When you think of it, as sick as it may be, a pre-nup contract is not a bad place to lock her in with enough incentives that she reconsiders her testimony in court, or even pressing charges altogether...

I think she's good enough at making money on her own that she doesn't need his..

I think she pulls in more than CB, being on Jay-Z's label and all. If only she had 1/10 the common sense as she has money....

Could be. We'll revisit this thought in a couple of years when she engages in a food fight in the hot tub with James Blunt and Soulja Boy on The Surreal Life

Kinda makes me sick that it seems like Chris Brown has gotten even more popular because of this. Like the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards thing and the fact that I'm hearing his music and remixes played in stores a lot more and radio station party busses are blasting his music throughout the city all day...

The fact that he hasn't been ostracised and has been further embraced makes me think our society is much further behind when it comes to this issue than I thought. If I didn't know any better, I'd think that beating up your girlfriend is something that is practically a good thing and a great way to get her to stick with you.

I heard people on a call-in show voicing support and trying to make excuses for him. I found this disturbing for there is no justification for him doing what he did to her, even if she did give him an STD.

the people saying that she deserves what she gets because she's back with him are almost as fucking stupid as those justifying his actions. also tycoon I would ban you if I was a mod

she has already had several hits even before "umbrella" so she simply isn't a one hit wonder.

Teger, you would ban almost everyone if you were a mod. You are not real tolerant of opinions that dont march in lockstep with your own, or havent you noticed?

I've been a bit curious about the ambivalent African-American reaction to this event.

The African-Americans I've talked to about the issue are not particularly condemning of Mr. Brown. A typical reaction: "We don't know what happened in that car. Nobody besides Chris Brown and Rihanna know what happened in that car. It's pointless to speculate about what might have happened." Generally followed with the usual polite disclaimers. Blackplatano's response early in this very thread is another example.

I am probably stepping into a hornet's nest even wondering aloud why that may be, but I'll go ahead and do it anyways. Is it because of a cultural difference, e.g. domestic violence is not as detested in certain cultures? (My own belief is that we have reached something of a fever-pitch on this issue in America.) Is it because of a general distrust in policing that makes any of these accusations ring false? Is it because of a (I think somewhat justifiable) belief that white America loves to see another black pop star going down, and confirming perhaps some prejudices they hold just under the surface?

Or is it just that my experiences have been with the wrong people?

I think you guys may have been trolled by Tycoon. At least I hope.
