Rihanna Wanted Breezy For Duet Because He's "Dirty"
RiRi also talks about her love for Chris in an interview with Harper's Bazaar...
During an interview with Harper's Bazaar magazine, RiRi addressed her collaboration with Brown - who infamously assaulted her back in 2009 - stating she thought it would be "cute" to hook up with a guy on the tune.
Explaining her decision to collaborate with Breezy, the 24-year old claimed: "I thought it would be cute to do it with a guy. I wondered, who can be dirty, someone who people will really believe?"
She went on to state that she can understand why people were concerned by her choice to team up with Chris, telling the mag: "Look, I understand that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn't see it that way because I'm in a different place.
"Music is music and my fans have been asking me to record with him. I just felt like it was time. It was time."
The Where Have You Been hitmaker also seemed to reference her relationship with Brown in the interview, stating: "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. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life.”
RiRi, who attended her grandmother Dolly's funeral earlier this week, added that her experience with Brown has made her wary of falling in love again, confessing: “I have been conservative in my love life… well it’s pretty much nonexistent.
"If I come across someone who I find cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find out that we’re getting too close I just don’t let people in."
She concluded: “That’s not good, something I’m not proud of. But it’s a place that has been tampered with before.”
