EYE SAW THAT: RHIANNA KNUCKLES UP AS HER COLLABO WITH CHRIS GETS READY TO DROP

Tomorrow superstar Rhianna is releasing her new remixed single “Birthday Cake” on Feb. 20 -which also happens to be her birthday, see the irony?- and the song features her infamous ex, Chris Brown. Rhirhi and CHris have been taunting the press forever about their alledged “Are they back together or not?” staus, and RhiRhi is already gearing up from the backlash that’s about to come ….and it seems like even Big Boss Jay-Z isn’t off limits with the middle finger. Rhianna, notorius for her tweets, had this to share with the world:

This is a statement/rumor said to be behind some building tension at Jay-Z’s label that may explain what was going on:

“When Rihanna started making some noise about leaving JayZ’s RocNation last year, everyone thought that it was because JayZ was forcing her to take a break so all the focus would be on Beyonce’s baby and Beyonce’s new album. Nope.

It was actually because Rihanna didn’t like JayZ trying to control her love life. JayZ had spent several years taking Rihanna’s career to the next level (you might recall that her first big commercial hit was Umbrella with JayZ). He managed her to stardom, only to watch everything get thrown into turmoil when Chris Brown started beating on her. He helped to get her away from Chris Brown, get her healthy, and get her career back on track again.

Understandably, when JayZ found out that Rihanna was creeping around with Chris Brown again, he was furious. he asked her to stop, and she refused. Then she threatened to leave. Reports started popping up that she had fired JayZ. Lots of arguments and threats back and forth. As of today, she’s still at RocNation, but as long as she insists on seeing Chris Brown, this power struggle isn’t over yet.”

HMM. INTERESTING…

Rhianna’s twitter rant seems to be brought on by an open letter posted on Billboard Magazine’s site.  Assistant Editor Jason Lipshultz writes:

“..The news about CB dropping by your “Birthday Cake” remix… damn. Three years and nine days later, it is officially implied that, no matter if you two are “single” or “in a relationship” or “it’s complicated,” a token of forgiveness has been earned by Brown. And that’s not cool, to a whole lot of people.

Look, you could do this one song with Brown and never work with him again, or go record “Watch The Pop Throne” with him. You two could become a couple again and get married in Vegas next week. Maybe you want none of those things, or all of those things; you certainly have the right to do any of those things. In your words, “there’s only one you, so just be that.” Do you, Rihanna!

But, in all honesty… you can’t do you, Rihanna. Not here. Not with Chris Brown. Because like it or not, millions of people are paying attention to you, trying to be as cool as you, attempting to find love in a hopeless place and wondering if it’s okay to walk down the same dark alleyway twice. Young girls look up to people like you to guide them through circumstances too complex for them to tackle on their own, and by granting Chris Brown an iota of tolerance, you implicitly encourage others to consider doing the same. […]

If you continue letting Chris Brown slither into your work or personal life, nothing tremendous will happen – bloggers will blog and a backlash will form, but you’ll no doubt continue ruling the Hot 100 and the world will keep spinning. Yet if you grit your teeth, sacrifice instinct and decide to inspire… even three years removed from that horrific incident, that “f-ck yourself” moment, that public banishment of the man who physically attacked you, will still resonate with so many people looking for their own morsel of strength. As essential as your voice has become in the pop landscape, you have the opportunity to deliver a message that transcends any lyric you could ever sing, to stand for something that lasts much longer than any three-minute piece of radio fodder. We, like you, all want to let our individuality shine – to know who we are, and just be ourselves – but in this one instance, we need your message to be perfect.”

WOOOWWW. Rhianna responded:

In case nobody’s picked up on it, Rhianna’s gonna do whatever she feels like and isn’t too concerned with what anyone else has to say.   From partying,  to doing so much that point she has to be monitored 24-7 to smoking “them tweeds” out in the open, the girl is giving the world the middle finger.

And Chris is egging her on all the way :

ARE THESE TWO DESTINED TO BE TOGETHER? OR IS THIS A LEGENDARY MUSICAL TRAINWRECK WAITING TO HAPPEN? WHAT DO YOU THINK?~~~~> TAKE A LISTEN TO THE ORIGINAL… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypJQbAHq2aM
