real life fairy tale

rihanna has reunited with chris brown. i agree with the author of this article, that this is not only too common, and personally dangerous for her, but also exactly the wrong message for young people (who are we kidding, adults are following this story too) around the world. pop stars have influence, and while of course it's tragic that rihanna has returned to her abuser, but it's even more tragic to imagine her fans' internalization of this sitaution: obviously, she loves him, and couldn't bear to live without him (even though he beat her to a bloody pulp). she forgave him. that's the right thing to do.
