Rihanna on Chris Brown: It’s different now!

Rihanna / Rolling Stone

You know, we’ve gone pretty hard on Rihanna over the fact that she started dating Chris Brown again, mostly because he physically abused her and seriously, he physically abused her. When you’re in the public eye and you end up going back to the guy who beat you and left you for dead, you’re kinda implicitly stating that it’s okay to be physically abusive as long as you can get away with it. Anyway, here’s Rihanna talking about how she’s dating Chris again because he’s changed, which sounds completely reasonable. Via HuffPo:

In a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Rihanna continues to neither deny nor confirm a romantic relationship with her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, but does talk about why she decided to give him a second chance.

“I decided it was more important for me to be happy. 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.”

She adds that she feels safe in her relationship with Brown, and how its evolved:

“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 … 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 knowing that he’s disgusting by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”

Really? Things are different now? He doesn’t have the luxury of messing up? Because I’m pretty sure he just got into a fight with Frank Ocean over a parking space. The only way that’s different is that now he’s punching people outside of his car instead of inside his car. You’re right, he has changed!
