The latest magazine to land Rihanna on its cover is Elle UK. Of course the Bajan Pop singer was asked about her relationship with Chris Brown and she tells the mag that she is no victim and that she hopes to have a child in about five years.
As countless photos reveal, and according to Breezy himself, the controversial couple is back together. This is despite Brown infamously putting hands on her back in 2009.
The New York Daily News reports:
“You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he is the one I have that kind of relationship with,” she said of Brown.
“What we want [is] a great friendship that’s unbreakable,” the star noted.
“Now that we’re adults we can do this right. We got a fresh start and I’m thankful for that.”
Being caught up in another controversy isn’t on Rihanna’s long-term agenda. In the not-so-distant future, the singer even hopes to start a family. When asked where she sees herself in five years, Rihanna said she imagines a more maternal role.
“I will probably have a kid,” Rihanna said. “And I’ll have to set some things up so I don’t have to tour for the rest of my life, even though I love touring.”
Rih Rih also spoke on the tattoo of a gun that she sports on her rib cage, which she says was a form of empowerment.
“Everybody wanted to know what was happening in my life. Is she a drug addict? No. Is she an alcoholic? No. Is she a victim? No,” the songstress said. “That’s when I got the gun. It was a symbol of strength. I’ll never be a victim.”
Although we appreciate the “Stay” singer’s confidence, the police report photos of her swollen and battered face is evidence that at least in the case of the assault, she was most definitely a victim.
