Now that Rihanna has begun to talk to the media this week about her relationship with Chris Brown, MTV will air Chris Brown: The Interview, during which the singer will also open up about the night he assaulted his ex-girlfriend.
I don't know if I'm relieved he's speaking without the aid of a PR rep, or horrified that he's speaking without the aid of a PR rep. I wish someone could get hold of this kid and show him how to use this as a teachable moment, instead of sweeping it under the rug.
How about admitting "Rihanna and I had a volatile relationship that escalated into physical violence that is unacceptable and inexcusable on my part, considering everything I witnessed as a child." Then continue with the fact that any victim should realize these warning signs and remove themselves from the situation. And as an abuser, get help. Maybe if you started there, you can open up a dialogue and you can actually turn this into a positive.
Chris, if you were my son, I would have you in therapy until you can figure out the difference between right and wrong. It's time to grow up and accept responsibility.
