Rihanna Tells Elle You Can’t Keep Her Away From Chris Brown
You can blog all you want about how you can’t stand that Chris Brown is back in Rihanna’s life – but it won’t make a difference. In the new May issue of Elle Magazine, the 24 year-old singer (who appears in some majorly sexy photos) addressed the backlash she’s received for collaborating with and being friends with Chris Brown even after he was arrested for assaulting her back in 2009.
“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently,” she told Elle. “It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”
She says her breakup from Chris forced her to be more open: “It gave me guns. I was like, well, fuck. They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it. […] Now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”
Rihanna also talked about how hard it is to find the right guy: “I feel like it’s hard for everybody!” she said. “I don’t think it has anything to do with being famous. There’s just a major drought out there. […] But I just need to find the person who balances me out, because then things like my schedule won’t matter. I’ve done it before, so I know I can do it again.”
Is Rihanna taking the high road – or is she just oblivious? I want to think she’s the better person for forgiving Chris…but sometimes her tweets make me think that’s just wishful thinking.
