Why is Rihanna so cautious to fall in love? She explicitly alludes to a notorious relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown: "When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I'd feel that pain in my life. I'm afraid of feeling that again
