Months after the infamous 2009 violent altercation with her boyfriend Chris Brown, Rihanna tattooed a gun on the right side of her torso. In a recent interview with Elle UK, the singer revealed the meaning behind the tattoo as well as her future goals.

When asked about the meaning behind the gun tattoo, the singer said “Everybody wanted to know what was happening in my life. Is she a drug addict? No. Is she an alcoholic? No. Is she a victim? No. That’s why I got the gun. It was a symbol of strength. I’ll never be a victim.” She also told the magazine that she feels like this period of her life is a “fresh start” with Chris Brown.

The singer is also thinking about tapping into her maternal instincts in years to come. In five years, she sees herself becoming a mother. “I will probably have a kid,” she said. “Right now, that’s just what we want, a great friendship, that’s unbreakable,” she says of she and Chris Brown’s relationship. “Now that we’re adults we can do this right. We got a fresh start and we’re thankful for that.”

As Rihanna celebrated her 25th birthday last week, she and Chris Brown were seen spending quality time together along the Hawaiian beach. Rihanna shared her birthday bash experience with the world via Instagram and Twitter — posting pictures of her birthday cake, she and Chris Brown, and many other things. Chris Brown, 23, will be celebrating his 24th  birthday in May.

What do you think Rihanna meant when she said she’ll never be a victim?
