Rihanna Calls Questions About Chris Brown ‘Trivial’ During Interview

Rihanna sat down with Esquire Magazine UK and, as could be expected, she was asked about her relationship with her ex, Chris Brown, and she wasn’t too happy about it.

The interview started off innocently enough. The writer asked about her recent collaboration with Brown for the “Birthday Cake” remix and the singer expressed surprise at the controversy surrounding the song. “It caught me a little off-guard to be honest…especially the amount of…negative attention. Because it never occurred to me how this was a problem, you know. It really didn’t,” said Rihanna.

As the interview progressed, the “Where Have You Been?” singer seemed to get annoyed as the reporter pressed the issue and implied that the former couple might be sending out the wrong message by working together.

“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,” she remarked. “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.”

The interviewer eventually apologized but by that time, Rihanna wanted a subject change. “It hasn’t upset me. It upsets me that you keep asking the same kind of questions about stuff that’s trivial,” said the songbird. “What’s there to talk about? Are all your questions like that? Let’s move onto the next one.”
