So, this is a potentially positive development. After hearing some questionable new Chris Brown lyrics that were probably about her, Rihanna has issued a twitter smack down that is probably about him, and un-followed him, to boot.
Here’s how it went down. In Chris Brown’s new freestyle over Kanye West‘s “Way Too Cold” (he had to change the name from “Theraflu” because the cold medicine company threatened to sue), Brown said the following vile things:
Don’t fuck with my old bitch it’s like a bad fur/ Every industry nigga done had her/ Trick-or-treat like a pumpkin just to smash her/ Niggas breaking codes, but I’m the password
Unless Chris Brown has some other ex in the music industry we don’t know about, this is probably about Rihanna. He’s basically saying that she’s slutty and used up but still only has eyes for him, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that “smash” has both sexual and violent connotations. While this might inspire some people to issue a statement decrying how misogynistic those lyrics are, RiRi decided to keep it short and sweet:
She also un-followed him on twitter. Hooray!
It can take a long time for victims of abuse to get rid of all tender feelings towards their exes, so I’m glad she’s starting to do that now. I knew it was only a matter of time until Breezy got cocky about her seemingly endless capacity for forgiveness and did something so asinine it would manage to alienate her. Now let’s see how long it lasts.
