HW loves Rihanna, we thought you’d love to see her on the new cover of Vogue as they channels the sexy swagger of Lena Horne and the sophisticated flavor of Anika Noni Rose…… Yes, Riri does rehash the Chris Brown situation, saying it gave her music an edge:
“It actually gave me a lot of liberation. What I mean is, I was able to tap into the personal part of my music. I started to tell stories through my music that were actually my stories.”
“My album before that, there was still a little bit of protection, there was still an innocence to me. And what that time in my life did was kind of wake people up – it’s not all a bed of roses. My life is like yours.”
“It made me look at the world in a much bigger way because my life was suddenly superduper magnified; all eyes were on me. I needed that in my life to know how to say, ‘F**k off!’ To know how to keep my head high even in the worst of situations. I keep using the word unapologetic, but there’s a freedom that has come with all of that. Where you feel like you don’t have to make an excuse for being yourself.“
At the sametime we like some of the photo from the cover story (except for the awkward cover photo). In other Riri news, the singer has been rumored to be on a list of singers and actresses for ‘The Bodyguard’ remake (hopefully not with Kevin “Dances with Wolves” Costner).
