Rihanna Reached Out to Chris Brown ‘Cause He’s Hot

Who cares that these two were totally in love and were together for years? And so what if he beat the crap out of her in 2009? It’s all irrelevant, because now Rihanna and Chris Brown are collaborating on two songs.

Who? What? How?

Well, Riri explains why she reached out to Brown to collaborate on the two new songs: “I reached out to him about doing ‘Birthday Cake’ because that’s the only person that really — it made sense to do the record. Just as a musician — despite everything else — that was going to be the person.”

“I thought about rappers, and I’ve done that so many times, and the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown. So I wanted him on the track,” she continues.

So, it’s all business . . . it’s nothing personal at all, right? No rekindling flames? No sparks? No fireworks? No nostalgic feelings?
