Oh, you know, just Rihanna photobombing the Full House guys on Good Morning America. NBD.

In which Hollywood asks us to watch as it finally consumes its own tail.

No surprise here: Law & Order: SVU's Chris Brown/Rihanna episode is a gigantic bummer. Especially the ending.

OMG, guys — Law & Order: SVU is doing a Chris Brown/Rihanna episode.

In the ancient Greek myth about Prometheus, the trickster Titan steals fire from the gods of Olympus to deliver to humankind. As punishment, Zeus chains the immortal Prometheus to a rock and compels a bird of prey (sometimes an eagle, other times a vulture) to eat his liver, which always grows back the next day. It’s a vision of eternal torment, just like Sisyphus pushing a boulder endlessly up a hill or George Orwell’s immortal image of a boot stomping on a face for all eternity.

We are all Prometheus, and Chris Brown is the liver that keeps growing back.

Boom goes the dynamite.




Rihanna tweets at Chris Brown before a court determines whether he violated the terms of his probation for assaulting her in 2009. No words. (Some words.)

If Rihanna wants to get back with the man that ASSAULTED HER SO BADLY SHE WAS HOSPITALIZED, then that’s her own sad prerogative. But PUBLICLY SUPPORTING HER ASSAULTER sends a horrible message to both the abusers and abuse victims out there. If you truly do want to “wish him the best” (though why I can’t fathom), YOU HAVE HIS F—-ING PHONE NUMBER.  

As a public figure, her actions and words do send the wrong message… but it’s disturbing that people are affected by celebrities in the first place. Celebrities do not make the best role models. There’s a reality to be faced.

Honestly, I think courts should force both the victim and offender into counseling (separate sessions of course) in these situations. People who support Chris Brown and tell everyone to move on are only correct if he has faced the psychological causes of his behavior and made strides to improve himself. I agree that people shouldn’t just be taught that they are good or bad.

Until that time, publications shouldn’t just revel in ~*omg that new tattoo dang boy is full of it*~, they should offer phone numbers to help lines and real, scientific analysis of what is happening. There needs to be more public information concerning learned helplessness and battered person syndrome. 

National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1−800−799−SAFE (7233) or TTY 1−800−787−3224


This response is smart and important. Know this number, people!

Rihanna tweets at Chris Brown before a court determines whether he violated the terms of his probation for assaulting her in 2009. No words. (Some words.)

One of two things is true: Either Chris Brown is secretly meta and actively trying to make the worst decisions possible as part of his commitment to “art” (if this is true, then he’s Andy Kaufman-level brilliant and definitely advanced), or he genuinely doesn’t care what other people think.

And if he doesn’t care, why should we?

Kyle Anderson asks us to all stop being shocked when Chris Brown does something insensitive. Thoughts?

Here’s the design tattoo artist Peter Koskela used as the basis for the ink:

It doesn’t mean we’re gonna make up, or even talk again. It just means I didn’t want to object to the judge…We don’t have to talk ever again in my life.

Rihanna explains why she relaxed her restraining order against Chris Brown in the new issue of Rolling Stone.
