Rihanna Praises Rachel Dolezal + Talks Chris Brown & Flings

Rihanna tells the publication that she took Chris Brown back because she really believed she could change him.

When asked if she figured she could make him a better person, she says:

“A hundred percent. I was very protective of him. I felt that people didn’t understand him. Even after… But you know, you realize after a while that in that situation you’re the enemy. You want the best for them, but if you remind them of their failures, or if you remind them of bad moments in their life, or even if you say I’m willing to put up with something, they think less of you—because they know you don’t deserve what they’re going to give.

“And if you put up with it, maybe you are agreeing that you [deserve] this, and that’s when I finally had to say, ‘Uh-oh, I was stupid thinking I was built for this.’ Sometimes you just have to walk away.

“I don’t hate him. I will care about him until the day I die. We’re not friends, but it’s not like we’re enemies. We don’t have much of a relationship now.”

And although she’s rumored to be dating rapper Travis Scott, Rihanna claims to be single in the interview but isn’t up for flings these days:

“If I wanted to [just have sex for fun] I would completely do that. I am going to do what makes me feel happy, what I feel like doing. But that would be empty for me; that to me is a hollow move. I would wake up the next day feeling like sh*t.

“When you love somebody, that’s different. Even if you don’t love them per se, when you care enough about somebody and you know that they care about you, then you know they don’t disrespect you. And it’s about my own respect for myself.

“That’s why I haven’t been having s*x or even really seeing anybody, because 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? He has a great story and I’m like…what am I doing? I can’t do it to myself. I cannot. It has a little bit to do with fame and a lot to do with the woman that I am. And that saves me.”

  1. I don’t agree with her about Rachel cause I don’t see that woman as being anybody’s hero. But that was just a small part of a very insightful interview. Definitely was worth the read. Plus, she slayed in the pics, per usual.

  2. Wow, she’s really not the smartest. Well I guess her fans don’t mind as long as she’s still pretty, dresses well and takes nice pictures right?

    1. She’s smart enough to create an empire tho! And this will be forgotten about by the end of the day. Lmao.

      1. Kim Kardashian has an empire…so what does that mean? You don’t have to be smart to make money in America stan. Rihanna is still a simpleton.

  3. She’s going to get dragged by Black Twitter. Anyway, she looks beautiful on the cover. I’m not going to say much more because I really wish her and Chris would stop talking about each other.

  4. A hero really girl please. Anybody else would be getting dragged but because she is Rihanna she getting a pass but she sounds very stupid and ignorant.

  5. Some things are better left unsaid. It seems the more celebrities talk the more stupid they sound which lets you know reading and comprehension are not factors.

  6. Now I like Rih but this interview has me giving her the side eye. And can they stop asking her about Chris now?

  7. Rihanna is such an airhead. How the hell is Rachel a hero when she lied about being black to reap the benefits? I swear this chick turns me off more and more. She needs to just stop talking.

  8. Rihanna needs to clear this up ASAP. She’s getting dragged on Twitter and I never thought I’d see the day.

  9. She’s starting to get on my nerves. It’s like she’s at a crossroad or something. Maybe she’s trying to change her image idk but she’s not coming off authentic anymore. And talking about Chris? Just stop. Drop #R8 and get back to slaying girl.

  10. Well I wouldn’t say the Rachel lady is a hero…..but she was and is very brave…..she has did her just due pretending to be Black and actually I am flattered….she was living as a Black woman….being very respectful to our race. She didn’t do a Kardashian or Cyrus and mock us…..I guess I’m the minority cuz I totally agree wit Rihanna on all the other stuff…… I actually been thru some of the shyt she is talking about…..I appreciate how open and real she is

    1. You and riri need reality checks. Imitation is not always flattery. She did more harm than good (alienate Afro Latinos, white passing black folks will have it harder a la Shaun King, and more). She faked race crimes. There’s nothing brave about being a con artist. Open your eyes.

  11. I guess Rihanna doesn’t know Rachel actually sued a hbcu for discrimination as a white woman. Rachel doesn’t genuinely love black culture. She uses black culture to her advantage and has been for years.

  12. This Wh0re of Babylon was probably high or drunk when she gave the interview. She sounds so dumb calling Rachel Dolezal a hero.

  13. Wayment! So we dragged Michael B Jordan to hell and back for what he said but Rihanna gets a slap on the wrist? Now UB fam, y’all got some explaining to do!

    1. Michael has opened his mouth and inserted it many times about black people and our ongoing issues with representation in this country. Rihanna saying one thing that we don’t agree with doesn’t deserve the epic dragging that Michael would get.

  14. I’m not feeling that cheap a-s red lacefront she has on. But back to the topic, if she talks about Chris’ punk a-s one more time I’ma scream. What more is left to say about that old a-s sh-t? And she can get the f-ck on praising Rachel’s single white female a-s. That b-tch has some loose screws and no I’m not moved she spent her whole life pretending to be black because I don’t find con artists admirable.

  15. I knew she would get dragged for the Hero comments. Hey, it is her opinion, like it or not, agree with it or not, we all are entitled to our own. Overall I liked the interview.
