Rihanna, Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, talks Chris Brown fandom


Rihanna, Esquire’s top lady. (Esquire.)
Rihanna has been named Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, a somewhat dubious honor that has given her fans a new risque/seaweed-y picture of the Barbados-born beauty for their walls.

In an interview with the mag (yes, there’s more than just pictures), the singer expresses her admiration for her ex-boyfriend, Chris Brown, and his career. Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna in 2009:

“It's incredible to see how he pulled out of it the way he did. Even when the world seemed like it was against him, you know? I really like the music he's putting out. I'm a fan of his stuff. I've always been a fan. Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I've put that behind me. It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger. I'm really excited to see the breakthrough he's had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have.”
