Rihanna and Chris Brown Take the Stage at the 2012 Grammy Awards — Three Years After Assault
Awards shows love drama, so it’s probably not a coincidence that Chris Brown and Rihanna performed within a half-hour of each other at Sunday’s Grammy Awards — three years after their pre-Grammys fight in 2009 that led to a brutal assault.
Chris performed a medley of songs, then Rihanna sang "We Found Love” and “Princess of China” with another Chris — Chris Martin of Coldplay. Rihanna started "We Found Love” on a somber note by sitting down, then lying on the floor in the fetal position. In her video for "We Found Love," Rihanna is shown in a bad romance with a Chris Brown lookalike, leading fans to believe she was not-so-secretly singing about her ex.
