It’s always sad to see relationships go wrong, especially when it’s been as public and sad as Chris Brown and Rihanna’s. In the midst of all this anger and sadness, one New York radio station has seen a way to capitalize off of the whole thing.
WBLI in New York is having a "Shred Your Ex" party the day before Friday the 13th, where you can shred pictures of your ex or Chris Brown’s CDs and posters, if you’re a homely shrew that no one could ever love. WBLI has also invited Rihanna’s fan club to the event.
Says WBLI operations manager Nancy Cambino of the event, "Valentine’s Day should stand for love so we find it fitting to make the Friday the 13th right before Valentine’s Day a day for revenge for those who were unlucky in love. Whether you’re a Rihanna fan or not, we can all empathize with being with someone who caused love to go wrong." That’s certainly in keeping with the meaning of Valentine’s Day.
If this is the kind of thing you’ve been waiting for jilted lover/Rihanna fan, and you live in New York or are willing to schlep there, the whole deal is going down on Feb. 13 at the BLI studios at 555 Sunrise Highway in West Babylon, NY. Be there or be magnanimous.
