News that Rihanna invited her ex Chris Brown to guest on a remix of her song "Birthday Cake" has fans wondering if the toxic twosome is reconciling. (Don't forget that Brown beat Rihanna after a pre-Grammy party in 2009.) If they did then they would not be the first corrosive couple in music. The history of modern music is littered with musical couples for whom breaking up has been hard to do.

If it was "obviously"  a suicide, then why were there no fingerprints on the gun?  The so called suicide note only stated he was leaving music.  He had three times the lethal dosage of heroin in his body, meaning he could barely blink let alone operate a shotgun.  Look up El Duce, the guy Love originally tried to hire to do it, funny how he was found dead by some rail road tracks three weeks after he was filmed admitting it all in Nick Broomfield's "kurt and courtney".  Kurt leaves Courtney, she gets half, Kurt dies ands he gets everything, not much of a motive I suppose! Bottom line, Do Your Homework before making ignorant and unequivacally presumtuous comments about someone who can't defend themselvesConfused

Kurt's dead, gtf over it.  Leave Whitney off your tasteless lists until the body's cold.
