Shock and Awe. Some are still reeling from the Rihanna-Chris Brown hug and smooch at last week’s MTV VMAs. For obsessive fans, the night in 2009 when Brown assaulted Rihanna seems all too fresh. But more shocking than Rihanna recently telling Oprah Winfrey that Brown remains “the love of my life” is Brown’s new ink: a tattoo of a female who has been severely beaten, with full lips, arched eyebrows and other details that resemble Rihanna.
Sources close to Brown told TMZ that the tat is not a bizarre homage to Rihanna, but a random woman. Or maybe it’s just a really bad tattoo, which wouldn’t be the first.
