She's also defended her decision to give him a second chance, explaining that he makes her happy - but she WON'T let him 'f**k up again'. *shakes head*

Rihanna told Rolling Stone magazine: "I decided it was more important for me to be happy. I wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way of that. Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it."

Rihanna doesn't think that will happen. She said: "He doesn't have the luxury of f***ing up again. That's just not an option. I can't say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I'm pretty solid in the knowing that he's disgusted by that."

Well, we'd better get used to lots more Twitpics like this, then. Copyright [Rihanna]By 'that,' she means the time when Chris Brown violently assaulted her in 2009, bashing her head against a car dashboard and refusing to let her leave the vehicle.

Rihanna said: "I wouldn't have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility."

Well, let's cross our fingers and toes that it does work out well this time.
