Rihanna opens up to Vanity Fair about Chris Brown

08 October 2015, 10:04

Los Angeles - Rihanna will care for Chris Brown "until the day I die".

In an intimate interview with Vanity Fair magazine, the Where Have You Been hitmaker insists she will never stop thinking about her ex-boyfriend despite admitting the pair aren't "friends" anymore.

She said: "I will care about him until the day I die. We're not friends, but it's not like we're enemies."

The 27-year-old beauty admits she thought she could change the Loyal hitmaker following the abuse, which Chris subsequently served community service for.

She explained: "I was that girl. That girl who felt that as much pain as this relationship is, maybe some people are built stronger than others. Maybe I'm one of those people built to handle shit like this."

And Rihanna admits she never "understands" how victims can keep being "punished over and over" by being constantly reminded about the domestic abuse they suffered.

She told Vanity Fair magazine: "I just never understood that, like how the victim gets punished over and over.

"It's in the past, and I don't want to say 'Get over it,' because it's a very serious thing that is still relevant; it's still real. A lot of women, a lot of young girls, are still going through it. A lot of young boys too.

"It's not a subject to sweep under the rug, so I can't just dismiss it like it wasn't anything. But, for me, and anyone who's been a victim of domestic abuse, nobody wants to even remember it."

Meanwhile the Stay hitmaker  admitted her lack of action in the bedroom leaves her feeling "horny" but, regardless, she's not the type to have "hollow" sex with a string of men.

She told the magazine: "I haven't been having sex or even really seeing anybody. I don't want to wake up the next day feeling guilty.

"I mean I get horny, I'm human, I'm a woman, I want to have sex. But what am I going to do - just find the first random cute dude that I think is going to be a great ride for the night and then tomorrow I wake up feeling empty and hollow?"

The 27-year-old singer has been romantically linked to a number of high-profile stars over the years - including Leonardo DiCaprio and, most recently, Travis Scott - but she is adamant she won't settle for second best.

She explained: "Men are afraid to be men.

"They won't be a gentleman because that makes them appear soft... Girls are settling for that, but I won't."
