Rihanna is featured in the latest issue of Elle Magazine in a Cuba-inspired shoot rocking her best hair ever (edgy, layered blond with black roots) and talking a little about the man she refuses to quit.
She says that the public knowing her business during the Chris Brown incident of 2009 was humbling, hinting that she’s going to stay in contact no matter what:
“I was like, well, fuck. They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it…Now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”
“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person.”
On relationships: “My job seems to affect every relationship I have or try to have. Even with people I think should get it, you know? That seems to be a big factor; it’s always an issue. But I just need to find the person who balances me out.”
On having kids: “It could be tomorrow. It could be 20 years from now. I just feel like when the time is right, God will send me a little angel. But first, of course, I have to find a man. I mean, there’s a very important missing piece to the puzzle here!”
On Katy Perry: “She’s gorgeous, charming, and so unedited it’s scary. That’s what intrigued me most when I first met her: She said it like she saw it. I trust people like that. I feel safe around people who tell me the fucked-up shit, because I know they’ll always tell me the truth.”
