Rihanna covers the January issue of British GQ and of course the inevitable Chris Brown question comes up:
Sometimes when you’re on the inside of a relationship like that, you can’t see it clearly for what it is. I left – it was the best feeling. It was so freeing…I witnessed it happening to my mum and I said I would never let that happen to me – and then it was happening. Now, when I look back, it bugs me out that I couldn’t see it for what it was
Apparently Rihanna still talking about the Chris Brown situation upset one of her fans who called her out on it on Twitter:
greenangeleyez1: I luv u bt it’s time u stopped talking about the situation with chris in interviews. How r people gonna move on?
Rihanna quickly responds, basicaly agreeing with her fan:
AGREED! People won’t stop askin abt it! Its f*ckin annoying! Nobody wants to relive that, but some ppl can’t respect that!
“I get it, they wanna raise awareness to young girls,” “But it ends up just makin me look bitter, pitiful, spiteful and angry!”
My personally feeling on the situation is that Rihanna is free to talk about it as long as she wants to talk about it. I think it is a little disingenuous on her part to blame the media for her answering the questions. She is free to answer “no comment” or to have her publicist let interviewers know that Chris Brown questions are off limits, but I don’t think she is there yet. And that’s okay.
When she’s ready to not talk about Brown anymore she will. And she is the only who gets to determine when that will be. If you’re a fan, and you don’t want to hear about it anymore – don’t read her interviews. Simple. But no one has the right to tell her when she should be “over” the whole thing or when she should be ready to “move on.”
