The 'Diamonds' singer opens up about her friendship with the 'Turn Up The Music' rapper.
Rihanna has spoken candidly about her relationship with her former boyfriend Chris Brown, acknowledged that people are "fascinated" in their lives.
The 'We Found Love' singer split up with the 'Turn Up The Music' star after he assaulted her in 2009, but the pair have since reconciled.
And after Chris broke up with his girlfriend earlier this month, there has been speculation that the pair are set to get back together.
In an interview with Vogue magazine, Rihanna said people's perception of their friendship was different to reality and that the world "hasn't let go" from what happened in 2009.
"To the world, I feel like there's no closure," she said. "There's some obsession that's continued even throughout when we weren't friends or couldn't be friends at all. Hated each other. The world hasn't let go.
"They haven’t seen any progress in our friendship, because they don’t see anything, really, besides the song."
Earlier this year, RiRi surprised fans when she released a remix of her hit 'Birthday Cake' featuring Chris, which she told the magazine she had instigated.
"I didn't think it could be anything detrimental to my career," she said. "I was on a tour bus ride between two cities, listening to my album, thinking, Oooh, maybe I should make this into a duet. And I started coming up with a bunch of people, and his name crossed my mind. I thought, We haven't made a song in so long together... it could be a little shocking."
She continued: "So now it's a bit of a fascination, I guess. I don't know if people will stop soon, but I feel like as soon as they have closure to it, they will.
"But they're not on the inside. They can't see what I see, unless they're sitting in my point of view. I guess I'll learn to accept that."
Rihanna's cover interview with Vogue is released this month.
Rihanna's new single 'Diamonds' is out now. Her new album 'Unapologetic' is released on 19th November.
