Chris Brown and Rihanna are collaborating? Vibe reports that Brown has recorded two verses for a remix of the Rihanna song “Birthday Cake.” The unexpected announcement comes days after Brown’s controversial appearance (and victory) at Sunday’s Grammy awards, subsequent reports of Brown fans asking for his abuse on Twitter and continued talk of why Brown shouldn’t be forgiven for assaulting Rihanna in 2009.
With these two publicity hounds, it's hard to separate truth from fiction. A Rihanna fan forum asked one of Rihanna’s producers, Da Internz, on Twitter if Chris Brown was singing on Rihanna's track. Da Internz replied with a resounding “NOPE,” before deleting his tweet.
Rihanna, on the other hand, has not been quelling the rumors on her own Twitter feed. Instead she's been writing a series of cryptic messages about forgiving your enemies. “Music heals the world ... we need more!” one read.
