From Radar Online:

The Caribbean Queen shed some light on the situation in an interview with On Air with Ryan Seacrest Thursday, explaining the rationale behind their puzzling pair of performances on each other’s new tracks, her “Birthday Cake” and “Turn Up the Music,” three years after he brutally pummeled her following a pre-Grammy party in Hancock Park, a suburb of Los Angeles.

“I already spoke to him about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because that’s the only person I could see doing it,” Rihanna, the best-selling digital artist of all-time, told Seacrest.

She added that “despite everything else,” Brown’s the top selling R&B star in the world and a no-brainer to collaborate with on a professional level. (On the controversial dance hit, he sings to Rihanna, “Girl I wanna f*** you right now. Been a long time, I’ve been missing your body.”)

Brown, in turn, asked her to appear on the remix to his song, “Turn Up the Music” — “One for my fans, one for his fans,” she explained.

Subtly referring to the beating she endured at Brown’s hands — which he’s still on probation for — Rihanna said “there shouldn’t be a divide between my fans and his fans.

“It’s music and it’s innocent.”

So there shouldn’t be a divide between Rihanna‘s fans and Chris‘s fans. I’m not quite sure I get it. First, I didn’t realize there were actual Chris fans willing to admit they were Chris fans out there (it’s like, come on. Even if you’re a fan of his music, how can you even be SUCH a fan that you’re willing to publicly admit it? Everyone I know that respects Chris Brown as an artist – and only an artists – is way embarrassed to even admit that shit. That’s the kind of stuff they keep to themselves), and second, why is Rihanna even touching this topic with a ten-foot pole? Is she preparing the world for the oh-so-shocking revelation that the two are hooking up again? Is that what this is? Because even though people are probably shockingly disappointed, I don’t think they’re shockingly shocked. Excuse me while I go soak my eyes in borax.

  • Ugh.

    I would really prefer that Chris Brown no longer exist. And while I don’t want to interfere with Rihanna’s affairs, she should not be working with him.

    I think that it is dreadful that someone can do something like that to someone else and not be guaranteed a prison sentence. Probation and community service are what you should get for running over a stopsign, not for committing a heinous act of domestic violence. Rihanna’s poor judgment aside, why is he still allowed out and about?
