Young women, I beg you — don’t be like Rihanna!RELATED: Tina Brown slams Rihanna: Daily Beast Editor-in-Chief calls the singer 'a big fat zero as a role model'
The ravishing songstress and Bad Example for Girls waltzed into an LA court yesterday with her past and present and, I guess, forever boyfriend, Chris Brown, who isn’t man enough to pick on men or dames his own size.
Smiling as she walked in, she blew a kiss in Brown’s direction. RiRi came to stand by the man who once pummeled her face into a bloody mess for the lamest of reasons. Rihanna had confronted Brown about racy texts from random babes.
But yesterday, she walked into the courtroom as if saying, That’s OK! Every man gets a freebie.
With young women wanting to grow up to be Rihanna, this is a disgrace.
Brown showed up in the downtown LA court, where the state of California has expended scads of expensive court time, zillions of man hours and a forest-worth of paper to avenge the songstress for the bloody bruising Brown inflicted on her noggin in 2009.
For there was Rihanna, trailing Brown like an idiot puppy. She was not there to glare at her man, or give him a richly deserved smack upside the head.
RiRi instead engifted Brown with a little lovin’ before he faced a judge.
She humiliated herself.
She embarrassed all women.
Then she sat in the gallery beside Brown’s mom, Joyce Hawkins, in a show of support so vile, RiRi seemed to be telling the world that women secretly deserve to be punished.
Is this lady begging to be treated like well-dressed dog meat from a guy so wimpy and weird he can’t fathom waling on adult males?
Brown was in court to answer prosecutors’ charges that he faked records for the community service he was supposed to perform in his native Virginia, ironically as punishment for the felony assault of Rihanna.
Cheating, whether on community labor or on a woman, seems part and parcel of Brown’s character.
I had nearly forgotten how starstruck and accommodating LA judges can be to celebrity morons.
I almost gasped in 2009, watching as Judge Patricia Schnegg awarded Brown a get-out-of-jail-free card — sentencing him to a slap on the wrist: five years’ probation and six months of “labor’’ in Virginia for a crime that would put away an ordinary hood for several years.
Then the judge praised Brown like a young, star-struck girl.
“I think it is commendable you took responsibility for your conduct.’’
Really? Why not send him to bed with milk and cookies? This is LA, where if you have a big enough name and enough money, anything is possible.
With kid-glove treatment like this, it’s no wonder that Brown thinks he can do no wrong.
Brown is accustomed to having women throw themselves at his head. And with her “kick me’’ attitude, Rihanna is setting an example I wouldn’t want my daughter to see.
There is no excuse for a man using a girl as a punching bag.
There is no excuse for a woman flaunting her abuse to save him.
Chris Brown already got away with using his fists to rearrange Rihanna’s face. And Rihanna has rewarded him for it.
He kept his lady, his recording contract, his fame and, among men with anger issues who think women ask for it, he kept his reputation. If Rihanna forgives him, why can’t the rest of us?
I’ll tell you why. He’s a chicken who can’t even seem to do a lick of work.
RiRi, if you want to make yourself into a fool, keep it away from impressionable girls who aspire to be just like you.
I’ve lost any respect I ever had for you.
