Rihanna said that there are “constant reminders” in her life about her ex-boyfriend and the man that battered her, Chris Brown, and that she doesn’t turn off his music when it comes on the radio.
“I like his music,” she said in an exclusive interview with the Bert Show on Q100 Atlanta on Thursday, adding she thinks of Brown most when she hears his songs, or songs they liked together, on the radio.
Rihanna, whose full name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, said she doesn’t have the number of her newest rumored lover, 90210 hunk Tristan Wilds, but hung out with him once at a house party.
The Umbrella singer told the Bert Show that she doesn’t have the time and energy to put toward a committed relationship right now, but added she remains a “flirty girl.”
The Shut Up And Drive singer said the Los Angeles Police Department exploited her by selling a picture of her battered face last February after Chris Brown throttled her.
“They were definitely trying to exploit me only because they sold it,” Rihanna said. “If they were trying to save me they would put it out …. it made me feel very unsafe in the LAPD Department because it was a confidential case.”
The Disturbia singer said the “most disappointing part” that the officials who released the picture were female.
The 21-year-old Barbadian beauty, known for her daring styles and high forehead, said she felt relieved after her big interview with ABC’s 20/20, and received more than 1,500 e-mails of positive feedback shortly after it aired.
“It let me know that I did the right thing,” she said.
Brown was sentenced to five years’ probation and ordered to do 180 days of community labor as a part of the plea deal he made in June for his assault, which took place in in Hancock Park, California. The restraining order issued to Brown orders to keep his distance from her for five years.
