Rihanna on Chris Brown: I'm going to do what I want

Say what you will about Rihanna's collaboration and seeming reconciliation with her ex Chris Brown, who pleaded guilty to one count of assault in connection to an argument he had with the Barbadian pop star in 2009, but the singer is hearing none of it.

She tells Elle magazine in its May issue of the backlash to her decision to work with Brown that she understands people have their opinions, but she's not going to let them sway her.

"The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it," Rihanna says 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.”

Living through the fallout of her relationship with Brown, she says, has given her a new sense of freedom.

“It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening," she says. "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.”

As for what the future holds, Rihanna's still optimistic about becoming a mom...but she's got to find the right man first, she tells Elle. And don't think that'll come easier because she's a well-coiffed superstar:

"It’s hard for everybody!" she says. "I don’t think it has anything to do with being famous. There’s just a major drought out there. […] But I just need to find the person who balances me out, because then things like my schedule won’t matter. I’ve done it before, so I know I can do it again.”

    Rihanna wants to be with someone who is real and responsible, she doesn't wanna marry any man because who knows what will go on in her life!! I want Rihanna to find the right man and I hope everyone feels the same way!! We all know Chris Brown wants her back because he wants to have her babies... well... its a guess!! She picks the right decisions for herself!!!

    Good for her!! she's showing her independence. Last time i checked, Chris is randomly tested for illegal drugs(no failures so far), 3yrs into a 5yr probation. Yet if Rihanna opted to work with Roman Polanski, a man who at over 40yrs old drugged & raped a 13yr old, then fled to France from the USA law..no one will object.
    I also do not believe every guy who hits(sadly) a girl once continually does that..see Mickey R'ourke who beat Carrie Otis, Sean Penn who beat Madonna..Chris Brown hasn't repeated that sad behaviour with subsequent gfs after Riri...he faced the courts..better than Manny Ramirez who's paid for his wife to duck summons after slapping her. Chris is neither a paedophile nor a serial killer..some of the responses to him have been extremely hypocritical....giving that domestic abuse ain't crimes mainly committed by aliens from outer space.

    Does she really not realize that she's a role model now? She's chosen to live her life in the spotlight, and it's NOT all about her, she took on the responsibility of being a role model

    He didn't just slap her once, he BEAT her the f*** up....it wasn't minimal damage, does she need to see the pictures again. It is pathetic....

    She is just living her life, its funny that she mentioned people who waste their time on these places ranting on about something they truly know nothing about. Even though she keeps saying she's single and that her relationship with CB is strictly professional, people just really dont want to believe that because the negative is so much more appealing. Live your life Rihanna and you've inspired me to live my most honest life, now I find that I'm a more beautiful person inside and out. Thank you.

Rihanna was the one she know who started the fight she got roughed up on. The white media can't get it into their minds about that and she throwing that mobile phone in the car at Chris.

He on the other hand, I'm sure loves the fact that he can beat up a pop princess and get away with it. Yes get away with it-stupid ignorant people still buy his records and go see his shows.

    I saw this coming...I've been through it myself, and kept going back because it was 'normal' to be beaten/whipped as a kid. I kept going back until I got the therapy and self-esteem I needed to NOT go back. It is very sad, but I hope she doesn't have to get the lesson again. I was lucky I wasn't accidentally killed by him in his little fit of rage and all those I'm-sorry-lies. This isn't about black or white, people. It is about sickness.

    I had a guy who beat on me once. Once was more than enough. I decided from then on out if a guy beat on me or cheated on me...he was through! No ifs &s or buts about it! Women & men need to stand up for themselves, cause if you don't NO ONE will.
    I know that many go back to their abusers, because they think they've changed or that they can't live without someone in their lives. You're wrong. If someone raised a hand to you once, they'll do it again. And you can live without someone, especially if that someone is the one who harms and not protects you.
    Many point to her father's influence. Yes, parents have an influence. But there comes a time when you have to stand on your own 2 feet, realizing your parents were/are human just like you. They don't know all the answers, they don't lead perfect lives & aren't always the best role models. All you can hope is to be better than the generation before.
    Just hope we don't hear of another beating or worse.

    Ri isn't stupid, she's caught in denial. She honestly believes he's changed. Or she thinks she can change/save/fix him. It's common, after 11 years in an abusive relationship I finally gave up. It's not easy to walk away from someone you love especially if they need help. Chris went through a program, the chance of recidivism after these programs is reduced by as much as 60%. However, if someone pointed a gun at me and said only forty percent of the chambers had bullets I still wouldn't want them to pull the trigger. I hope she sorts it out. In the meantime she doesn't deserve sympathy OR hate. She deserves to live her life and make mistakes just like everyone else. She really should stop making public statements about it though. It's difficult to believe she doesn't care what people think when she gives interviews and puts it in the news every week.

    Fine to do whatever you want when it's only you involved but please don't reproduce. Your example would perpetuate toxic relationships to any children you have.

    People are so quick to judge....like you didnt do things in your younger years that would not dare to do know! That situation happened to her and unfortunately everyone found out because she was famous. I'm sure she is dealing with the best she can but if she wants to forgive, its HER forgiveness that matters. You don't think she is a role model, fine. Want you kids to stop listening to her music, fine but at the end of the day we all have made decisions that other people are happy with. You have to put your self in a good place and if that means, forgiving and moving on...then KUDOS to her.

    It disgusts me that some people feel Rihanna "gets what she deserves" if she continues seeing Chris Brown. Noone deserves to be beaten. That's like saying a woman who dresses provocatively deserves to get raped. She might make bad choices, but we shouldn't wish ill will on her. My hope for her, and other people in similar situations, is that they learn to make healthier choices for themselves without suffering severe consequences.

    It is apparent that Rhianna has not resolved her feelings for Chris Brown. Abused women tend to go back to their abusers. She is still very immature in her choices for abusive men and wants only what she wants. Hopefully, this encounter will have a positive result. Otherwise, the public will not be as sympathetic should she end up abused once again. She needs help and does not want to accept it at this time.

    oh who cares, now one can predict relationships, and domestic fights aren't indicative of an end of a relationship. i've been with my girl now for 8 years and into the 2nd to 4th years we got into serious domestic issues and physical fights and we racked up quite a record with the courts and cops, they all knew us by name, it's almost always drug/alcohol related as was the case here, nevertheless we never separated for more than several months here and there during those times. for years now since without anything similar happening, i think we just burnt ourselves out from the protective orders, arrests and drama as we were in our early-mid 20's, now 30's, now most things just slide by, so perhaps we matured some.

    She is a great talent who has a huge, young fan base. When people question her about going back to Brown after he beat her, they are worried about what that says as a role model to her young fan base.

      The problem with this whole situation surrounding Rhianna is the parents of her young fan base. YOU are and should be your children's role model. Stop putting that responsibility off on a celeb with NO children of her own. Matter of fact, she is still young herself and need to mature more before she start having children that she will really have to be a role model too.

      If her young fan base start believing that it's alright to continue an intimate relationship with someone that abuse them, then it's not Rhianna's fault; but the fault of the parents of these young fans. It's their job to set the example or explain to their children why continuing that type of relationship with their abusers is wrong and could end up fatal. However, they need to explain that FORGIVING their abusers and being able to say hello or working in the same business or at the same company doesn't mean that you are continuing an intimate relationship with that person and that you should be ridicule for doing the one thing that can help you heal and that's FORGIVING those that trespass against you.

    Brown is finally seeing how people believe what their told and Rihanna is getting what she gave out. Two people know the truth of that night and it's not the story Rihanna gave and Brown wasn't totally innocent. Men are told when you and your date yell and hands start to fly the man should walk away. The story to the press was to protect Rihanna image because of her invovment by Chris knew telling what really happen wouldn't help him either. But going to Oprah was all for promotion and hopes for Rihanna to be the true victim and record sales. Brown has moved on and repairing his life and learning from his mistake. Rihanna not doing well and goes back to Brown for two reasons, Her career and she loves the guy. Brown would be wise to let that insane girl alone on a personal level. But for many Rihanna is a Saint but the truth is she loved a man so much she started a fight and now wants him back.

      For the record, this isn't a white/black thing. This is a domestic abuse issue. Much as we might like to pretend, people don't just "snap" and hit people they love. There are patterns, and with the temper tantrums he's thrown in the past, it seems much more plausible he'll do it again.
      Two years and he hasn't sent his current girlfriend to the hospital, and we're supposed to applaud that? SMH.

If he knew what true love was back then, he would have NEVER done what he did to her. and it is really sad and disturbing that after everything that happened, Rihanna is now showing him respect and not everybody else who is and has been on her side.

      She is the definition of a very stupid, insecure woman who needs psychiatric help.

      Oh, honey...that's not love. If this is happening to you, walk away. He'll kill you eventually. Or he'll emotionally and physically beat you down so badly that you'll be nothing more than a shell of human existance.

    She has knowone to complain to when she ends up in the hospital again or even worse. What ever happens, she is responsible for letting it happen. It is her life, and she can do what she wants. Why should we care. We don't have to live it. We should all be able to do what we want, as long as we dont hurt someone in the process. I hope they both learn from this and grow and move on.

      WTH is that supposed to mean Sheliah? I NEED divine intervention because I said, and I restate, that to re-establish a friendly relationship with someone who beat the crap out of you is PATHETIC? It's one thing to spiritually forgive someone, it's a very SAD thing to pretend it never happened. And I REALLY hope you weren't comparing the Rhianna/Brown thing to American history? Ridiculous.

      Wow, Sheliah, I just read this quote at the Great Beginnings for Black Babies website:
      "Black females experienced intimate partner violence at a rate 35% higher than that of white females, and about 22 times the rate of women of other races."
      So yeah, if black women were to, as you said, "utilize my approach," and kick a loser to the curb the FIRST time he hits you, that wouldn't be the case.
      So take your "divine forgiveness" and cram it.

    Some people (ie her detractors) never learn that you can in fact forgive and be on friendly, casual terms with someone that has hurt you. That doesn't equal starting up a relationship or putting yourself in a position without limits. Were she to do that, and by all accounts that isn't the case, it would be become another issue entirely.

      You're right. She's sureyly insecure and not very smart. I do think she is talented and is wasting her talent.

      Those of you who thinks she's an idiot, remember there are several forms of abuse, whether physical, mental, or emotional etc. Most of us who have been in relationships have experienced one of these at some point & time in a relationship. Did you leave when your spouse financially abused the household funds which brought about a second mortgage, or foreclosure? Did you leave your mate when he/she kept sleeping around unprotected bringing about emotional turmoil, disgust, disease and or offspring? What about abuse by emotional neglect? How about not wanting to leave becuase you have kids in tow or don't want to pay child support because your lifestyle might change? People stay for their own reasons and they also go back for their own reasons. Look at the dysfunctions in your own relationships before you judge others. I think you'll find we were all idiots at some point & time in our lives and still no one could change our wind. We did as we wanted whether things changed for the better or worse. Whose to say it isn't about business, the idea is to keep'em buzzing about you . . . as we are;-)
