Rihanna will appear in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone. In the interview, which took place in her multi-million dollar home in Pacific Palisades in California, the "Diamonds" singer discussed her reconciliation with Chris Brown for the first time since her interview with Oprah Winfrey in August 2012.

Rihanna's relationship with Brown has been under scrutiny ever since they rekindled their romance last fall. The Bajan beauty said she understands why people do not agree with their reconciliation, but she decided to do so because "it was more important for me to be happy."

When asked if she fears that he would ever hit her again after he assaulted her on the eve of the Grammys in 2009, Rihanna said she strongly believes that Brown would never become violent with her again.

"He doesn't have the luxury of f**king up again. That's just not an option," Rihanna told Rolling Stone. She then admitted, "I can't say that nothing else will ever go wrong."

"But I'm pretty solid in the knowing that he's disgusted by that," she added about the topic. "And I wouldn't have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility."

Rihanna explained that their communication is better than ever so they value their relationship even more this time around.

"We don't have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about sh*t. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don't want to lose that."

As for the criticism and the backlash she's received since she got back together with Brown, she said she "wasn't going to let anybody's opinion get in the way" of her decision to reconcile with Brown.

"Even if it's a mistake, it's my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I'd rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it," she said.

She admitted she was angry with Brown for a long time after the incident and explained why she waited three years to get back together with him.

"I wanted him to know what it felt like to lose me. To feel the consequences of that. So when that (stuff) came back it hit me like a ton of bricks. Like, God, you've got to be kidding right now. But I got real with myself, and I just couldn't bury the way I felt."

Rihanna is currently gearing up for her upcoming "Diamonds" tour. She will perform around the country and in Europe beginning March 8.

Rolling Stone magazine featuring Rihanna on the cover with the full interview will arrive on newsstands on Friday, Jan. 31.
