Though she looked to be having a good time at the Esquire U.K. photoshoot, July cover girl Rihanna was none too pleased to answer questions about ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. ”Some people felt it sent the wrong message … You’d gone back to someone who put you in the hospital,” the journalist told Rihanna, referring to reports that the two reunited after Brown physically abused the Barbados singer in 2009.
“Oh really? Did I?” Rihanna snapped back, according to the Huffington Post. “Did I? Did I? Did I? … Okay. In a completely professional environment. And on a complete professional note. I mean, if I went back to him [as a girlfriend], then that’s a whole different discussion … I think a lot of people jumped to an assumption that was incorrect and they ended up looking stupid.”
Still, the journalist pressed on for more out of Rihanna, which really pissed her off.
“This is turning into a tacky interview,” Rihanna finally said. “What do you really want to talk about? I’m not here to [talk] about messy s**t … It upsets me that you keep asking the same kind of questions about stuff that’s trivial. What’s there to talk about? Are all your questions like that?”
