After being battered by Chris Brown earlier this year, Rihanna says she will probably befriend him again but not in the near future. "Maybe in like ten years, you know? But it's not something that I'm depending on. I'm not depending on his friendship," she tells Lisa DePaulo of GQ magazine.

In a revealing interview for the publication's January 2010 issue, Rihanna also opens up about how bad Chris' battery has affected her. "I didn't really want to be around anybody, for them to stare at me and stuff, and feel sorry for me. So I just - I stayed in the house a lot. Then I started to get cabin fever. I was like, I'm going crazy in here," she recalls her days post their altercation.

It was since then that she decided to leave the incident behind and started moving on by "talking about it" a lot. "I wanted to move on. And I knew that was the only way I could have done it. And I wanted people to move on with me. 'Cause the last big thing they know about me is That Night. And I don't want that to be what people define me as," she quips.

"It took a lot of strength to pull out of that relationship," she says. "To finally just officially cut it off. It was like night and day. It was two different worlds. It was the world I lived for two years, and then having the strength to say, 'I'm gonna step into my own world. Start over'."

"It's relieving," says the 21-year-old singer of breaking up from Chris. "Because it was built up for so long, and all these thoughts and emotions have been running through my mind for the past eight months. And now it's like I finally get to let go and move on."

Already learning her lessons from Chris' assault, Rihanna shares to GQ the best advice she can offer to women in abusive relationships, saying "Stop blaming yourself for that outcome. There's nothing you can do, ever, to excuse a man's behavior like that."

Chris Brown ruined his own life! His actions after the incident prove that he is an immature little shit who needs to take a few steps back and assess CB supporters should do the same!

With each interview she does, she contridicts herself everytime. One minute she's a victim, the next she does not see herself as a victim, she does not want to be the spokes person for domestic violence, she wants to focus on her career, she wishes Chris well, leaves the door open for a possible relationship, now it's maybe in 10 years and she regrets talking about the incident. But everybody is talking about Chris contridicting himself, what the hell is wrong with this picture? She doesn't want to be a victim, but she uses it for CD sales, and fortune. But it is wrong for Chris to go on with his life and career. I wish SHE would shut the hell up, causw what went on is as much her fault, as a woman, I know she hit me first several times, that is what a woman does when she finds out her man has been cheating or even suspects he has. Elin Woods prime example. I feel sorry for the real victims of domestic violence, not Rihanna, she is a fake and a phony, and I wish she and all the haters of Chris Brown would get over themselves.

Stop RiRi and the media...This is getting ridiculous. She should not be a spokes person for abuse..She is doing this for her career. Everybody know she want CB back and regret what went down because she started it. Don't get me wrong.. CB wrong for losing control. But as a black sista...I know she hit him first.. I would have...She even said on 20/20 they were like in an obsessive relationship...The media is so one sided....SHAME
