It was hard to ignore singer Rihanna shamelessly draping herself all over her former lover Chris Brown during the NY Knicks vs LA Lakers game at the Staples Center Tuesday. Rihanna, who was holidaying in her native Barbados with friends and family, jetted to Brown's side on Christmas day -- despite rumors that Brown hooked back up with his long-suffering girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.
It doesn't matter how many photos Rihanna takes with Brown, everyone can see how desperate, needy and clingy she is. She knows that Brown is using her to revive his failing career but she doesn't care, because Brown provides the vital source of Narcissistic Supply that she craves.
Hopefully 2013 will be the year Rihanna finds her self-respect and moves on from this dysfunctional relationship.
This comment by Rudy on London's Daily Mail website perfectly sums up the public's perception of Rihanna.
She's always running to him, meeting him, jetting to him. He dictates her every move within this relationship. Girl! Have some pride! Make him earn you. Don't be such a doormat. He will never respect you if you keep acting so insecure and easy. Men like to hunt. Be a challenge. Be the girl that he can't have so easily. Respect yourself. This is embarrassing to watch. You're better than this. Every woman is.
