From Rolling Stone:
Rihanna has opened up like never before about getting back together with her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, and what it means for her public image.
“I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” she tells contributing editor Josh Eells in the new issue of Rolling Stone, out Friday, January 31st. “I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”
The couple’s public reconciliation comes less than four years since Brown assaulted Rihanna the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards. Brown plead guilty to assault and performed community service, but he remains on probation.
“When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world,” Rihanna says. “You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about shit. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”
And Rihanna says that if Brown were ever to display a hint of his past behavior towards her, she is ready to walk.
“He doesn’t have the luxury of f–king up again,” she says. “That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
Ooh, Chris Brown doesn’t have the luxury of f-cking up again. I’m sure that’s going to be in the forefront of his mind when he goes off on a rage-filled explosion of fists and teeth—I’m sure he’s going to be thinking, “Oh, wait, that’s right; I don’t have the luxury of f-cking up again, but I do have the luxury of boning another silly chick with self-esteem issues, so there’s that, too.”
Later on in the interview, she insinuates that Chris should have been pretty broken up about losing her the first time around—or at least, that’s what she was intending by keeping her distance for a few weeks to start:
“I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that. So when that (stuff) came back it hit me like a ton of bricks. Like, God, you’ve got to be kidding right now. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn’t bury the way I felt.”
In short? This girl is a complete idiot. Lena Dunham got it right—Rihanna’s just dumb and pathetic. That’s all.

You think she would be so embarrassed to even associate with him !!!! She has serious head problems so maybe be they make a good couple but no one wants to hear about their relationship because it makes normal people sick !!!!
I don’t understand these girls who say “he regrets hitting me, i KNOW he’ll never do it again” it’s like, who are you trying to convince? If my b-f (god love him) EVER laid a hand on me i would be out that door so fast and would NEVER come back no matter how hard he begged. Chris Brown seems like he’s taking a dark path in life and it’s really depressing seeing all these influential stars acting out and taking no responsibility for their actions (yes,YOU lindsay lohan) Not the best role-models! Rant over!!
The girl is a moron. Instead of rebuilding her life, getting a useful education, and creating a legacy by helping young abuse survivors she uses her time to chase a man who has publicly admitted to “loving” her…right along with his other girlfriend.
Rihanna’s mother must hate her. She has yet to step in and help Rihanna free herself from the abusive leech. Trash breeds trash.
Trash. Bag. You let a man beat you without consequence and practically allow him to f*ck a girl in your face. Shameful.
I had a horrible childhood. A lot of people do. Problem was, as I got older, I couldn’t always tell what was “normal”. Sure I knew if a guy beat you until you were in the hospital, you were being abused, but at the same time, I tolerated a lot of other types of abuse, including physical, because I didn’t know anyone who lived differently. I had never lived differently. I could justify what was being done to me, because I name-called, hit, broke stuff etc… too when I was angry. It was “normal”. Change came eventually, slowly, and one day I made a friend with a woman who had a story like mine who was now in a loving, stable relationship. She was a great role-model. I am now “normal” and unless I told you my story, you’d never guess it. Rihanna is going to learn the hard way, but it is not over yet. It will be harder for her, with all the “yes men” in her life and the public spotlight, but I hope she meets someone one day in a great relationship and wants it bad enough for herself to make the leap.
Well said sunshine, ballsy too!
Thank you, and well said.
Never thought I’d agree with that ugly little troll, Lena Dunham, but I gotta say she’s right on the money about this dumb bitch. It’s too bad she’ll end up learning the hard way what an ass-hat her man is.
That’s not the only thing that hit her like a ton of bricks! (God, she just made that one so easy.)
Unfortunately, SHE doesn’t have the luxury of him f-ing up again either, cuz she’ll be dead.
