Stop us if you've heard this one before — Rihanna is on a magazine cover!
The Bajan performer who seems to be everywhere these days, covers the August issue of Harper's Bazaar, and wows with snakeskin boots and a form fitting gold jumpsuit.
Ri is always pretty open and straightforward in interviews. Sometimes that surfaces as snarkiness, but rather than revert to mocking, the "Where Have You Been" singer got personal with the fashion magazine.
"[I'm] rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair," she told the magazine, adding, "I have been conservative in my love life… it’s pretty much nonexistent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just — I don’t let people in."
Rihanna dated Chris Brown until the two got into a violent physical scuffle the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards. The altercation led to a felony assault charge for Brown and a painful, very public break-up for the pair.
Rihanna explained, "When I was in love, I fell so hard. 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."
Those still hankering to ask Rihanna out may want to make a note of her renewed interest in eating and plumping up her posterior.
"I don't know if there's something going on with my body right now, but I'm eating everything in life!" she said. "I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it's not living up to its full potential right now."
