Rihanna: Happiness is everything


In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, Rihanna explains why she got back together with Chris Brown: “It was more important for me to be happy” than to worry about what fans thought about the controversial reconciliation, she says.

Late last year, the 24-year-old singer rekindled her romance with Brown, 23, who was charged with assaulting her almost four years ago.

“I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of [my happiness],” she told Rolling Stone (the new issue is out Friday). “Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. … He doesn’t have the luxury of f---ing up again. That’s just not an option.”

She vows that Brown, who is under investigation for an alleged assault in a West Hollywood parking lot, is “disgusted” by what he did in the past and that they “know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”
