Rihanna covers the latest issue of Elle Magazine, and in the interview she gives a very candid look into her life, including her relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
There have been rampant rumors that the couple have rekindled their romance, and even though the public has reacted negatively to the news, the singer insists she’ll “do what I want”.
In reaction to how people felt about her reuniting with Brown after he attacked her:
“I respect what other people have to say. The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. 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. I don’t hate them for it. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”
On her 2009 assault by Chris Brown:
The singer admitted it was “the hardest time of my life. I was angry, sad, confused, torn. I was still in love. And I needed to talk about it.”
She claims recording the Rated R album in 2009 was like therapy:
“That was the only way I could get peace, because it was in my head, and I couldn’t leave it there.”
She believes her attack made her a stronger person:
“It gave me guns. I was like, ‘Well, f***.’ 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. I wanted people to know who I am. Whatever they take that to be, good or bad, I just want them to know the truth. It’s like, one less skeleton in the closet, one less burden, one less secret; now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”
Sources close to Rihanna fear she’s rebelling:
A source told the New York Post, ‘Her management banned her from reuniting with Chris, but she said she’ll do whatever the hell she wants to’.
Apparently the You Da One performer’s camp fear that she will go on to record an album with Brown just to spite Roc Nation who have desperately tried to stop the two from meeting.
The source continued, ‘Rihanna is rebelling. She says they have been working her too hard and she wants some time to herself.
‘They fear she’ll secretly record an album with Brown, just to defy them.’
Although Rihanna has said she is ‘single and happy’, some of her recent posts on Twitter would suggest differently.
On March 31, she tweeted: ‘If u don’t want me, someone else will… if I’m not good enough!’
She then followed that post with another tweet which could possibly spell out her feelings for Brown.
The tweet read: ‘I’m makin’ u wait….I need to know if ya worthy’.
