Thankfully, I have never been in a physically abusive relationship. But I have unfortunately been in some emotionally abusive ones. And so I’m somewhat sympathetic with Rihanna who is clearly still in love with Chris Brown. Where it not for the media, I’m sure they’d still be together. The end of that love affair came to a crashing end not by her choice or even Chris’, but by public pressure to do the right thing — to set a positive example for other girls.
But are celebrities like her really the appropriate role models for love and living a good life? Not so sure. Anyway, here she is in her native Barbados talking to Oprah about what she wants in a man. She seems charming and down to earth.
Also, what is abundantly clear is that she is just like most of us who have a simple desire to be LOVED unconditionally. Rich, poor, celebrity or average joe, we all want love.
