Rihanna Tells RollingStone, “I Wanted Chris To Know What It Was Like To LOSE Me.. And We Know Exactly What We Have Now”

We recently reported that 24 year-old Rihanna is the new cover girl for Rolling Stone Magazine’s February/March 2013 cover and spread. 

And now the magazine has released the full interview from her spread, where she talks about teaching (boyfriend) Chris Brown a lesson, “I wanted Chris to know what it was like to lose me,” and it’s different now because they know exactly what they have.”

The singer then chatted about fans and media criticizing their sudden reunion and blacking out the negativity because– it is what it is– “they are together.”

Here’s the highlights:

On being mad at Chris Brown for a really long time: 

“I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that. So when that (stuff) came back it hit me like a ton of bricks. Like, God, you’ve got to be kidding right now. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn’t bury the way I felt.”

On knowing she would be opening herself up to criticism for reuniting with Chris Brown:

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

On even her best friend not being allowed to talk to her about Chris Brown:

“I just felt like, why bother? Nobody else is going through it. Nobody would understand.”

On people being upset about her reunion with Chris Brown: 

“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 (stuff). We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”

On the opinion that Chris Brown still hasn’t changed, based on his behavior: 

“I know it comes off like that. And it doesn’t help. 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.”

On believing that Chris has changed and supporting him:

“Of course everybody has their opinion about him, because of what he’s done. That will always be there. But he made a mistake, and he’s paid his dues. He’s paid so much. And I know that’s not a place he would ever want to go back to. And sometimes people need support and encouragement, instead of ridicule and criticism and bashing.”

“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.”

On people being worried about her with Chris Brown: 

“I know. 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.”

On how much she will put up with from Chris Brown going forward:

“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 that luxury of (expletive) up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”

Rihanna also admitted to the magazine that she wants kids someday, but truly wish she could order them. Check out the cover and more pics here

    I'm happy she's opening up… Her being honest is something rare. I hope and pray they last and just be happy, shut out the negativity and just focus on getting better.
