and loving. And he’s fun to be around.”
Brown has repeatedly apologized. His first was a two-minute video on his official YouTube page apologizing to fans and Rihanna, expressing remorse and his “deepest regret” and saying he had repeatedly apologized to Rihanna and “accepts full responsibility.” But now he’s just mad, ranting on his Instagram page Tuesday that he was “sick of being accused” and “I honestly think I deserve respect.”
