Producer Evan Rogers, the music mogul who discovered pop star Rihanna, spoke to Entertainment Weekly about all of the unsolicited advice she has received from celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey and Tyra Banks regarding her domestic dispute with Chris Brown.
Rogers said the celebrities who have publicly urged Rihanna to break off her romance with Brown, aren’t helping the “Umbrella” singer, who had reconciled with her boyfriend after the alleged beating.
“It turns up the heat in terms of it seeming like the whole world is telling her what to do,” said Rogers. “At the end of the day, people forget that, at 21, your perspective is very different. These kinds of things can happen to anyone, whether you’re a celebrity or not.”
“She’s very aware of everything that’s going on. Just like anyone else, she watches TV, she goes online. And I think that it matters to her, but there’s a line that she walks between being human and caring when you hear these kinds of things, and separating your personal life from your professional life.”
