Talk about over-sharing! RiRi is putting the assault by Chris behind her — and opens up about her taste for S&M: ‘Being submissive is really fun’! But is this the time to talk about being whipped?
When Rihanna speaks, she really spills — she tells Rolling Stone getting hit by Chris Brown sent her into a terrible emotional tailspin. But somehow, she also thinks it’s a good time to reveal her kinky bedroom secrets!
“Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun,” she says in this eye-popping interview. “You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge of your sh*t. That’s fun to me…I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned – you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs. I’d rather have him use his hands.”
She also says she likes to sext. So it sure sounds like her hit “S&M” is based on her real-life habits. But her relationship with Chris spun out of control when it turned violent in whole different way in 2009. Now she wants to move on.
We’re glad to hear that RiRi has gotten her emotional life together. But it seems a little strange to be talking so openly about S&M in the bedroom so soon after being a victim of domestic violence.
She says she agreed to let the restraining order against Chris be eased so he could perform at award shows when she was present : “That’s my decision. It doesn’t mean we’re gonna make up, or even talk again. It just means I didn’t want to object to the judge.”
The whole mess took its toll on her nerves. “I put my guard up so hard,” she says. “I didn’t want people to see me cry. I didn’t want people to feel bad for me. It was a very vulnerable time in my life, and I refused to let that be the image. I wanted them to see me as, ‘I’m fine, I’m tough.’ I put that up until it felt real.”
But it doesn’t mean she ever wants to see Chris again. “We don’t have to talk ever again in my life. I just didn’t want to make it more difficult for him professionally. What he did 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.”
We hope Rihanna is standing strong now — and that her taste for whips and chains doesn’t indicate any deeper issues she needs to get a handle on!
