When it comes to Rihanna and magazine cover’s the question is not who she’s covered but who hasn’t she covered.
The 24 year-old’s most recent cover is Harper’s Bazaar’s August 2012 issue. She poses in a Tom Ford dress on the cover while appearing in a 7 page spread wearing Alexander Wang, Balmain, and Emporio Armani- all styled by Mel Ottenberg.
She also opens up about how hard it is for her to fall in love again while dishing about how her first time falling in love turned to pain.
Check out the excerpts and full spread below:
On her collabo with Chris Brown
The fans could have said, ‘We don’t want anything to do with it’. I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn’t see it that way because I’m in a different place.
On whether she can open up in relationships again
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.
On being rebellious
[I'm] rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair. 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.
On losing weight and her booty
I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life! 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.”
