Rihanna and Chris Brown “Not Together,” Give Back Through Charity

Rihanna and Chris Brown have both confirmed that they are not back together, but they are still working on their “friendship” while RiRi prepares for two tours.

For weeks, rumors have expose Chris Brown as a player manipulating both Rihanna and Karrueche Tran’s feelings, but the bad boy of R&B is finally ready to weigh in on that.

As expected, his response was pretty much that he simply doesn’t care what people think and that he really just wants them to “buy an album, damn it.”

The “Don’t Wake Me Up” crooner had stopped by to talk to Big Boy of L.A. Power’s 106 where he claimed that he and his ex aren’t back together – and that goes for both of them.

The Virginia native claimed he was still working on his “friendship” with the “Diamonds” songstress, but still confessed his love for her in the viral video he released a few weeks ago.

“It’s just me being honest with myself,” Brown said in reference to the black and white video in which he confesses his love for both Rihanna and Karrueche. “Me and [Rihanna] have history and me and her definitely gonna be best of friends, and we’re working on our friendship now.”

Making the video was one thing, but Big Boy was also curious what drove Chris to post the video and share it with the world and then immediately ask the public not to judge him.

“When I feel a certain urge, whether it’s music or emotion, I feel it’s good to share with people, cause it’s an experience and a life lesson,” he tried to explain.

He did accurately admit that he never expected the world to understand – and he’s absolutely right… we don’t

Meanwhile, the Bajan beauty also denied any allegations that she was back with Chris during a Facebook live interview with Bravo’s Andy Cohen on Wednesday.

“No. Not together,” the 24-year-old answered dryly.

She did share the same views when it came to the public, but the “Where Have You Been” songstress certainly had a better way of explaining herself.

“Basically [it’s] the way I look at everything regarding my personal life,” she explained. “Even though you have to witness it, it’s still mine… this is still mine at this point and when it gets to my music, I’ll give and I’ll give, and I just feel like I need to keep a bit for me that I get to decide. If I had it my way, it would be really nobody’s business.”

Jay-Z’s mentee also took the time to play a word association game with Cohen, during which she claimed that that her ex is still “kinda alright.”

The list started with Kanye West in which RiRi answered, “Genius.”

After that it was her mentor Jay-Z in which she answered, “Even more genius.”

When it came down to Beyonce, however, Brown’s ex admitted that Queen Bey is “gorgeous and a stab to my ego.”

Finally Cohen asked for what the “We Found Love” crooner thought of first after hearing her ex’s name. The R&B star replied, “He’s dope too. He’s kinda alright.”

Meanwhile, the “Man Down” singer has been busy preparing for a promotional tour in anticipation of her new album set to release on November 19.

The tour is called “777” in which the Good Girl Gone Bad will take on 7 different countries, give 7 different performances, and in only 7 days as she prepares to release her 7th studio album in 7 years… talk about a lucky number.

Despite the flock of relationship rumors, both of the young celebs put the drama aside for charity.

The young starlet used her fame and new album to give back to the community too as she hosted a listening party in which all guests brought a variety of donations for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. From designer clothes and bags, to basic necessities such as cleaning products and toiletries Jay-Z’s 40/40 was packed with donations.

Meanwhile, Chris released a touching video in which he spilled his heart out explaining why he found it so necessary to create the Symphonic Love Foundation in L.A.

His foundation has funded six charitable programs that helped the community through focusing on art and dance and even domestic violence.

The “Don’t Judge Me” crooner is also passionately involved with the Jenesse Center in Center in L.A. which gives abused women and children a place to go where they can be safe from domestic violence.
