‘She Is The Most Beautiful Girl In The World:’ Chris Brown Says He And Rihanna Are Definitely An Item
On Oscar night Chris Brown revealed to Page Six during Elton John’s HIV Foundation party that he and Rihanna have rekindled their romance and that they have officially entered into an exclusive relationship with one another.
“We are really happy. We are back together. She is the most beautiful girl in the world. But I’m sad she couldn’t be here tonight; she is rehearsing for her tour,” Brown said to Page Six.
Not that anyone with two eyes and an internet connection was unaware of this, but its cool to see him gush and actually admit it. Rihanna also discussed her relationship with Brown in an interview late last month.
“He doesn’t have the luxury of f***ing up again. That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility. He made a mistake, and he’s paid his dues. He’s paid so much. And I know that’s not a place he would ever want to go back to. And sometimes people need support and encouragement, instead of ridicule and criticism and bashing,” she said of the 2009 assault that ended their relationship.
Brown described the incident as his “biggest mistake” in an interview with The Mirror.
“That night was the deepest regret of my life, the biggest mistake. But she loves me – what can I say? I’m forgiven… but, yes, I worked hard for it.”
Chris went on to dish on the bond that he’s formed with Elton John, who he says has shown him tons of support regarding his reunion with Rih Rih.
“I met Elton about a year ago, and he’s been a good friend to me. So it is great to be here tonight to support him,” he said to Page Six.
Chris also expressed his desire to work on a musical collaboration with John someday.
“Music is music. It transcends everything, so I would love it if we could work together,” the singer revealed.
Despite Chris and Rihanna’s tumultuous past, it is nice to see how happy they are with one another. As for that Elton John-Chris Brown collaboration, that could be interesting.
What are your thoughts on Chris and Rihanna’s reunion?
Well isn’t Rihanna just delving into a little bit of everything these days? When she’s not doing the music thing, she’s trying to act, when she’s not acting, she’s collaborating on fashions with River Island (whether critics like it or not), and when she’s not doing that, she’s partnering with MAC cosmetics. Where did MY life go wrong??
Anywho, according to Women’s Wear Daily, the Bajan singer and the famed makeup retailer have teamed up to create a variety of color collections, including her own take on the famed red Ruby Woo color, a personal favorite of hers, calling it “RiRi Woo.” What will RiRi Woo be like? “She wanted RiRi Woo to be slightly more blue-red and retro matte — a matte with moisturizer finish we’d used in a collection years ago and currently only have in one product, “says Jennifer Balbier, senior VP of global product development for the brand. “She was especially adamant that the color be suitable for every skin tone.”
She told WWD that she’s been riding for MAC for so long, it only made sense to put her own stamp on their products. “When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind — for something legit — is MAC. Whatever color you want, it’s like ‘Let’s go to MAC.’ I’ve been using MAC on tour for such a long time it was a natural fit for me. I have always loved makeup, and I always said that if I do it, I want to do it with a credible brand.”
And while MAC is known for teaming up with celebs, including Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Cyndi Lauper and Elton John for its Viva Glam products, John Demsey, the president of MAC’s parent company, Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., tells WWD that they want to make this a lasting partnership, so homegirl’s contributions won’t be temporary. They’ll be working with her on “four distinct color initiatives,” AKA, four different collections.
“These four collections are like four tracks on a Rihanna compilation. Each one has its own vibe, look, special makeup packaging and flavor. This is really the convergence of pop culture, fast fashion, and iconic style and makeup.”
If you’re a big fan of Rihanna and will be in Brooklyn during her Diamonds tour stops on May 4 and 5 at the Barclays Center, according to WWD, MAC will be doing a pop-up shop to sell her new collection, including the RiRi Woo. If you’re not there, you can catch all of her products in a MAC store later this year.
Hmmm, I might be hellas of late, but I guess it’s safe to say that her CoverGirl status is dead? Oh well, this collaboration is definitely an upgrade either way.
