Three years after pleading guilty to assaulting his ex, Chris Brown and Rihanna seem to have come to some sort of a truce.  This week, Brown sent his former girlfriend a message for her birthday via Twitter: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN!”  Rihanna then thanked him via her own Twitter account, according to People.  Lately, controversy has been brewing as the duo are back on speaking terms and rumors that they may be getting back together are circulating.  The pair have even collaborated with their music, as Brown is singing on a remix of Rihanna’s track “Birthday Cake,” called “Cake.”

Hollywood: Portrayals of Domestic Violence

Posted In: Dating Advice Videos, Videos

By LaVonya Reeves

As a survivor of domestic violence, this is a subject close to my heart, and it leads me to asks questions like:

– What responsibility does Hollywood have for depicting healthy relationships?

– Do they accurately represent abusive relationships?

You’ve undoubtedly seen the headlines and read the stories, as there are cases upon cases of such violence. One relatively recent example has to do with the controversy surrounding Eminem and Rihanna’s music video for “Love The Way you Lie,” which depicts the emotional highs and lows, resentment and lies, and even physical altercations in one specific abusive relationship. In the video, actress Megan Fox and the former hobbit guy from Lost (Dominic Monaghan) show us an unhealthy relationships filled with sex, tender moments, fights, violence, and fire.

And let’s not forget the highly publicized domestic violence incident between R&B singers Rihanna and Chris Brown. Rihanna (whose unhealthy relationship with Chris Brown was made public when he hit her) also sings the chorus and is shown throughout the video.

The Dating Double Standard

Cupid's Pulse Article: The Dating Double Standard

By High Yield Hottie

Ever thrown a drink in a man’s face because he said something piggish?  I have (and highly recommend it).  However, while recently out to dinner with a male friend – let’s call him Master Key – I curbed my natural reflex and listened to what he had to say.  As we cocktailed, our conversation turned to how many intimate partners were acceptable for men and women in this day and age.  Master Key crudely summed it up as follows:

“It’s a key/lock situation.  Well, a man is naturally the key.  The woman is the lock.  A key that opens many different locks is an amazing key.  But a lock that is opened by many different keys isn’t worth anything at all.”

Cue my desire to give him a martini facial and poke his eyes out with the plastic olive skewer.

Yet despite my disgust for his sexist point of view, he has a point.  While women have been tirelessly shattering glass ceilings and income bracket double standards professionally, there’s one area where the double standard seems to persist, and that’s in dating.  Even as adult women, in the eyes of many men (and women, too), we’re still held to the binary categorization of “slut” or “nice girl.”  So what’s a gal like you to do with this infuriating double standard?  Take a cue from some of our celebrity friends and choose to own it, call it out, hide it or accept it.

Rihanna made her lack of anger towards Chris Brown apparent on Monday, when she decided to follow her abusive ex on Twitter, reports UsMagazine.com.  Rihanna and Chris Brown had a very public breakup after Brown attacked Rihanna nearly two years ago.  The domestic violence case still deeply resonates with fans.  One of Rihanna’s Twitter followers tweeted, “I never thought you would go back to him!  You better not.  It’s your life, but you do have people that look up to you (e.g. young girls).”  Rihanna replied, typing, “It’s f*cking Twitter, not the altar!  Calm down!”  The singer then qualified her harsh words, adding, “”Baby girl, I’m sorry.  I didn’t mean to hurt or offend you — just needed to make it clear!”
