Chris Brown and Rihanna Kiss and Hug at the MTV Video Music Awards

By  | 

Just when you think that people have come to their senses, something like this happens.  Chris Brown and Rihanna, the couple that made international headlines with their boxing match two years ago, were seen kissing and hugging at the MTV Video Music Awards.  The kiss was just a peck, but has some domestic violence awareness advocates heated over the bad example that Rihanna might be setting for young women.

Chris Brown and Rihanna both were big winners at the VMAs:  Chris won Best Male Video and Rihanna won Video of the Year.  So, both of the performers are at the top of their games.  Chris Brown’s comeback has been most impressive, since it appeared that his career was coming to an end after the incident three years ago.

The hugging/kissing event wasn’t captured on the main cameras for the show, but was instead seen on the MTV “All Access Live” cameras, which show the interesting things that celebrities are doing when no one else is looking.  The cameras cut away from Rihanna right after she received her award for her video, “We Found Love,” and it shows her seeing Brown in the audience.  That led the singer to stop and give him a hug and kiss, reaffirming her love for the controversial superstar.

The beating took place during the 2009 Grammy Awards, right before the show.  As a result, neither Brown nor Rihanna showed up for the awards.

Just last month, Rihanna spoke with Oprah Winfrey, stating that Chris is the “love of my life,” and that she is working with him to rebuild their friendship.   She also says that the two are “very close,” but said that they aren’t dating again.

“He’s in a relationship of his own. I’m single but we have maintained a very close friendship,” she said. “We’ve just worked on it little-by-little. And it’s not easy.”

    It’s really sad when something persoanl happens and becomes public knowledge and the public runs it in the ground. Sure Chris B was dead wrong for hitting Rih but they have to live with this not the public. I’m sure they both regret what happened and they are trying to get over it but in the same breathe if they choose to be friends and maybe even more once again that is between the two of them! No one has the right to dictate who either of them should or should not be with. It’s their life and they can live it however they choose to. One lives and learns from their mistakes and then moves on with life. Allow them to move on! Love is love whether with the right or wrong person!

    You right Deborah,if she chooses to forgive and move on whether it’s friendship it what ever ,she a grown woman- who needs to make her decisions on how she feels not how people say she should feel. Time passes people change.Yes he was wrong, dead wrong but no one knows this man’s journey and how he may have progressed. She need to quit talking to Oprah. It sure seem like Oprah love to dig up old drama”

    I second all of that TGIF-Thank God I’m Forgiven (So I can forgive). I really believe he has tried to better himself from that incident and understands that he was totally wrong for his actions; past is past please let them move on and live their lives; whether it’s together or separate. Is this a democraic country or a communist, why do people insist on making people do what they want them to do… I just don’t get that.

    The Bible says “you will be forgiven by God to the extent that you have forgiven others”. Leave Ri and Chris alone. If and when she is ready to walk away she will. But she shouldn’t walk away because other people think she should. On the other hand, maybe Chris has learned from his mistake and what he did may never happen again. We all deserve second chances. But look for warning signs and if you see them Ri, haul a**.

    Live and let live, I know it was wrong of him, but only those two know what happened in that car.Is she supposed to hate him for the rest of her life and is he supposed to pay for one indescretion for the rest of his?She chose to forgive him and be friendly and that is her choice.

    I agree with Deborah, in that it is a shame that all this played out in the public, with all the sideline self-appointed psychologists. What is unfortunate is that Rhianna was put in a position to be the face of domestic abuse…and a role model for young girls. That was crazy, you cannot just turn off your feelings on a whim or at a momemnts notice and moreso, just because that’s what everyone says you are supposed to do. I applaud anyone’s ability to move on and not harbor ill feelings. No two situations are identical. It is just plain stupid to model your life around the decisions someone makes for their life.
