NEW MUSIC: Rihanna f. Chris Brown – ‘Nobody’s Business’

Rihanna and Chris Brown want to make each other their own, and they claim that “it ain’t nobody’s business” on the duo’s latest collaboration from Ri’s new album, Unapologetic. The problem is the song itself makes it everyone’s business.

I believe every person has a right to privacy, so long as he or she exercises it. If you don’t want people to know or speculate about what happens in your world behind closed doors, then so be it. But, the doors are either open or shut – you can’t have both. It is unreasonable to sing, talk, tweet or communicate otherwise one second about your dirty laundry, and then the next conveniently label it off guards.

Many artists, including Rihanna and Chris Brown, violate this notion. These celebrities don’t want to talk about their personal lives, unless they’re making money off of it. RiRi or Brown will never answer a question about the other in an interview, yet the Barbados singer has no problem hawking her new album with this song because it benefits her bottom line.

The only bottom line is that singers set themselves up for a double-standard with this practice. It sends the wrong message to both the media and fans: My personal life is nobody’s business, unless it’s good for my business.
