It’s been over a year and a half since the Rihanna-Chris Brown insanity of 2009, and one of them now admits that they have no regrets about the assault. Ironically, it’s not the one we would have assumed. Says Rihanna, “God has a crazy way of working, and sometimes when stuff happens you feel like, ‘What did I do to deserve this?’ Why was it backfiring on me? But I needed that wake-up call in my life. I needed a turning point, and that’s what God was giving to me.” Yeah, we’ve been hearing a lot of stuff about this God character. We mean, sure he works in mysterious ways, but come on. Let’s not go overboard with the turning points here, Lord.
According to Ri-Ri, the backlash after the assault wasn’t much better. “All this terrible stuff they say to you, it breaks you down,” she admitted. “[But] once you’re back on your feet — if you ever make it back on your feet — that’s the ultimate achievement.” Rihanna has definitely not been letting grass grow under those feet over the past year, touring like crazy, befriending Katy Perry and furiously recording her new album. And with Chris Brown slowly building his acting career and working on his upcoming album F.A.M.E., hopefully they will both continue to be very, very successful. And to stay very, very far away from one another. [Photo: Splash News Online]
