♦ Bow Wow Gives His Opinion on Rihanna’s Assault…
Rapper, Bow Wow is one of the many people shocked and saddened by this drama involving Chris Brown, who is said to have assaulted Rihanna. At first, he thought it was just more ridiculous rumors, created by people who need a good story. But like most of us, it was a shock when the story got deeper.
He says, “I mean, being in the business, the first thing is ‘ah, it’s false, another rumor, bloggers just wanting to have traffic to their site,’. But when the story was unfolding, it was kind of shocking to all. Chris is a good friend of mine. We’ve had the opportunity to tour together. And then Rihanna, she’s just a beautiful person. Period. Never done no wrong to nobody.”
The rapper says that they just need to be left alone to deal with their issues. “At the end of the day I’ve always believed in whatever happens with people’s business…my mom always told me don’t get into. And the situation is so major I think they just need their space and I think they need to deal with it.”
He relates to them, seeing as he knows what it feels like to be in a relationship that the media is interested in. “I’ve been in a high profile relationship before and I know how it feels when everybody’s in your business. It just puts more pressure. And the only way they’re going to get over the situation is just to let them deal with it. And that’s what I really want to do. I’m praying for them both.”
When asked about what he thought of the leaked photo of Rihanna, bruised and swollen after the assault, he describes it as “Just shocking. I mean we heard what happened but we really didn’t get a visual for it. But I mean hey, man. The picture speaks for itself.”
♦ Keenan Thompson and Flo Rida Comment on Rihanna Assault…
According to “Saturday Night Live” man, Keenan Thompson, Chris Brown could still perform on future episodes of “SNL”, regardless of allegations that he beat Rihanna.
Keenan says, “It’s not up to me, but I’m sure we would if he had another hit single. We don’t care about scandal. We just care about what brings us ratings!”
Speaking of Rihanna and Chris he says, “If we had them both on the show, that would be crazy.”
He says, the assault is “an unfortunate situation. I don’t know the whole story, but I know how women can get when you get a text message from another female, so I’m just saying, you have to learn that you can’t put your hands on a female.”
Thompson says, “He’s a big dude. He’s not a little dude.”
♦ Then, Flo Rida was asked if he had a message for pop star Rihanna…
He says, “Definitely. Her and Chris Brown- I met them and they are both great people. They definitely give music a good name because they are very talented. Preferably they can put aside their differences and get back to making hot music.”
♦ Paul Wall speaks on Rihanna photo leak…
Rapper, Paul Wall was interviewed recently and asked about what he thought about the leaked photo of Rihanna after she’s been allegedly beaten by Chris Brown.
He tells Rap-Up,“I saw the picture and read all the blog comments. I’m like, ‘Damn, that’s just bad.’ I hope she’s alright. I hate to get into other people’s business; whatever happened between them, that’s between them, but I just hope they both can come to a positive conclusion and that something positive can come out of it.”
The family man continues to say, “It’s just sad to see any kind of violence in a relationship. Being such young superstars, they have the world ahead of them both. I just hope that she’s alright. I didn’t see no marks on [Chris], so I’m pretty sure he’s alright.”
