Burton alleges that she jokingly said she wanted to meet the artist, and a friend obliged and introduced both women. In the author's 'tell-all' book, she says that she wasn't sure that "Rihanna" was even interested in women.
An excerpt from the book describes her relationship with the artist, perhaps during her 'Rated R'-blonde locks in 2009 and the same year of the Chris Brown debacle:
"I wasn't over my ex, but talking to her helped. She was beautiful. She wore her hair short with blonde highlights, and her style was creative. I wasn't sure I could take her serious, so I took it one day at a time. We instantly had a connection. I could listen to her for hours, discuss media, music and fashion. She would open up to me ... converse with her manager in front of me, jumping on conference calls about her new project that involved her doing a soundtrack for a feature film."
