Rihanna says she doesn’t feel the need to talk to her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, who brutally beat her in 2009.

The singer has drawn the criticism of some bloggers after deciding to change the terms of her restraining order against Brown.
“You can never please people,” she replies in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. “That’s my decision…it doesn’t mean we’re getting married tomorrow. It doesn’t mean we’re gonna be in a relationship, or make up, or even talk ever again. It just means I didn’t want to object to the judge.”
Under the new terms of the restraining order, the ex-lovers can mingle at events in the music industry as long as Brown doesn’t harass or assault the 22-year-old singer.
“What he did to me was a personal thing. It had nothing to do with his career. Saying [he can't perform at awards show] definitely made it difficult for him,” said Rihanna.
“We don’t have to talk again ever in my life. I just didn’t want to make it more difficult for him professionally,” she explains.
In the interview, Rihanna also denies dating Colin Farrell or Ryan Phillippe: “I’m not dating. I’m not even sexting. I’m on complete nil,”
The pop star didn’t, however, hide her naughty side. “I like to be spanked,” she says. “Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned — you’ve got to stop and get the whip from the drawer downstairs.”
She also loves daring shots: “When you’re not with the person you want to be intimate with, a picture is the next best thing,” she says. “A picture lasts a long time. When you’re alone, and those horny moments come up, pictures can be very handy.”
