Rihanna opens up in the new issue of Elle Magazine, talking about her new beau and her new life after Chris Brown...

"I'm so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it's so easy," Ri says of her relationship with Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp. "I have such a chaotic life," she explains, but "it keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family."

The singer also talks about her past with Chris Brown, as well as the incident that happened February 2009:

    "A year ago, I was very confused. Because he was my best friend. All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives - not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him - it was either-or. I just didn't want to feel the pain, the confusion."

Kudos to Rihanna for handling herself with grace and dignity during that whole ordeal.
