New Yorker Blog Chortles Heartily at Rihanna Beating


The New Yorker’s not prone to offending our sensibilities (although we have been known to cock an eyebrow at an especially impertinent Anthony Lane pun now and again), so we were surprised to find a post to their Goings On blog about the planned Rihanna–Chris Brown collaboration that read, “There is no — repeat, no — truth to the rumor that their duet will be a remake of ‘He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)’” — and included video of Sonny and Cher performing “The Beat Goes On.” We’ve read New Yorker cartoons funnier than that.
