The source of the statement? Rihanna. The UK edition of Elle magazine’s tantalizing followup: “So let’s talk Chris… ” The interview itself has yet to be posted, but extracts will be revealed this weekend.


Badgalriri, incidentally, just celebrated her 25th birthday with Chris Brown — and a Rasta-themed cake decorated with a marijuana leaf made of gold icing.


For those still paying attention to the clothes, in an accompanying video the singer says the inspiration for the shoot was “a little bit of ’60s, mixed with ’90s.” On the pair of covers she’s clad in graphic, blue-and-white Prada and Louis Vuitton.


UPDATE: Perez Hilton got his hands on some interview snippets.


On her on-again romance with Brown: “We got a fresh start and I’m thankful for that … And right now that’s what we want, a great friendship that’s unbreakable. Now that we’re adults we can do this right.”


On why she took him back: “I have my own reasons, very, very private reasons. Very personal. A lot of things. Bottom line is — I know him. I had a lot to think about and I had a lot of time to think about it. I was trying to do this for myself … You don’t have that feeling (of everlasting love) with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he (Chris Brown) is the one I have that kind of relationship with.”
