But this really tickles me because of that interview she did with Complex, remember? Last week, we learned that when Rihanna is asked about her relationship with Chris, she’ll tell you that “it’s nobody’s business.” But you know what? After she made that statement, the interviewer pressed the question, and here’s what happened:
Her voice, usually warm and cut with chuckles, turns cold. “Pardon me?” she replies, her eyebrow slightly raised. Even after the question is repeated, she hesitates to answer. The hands that moved up and down throughout the conversation, suddenly fall flat. “It’s the truth. Remember? You’re still asking me questions about it so clearly you don’t know.”
Girl, what? But I think she’s referencing something she said earlier in the interview:
“When I was making this record I had no intention except the truth. So whatever is there is real. It’s raw. That’s why the album is called Unapologetic. I held back before. I didn’t show a lot of myself. I was very guarded. I needed to be open and free and fearless. Basically say, ‘F-ck it.’ What’s the worst that can happen? They’ll hate me? They’ve done that before.”
So I think what she’s saying is that she doesn’t give a f-ck at all. She’s saying that her relationship with Chris really is nobody’s business, and so f-ck it, she doesn’t have to explain herself any further. I think.
But this is so funny to me because she’s the one who makes it everybody’s business. She shares all these photos, she says all these suggestive things, she puts everything out there. But the minute someone directly asks her about it, she shuts them down so hard. It would be like me tweeting pictures of apples and tweeting quotes about apples, and then tweeting things that were obviously directed at apples, and then blogging about apples, bringing apples very firmly into my professional life. And then someone else said “hey, what’s with the apples?” and I’d be like “MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, ASSHOLE.” It’s exactly like that. Except sadder.
