If you visit Rihanna's webpage, you'll listen to some of her latest songs.

H E R E you can read about violence against women and learn its signs, according to US Government:
If the person you love or live with does any of these things to you, it's time to get help:

* monitors what you're doing all the time
* criticizes you for little things
* constantly accuses you of being unfaithful
* prevents or discourages you from seeing friends or family, or going to work or school
* gets angry when drinking alcohol or using drugs
* controls how you spend your money
* controls your use of needed medicines
* humiliates you in front of others
* destroys your property or things that you care about
* threatens to hurt you, the children, or pets, or does hurt you (by hitting, beating, pushing, shoving, punching, slapping, kicking, or biting)
* uses or threatens to use a weapon against you
* forces you to have sex against your will
* blames you for his or her violent outbursts
Translate the signs of abuse into Spanish. Do you think Rihanna is suffering abuse? Why?

Hello. the principal signs the violence are in spanish:
-Te controla todo el tiempo lo que haces.
-Te critica por pequeñas cosas.
-Constantemente te acusa de ser infiel.
-Te impide ver a tus amigos o familiares, o ir al trabajo o a la escuela.
-Se enfada cuando bebe alcohol o se droga.
-Controla el dinero que te gastas.
-Controla las medicinas que tomas.
-Te humilla delante de otros.
-Destruye tus cosas o cosas que tu aprecias mucho.
-Amenaza con herirte a ti, a los niños o mascotas. O te hiere directamente:golpear,empujar,puñetazos,bofetadas,patadas,morder...
-Utiliza o amenaza usar un arma contra ti.
-Te obliga a tener sexo contra tu voluntad.
-Te culpa de sus actos violentos.

I think Rihanna is suffering abuse because her boyfriend punched she, hitting she for the window´s car and he try eject her from the car.
