Rihanna, the 25-year-old Barbadian pop star, has posted subliminal messages to unnamed ex-boyfriends on Instagram in the past and now the singer is opening up about her actions.
While some fans automatically assumed that Rihanna was speaking negatively about her on-and-off again boyfriend and singer Chris Brown, the singer has another explanation for her previous posts about an "ex."
"Oh my God. That would be brilliant. But to me, it's not even that serious," she told Glamour magazine recently. "It's just a photo album."
While the world has watched Rihanna's relationship with 24-year-old Brown, the former did not name the latter when speaking out against an ex in her previous Instagram posts.
"I hate when ex's say..'I'm here if you need me.' Where the (expletive) were you when we were together and I needed you," one quotation previously posted on Rihanna's Instagram account reads.
While E! News reported that Brown and Rihanna split in April after attempting to reconcile a rocky relationship that included a past physical abuse at the hands of the former, he explained breaking up with Rihanna earlier this summer.
"[Fans have] seen me on and off again with different girls, you know who they are, but right now, as a 24-year-old man, I just choose to be single," Brown told HollywoodLife.com previously.
Earlier this year, Brown spoke about Rihanna on Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie Show. Although the singer-songwriter did not detail why the pair had split, he did let it be known that he planned to make other things in his life a priority.
"Imma do it solo," Brown told The Kyle and Jackie Show. "I mean, at the end of the day, shorty doing her own thang, she on the road. It's always gonna be love. I'm a grown man, just gotta fast forward."
While Brown made it clear that he still had love for Rihanna, he revealed that he was going to make himself a priority.
"I'm always gonna love that person. I can't be focused on wife-ing someone that young," Brown told the radio show. "I need to be the best Chris Brown I can be."
