Four years after rapper Chris Brown brutally attacked her after Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party in L.A., leaving her bruised, battered and bloody, Rihanna with her bad boy lover and defended their love in a new interview with “Rolling Stone” magazine.
“Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake,” she said. “I decided it was more important for me to be happy.”
And apparently Chris Brown makes her happy, so she won’t listen to any negative talk about him. It sounds like a decision she has agonized over, because she told the magazine,
“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.”
She admits this is no classic love story with Brown, who recently compared himself to the crucified Jesus.
“When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world.”
Sounding like every other abused woman in history, she is adamant she won’t get bashed again because “we don’t have those types of arguments anymore.” She says they talk it out and value each other more now. She believes he won’t commit domestic violence again.
“He doesn’t have the luxury of fu**ing up again,” she says. “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.”
But is Chris Brown’s violent past really over? Just days before the “Rolling Stones” interview went to press he was involved in a parking lot altercation with Frank Ocean, who plans to press assault charges against the fellow musician. If you were Rihanna (I know many of you have imagine you are!) – would you take Chris Brown back?
