Rihanna For Vogue, November 2012

Who do you think Rihanna talks about in the latest issue of Vogue? Could it possibly be Chris Brown? If you guessed that, you are right but do not deserve a reward of any kind because it’s the most obvious answer ever.

Shot by Annie Leibovitz, who also photographed her first cover in April 2011, Rihanna says the world is “obsessed” with her and Brown.

“To the world, I feel like there’s no closure. There’s some obsession that’s continued even throughout when we weren’t friends or couldn’t be friends at all. Hated each other. The world hasn’t let go. They haven’t seen any progress in our friendship, because they don’t see anything really.”

“I don’t know if people will stop soon, but I feel like as soon as they have closure to it, they will. But they’re not on the inside. They can’t see what I see, unless they’re sitting in my point of view. I guess I’ll learn to accept that.” 

And, on how she now feels in comparison to how she felt in 2011, the woman on the verge of releasing her seventh album, Unapologeticfeels “fearless,” “more comfortable” and “free-er.”
“I’ve changed and grew up. I just started to embrace that — and I started to infuse that in my fashion, as well as my music.”
Like she’s the busiest girl in the world: “I never know what day it is, never, ever, ever.”
On the media saying she snorted coke at Coachella: “They knew it was marijuana. It was completely clear to them. I just thought it was uncalled for. I don’t do cocaine. I don’t like being associated with anything that’s untrue.”
The “Birthday Cake” Remix with Chris Brown: “I didn’t think it could be anything detrimental to my career, I was on a tour bus ride between two cities, listening to my album, thinking, ‘Oooh, maybe I should make this into a duet.’ And I started coming up with a bunch of people, and his name crossed my mind. I thought, We haven’t made a song in so long together . . . it could be a little shocking.”
The Drake/Chris nightclub fight: “I wasn’t even there. It had nothing to do with me.”
Interviewer Jason Gay describes her bedroom: “There’s not a lot of room, so I take a seat on the bed. She looks sleepy. I feel like I should read her Goodnight Moon.”
