Rihanna has defended her relationship Chris Brown, insisting her relationship with the rapper has changed.

The Talk That Talk singer has attracted controversy for rekindling her relationship with Brown after he assaulted her in 2009.

Now Rihanna, 25, has given a revealing interview to The Observer magazine defending Brown, 23.

She said: "It's different now. We don't have those types of arguments any more. We talk about [stuff]. We value each other."

Responding to the suggestion that Brown doesn't appear to have changed after losing his temper in public, Rihanna said: "I know it comes off like that, And it doesn't help. For a long time he was really angry... there's so many reasons why I ever reconsidered having him in my life.

"He's not the monster everyone thinks. He's a good person. He has a fantastic heart. He's giving and loving. And he's fun to be around. That's what I love about him - he always makes me laugh."

The couple - who rekindled their romance late last year - spent a romantic holiday together in Hawaii this week to celebrate Rihanna's 25th birthday.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
