Rihanna is breaking her silence on her reconciliation with Chris Brown in a new cover story with Rolling Stone Magazine.

The “Nobody’s Business” singer opens up on the many opinions circulating about their reunion, and why she ultimately felt like giving their relationship another shot. Via The YBF:

On even her best friend not being allowed to talk to her about Chris Brown: “I just felt like, why bother? Nobody else is going through it. Nobody would understand.”

On being mad at Chris Brown for a really long time: “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.”

On knowing she would be opening herself up to criticism for reuniting with Chris Brown: “I decided it was more important for me to be happy, and 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.

On people being upset about her reunion with Chris Brown: “When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world. 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 (stuff). We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”

On the opinion that Chris Brown still hasn’t changed, based on his behavior: “I know it comes off like that. And it doesn’t help. For a long time he was really angry, and he felt like he couldn’t get away from it, no matter what he did. But there’s so many reasons why I ever reconsidered having him in my life. He’s not the monster everybody thinks. He’s a good person. He has a fantastic heart. He’s giving and loving. And he’s fun to be around. That’s what I love about him – he always makes me laugh. All I want to do is laugh, really – and I do that with him.”

On believing that Chris Brown has changed: “Of course everybody has their opinion about him, because of what he’s done. That will always be there. But he made a mistake, and he’s paid his dues. He’s paid so much. And I know that’s not a place he would ever want to go back to. And sometimes people need support and encouragement, instead of ridicule and criticism and bashing.”

On being the one to support Chris Brown: “Wait. You think I’m here to rehabilitate Chris? No, no, no. That is not my purpose. Trust me. I could have done that from the jump if I thought that was my job. My job was to take care of myself – and I did. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think Chris was ready.”

On people being worried about her with Chris Brown: “I know. And trust me – it makes me feel great to know that people care. I guess it’s just something that will show with time. There’s nothing I could say that would convince you right now. But we’re in a great place. And I can’t ever see us going back.”

On how much she will put up with from Chris Brown going forward: “Listen, I’ll tell you right now: I don’t have to take it. If he gives me that again, here’s what I give him: nothing. I just walk away. He doesn’t have that luxury of (expletive) up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”

On calling her album Unapologetic as an answer to everyone who thinks she should be a better role model: “I could never tell a 10-year-old to look at me, because I know I’m not perfect. That’s not what I signed up for.”

On reports that she’d fallen out with Katy Perry over Perry’s decision to date John Mayer: “Katy Perry can date anyone she wants. Besides, who the (expletive) am I to say anything? I could never give relationship advice to anybody!”

On if she wants to have babies someday: “Hell, yeah. But I wish I could order them.”

It is important to live your truth but we hope Rihanna and Chris can do so in a relationship that’s positive, peaceful and healthy for both parties.

    I’m just sick of hearing about it. Rihanna through her online presence invites people to be apart of every part of her life and then talks about how it’s no anybody’s “bitness” about her and Chris. I’m sick of celebrity worship. I have my own ish to worry about other then these two attention whores.

    Take this as a cautionary tale:

    Fathers, raise your daughters or else men like Brown will.

  • It’s obvious that Rhi is choosing passion over what is considered respectful, balanced and healthy and I say kudos to her. Passion is that delicate mixture of pleasure and pain that we all need to feel to grow and feel aliveness. She’s in her twenties and this is the ideal time for her to learn the necessary lessons that come with taking high risks in love.

    The worst life you can live is living a life for someone else and unfortunately there are a lot of lurkers behind the screen who are doing just that: living for the validations and opinions of others. And Rhi Rhi is just the right person for finger waggers to project their guilt and shame onto.

    What saddens me about this situation is that just like Rihanna, Karrueche knows exactly what they have now (her & Chris) and she doesn’t wanna lose that. I wish Rih the best and hope it works out for her sake.

    It’s amazing how this chick can talk about every part of her life and be considered real, while another bigger star, no names mentioned, reveals her miscarriage and everyone says she’s seeking attention, and not considered open…
