The song that the Barbadian singer sings with Justin Timberlake tells about her altercation with Chris Brown which led to a messy split.

Rihanna has explained the song she wrote about her former lover Chris Brown, insisting the lyrics detail everything she "didn't say for the past eight months". The "Umbrella" beauty split from the singer last year shortly after a vicious fight with Brown that left her battered and bruised. He was later convicted of attacking her.

Rihanna eventually told her side of the story in a string of TV interviews several months after the incident, and has revealed working on her new album, "Rated R", allowed her to "vent" about the break-up.

Now she admits one of the songs - "Cold Case Love", a collaboration with Justin Timberlake - is about the bust-up with Brown. She tells CNN, "It's a song that everybody wanted to hear, everything that I didn't say for the past eight months, exactly how I felt about that relationship and how I feel about it now - that song says it all."

I am so sick of her, Rihanna is only using the incident for fame, she knows people are basically feeling sorry for her, and she is using it all she can. Not too long ago, everyone knows, Rihanna was not on top, not like Chris Brown was, apparently its not her talents that is putting her where she is now, its only because she sold her soul to the devil, and soon its going to backfire on her. And as far as the comment about Chris's begging songs, I don't think so, Crawl was basically about redemption, and all the other songs, he is not begging. If anybody is begging, its Rihanna, begging the world to continue to put money in her pockets even though at first she wasn't a victim, and she does not not see herself as a victim, which is it? You are a victim when its beneficial to you. Its ok for you to put your hands on Chris more than once, ok for you to hit your brother with a bottle, ok for you to be a jealous and controlling woman, but you are the innocent victim when it comes to furthering your career. I am not buying it, and I think its a slap in the face to the real victims of domestic violence, not someone who put their hands on somebody more than once, before they finally hit you back. Wrong is wrong, and Rihanna was wrong for putting her hands on Chris first.

Some of you really don't know sh** about life. You don't know what this girl has probably gone through. I ain't listen to her music much but I admire her strength, I really do.

Y'all are cracking me up! how can yall seriously say that she deserved to be beaten up?! where dem girls talking trash? where they at?!

I always knew that girls could be evil to one another but this Rihanna HATE is really PATHETIC.Rihanna has moved on to bigger and better things, where the hell of y'all been? Chris Brown is the one who made several begging songs to Rihanna, so let's be real. Also, no matter how many ridiculous excuses that you all try to create for Chris Brown, it's never going to change the fact that he's a convicted woman beater. WAKE UP! Chicas because he'll gladly beat y'all asses too.

She is just trying to make "cold case love" a single because her album is stalling. Even though he should have called the police on her, he just got tired of her hitting him and she is the one that admitted that she use to hit him.

this completely talentless skank can't write a sentence for real, she probably think that "moans" she puts in her "songs" is co-writing... This is alla staged PR stunt. She has the brain of a pea. And she can't sing nor perform for real to save her life. Her album is horrible. She's gross. Her 15 minutes are gone, and hopefully also Chris Brown's trash is going away after her. They're both scum.
