Rihanna Is Unapologetic As She Should Be

Rihanna has just released the cover for her seventh studio album, Unapologetic. The singer is photographed topless with life mantras such as victory, fun, happy, and fearless, written as graffiti on top of the picture. Most notably, the word “love” sits across the celeb’s face, crossing her third eye and clearly making a statement. In the last few weeks, Rih Rih has been “unapologetic” about her rekindled friendship and rumored romance with her ex Chris Brown, saying their relationship is no one’s business but theirs. This album cover seems to reinforce her stance in a very provocative way, as an attempt to put many of her critics back in their place.

This summer, the Bajan pop queen sat down with Oprah Winfrey in her home country Barbados, and confessed that she still loves the R&B bad boy. Calling him her true love and admitting that they’ve rebuilt a friendship, the international star set the media afire with the intimate news, and many of her fans anticipated a romantic reunion. Brown recently broke up with his girlfriend Karreuche Tran, and publicly stated that he loves both women but wants them to be free. This complicated scenario doesn’t seem to faze Rihanna though, as she has stood by him, defending their friendship on Twitter and making public appearances with him.

The songstress is undeniably shameless about loving the man who beat her just three years ago on that unfortunate night. Refusing to be a traditional poster child for domestic violence, the young woman is writing her own love story by allowing herself to love Brown and explore whatever the future may hold for them. She works hard. She’s an adult. She has the right to live her life accordingly. She doesn’t owe her fans anything but good music, which she plans to deliver in this seventh studio album.

Clearly, the music star is unapologetic, as any freethinking woman should be. And while her critics may torch her for it, I doubt her fans would love her if she were anything else.
