Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together or still together, depending on what you believe. Despite rumors that they had split up, Rihanna posted a new photo of her and Breezy on Instagram.

RiRi cozied up to her boo as they rode around Los Angeles in a convertible on a day off from her “Diamonds World Tour.” She quoted lyrics from Chris’ hit “Look at Me Now.”

“Yellow model chick in my yellow ass dress wit my yellow nigga X … This shit look like a toupee.”

Their fans rejoiced after seeing the photo. “This is the most beautiful thing ever,” wrote one Instagram commenter, while another added, “Love you two together let the haters hate.”

Last night, RiRi got a visit from Amber Rose backstage at her show at the Honda Center in Anaheim. See a photo below.

A year ago, Chris Brown had sworn off interviews, but now he’s everywhere and telling all. The R&B superstar sat down with Angie Martinez on Hot 97 for yet another promo stop on his road to X.

No topic was off limits—from his love triangle with Rihanna and Karrueche Tran to his beefs with Drake and Frank Ocean to why he won’t do an interview with Oprah. A carefree Chris also shared his plans to shoot 10 music videos and release them by the time his sixth album drops in July or August.

Read highlights from their candid conversation below.

On why he put out a video last fall addressing his love triangle with Rihanna and Karrueche: “I wanted to be more of a man. Me being young, even with relationships in the past, I did a lot of lying, I did everything just to make sure nobody gets hurt in the process. I just don’t feel it’s necessary anymore in my life. Nobody can hate me for being honest. I had to just be brutal. I told both of them that the video was coming out. … I’m not trying to be a player. It’s never an easy situation to tell another person that you still love another person, so that’s kinda difficult. But our friendship, me and Karrueche’s friendship, is still cool. We’re still good friends.”

On whether Rihanna is cool with him being friends with Karrueche: “Yeah, to a degree…”

On Drake: “Me and him don’t see eye to eye. We never gonna see eye to eye, so you go your way, I’ma go mine.”

On whether Rihanna has issues with Drake: “I don’t really try to talk about him when I’m around her. I just lay the pipe.”

On Frank Ocean: “I think it’s a lot of strategies people try to use when they’re up for awards. It’s a sympathy role. I don’t have to go that route. I just do my music, do my thing. For him, it’s whatever. Love your music, bro. Have fun.”

On doing an interview with Oprah: “I’ve been invited, I just say no at this point. I’ll go to people that I’m comfortable with. I never wanna be in a situation where I feel like I’m attacked or I’m gonna be trapped. I think I’m paying for whatever I’ve done and I’ve learnt from it and I’m moving forward, so I only want to surround myself with the people that are about positivity.”

On his X plans: “I’m trying to do 10 videos because my album is X. I’m gonna do 10 videos and I’m gonna start shooting them before the album comes out. When the album drops, I drop all 10 videos so you see the visuals with the actual songs that you’ll love.”

On the “Law & Order” episode inspired by his relationship with Rihanna: “I didn’t even watch it ’cause I feel like it was ignorance. I feel like they were reaching.”

On whether Rihanna is his soul mate: “To a degree, yeah. Before I was madly in love with her and when I lost her, I was like, ‘Man, I don’t know what I’ma do.’”

On his legacy: “I just want to be a legend. I think my [goal] now is just to make my mark in the game as just an established artist and just a real artist and a culture ambassador. I feel like I’m just getting successful. I think the hard part is over. I went through the obstacles that God kinda made me go through so I could be humble.”

Chris Brown Talks Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and New Album ‘X’ with Ryan Seacrest

Chris Brown has had his fair share of trouble in the past, but he’s turning a new page. On Tuesday, the 23-year-old singer stopped by Ryan Seacrest’s studio for a candid conversation about his personal and professional life. Nothing was off limits—from reuniting with Rihanna (“I’m eternally grateful and thankful”) to his past mistakes (“I can’t go around blaming”) to his fight with a valet over $10 to why he deleted his Instagram page.

He also shared details about his upcoming sixth album X and getting in the studio with Jennifer Lopez.

“Fine China,” the first single off X, drops April 1.

On his new album X: “The direction I wanted to go for this album was the same base I went for the first album. I had a humble mindstate of going in the studio with any producer, any writer, and trying to make a great project. I kinda put the Quincy Jones formula on it, put all of the different producers locked into one studio, and just try to make a great project.”

On why he named the album X: “I’ll be 24 when the album comes out, so X is the 24th letter in the alphabet. It also means the roman numeral for X. I’ve been doing this for 10 years now. My birthday is 5/5/89, five and five is 10.”

On working with Jennifer Lopez: “We actually are collaborating. I’m trying to get her on my album, I have a couple songs that would be incredible for her to feature on. But as for now, I’m just in the studio writing for her album and collaborating on new stuff and trying to give her some party music and fun stuff.”

On winning back fans: “People are entitled to their opinions. I can’t go around blaming. It’s all about my responsibility and me growing up as a man. So I think now that I’m becoming older, and trying to mature in this life under the public eye at all times, I have to focus on doing the right thing and being more of a humble individual.”

On his past mistakes: “I could put that on my age but that would just be making an excuse. I think for me that at age 18, 19 I was capable of writing and producing songs, so I’m also capable of making the right choices. So I think it’s about a learning process now. Being at that young age I can tell you I was arrogant and definitely hotheaded. Everybody has a temper, but for me it was not knowing how to control it when I thought I had the world in my hands.”

On his relationship with Rihanna: “I just tried my best to be the best man I could be over the years and just show her how remorseful and sorry I was for the incident and that time was probably the worst part of my life and being that she has and she’s a wonderful person I’m eternally grateful and thankful.”

On his fight with a valet over $10: “By all means, I’m a great tipper. Ten dollars is not a problem…[it] was five dollar parking at the place…but before we went in, I gave the man $100 dollars. We had two cars. It’s five dollar parking. Okay, do the math. So when we came out he was like, ‘You know what? We need $20 for each car.’ And I said, ‘Sir, I just gave you $100.’ So he was like, ‘No, no we need $10.’ So he was just going around trying to see if he could get more money and I was like, ‘no,’ so by that time it was a situation.”

On Instagram and Twitter: “Both [are a blessing and a curse]…for me now I’m not as hands on as I used to be. I totally deleted my Instagram and I get on Twitter every now and then to touch base with my fans because I love my fans. But sometimes when you’re a young kid and you have impulsive techniques you kind of get like, ‘Arghhh! I can’t stand you.’ People love [Twitter wars], they eat it up, so I’d rather not feed them that.”

Are Rihanna and Chris Brown dating again or are they just friends? Whatever their relationship may be, it’s “Nobody’s Business.” The former couple reunites to duet about their headline-making romance on the highly-anticipated record off RiRi’s seventh album Unapologetic, due November 19.

“You’ll always be my boy/ I’ll always be your girl/ It ain’t nobody’s business, but mine and my baby,” sings the pop diva on the upbeat track, which samples Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel” and was produced by The-Dream and Los da Mystro.

“‘Nobody’s Business’ is basically the way I look at everything regarding my personal life,” Rihanna told Andy Cohen on “Facebook Live.” “When it gets to my music and stuff like that, I’ll give and I’ll give and I’ll give, and I just feel like I need to keep a little bit for me that I get to the side.”

During his visit to “Big Boy’s Neighborhood,” Breezy added, “This record was a statement… Us as friends, as human beings, as entertainers, everything we do isn’t everybody’s business. At the end of the day, we gon’ show ya’ll how dope it is and show ya’ll how epic our artistry is.”
