The budding friendship of Katy Perry and domestic violence victim Rihanna caught Blindie’s eye yesterday as the two singers were photographed together on a boat in Rihanna’s native Barbados.
Rumored to be inseparable since her alleged beating from ex Chris Brown, Perry seems like just the kind of empowered chick Rihanna needs in her life. Having listened to the “I Kissed a Girl” singer’s album on loop since its debut, Blindie feels Perry’s message of empowerment and self-worth will keep RiRi away from Brown!
“It’s nice to have good girlfriends,” Perry told MTV. “I pride myself on having cool chicks in my life, and [Rihanna’s] a cool chick…I love [Rihanna’s] style … She’s one of those unaffected people.”
“Love doesn’t hurt,” Oprah said on her show Friday, announcing she will discuss domestic violence in an upcoming show. “I want to do a show about it, dedicated to all the Rihannas of the world.”
Rihanna’s reconciliation with Brown after her February 8th beating from her superstar boyfriend (who was charged with two felonies last week) surprised her family and fans alike, sparking a public debate about whether he’ll do it again
Speaking directly into the camera, Oprah said, “If a man hits you once, he will hit you again. He will hit you again.”
As the story behind Chris Brown‘s violent attack on Rihanna unfolds, digitally altered photos of the bruised and beaten singer have been circulating on websites and through email with the heading “OMG LOOK AT RIHANNA’S FACE!!!”
TMZ discovered the images were photoshopped fakes and even unearthed the original one.
Actual police photos show Rihanna suffered bite marks on her fingers and arms, contusions on her face, a bloody nose and swollen eyes.
