We always knew that Rihanna was sexy, so when Esquire named her ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ in their latest issue, we weren’t the least surprised. Watching the stunning 23-year-old Barbados-native bare all for the racy shoot, we were quite impressed. What we were surprised by is the way the “S&M” singer told the mag that when it comes to ex, Chris Brown, she is “still a fan.”
Yes, you heard that right. After the violent break up heard around the world (no, really, even in Barbados), the singer obviously was hurting for a long time. “Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I’ve put that behind me. It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger,” she told Esquire.
Since the star has put all of that behind her, somehow, she admits now that she really is into his music. “I’m really excited to see the breakthrough he’s had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have.”
While we appreciate her maturity in the whole Rihanna v. Chris Brown case and her nonchalent attitude about discussing the incident (since she only gets asked about it every day), we’re not sure if we’re a fan of her love for his music after what he’s done. It’s good that she has moved on, but to support him may not be the right image for Miss Ri-Ri to send out. But that’s for you to decide.
