My local Top 40 station has stopped playing Brown's songs since this incident occurred.
Well, she's an adult. They can yell or plead with her as much as they want, but they can't make her do anything. Her dad was apparently on record the other week as saying they hadn't been able to reach her, which is heartbreaking.

And Chris Brown's father, surprise surprise, was apparently a wife-beater as well, so it's not like he's got great role models there. Helllooooo, cycle of abuse!

Glad to hear some stations are dropping him from their playlists, though.

I know they're adults and they can't make them do anything, but they could be a positive influence in their lives. If I were Rihanna's father, I would've hopped a flight to wherever she was as soon as I heard the news of this incident.

Are you fucking kidding me?

yeah, good luck with that difficult love relationship, Rihanna - that's the furthest thing from love you've got going right now, girl.

As Rihanna's dad has said, she changed all her cell phone numbers, her e-mail address, etc. He, her mom, and her brother have tried contacting her numerous times with no luck. Also, they really have no way of knowing where she is with the way she's been moving around since this happened. And as Cori said, she is an adult. Legally, there's no way they can just go track her down if she doesn't want them to.

That's scary.

I saw a clip of Tyra Banks on Oprah last night and she was talking about an emotionally abusive relationship she was in years ago. She was saying she stayed because she felt if she couldn't make him treat her better, she was a failure. That was eye-opening. Might explain why a smart woman with high self-worth could still fall into that trap.

It's perplexing why someone like Rihanna would settle for this, but I guess you're pretty blind while you're in it

Unfortunately, some of us are blind when we're in unhealthy relationships - hopefully she's strong enough to eventually realize this and get the hell out.

Many Boston teens surveyed say Rihanna is at fault for assault - The Boston Globe

Quote:
Health counselors are specifically concerned with teenagers' views of the controversy. Of the teens questioned, more than half said both Brown, 19, and Rihanna, 21, were equally responsible for the assault. More than half said the media were treating Brown unfairly, and 46 percent said Rihanna was responsible for the incident

That is not true.

If they knew where she was, they could go to her residence and knock on her door. That they could do. Hell, she's not so hard to find. Rumor has it she's in a studio somewhere. What they couldn't do is force themselves inside her residence. So, if they knocked on her door, the worst that could happen was she wouldn't answer it and reject them. But, maybe, she might actually want to see them if they came to her.

So, fuck the e-mails, the cell phones calls, the texts and all that other bullshit. Her family needs to kick that shit old school and go and visit her. Which, by the way, is definitely NOT against the law. The law is only violated if her family enters Rihanna's home without her consent or permission.

Rihanna's not like the average person. She has an entourage of bodyguards, other security, assistants, and God knows what else with her most of the time. There's no way anyone could walk up to her door and just knock away, unless she'd allow it. Also, if she wanted to see/hear from her family so badly, I don't think she would've suddenly changed all her means of contact. She's avoiding them for a reason. It's stupid, but there's really nothing they can do, especially when she has the means, financially and otherwise to go anywhere in the world she wants at any point in time. If they got on a plane tonight to go see her in L.A., (which is where she was the last time I heard), and she found out about it, she could get a private jet, and be in Europe tomorrow morning. That wouldn't be so easy for a lot of us.

i love the new trend on the internet where everything's reverted back to some horrible old school line of thinking. i can't think of how many times i've read online where some form of abuse against a woman is apparently her fault. i've read threads on rape and people post that they were "asking for" it. absolutely ridiculous. i don't know if these guys really believe that or if they just want to thump their chest and seem like some big masculine guy.
