Barbadian singer Rihanna appears on the cover of the latest issue of “Rolling Stone” magazine where she goes into detail about her relationship with former batterer Chris Brown. The interview was trickling out in pieces, but we’ve got a good excerpt here for your viewing displeasure. Seriously — why would she get back together with Chris? Does she really think he has changed? Read on!

When speaking on the topic of why she got back with him, she revealed, “I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn’t bury the way I felt. 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.”

With regard to how their relationship has changed, she said, “When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world. 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 sh*t. W e value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”

On the topic of whether or not Chris will go back to the abusive way he used to be, she said, “Listen, I’ll tell you right now: I don’t have to take it. If he gives me that again, here’s what I give him: nothing. I just walk away. He doesn’t have the luxury of f*cking 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.”

When asked what she loves about Chris, she said, “For a long time he was really angry, and he felt like he couldn’t get away from it, no matter what he did. But there’s so many reasons why I ever reconsidered having him in my life. He’s not the monster everybody thinks. He’s a good person. He has a fantastic heart. He’s giving and loving. And he’s fun to be around. That’s what I love about him – he always makes me laugh. All I want to do is laugh, really – and I do that with him.”

When asked if she is trying to rehabilitate Chris, she said, “Wait. You think I’m here to rehabilitate Chris? No, no, no. That is not my purpose. Trust me. I could have done that from the jump if I thought that was my job. My job was to take care of myself – and I did. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think Chris was ready. And trust me – it makes me feel great to know that people care. I guess it’s just something that will show with time. There’s nothing I could say that would convince you right now. But we’re in a great place. And I can’t ever see us going back.”

Lastly, when asked if love is her sign of weakness, she added, “I could never identify with that word, ‘weak.’ I couldn’t have come out of this if I was weak. No way.”
