Happy 21st Birthday, Rihanna.
Today is RiRi's 21st birthday. She had been scheduled to have a huge celebration for this momentous day, but has since cancelled the festivities after (as Chris Brown says) "what transpired". Now, that's what I call an apology.
There has been a little talk about how the photo of Rihanna given to TMZ might be a fake. Suuuure. That's why the L.A.P.D. has released this statement:
"...the LAPD has launched an internal investigation to find who the hell sold (or leaked) the pic to TMZ. They issued a statement last night asking for the public's help in finding how, what, who, why, etc... They said: "The photograph has the appearance of one taken during an official domestic violence investigation. The Los Angeles Police Department takes seriously its duty to maintain the confidentiality of victims of domestic violence. A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination." Sounds like it's the real thing to me.
Compare this picture which was taken at Clive Davis's pre-Grammy party just hours before Brown beat Rihanna about the face and head.
