Rihanna Continues to Talk About Chris Brown but Breezy Wants Her to ‘Move On’
In another preview clip from her ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ interview, which airs Sunday night, Rihanna drives the talk show doyenne around her native Barbados while she talks about — you guessed it! — Chris Brown.
RiRi is still licking her wounds and clearly still carries a torch for Brown. She spoke about it in her Harper’s Bazaar cover and multiple times in this interview, displaying raw emotion and vulnerability. Breezy, however, wants his ex to move on.
Oprah rides shotgun and asks if RiRi misses being with Chris, flat out. “I am reminded by a lot of things,” the ‘We Found Love’ singer muses. “Hotel rooms, tours, music, songs. I do miss him at times.”
Obviously, RiRi still has feelings for the man who beat her before the 2009 Grammys.
She claims to know what she wants in a man and that’s someone “that loves me, cherishes me, values me, and knows my work. I want them to respect me.”
But she also wants to enjoy the relationship. “I want fun times. I want fun, fun times. I have everything I want. All I want is a partner to enjoy it with,” Rihanna says. How sad. She deserves to be happy. RiRi has cultivated this tough image, with a wall around her heart that is hard to scale. Here, she shows that she does have a sensitive side.
Another way Ri expressed her deep love for Brown was by saying that despite the assault, where her face took the brunt of his anger, she was more concerned about him than about herself. That’s love — putting someone else ahead of yourself. She shows her vulnerability through her sobs.
“It became a circus and I felt protective,” she said in another preview. “I felt like the only person they hate right now is him. It was a weird, confusing space to be in because as angry as I was, as angry and hurt and betrayed, I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help.”
She continued, “Everybody’s gonna say he’s a monster without looking at the source. I was more concerned about him.”
While RiRi lamented losing her best friend with fresh tears, the incident is ancient history to Brown. Apparently, Breezy doesn’t think that it’s “productive” for his ex to keep drudging up the incident.
“Chris is just confused about Rihanna’s decision to bring up the past again and again,” a source told Radar Online. While Breezy doesn’t “begrudge” her for talking about the incident, he does think “that in order for them to both move forward and not be defined by that one night, it would be better to stop bringing it up.”
Well, it doesn’t seem like RiRi wants to move on. She is clearly in a holding pattern with a lot of unresolved feelings for Brown.
