In Julys addition of Esquire , 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.”
Then the interview turned to talking about a possible romance and she said:
“[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.”
You go girl feel free lol.
