Katy Perry can't sing at all. I was willing to give her the benefit of the doubt after that shitty performance on X Factor, but tonight sealed it, she's an autotune overproduced faker.

True, she did receive sympathetic press, but the Chris Brown incident was after she was fairly established. She had sold millions prior to the incident. Not saying it didn't give her a boost, but it hardly made her.

About Rhianna - if you remember, her interview on 20/20 was probably her only interview when she talked about this situation - she kept silent before that, and she told everything and answered all questions in this interview -I think with Diane Sawyer. I found this interview very impressive, honest and articulate, and I really like her ever since and have lot of respect for her. I don't think she milked this story, she kept her silence for very long time and did huge interview only before promotional tour for her album started. As for song with Eminem - considering this incident with Brown hapened years ago, and very few people still care about it, I don't think she is milking her abuse for attention. She just wanted to do a potential hit with one of the most famous and succesful artists. She should refuse offers like that just because she also was victim of domestic violence? This is ridiculous.

But her agents, managers and PR people were busy planting stories in every entertainment publication and TV celebrity gossip show. Because she was just as much guilty of domestic violence as him, but they wanted her version of the story to get out first.

Media buzz was insane, but doesn't necessary mean she and her people were behind it. She was incredibly upset when pictures of her beaten face were leaked because of police (stay classy, TMZ). There were a lot of information, opinions, but she was silent in all that till this big interview.

As for domestic violence from her - where this story came from? I never saw pictures of Chris Brown beaten, with shapes of wheel on his face. But I saw her pictures. And Brown himself and his side acted just afwul in this story. Not only he never showed any remorse, he also leaked their personal pictures, trying to stop her from going to court. I believe those reports about her being guilty of domestic violence probably also came from him and his side. He's pathetic asshole and I hope his career will never recover.
