Rihanna Says She's 'Afraid' to Love Again & We Can Relate

Rihanna sounds like she's still not over Chris Brown. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, she eludes to a great love that went horribly wrong. Hmmm? Who could that be? Says RiRi:

When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different.

We may not agree with the way Rihanna has handled things with Chris since their break-up -- like collaborating with him on two duets, and supposedly continuing to hook up with him. But most of us can relate to being in love and thinking nothing could ever burst our romantic bubble and then pop! Big-time heartbreak.


In fact, Rihanna says she is so traumatized by her romantic past that she now has a difficult time getting close to men -- at least emotionally. Despite her rumored fling with Drake, and being the apparent cause of the nightclub melee he got into with Chris Brown, RiRi swears she lives like a hermit:

I have been conservative in my love life ... it’s pretty much nonexistent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just -- I don’t let people in.

Rihanna admits that it was her break-up with his unnamed love (coughChriscough) that has her noncommittal in love these days:

I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.

It can be really difficult to get back into the game of love after losing the last round -- and losing it in such a horrific and public way -- but I'm not sure Rihanna is helping herself recover with the continued back and forth drama with Chris. Hopefully she is NOT hooking up with him. And last we knew she had unfollowed him on Twitter. The key to getting over a bad relationship -- defriend and defollow!

Now Rihanna just needs to find a guy who isn't into drama -- and doesn't hit women.

Are you afraid of love after a break-up?
