Rihanna on Chris Brown Backlash: I Do What I Want!

by at . Comments

Rihanna, in the new issue of Elle, has a message for all haters giving her a hard time about collaborating with Chris Brown again: She could give a flying ...

Yeah. Despite a shocking attack suffered at the hands of her then-boyfriend, Rihanna recorded new music - two remixes - with Brown earlier this year.

The backlash came hard and fast. But she does not care.

“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it," she said of the negative reaction to working with Chris.

"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.”

Anyone at all surprised? Didn't think so.

Regarding the breakup with Chris and the media scrutiny that followed his arrest three years ago, Rihanna says it was terrible ... and yet empowering.

"They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. 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.”

"It gave me guns."

Rihanna is where she is because she has worked hard. Not one of u haters has contributed to her success. It's great that she don't give a fuck, she's not perfect like every one of us. This girl is young, gorgeous, talented, successful and single therefore she can date whoever the hell she wants. She has gone through crazy shit but I'm sure none of u hateful people were there to offer a shoulder to cry on. Only because she's a celebrity doesn't mean she has to take responsibility for women that have gone through the same shit. Her personal business was put on blast, she dealt with the shit talking, criticism, & now she's moved on to better things. Don't ever judge someone by going off of what u hear. Instead of being so concerned & judgemental about her personal life, everyone should fuck off & get a life =P


itz gud 4 them 2 get back 2gether bt wat rihanna did 2 chris brown waz bad


I will do what I want, when I want, get screwed by who I want, get punched by who I want, I'm a little pig & I have no morals. I'm a tramp in heat - how ya like me now?


Obviously Rhiana doesn't mind setting a bad example and let's be honest , the same way Justin Bieber doesn't mind bringing little girls to Chris Brown's feet.


PS Meant "dissent".


@SweetT JuliaC's attempt to prove what you say has come up short. My opinion is just as valid as hers. Getting the feeling that she can't handle any descent...so she calls out her contrived trolls. I get it. Same 'ole, same ole. Nothing changes here.


I'm glad Rihanna is talking out on yall HATERS !!! its her life and she CAN do whatever she wants,, life is a lesson and we learn from it everyday I wish nothing but the best for her n Chris Brown all the haters get off her D!@K!!!


No LivvyT, JuliaC is trying to prove that people are pathetic over this topic just like you lecturing JuliaC. Get a life.

Rihanna Quotes

I get asked about it all the time and I’m like, You’re asking, but you know the answer. I don’t even like to address it anymore.

Rihanna [on rumors that she dated Jay-Z]

Sometimes you just need your privacy. But it comes with the territory. There's no privacy when you are out in the public.
