We’re used to Rihanna showing a bit of skin so that’s not what attracted us to her UK Esquire interview… it was the actual interview itself. The interview clearly followed the release of “Cake,” featuring Chris Brown and Miss Rihanna, frustrated with the line of questioning, definitely had no problem throwing some sass back.
Excerpt from HighSnobette
Esquire: Some people felt [the collaboration with Chris Brown] sent the wrong message. Rihanna: [Angrily] What was that? What message would that be? Esquire: You’d gone back to someone who put you in the hospital. Rihanna: [Getting angry] Oh really? Did I? Esquire: Well… yes. Rihanna: Did I? Did I? Did I? Esquire: You went and recorded with him, yes. Rihanna: Okay. In a completely professional environment. And on a complete professional note. I mean, if I went back to him [as a girlfriend], then that’s a whole different discussion. And if I ever do, then that’s something that y’all have to talk to me about when – if – that ever happens. Until then, look at it for what it is. I think a lot of people jumped to an assumption that was incorrect and they ended up looking stupid. Esquire: The assumption you were dating again? Rihanna: Because of a song. How stupid. If I was together with every collaborator I worked with… f-ck my life. Esquire: Still, the lyrics didn’t do much to dispel that impression. His opening line is “Girl I want to fuck you right now/been a long time/I’ve been missing your body”. You reply: “Remember how you did it/If you still want to kiss it/Then come and get it”. Rihanna: That was the tone before he was even on the record. You think it was going to be about hopscotch or jump rope?
