More excerpts from Rihanna's interview with Rolling Stone Magazine...
On the opinion that Chris Brown still hasn't changed, based on his behavior:
"I know it comes off like that. And it doesn't help. For a long time he was really angry, and he felt like he couldn't get away from it, no matter what he did. But there's so many reasons why I ever reconsidered having him in my life. He's not the monster everybody 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. All I want to do is laugh, really – and I do that with him."On believing that Chris Brown has changed:
"Of course everybody has their opinion about him, because of what he's done. That will always be there. But 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."On being the one to support Chris Brown:
"Wait. You think I'm here to rehabilitate Chris? No, no, no. That is not my purpose. Trust me. I could have done that from the jump if I thought that was my job. My job was to take care of myself – and I did. I wouldn't be here if I didn't think Chris was ready."On people being worried about her with Chris Brown:
"I know. And trust me – it makes me feel great to know that people care. I guess it's just something that will show with time. There's nothing I could say that would convince you right now. But we're in a great place. And I can't ever see us going back."On how much she will put up with from Chris Brown going forward:
"Listen, I'll tell you right now: I don't have to take it. If he gives me that again, here's what I give him: nothing. I just walk away. He doesn't have that luxury of (expletive) up again. That's just not an option. I can't say that nothing else will go wrong. But I'm pretty solid in knowing that he's disgusted by that. And I wouldn't have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility."On not mistaking her love for weakness:
"I could never identify with that word, 'weak.' I couldn't have come out of this if I was weak. No way."On calling her album Unapologetic as an answer to everyone who thinks she should be a better role model:
"I could never tell a 10-year-old to look at me, because I know I'm not perfect. That's not what I signed up for."On if she wants to have babies someday:
"Hell, yeah. But I wish I could order them."
