Rihanna will appear on the latest cover of 'Rolling Stone' for an issue in which she discusses her relationship with Chris Brown. The magazine has yet to release the full interview, but did reveal a few snippets.
"I decided it was more important for me to be happy," she tells contributing editor Josh Eells in the new issue of Rolling Stone, out Friday, January 31st. "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."
The singer goes on to explain that their relationship is completely different now.
"When you add up the pieces from the outside, it's not the cutest puzzle in the world," Rihanna says. "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 s*it. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don't want to lose that."
Rihanna says that if Brown were ever again to display violent tendencies, she'll be out the door. "He doesn't have the luxury of fu*king up again," she says. "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."
It's not known if Brown's recent altercation with Frank Ocean will change her views in any way.
