Rihanna gets seriously sexy in the new issue of Rolling Stone -- where she opens up about why she decided to ease up the restraining order she has against Chris Brown.

"That's my decision," she says. "It doesn't mean we're gonna make up, or even talk again. It just means I didn't want to object to the judge."

The singer continues, "We don't have to talk again ever in my life. I just didn't want to make it more difficult for him professionally. What he did to me was a personal thing – it had nothing to do with his career. Saying he has to be a hundred feet away from me, he can't perform at awards shows – that definitely made it difficult for him. That was the only thing it was going to change, so I didn't care. But you can never please people. One minute I'm being too hard, and the next minute I'm a fool because I'm not being hard enough."

Rihanna, who split with Matt Kemp last December, also tells the magazine she's "not dating. I'm not sexing, I'm not even sexting. It's on complete nil."

The issue hits newsstands this Friday. Check out the photos above -- and some behind-the-scenes footage from the photo shoot over at RollingStone.com.
