Rihanna graces the cover of Vogue’s November issue, and opens up about the hottest topic in entertainment right now: her relationship with her ex, Chris Brown. The fact the former couple had a very public breakup stemming from a very horrible incident is cause enough for the world to be so interested in their affairs, but the fact that Chris had a girlfriend he allegedly kicked to the curb for this “reunion” makes it all the more juicier. Talking to the fashion mag, Rihanna admits she hasn’t had a proper date in over 2 years, which one would assume was MLB star Matt Kemp. She helps to paint a picture of just how lonely she’s been as of late, giving some insight as to why this Chris Brown thing is happening so fast. She has quite an interesting response when asked about the nature of their reunion, and its “start” with the Birthday Cake remix. See what she said below.
“To the world, I feel like there’s no closure. There’s some obsession that’s continued even throughout when we weren’t friends or couldn’t be friends at all. Hated each other. The world hasn’t let go. They haven’t seen any progress in our friendship, because they don’t see anything, really, besides the song. But they’re not on the inside. They can’t see what I see, unless they’re sitting in my point of view. I guess I’ll learn to accept that.”
On their collab:
“I didn’t think it could be anything detrimental to my career. I was on a tour bus ride between two cities, listening to my album, thinking, Oooh, maybe I should make this into a duet. And I started coming up with a bunch of people, and his name crossed my mind. I thought, We haven’t made a song in so long together . . . it could be a little shocking.”
