Nobody wants to relive that, but some ppl can't respect that!,' Rihanna tweets

November 29, 2010 6:44 PM ET

Rihanna cares about what young girls think about her — and it's most important not to seem "spiteful." At least that's the impression she's giving in a series of tweets related to her then-boyfriend Chris Brown's 2009 assault on her.

The tweets began when a Rihanna fan asked the singer to stop talking about the incident in interviews — adding, "How r people gonna move on?"

"AGREED!" Rihanna wrote. "People won't stop asking about it! It's fuckin' annoying! Nobody wants to relive that, but some ppl can't respect that!

"I get it," she continued. "They wanna raise awareness to young girls! But it ends up just making me look bitter, pitiful, spiteful and angry!"

Then, on Sunday, Brown sent a message to his and Rihanna's fans, asking them to ease back.

"Y'all starting to sound extremely childish! #teambreezy and #rihannanavy, it's pointless," he wrote. "Love team breezy & thank you rihannanavy for supporting ya girl."

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
