We adore you Ri, but when you collaborate with an ex-lover who smashed your face in, on songs of an explicit and sexual nature, OBVIOUSLY people are going to wonder…
In Esquire UK’s July issue, Rihanna addresses the heated media backlash over her work with abusive ex Chris Brown on overtly sexual hit Birthday Cake.
"It never occurred to me how this was going to be a problem. I thought people were gonna be surprised that we finally did a record together, but I didn't see how people could think it was a bad thing, you know? In my mind, it was just music . . . I could never see anything wrong with making music."
But when the interviewer prys for information on a possible rekindling of the tumultuos romance, Princess Ri gets VERY defensive:
"[I worked with Brown] in a completely professional environment… I mean, if I went back to him [as a girlfriend], then that's a whole different discussion. If I ever do, then that's something that y'all have to talk to me about when — if — that ever happens. Until then, look at it for what it is."
Eeee, why so snappish, RI?! Did the question hold some truths you’re not quite ready to admit??
Feel free to not give a f*ck, but you've got impressionable fans who do… so try to keep them somewhere in the back of your pretty head when livin' your life…your life….your life.
