I do think I’m a bit of a masochist
Rihanna for Rolling Stone magazine
This is what Rihanna said during her interview for Rolling Stone magazine. Then she added that she “likes to be spanked. Being tied up is fun”. But at least the singer is honest and funny. She has that kind of irony that makes you wonder if she’s just joking or she’s serious.
Here there are a few lines from her interview via Celebitchy.com:
On her father, and abuse: “I actually feel really bad for my father. He was abused too – he got beat up by his stepdad when he was young. He has resentment toward women, because he felt like his mom never protected him, and unfortunately, my mother was the victim of that. I’m not giving him excuses. Right is right and wrong is wrong. I still blame him. But I understand the source”.
On being a masochist: “I do think I’m a bit of a masochist. It’s not something I’m proud of, and it’s not something I noticed until recently. I think it’s common for people who witness abuse in their household. They can never smell how beautiful a rose is unless they get pricked by a thorn”.
On Chris Brown: “We don’t have to talk again ever in my life. I just didn’t want to make it more difficult for him professionally. What he did to me was a personal thing – it had nothing to do with his career. Saying he has to be a hundred feet away from me, he can’t perform at awards shows – that definitely made it difficult for him. That was the only thing it was going to change, so I didn’t care. But you can never please people. One minute I’m being too hard, and the next minute I’m a fool because I’m not being hard enough”.
