Rihanna Says Chris Brown Is a ‘Mistake’ She’s Willing to Make


rihannaRihanna has finally opened up about her rekindled romance with Chris Brown. They have been spotted out and about together for months, but still many fans hoped they were not really an item again. Well, in the new issue of Rolling Stone, Riri sets the record straight about what is going on between her and the man who once beat her.

"I decided it was more important for me to be happy," she told the magazine. "I was going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake."

“If” it's a mistake? Who is she kidding? Dating Chris Brown clearly is a mistake. And I don't just say that because he hit her. I am a firm believer that with the proper counseling, an abuser can get the help he needs to stop that behavior. But that takes a commitment and maturity that he doesn't seem to have yet. He has so many unresolved anger issues, as evidenced by his behavior since being sentenced in the assault case. The most recent incident is not even a week old. (He reportedly got in a fight with Frank Ocean over a parking space). I know it’s hard to forget your first real love, but she needs to wake up. This guy may not have changed.

Still, Rihanna feels like Chris is The One for her. "You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it's different now," she insisted. "We don't have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about shit. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don't want to lose that."

And she's not the least bit worried about what this will do to her image. "After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash," she added. "I can handle it." Oh, there will definitely be backlash. It is hard for people to accept that a seemingly strong, savvy, and successful woman would return to a man who battered her. But I suppose she is not unlike other domestic violence victims. Many of them do go back to their abusers. It just sets a poor example for all of her young, impressionable fans. But bottom line is it's not the singer's job to teach them to stay away from guys that have treated them badly. Hopefully they already know better.

Do you think Rihanna is making a mistake?

Look, alot of the time in her poses she covers one of her eyes... ILLMINATI Princess. Has nothing to do with this article but Ive been noticing more and more ILLUMINATI SYMBOLS with all the FAMOUS celebrities. CRAZY

What a dumb bitch. When he beats her again, I'm not going to feel sorry for her.

She's probably always covering one eye to hide the black eye Chris gave her.... Just saying.....

She is absolutely 100% right. She is a grown woman and if this is a mistake then it is hers to make. It doesn't affect any of us in any way.

Agreed CPN. I don't understand that since she is a celebrity that she HAS to live the life that society wants her to live. It's her own life, she can be with and do what she wants. To hell with the fact that because she is a "role model" , she should be miserable and care what others think. If she wants to be with Chris Brown, abuse or no abuse in the future, then that is her right and she sounds ready to accept the consequences of those actions from her fan base. You can only help people who want to be helped, you can't force them do the right thing.

Sure she can do as she pleases, but, that doesn't mean that we all have to approve. She can be with Chris, I can think she a flucking idiot for it. Nope, it doesn't affect me, but like it or not, young people will see her actions and then stay in abusive relationships themselves. It's incredibly naive for any parent to think they are the only role model in their kids lives.

I think it's her decision to make. I wish her the best of luck
