You can't really say she's work for hitting the person. She was defending herself and trying to get back to doing a show for all sane fans. When someones grabbing you like that, its usually not a good sign

I don't really care about Rihanna, but my main concern in that video is why the mic didn't screech at the audience when it hit something.

Was the mic broken? Does it need medical attention?

If they're not going to let go what did they expect? If a stranger holds onto you like that it's reasonable that you'd be afraid and try to detach from them anyway you can.

The only reason why this was such a big deal is because Rihanna is female, and society/media expects females to be this kind/gentle nurturing humans. If it was a male popstar doing this, it wouldn't be such a big deal.

I mean, didn't Justin bieber ran over a paparazzi the other day with his car? Yet nobody's making a thread about that.


No. It would be and even bigger deal if the popstar in question was a male and the fan in question was a female.

I think that the reason that this is so big a deal is because Rihanna has been a victim of abuse.

But the reality of popstars hitting fans during concerts is that things like this happen a lot more than we realize. There's always those overenthusiastic fans and those concert security personnel that don't react fast enough.

For some reason when Rihanna happens to get caught doing it, the situation blow over.

That's a really good question...

One reason I do not like, nor do I support popular people (other than Actors at a movie of course.) I don't buy or listen to their songs, I just don't like them because they act fake on stage, then they assault you when you get excited to see them. They start off usually with good intentions, but I have yet to see anyone who could handle the attention they get. Justin Bieber (sp?) is a prime example. Spoiled and stuck up now that he thinks he is above everyone else.

With all the assaults, killings, and other stuff happening in the US, I don't blame her. If someone grabbed me and didn't let me go, I would've done the same thing.

Perhaps he wanted to be hit by her? Some people like that type of thing.

I think calling it "self-defence" is a bit overboard.

Disclaimer: I fucking hate Rihanna; not because of fame, not because I'm an 18 year old who hasn't entered college yet, but quite frankly, because I just associate her with today's music, which is fucking horrible. I also take in to account the fan's behaviors, which based on my experiences, are rendered innocent.

If she simply hit him, it would be qualified as self-defense. Take a weapon, and the idea of self-defense is officially shattered if the target is not a convicted criminal. I'm pretty sure that person was just an ecstatic fan.

If a guy did this, lawsuits would be flying ALL over the place. Not trying to start the sexist argument. Thing is, if Justin Beiber did this, his fans would support him as much as Rihanna's would hers. They're all human beings. They're no different than us commoners who don't get paid millions to repeat the same lines for four minutes.

Any other human being did that under the exact same circumstances, and that's grounds for a trial. She's famous, but can't handle this kind of fandom? Fandom's been pushed far worse than a 5 second hand grab. I also read she gave one fan a lap dance? Well, if that's the case, this is gonna sound wrong but...Dress like a hoe, act like a hoe, should we treat you like a hoe?

Also, the physical abuse argument is invalid. I know many people besides myself who have been abused, physically, mentally, and/or emotionally, and this is the complete opposite of how many of them act. On the other side, I do know a few friends who are not as well off as me and many of my other friends are. Traumas do NOT give you the excuse to do the exact same thing to others. By that logic, if I have a kid, I'm perfectly allowed to abandon my kid and go drug out with my friends as my mother did. I'm also not required to pay them any child support, and it is perfectly okay for me to hide behind and live off the government. Mind you, I possess almost zero logic, but I think that idea is basically the same.

Sure many people do go through trauma and later attempt said experiences on others, but said trauma still does not rid you of any responsibility. The best trauma can carry you to in the court of law would be to an insanity plea I suppose. But that is not insanity, and her physical abuse does not excuse her from that. As fandom has been worse in the past, I'd have to say, considering he or she paid to be at that concert, I think five seconds of hand-shaking is the least you could do. If I'm correct, she did give another fan a lap-dance and a boner. So, you expect people to not grab on to you after that kind of performance?

Mind you, I grew up in a family that raised me with what today's brats call abuse. I was given discipline with belts and paddles, and even spent time in areas where gangs ran rampant, so please, no one tell me I don't know what the line is when it comes to physical contact and self-defense. Discipline is not what I referred to as physical abuse, as physical abuse is the one personal issue that I won't go over in an internet forum, but I assure you I have been through my fair share of shit, and in my honest opinion...You gave one fan a lap dance, but can't tolerate another's handshake for more than five seconds? Where the fuck are you drawing this line? Because last time I checked, anyone who's perfectly capable of giving a random fucker a lap dance should be more than happy to hold another random fucker's hand for less than ten seconds. I mean, he didn't rape you, give you black eyes, or destroy your womb, did he?

It wouldn't surprise me if Rihanna was lip-syncing and the mic wasn't even turned on.

LOL still spamming your shit everywhere. I have a tip, to make it more subtle, make a thread about whether or not size matters. Then your video might be related.

I don't really think its even a big deal. From the way she swung her hand it looked more like it was meant to be a threat than a hit. Of course if someone famous does anything that may or may not have been out of line, the public is gonna explode on it anyway.

Well being the star she is, the job can be rather creepy, because of all the fans that go overboard and become stalkers and such, who knows if he was one or not.
Maybe she went a bit too far with hitting the fan, because I think just forcibly pulling the hand back would be sufficient enough -.-

After watching the video, I still don't really know the "whole" story- why she whacked the person in the head with a microphone and what that person was doing. We'll probably never know the "truth" with the media nowadays. But either way, it makes her look extremely unprofessional, and that's all I care about.

Never really cared for her anyways.
