Rihanna FINALLY Speaks Out On Collaborating With Chris Brown Again!

| Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteChris Brown


Wow. We have to hand it to her!

Despite all of the rumors about these two and the controversy this collaboration provoked, she really seems to have an objective, level-head about it all, and we really have to respect her for that!

For the first time since performing with Chris Brown on his track Turn Up The Music and hers Birthday Cake, Rihanna is speaking out about her decision to reach out to her former boyfriend and abuser, and clearly, she has moved past the horrific violence she endured!

She explains:

“The first song that came about was ‘Birthday Cake.’ I mean we ended up recording them at the same time and executing them together, but I reached out to him about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because that’s the only person that really–it made sense to do the record. Just as a musician despite everything else that was going to be the person. You know I thought about rappers, and I’ve done that so many times, and the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown. So I wanted him on the track, and then in turn he was like ‘Why don’t you do the remix to my track?’ and it was a trade off. We did two records. One for my fans. One for his fans, and that way our fans can come together. There shouldn’t be a divide. You know? It’s music, and it’s innocent.”

And there you go!

We may not feel entirely comfortable with these two being friendly again, but as the victim in the situation, it's Rihanna's prerogative to forgive him and move on with her life, and we pass no judgment on her for that!

What do U think?? Does Rihanna's perspective make sense?

    Motherfucker, please! The last person I'd be reaching out to to collaborate with is a guy who beat the fuck out of me. Who is she fooling?

  2. 2

    She's stupid. That is just plain DUMB. It's quite obvious she has issues and she is making herself look dumber everyday.

    didn't even bother to read it because her decision showed me that this woman who had so much respect has turned into a loser. Her behavior lately shows that she is trying to show the world they can stick it and now I kinda hope she gets back with cb she deserves him.

  6. 6

    So basically she traded her self-respect and the respect of others to have the "hottest R&B artist on her song). I guess to her, money is more important the dignity.

  7. 7

    You know what would have been an even better "gift" to her fans - especially her young ones? Setting a decent example.

  8. 8

    It's hard to feel sorry for this girl if she's pretty much spitting in people's faces by still having a relationship with her abuser. I can't respect her for being stupid!

  9. 9

    Re: gwen01 – Totally agree with you. Lost all respect for her. She's not a survivor, she's weak and stupid.

  10. 10

    Talk about having absolutely NO respect for herself. She's not in this for the music. It's all about the $$$$$$$$$.

  11. percy says – reply to this


    BS! She is obviously in love with him.

  12. 12

    Rihanna is a victim of abuse. Chris is an abuser. There is no excuse for that. BUT, when you consider that this was a mutally volatile relationship between teenagers and that Rihanna haas stated that she 'likes it rough', I think she should be held accountable for her behaviour in the relationship as well. It is like she trained a dog to be vicious and then got bit. I know it is not the same - a dog cannot reason, and Chris is ultimately responsible for his own actions, but just as Chris had to go to anger management classes, Rihanna needs some counselling in relationships as well. People say he is bad for her, I think it goes the other way as well.

  13. 13

    So disappointed in her! She's so gifted and must feel so bad about herself to assist in his career in anyway. I would absolutely discourage my daughter from having Rihanna as her role model now. If she gets back together with him, he will eventually kill her.

  14. 14

    That's a lovely way to say: "Our record company wanted to make a shit ton of money on my back and that way, my fans can buy his products and his fans can buy my products again."

  15. 15

    Who cares about this overrated skank? Cannot stand her!!!!!!!!!!

  16. 16

    God your fucking stupid. A level head about it? Idiot. Acting like this is innocent. She's fucking him and everyone knows it. Plus, dickhead homo's like you will never call her out by telling her that she is a role model, and by acting like everything is fine with this piece of shit fucker, it tells all the stupid young bitches out there that it's ok to get your ass beat by a man. God you are a fucking vile fuck, you and Chris Brown should blow eachother.

  17. 17

    Ah Bull, ah shit. Hey you beat my ass but lets do a couple songs together to bring our fans together. PLEASE.

  18. 18

    Rihanna is trying to move on. People make mistakes all the time and she is being the bigger person and moving on from the horrors of her past. You can't blame the girl for wanting to move past what happened. To be more than that girl that was beat by Chris Brown is her priority. She is not trying to represent women everywhere, she is representing Rihanna. Leave her alone.

  19. 19

    I'm pretty that Rihanna told Diane Sawyer during her interview that she did not seek therapy.

    This is VERY SAD. She's a sick girl with no self-esteem/self-respect.

    SHAME on you Perez for celebrating any of this. The girl is sick and still needs help.

  20. Eizza says – reply to this


    So wrong on so many levels. No respect for RiRi al all! Zero. Im disapointed that more people are not saying that this is NOT okay. Not just the colaberation, but C Brown should be stripped of the privilege of being a star.

    Honestly, RiRi should also lose that privilege, because shes just stupid.

  21. Eizza says – reply to this


    Yea I gotta say that Perez must be getting some $$ to help lessen the shock and help desensitize the public to this.

    SHAME ON YOU FOR PEREZ for siding with the "its actually not too bad" mentality.

  22. 22

    These two dummies deserve each other. And please, bitch. Your music is anything but innocent. What a hypocrite.

  23. 23

    Brava! Brava! Her "level-headed" words spoken in a way that only a battered woman with low self-esteem could speak them. Brava, Rihanna! Keep digging yourself into that hole. Perez might respect you but, Perez respects anyone who will pay him to do so.

  24. 24

    This comment of hers makes her sound like a stupid twat and not level-headed at all. Anyone, and clearly Perez falls into this category, who falls for this stunt is a stupid sheep. It's obvious she's defending her dumb decision so that people buy the music. Whores are only ever motivated by money.

  25. 25

    omg i just read the most stupid comment ever, someone said if rihanna gets back together with chris, he will kill her…-___- i would agree with you if he always used to beat rihanna but he only beat her once, he did it very brutally but anywayz…he wont 'kill' rihanna coz he had 5 girlfriends after her and nothin happened to them…so shut da fuck up lol

  26. 26

    its okay when its her but if this was him saying this you would completely down him and critisize him. clearly she has moved on and so should everyone else. does anyone talk about mel gibson anymore? no? exactly.

  27. 27

    It's a little annoying that people think that they have the right to pass judgement on this at all. When will people get that it happened between the two of them and no one else. If she has forgiven Chris then who is anyone else to continue to hold onto it. Its called a second chance and moving on from the past. This was a great move for both of them. Im certainly not a fan of Rihanna on a personal level but I cant sit here and say that some of her music isnt good. Chris made Birthday Cake even better and you cant deny his talent and thats the only thing people should be focused on.

  28. 28

    Re: ohstopit – and what explanation will you give when he beats the crap out of her again, or (heaven forbid) he kills her??? do some research on abused woman returning to their abusers — it DOES. NOT. END. WELL. get your head out of the clouds, drop the "everyone love everyone and flowers and kittens" GARBAGE and wake up and realize this is the real world. She's fucking stupid, and he's an animal. end of story.

  29. 29

    Rihanna and Chris Brown had a FIGHT, and he was just as roughed up as she was, hence why he does not have a mugshot. Rihanna has forgiven him, and Chris has forgiven her for lying and using his name for her album sales. She claimed to be a DV victim for SALES and it shows. Rihanna knows very well that she never walked around in fear of Chris or had ever been beaten by him previously to claim to be a DV victim. Now she needs her urban audience back, and who best to use than the guy on top of the R&B game now–Chris Brown. I'm glad they are moving forward, and she's finally stepping up to speak up for Chris Brown, although she is LATE in doing so because he is successful again on his OWN accord!

  30. 30

    that was a lame explanation and a sad excuse. pathetic. i hope young girls aren't seriously looking up to this idiot

  31. 31

    Seriously everyone needs to get over this, if she forgave him then what are all of you doing still judging him. This happens everyday in the world why is everyone still making a big deal about it. Its clear that these two are trying to get over that period in their life and for everyone to keep constantly giving them shit for that is dumb. They're human something happened and they dealt with it. If the person that got abused can deal with it and move on why the hell are millions still giving chris brown shit. It didnt happen to you so leave it alone.

  32. @v@ says – reply to this


    If a person says things repeatedly to themselves, do they actually start to believe it? Do they then actually believe that other people will believe it? Lol.

  33. 33

    despite what all said i respect you as a woman!true woman forgive true woman end war!at first i did not get you but i understand you,thank you to show ediots that forgiveness is for everyone. say whatever, the fact remain that we should heal the world together!mj says so we should heal the world together!

  34. 34

    It's driving people nuts that Rihanna does not hate Chris like they do! Rihanna could hold a fucking press conference saying, " Get the fuck over it!" and motherfuckers are still going claim they know Rihanna better than Rihanna. Chris could cure HIV/AIDS and people would claim he did for himself. All of these Psychics and not one can give me the winnings lotto for tomorrow night!

    Re: TSizz2

    The only thing he is going to kill is a dance floor.

  36. 36

    Re: TSizz2 – I'm sorry, when did I ever say "everyone should love each other?" It's just common sense to move on from the past. He made one big mistake and sought out help for it. It's people like you that make it hard for people to start over. People change and ignorant comments that you make just show that ur clearly not on that mature level to let things go. Theres nothing more he can do than apologize and get help which he did. He has had girlfriends since Rihanna and I dont see reports of him beating them so maybe you should do your research. GET OVER IT. She moved on from it and so should the rest of the world.

  37. 37

    Re: misty89 – I completely agree. It's pretty sad that the rest of the world cant see this!

  38. 38

    Wow! Is she really that stupid?! The only reason he is "hot" right now is because he's getting sympathy from all the morons after he beat the shyt out of HER. Sorry, but she's dumb for doing this IMO. Doesn't J have a say in this bc she's on his label and he doesn't back Chris? I guess she can make her own action. I'm really starting to not feel bad for her anymore. As to the rumors of them getting back together, if they do and it happens again.. she did it to herself.

  39. 39

    Re: fuhhgetdahhatuurs – You might have a point, but on the other hand, maybe Chris wasn't as deeply involved with his next set of girlfriends to make him as emotionally crazy like he was with Rihanna. They need to separate completely and like others say, BOTH get help.

  40. 40

    I thnk what shz doing is quite mature,people shud quit their nasty opinions.

  41. 41

    To add to my first post, CB is also "on top" right now bc of the other artists who collaborated with him, not by any of the songs that he sings alone. In fact, I don't think I've heard any recently (ex: Pitbull who everyones LOVES right now, me included).

  42. 42

    Re: hoochpit – You're no better than Chris Brown, the way you talk about women, you probably think about fucking school girls, because you are a completely repulsive vile pig who needs to die off

  43. 43

    I'm so disappointed with the reactions people have regarding this topic. It's no wonder there are so many unreported cases of abuse. I thought we were taking huge steps forward to prevent, educate and help the public deal with bullying and battery of woman and men. As a public figure it is Rihanna's responsibility not to destroy all the work that people who belong to these organizations have done over the years.

    Rihanna's quote "It's music, and it's innocent" makes me think that she chose the wrong profession. Music has always been a way to communicate and express your thoughts and feeling. Does she even understand the words she sings?

    Even if both parties received the help needed to recover from their past relationship/s the emotional scars will always be there. The worst thing for either one of them would be to enter each other's life again. Based on the aggressive behavior Chris Brown has shown in public over the last few years shows he has a long way to go. I only hope his current girlfriend is safe.

    I don't believe Rihanna has an objective nor do I think she is at all level-head about it all. Give you head a shake. Why would you even consider suggesting to the public that we have to respect her when she has disrespected so many people.
