The beautiful Rihanna covers the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar. As always her interviews reveal a more sensitive and real side of who she is. This time she opens up a bit more on falling in love, losing it all and what makes her so rebellious. She also speaks on the controversial collaboration with ex Chris Brown, and being thin. Here’s what RiRi had to say.
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 The Chris Brown “Birthday Cake” Remix Collaboration
“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 Being Afraid To Love 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 Thin
“I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life!” she laughs. “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.”
