Rihanna recently was interviewed about Chris Brown. She said "I still love him....I think he was the love of my life."
By contrast, Pink's latest album is full of references to men who don't act right. some of this might be based on her husband, an x games star with whom she had a baby last year, and with whom she has had marriage counseling. Pink's attitude towards men seems to be: I don't care how pretty you are. I'm a rock star, and if you can't do right, I don't need you.
Caveat: it's tough in show biz to actually have an adult relationship these days. But still, I'm a bit baffled by Rihanna's attachment to a young man who pounded her face a couple years ago. in my mind, you don't get a re-do after that. This is not the year 1012, this the year 2012. At the risk of enraging some Rihanna fans, I will just say it: Pink is a better role model on this one.
