Rihanna on Chris Brown: ‘We Know Exactly What We Have Now’

For the first time, Rihanna has really opened up about her on-again relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, and how despite what anyone thinks, she’s going to do what she wants. She claims Chris will never hurt her again, and if she sees any of his old behavior coming out again, then she knows when to leave.

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 the new issue of Rolling Stone. “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. “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 fucking 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.”

I think it’s pretty messed up that she’s back with him. You just don’t want to put yourself in that kind of situation, I think everyone can agree on that. I hope it never gets to a violent point again, but you have to think that it will.

Rihanna celebrates her past 7 albums with 7 Complex covers!

Rihanna covers the February issue of Complex magazine, and to celebrate the event, they shot seven covers to represent her seven albums. Her latest album, ‘Unapologetic’ is represented by the Complex cover above.

In the interview, Rihanna opens up about her obsession with Instagram, about her ‘Unapologetic’ album, and her duet with Chris Brown.

Here are some clips from the interview:

On her obsession with Instagram: “Get a good light. Get a good angle on what’s working for you that day. If it’s boobs, make sure you hit that. If it’s face, make sure it’s fierce. It’s narcissistic, but whatever–everyone does it. I’m capturing personality… Everybody has their thing they like or don’t like to see. It’s all in your head. That’s why people take their own pictures, because it’s difficult for someone else to capture what you seek.”

On media perception: “People take the little bit of information they’re fed, and they draw a picture of who you are. Most of the time it’s wrong.”

On being part of Team Breezy: “We don’t start the trouble, but that’s how we’re defending ourselves–by saying some slick sh-t. That’s how I’ve always been. I was so rude when I was a little girl. I got my ass beat by my mother for that. Most of the time it was because of my mouth.”

On why she is Unapologetic: “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**k it.’ What’s the worst that can happen? They’ll hate me? They’ve done that before.”

On her & Brown’s duet, “Nobodies Business”: “It’s nobody’s business,” she says flatly. [Journo repeats his inquiry.] 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.”

Rihanna goes nude for GQ Magazine, they name her ‘Obsession of the Year’

Channing Tatum has been named “Movie Star of the Year” by GQ, and Ben Affleck has been named “Filmmaker of the Year”. In their third cover of the month, Rihanna was named “Obsession of the Year”, and today we’re getting our first look at all three covers!

I like all three of their choices for covers. Channing definitely deserves the cover for ‘Movie Star of the Year’ after the year he’s had (‘Magic Mike’, ’21 Jump Street’). He’s also reportedly going to be announced as People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive any day now.

Ben Affleck certainly deserves the ‘Filmmaker of the Year’ award. After seeing ‘Argo’ – which was BRILLIANT – I think he deserves all the accolades he gets.

As of today, only the Rihanna interview has been released, which you can read it here at GQ. Some highlights via Celebitchy:

Rihanna on what she wants in a relationship: “I like to feel like a woman. I have to be in control in every other aspect of my life, so I feel like in a relationship, like I wanted to be able to take a step back and have somebody else take the lead.”

…on love: “Love makes you go places you probably wouldn’t ever go, had it not been for love. But I think everybody still has their limits.”

…on how she sees herself: “Sometimes a person looks at me and sees dollars. They see numbers and they see a product. I look at me and see art. If I didn’t like what I was doing, then I would say I was committing slavery. ”

…on the fight between Drake and Chris Brown: “There’s no proof of that being for my love. That’s my answer to that question.”
