glad he apologized. it's the least he can do. but i wish he weren't so obviously READING a script written by his publicist.

um, I don't think he's attractive at all and his behavior makes him even uglier.

if rihanna was your sister or friend, would all you forgivers out there be so quick to say forgive and forget? would you give the guy money? ever see or speak to him again? i doubt it. if ri was back together with chris, you would be calling her stupid and wouldn't have respect for her for going back to a batterer. for all those chris supporters, would you want to date him? i wouldn't. i don't believe people like chris really change but hope he can. for that hope, i say forgive but with strong reservation. i won't believe his apology entirely until i see some action to support it. i think he needs to earn his way back into society and the industry, not just have it handed to him b/c he said he was sorry. i am saddened and appauled by how many out there are so quick to forgive and pretend nothing happened. i don't think this needs to be held over his head forever, but he needs to prove his sincerity and worthiness in my opinion. then i can forgive and forget.

Okay guys, doesn't he have an album coming out? His career was a trainwreck and he simply realized he won't recover unless his image does. Notice that it took so long? It's not because his lawyers told him to stay quiet, it's because he put off this apology as a last resort. The only reason he's doing it is to make money and promote his new album. This is just typical PR crisis management-- it's textbook. Have your PR Director write out a carefully-worded apology, recite it in front of a mass audience, and bonus if you show some kind of emotion.

are we supposed to be proud of him for doing this? it's something that he should have done all those months ago, and well - regardless if he did something public like this or not, it's still something that he should have felt was 100% necessary.

Here's my side, and I don't mean to offend anyone. If Rihanna forgave him, what gives us the right to remain angry at him? We weren't the ones who were offended, she was. All of you are saying it's forced and it's too late, at least he did apologize to his fans, what else do you guys want? He plead to each one of you on his knees? People can change, all of you who's saying: once a hitter always a hitter. It's pretty lame, to be honest. If we all think that way, what would happen to the world huh?

ugh. Apologizing is better than not apologizing, but the whole "people make mistakes and he should totally be forgiven" seems pretty soft to me. What if it was your sister that had gotten assaulted? Your friend? Your neighbor? No matter what they said or did to provoke it, would you think this apology was enough? I don't think so. He has some real issues and I hope he's getting help, but to the next generation, I hope we're sending the message that abuse is not okay and not tolerated!!

Jessiebanana- I agree with you. I think one of the main reasons why so many women are defending Chris is because he is attractive. If Chris was ugly and busted looking I bet a lot of these women would not be so forgiving. It's funny how now he is so apologetic and ashamed of his behavior, yet DAYS after the beating he was living it up at Diddy's mansion in Miami!
