When a promising singer, Mischa Green, is attacked by her hip-hop star boyfriend, the detectives and ADA Barba work to build a case. Despite Detective Benson's efforts, Green refuses to aid in the prosecution and continues to put herself in harm's way. As the case spirals into a media frenzy, Mischa and those close to her pay the ultimate price.
After last week's engrossing episode, this was kinda dull to me. Especially with the really obvious Rihanna/Chris Brown connection - to be honest, I don't even care anymore, so I'm kinda surprised to see it still be relevant.
The most offensive thing for me in this episode, was that the SVU peeps actually gave Perez Hilton airtime - he's scum.
I liked Munch as the stand-in Captain, though. And Finn was awesome as usual. In fact, everyone was pretty much on their A-game, except the case was so bleurgh to me. Guys, don't get caught up in the celebrity circus. All that shit has become so ubiquitous nowadays, it really doesn't need to be in SVU too. Though I suppose this is SVU's version of a very special episode, or something.
I love the title though, dripping with irony. It would have been wonderful as soundtrack to the last part, much better than whatever tiny fake Rihanna was singing.
