Rihanna wants 'public closure' on Brown break-up

Rihanna is seeking public closure on her break-up with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

The 24-year-old singer says the world has been "obsessed" with every detail of their tumultuous relationship since Chris was convicted of assaulting her in 2009.

And she's trying to understand why.

"To the world, I feel like there's no closure," she told American Vogue. "There's some obsession that's continued even throughout when we weren't friends or couldn't be friends at all. Hated each other."

The pair have rebuilt a friendship over the years.

Rumours of a reconciliation hit a high note when Chris dumped girlfriend Karrueche Tran earlier this month, citing his "friendship" with Rihanna as being partially to blame.

In the newly-released interview, conducted in August, the Barbadian pop star admits she's struggling to understand why the public is so interested.

"The world hasn't let go… So now it's a bit of a fascination, I guess. But they're not on the inside," she said, insisting, "They can't see what I see, unless they're sitting in my point of view. I guess I'll learn to accept that."

Expanding your horizons isn't possible right now. There are lots of mundane responsibilities that require your attention. Neglecting these duties will create enemies. People are relying on you to pull your weight. The sooner you tackle your work, the faster you will be able to enjoy some leisure time. Catching up on your reading, playing a sport or watching a movie will help you wind down. There are worse things than being held captive by a regular routine.More
