In an interview with Elle, Rihanna opens up about the Chris Brown incident. You know, the one where he punched her in the face a hundred times. Rihanna defends reconciling with Brown saying she’s gonna do what she’s gonna do. That’s the spirit! You show those fans who are sort of concerned for you.
“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it,” she said in the interview. “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.”
Rihanna adds that the Chris Brown thing made her stronger. And not just because of the new found tensile strength in her face after those micro-fractures healed. “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.”
Well good for her. Looks like she’s over it. No one should let a solid beating get in the way of a great friendship.
