Rihanna - Rihanna: Chris Brown Is The Hottest Artist Right Now

Rihanna has defended her decision to collaborate with Chris Brown, her former boyfriend who was convicted of assaulting her three years ago. The pair worked together on remixes of Birthday Cake and Turn Up the Music and have been spotted together at numerous social events in recent months.
Speaking to radio host Ryan Seacrest, Rihanna played down the controversy surrounding the collaborations, saying, "There shouldn't be a divide, you know.It's music and it's innocent". Brown's restraining order has now expired, meaning he can mix with Rihanna as much as he likes - something which she appears entirely comfortably with. The Barbadian singer explained, "I reached out to him about doing Birthday Cake because that's the only person that really . it made sense to do the record. Just as a musician, despite everything else, that was going to be the person. You know I thought about rappers, and I've done that so many times, and the hottest R&B artist out right now is Chris Brown". Though many predicted his conviction would be the downfall of his career, Brown has since recorded strong album sales and scooped a Grammy Award in February - much to the dismay of some fellow musicians.
