Affection without any limitations; true altruism and complete love — which is basically how Rihanna epitomizes her relationship with Brown. The pop star opened up about her on again off again romance with the hip hop star and says:
“I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” the pop star said in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.
“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 pop star said in reference to the 2009 assault on her by Brown.
“When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world,” Rihanna adds. “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,” she continued.

And on the subject of Brown ever striking her again, Rihanna says:
“He doesn’t have the luxury of fucking up again. 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. He made a mistake, and he’s paid his dues, he’s paid so much. And I know that’s not a place he would ever want to go back to. And sometimes people need support and encouragement, instead of ridicule and criticism and bashing,” the ‘Unapologetic’ singer adds.
Kind of reminds of the famous quote by John F. Kennedy,”forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.”
The full interview was released today, January 31st and is now available on news stands as well as RollingStone.com.
