“Hahahaah I'm from NY and live a few minutes from Brentwood. Primarily white? Safe? That place is a Puerto Rican central in the state and has had more than a few violent uprisings against whiter and darker Puerto Ricans. NYTs need to chill.
And whats the big deal if she's pissed about the horrific tragedies going on in HER homeland? Until anyone writing on this (or that NYTs writer) has mass killings happen in their homeland, I think it'd be best to reserve judgment since you DON'T know what it feels like.”

“Perhaps what you wrote re: Brentwood, NY is sarcasm and I missed it.
Yet the Brentwood (the article is talking about) is in the Los Angeles area. Very wealthy area.”

“Um, those must be some hella-long "few minutes" my friend. Brentwood is as Tory as Tory gets in the US. The closest thing they had of color before MIA in Brentwood was O.J. Simpson and his former super white wife.
That incident is the only one of it's kind to occur in Brentwood for a very, very long time. And the incident involved, yes, one person of "color" - but he had the massive bank account so I don't know if that counts as defining "Puerto Rican central"”

“I believe the Brentwood the writer was referring to is the wealthy suburb of LA which is nestled between Beverly Hills and Bel Air. I've driven by there a few times and not being white (or wealthy) I definitely got the "GTFO" vibe of that place.”

“She's a homewrecker who had sex with what was a still married man who just had a son mind you. Disgusting”

“pssst! There's no such thing as a "homewrecker." A man walks because that is what HE wants to do....”

“The OPs post was limited to the implication that Keys was going to promote teenage pregnancy.”

“Was he still living/sleeping with his wife or were they apart for a while when he started up with Keys? Did she wreck the home or did she take up with a man who had already left his wrecked home? Life is never that simple and I am sure each of the 3 people in that drama can share their own version of the story.”

“smh i feel bad for her. She needs help...anyone that addicted to alcohol etc seriously needs an intervention, which it seems she has more than enough of. I hope she gets her act together, gets clean and finds happiness”
“You just made an assessment of over half the worlds population as being petty, judgmental and contemptibly narrow minded...so what does that make you? Sounds like a pretty harsh, ignorant judgment to me...”

“Stating the obvious by reading the posts on this thread as well as many other threads when a woman is the topic of discussion. Maybe u don't see or perhaps you are a willing participant.”

“I dont think its just a coincidence that she waited to talk about her "incident" with Chris Brown until the month her album is being released. Whether it was her or her team, but I think it was in poor taste. I work in the media and the way itll go is:
Diane asks: so tell me about what happened that night....
Rihanna responds: well I dont really even know....::gives details::
Diane asks: so what were you thinking by that point?
Rihanna: I dont really know.....
Diane asks: So is this right? I see here that you have a new album coming out. What are the songs about?
Rihanna: continues the shameless plug”
