Rihanna's music doesn't match her actions

By now, you're probably tired of hearing about the Rihanna/Chris Brown smack down.

And I'm tired of it too.

But I felt compelled to write this as I listened to her song "Take A Bow."

In that song, Rihanna sounds like a confident, strong woman who doesn't take any shit. She tells her cheating lover to get the hell out before she turns the sprinklers on and fucks up all of his clothes.

But in reality, Rihanna took back the manchild who allegedly hit her. Maybe her strong girl music is another reason why people were so up in arms about her allegedly going back to Brown.

What people fail to realize is that battered women often go back to their abusers, it's just mostly done out of the glare of the media spotlight.
