What Question Flustered Rihanna So Much She Ended The Interview?

rihanna flustered over chris brown questions

Everyone’s been talking about Rihanna’s SEVEN Complex magazine covers. But it turns out the interview was just as interesting. As expected, Rihanna was asked about her ongoing musical collaborations with Chris Brown as well as the status of their relationship. Now despite the tweets and Instagram pics and their public outings, Rihanna’s still telling interviewers it’s like the title of her song: ‘Nobody’s Business.’ The interviewer for Complex asked what seems like- to me- a perfectly reasonable follow-up question, which was:

 If her relationship with Brown is truly nobody’s business, then why make a record about it?

Here’s Rihanna’s reaction, according to the article:

Her voice, usually warm and cut with chuckles, turns cold. “Pardon me?” she replies, her eyebrow slightly raised. Even after the question is repeated, she hesitates to answer. The hands that moved up and down throughout the conversation, suddenly fall flat. “It’s the truth. Remember?” she says, turning toward the other side of the table to gather her belongings. As she gets up to leave, she adds: “It’s a fun record that The-Dream wrote and we loved the lyrics. You’re still asking me questions about it so clearly you don’t know.”

Personally, that’s the question I’ve been DYING to ask. I’m truly shocked no one apparently prepped Rihanna on how to respond to that question. Then again, it could be as the writer finished up the article speculated:

Maybe she doesn’t know either.

Do you think the interviewer crossed the line?
