Rihanna and Chris Brown will both be in the same place at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 6, reports Hollywood Life. They would be interested to present an award together, besides working together on the remix of Rihanna‘s song 'Birthday Cake', they have stayed away from each other in a professional setting.
Source on whether Rihanna would be more than willing to stand on stage next to Chris: 'That’s obvious. Hell yeah, she would. [There isn't anything] she wouldn’t do for that [him]. She’d do just about anything for him.' Friend of Chris: 'Why wouldn’t he? It would be the first time in a long.. time that he would be on stage with his boo.'
Unfortunately, Rihanna is still in love with the man who brutally beat her just a few years ago, Chris Brown. She revealed to OPRAH: 'We've been working on our friendship again. Now we're very, very close friends. We've built a trust again and that's it. We love each other and we probably always will. That's not anything we're going to try to change. That's not something you can shut off if you've ever been in love.'
Will they get back together soon? 'No. He's in a relationship of his own. I'm single, but we have maintained a very close friendship ever since the restraining order has been dropped. We've just worked on it little by little and it has not been easy. It's not easy.'
On seeing Chris now: 'It's awkward, because I still love him. My stomach drops and I have to maintain this poker face and not let it get to the outer part of me. I have to maintain that and suppress it, but interpret it and understand it and understand that it's not going to go away. That is peaceful. When you don't understand those feelings, you can make a lot of mistakes.'
Do you still love Chris? 'Absolutely, I think he was the love of my life. He was the first love and I see that he loved me the same way. We were very young and very spontaneous. We ran free. We ran wild. We were falling in love and going at a really rapid pace and we forgot about ourselves as individuals.. I truly love him. The main thing for me is that he is at peace. You know, I'm not at peace if he's a little unhappy or if he's still lonely. I care. It actually matters that he finds that peace.'
On forgiving him: 'I thought I hated Chris and I realized it was love that wash tarnished. It looked like hate, because it was ugly, angry and inflamed. It was tainted. And I realize that what it was, I had to forgive him, because I cared about him still. The minute I let go of that, I started living again.'
Rihanna: 'I lost my best friend.. everything I knew switched, switched in a night. And I couldn't control that. It's not easy to interpret on camera, not with the world watching. I felt like the only person they hate right now is him. It was a weird, confusing space to be in.
Because as angry as I was, as angry and hurt and betrayed. I just felt like he made that mistake because he needed help. nd who's going to help him? Nobody's going to say he needs help, everybody's going to say he's a monster, without looking at the source. And I was more concerned about him.'

'Chris is staying on the yacht next to Rihanna's. He's got rappers Swizz Beatz and Ludacris with him and they've decided to film a music video too. It was a last-minute trip, but Chris wanted to see Rihanna. They have this weird addiction to each other and can't seem to stay away.
She was really happy when he arrived. She spent all evening getting ready to see him. They waited till night so no one saw them. She went to his yacht, which they moved to a secluded bay. They've been through a lot, but still have strong feelings for each other.'
Chris Brown brutally beat his ex-girlfriend just three years, but X-Factor UK judge Cheryl Cole told In:Demand With Alex that he should be forgiven: 'I think it's really kind of Rihanna [to forgive Brown]. She's come out and publicly forgiven him, really. I think it's about time we all [forgave Brown], if I'm completely honest, if you want my opinion .I think it's time we all moved on. That guy is talented as hell.'
Rihanna recently stopped following him on Twitter, but they have been seeing each other the past year, and in February they released two new songs they recorded together. Chris was also recently accused of lip syncing at the Billboard Music Awards. Do YOU think it's time for Chris to be forgiven for bashing his woman in the face over and over again?
