Big R&B Moments of 2012: Rihanna, Chris Brown Shock Fans With ‘Birthday Cake (Remix)’
Where do you begin with these two? Chris Brown and Rihanna have been soaking up the media's attention since they were cute teenagers going through puppy love. After Brown violently assaulted her in 2009, the frenzy still continued -- they broke up, made court appearances and dated others while in the limelight. Rihanna gained sympathy from her fans and became a domestic violence spokeswoman, even though she apparently didn't want to take on the role. Breezy took hard hits from critics and fans, and didn't make it any easier on himself when he took to Twitter to vent his frustrations. But then another rumor about the two hit in late 2011; the former couple were reportedly seeing each other again.
In 2012, the saga continued into a story not even the greatest fiction writer could pen. As a shock to everyone, the two released a remix to Rihanna's song 'Cake,' off her fifth album 'Talk That Talk.' Months later, the pop princess went on 'Oprah's Next Chapter' and revealed she still loved CB, the man who once beat her. Brown eventually broke up with his girlfriend Karreuche Tran, further fanning the flame that he and Rih Rih were an item once again.
Many times, through social networks, they reveal they have unfinished business -- more than one photo has circulated showing the two cozying up to one another. Rihanna and Chris Brown have not confirmed they're union, but who needs labels? It's clear this rebellious pair have something that keeps on bringing them together.
