Rihanna Is Not Sorry About Chris Brown Collaboration; Says 2009 Assault Gave Her Metaphorical "Guns"

Like so many others, this publication is guilty of milking the Rihanna vs. Chris Brown cow. But for the amount of drama it produces, you can't really blame us.

Rolling Stone is reporting that RiRi recently opened up about the public's reaction to her February collaboration with Chris Brown. In an interview with Elle magazine, the 24-year-old singer said she refuses to apologize, affirming that she's, "still going to do what I want to do." And if that means showing off her nipple ring, so be it.

"[The assault] gave me guns," Rihanna tells Elle. "I was like, well, fuck. They know more about me than I want them to know. It's embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of 'bring it.' I wanted people to know who I am. Whatever they take that to be, good or bad, I just want them to know the truth."

For Rihanna, that truth involves her sadomasochistic lifestyle, offensively perfect body, and see-through garments. But warts and all, Robyn Rihanna Fenty does not really give a fuck about what you think of her.

"It's like, one less skeleton in the closet, one less burden, one less secret; now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don't have anything to hide."
