Over the weekend, we got a peek of pixie-haired Rihanna heating up the cover of the November issue of US Vogue magazine (Checkout the cover here). Now take a look at the ‘Diamonds‘ songbird’s edgy and moody editorial, taken on location by Annie Leibovitz. Styled by Camilla Nickerson, Rihanna channels a fierce and sexy predator in standout designs by Valentino, Dior, Michael Kors, Rosamosario, Revillon and Marc Jacobs.
Here are some of the highlights from the 24-year-old singer’s interview with the magazine:
On being single and not dating:
“I have not been on a date in forever Like two years. Haven’t gone to the movies, to dinner. Zero. I would love to go on a date, You don’t think that? I’m a woman. A young woman, vibrant, and I love to have fun. And I have too many vaginas around me at this point”.
On the type of guy she wants:
“Seriously, all I want is a guy to take me out and make me laugh for a good hour and take my ass back home. He doesn’t even have to come up. All I want is a conversation for an hour. No one asks. Trust me on that. I’m waiting for the man who’s ballsy enough to deal with me. I’m going to wait, though. You always find the wrong shit when you go looking”.
On the world’s obsession with her relationship with Chris 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, besides the song”.
On the controversial ‘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”.
