Rihanna: Role Model No More?

Shontelle, who recently released her debut album "Shontelligence," recognized fans' need for Rihanna to explain what occurred with Brown.

"Sometimes people say, 'I'm not trying to be a role model,' but it comes with the territory," she said. "Once you're in the spotlight, people look up to you. If you're in a position where you can set a good example, that's what you should try to do."

R&B singer Usher -- someone Brown has emulated through his career -- slammed the 19-year-old for photos that showed him smiling and riding around on a Jet Ski in Miami this weekend.

"C'mon, Chris. Have a little bit of remorse, man," Usher said, according to Usmagazine.com. "The man's on Jet Skis? Like, just relaxing in Miami?"

50 Cent's Take on Brown

Last week, rapper 50 Cent speculated on the future of both Brown and Rihanna's careers.

"I don't want to say it's over, but it will be different. ... He can't have that clean-cut image anymore," he said about Brown. "I don't think he should say anything right now. Like the apology statement he put out ... there's no way the public will embrace that."

As for Rihanna, 50 Cent hopes she'll get back to the tour circuit and recording studio soon.

"I don't think she needs to hide. She didn't do anything wrong," he said.
