Rihanna covers Vogue Magazine, talks about Chris Brown: “They can’t see what I see, unless they’re sitting in my point of view.”

Rihanna covers the November issue of Vogue Magazine, and inside the mag, the singer promotes her new album, ‘Unapologetic’. The new album is Rihanna’s sixth album, in seven years.

Annie Leibovitz photographed Rihanna for the magazine, and the pictures are beautiful!

The interview was conducted on the evening of the MTV Video Music Awards, shortly after Rihanna debuted her newly cropped hairdo. Rihanna talks about Chris Brown quite a bit, and it’s obvious that at the time the two were working towards a reconciliation. The two are now officially together again.

Here are some excerpts from the interview:

On her new hair: “Spur of the moment. My hair was supposed to be down to my ass tonight.”

On the Robert Pattinson texting rumors: “The most bullsh-t ever.”

On time and space: Rihanna says she found herself one morning in a hotel room in Tokyo and had no idea where she was. “Jen, my assistant, was waking me up, and I was like, ‘Whose room am I in? Why am I in this room?’ I never know what day it is. Never, ever, ever.” What day is today? Rihanna pauses. Her lips curl, and she begins to make an “S” sound. “Ooh, I went to say Saturday.” She laughs and corrects herself. “It’s Wednesday. Wednesday.”

She [was] single: “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,” she says. “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. 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 sh-t when you go looking.”

She never wanted to tweet: “I just thought, Who cares? Do I say, ‘Getting in thecar. Getting on the plane’? I was so distraught by the whole idea.”

Jay-Z on Rihanna’s tweeting: “It’s the rawest form of freedom of expression, right? She has the right to express herself, and I know she’s being playful. I know when she’s being serious and when she’s just having fun. What were you doing when you were 24? I mean, you’ve got to have fun. She’s having fun. She’s having so much fun.”

Will she talk about Chris Brown forever? “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.”

The “Birthday Cake remix was her idea: “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. So now it’s a bit of a fascination, I guess. 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.”

Riding on her private jet: “Every time we come on one of these things, it’s unreal. I’m in a positive space, but I do have my days. Everybody has their days.”

FIRST LOOK: Are you ready for Nude by Rihanna?

Rihanna just posted this message on her Facebook page: “Are you ready for Nude by Rihanna? Photographer, Tony Duran photographed Rihanna for the sexy and playful Nude by Rihanna campaign. Rihanna, dressed in nude lingerie while wrapped in a sheer sheath, blasted her music and kept reapplying Nude.”

This doesn’t look like her at all!?

Nudity is all the rage when it comes to pop stars’ fragrance ads, with Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga both showing skin recently. Rihanna is the latest lady to show off her body for her appropriately-titled Nude perfume, in a sexy advertisement she debuted on Twitter over the weekend.

The “Diamonds” singer rocks blonde, old Hollywood waves and nude lace lingerie in the image. When she released the photo, Rih-Rih tweeted, “Here is my new ad for a brand new fragrance #NUDE! Make sure you smell sexy, especially naked, this fall!”

Rihanna has already released two successful fragrances, Reb’l Fleur and Rebelle, the second of which reportedly became the fastest-selling celebrity perfume in the U.K.

PIC: Rihanna gets a huge tattoo in honor of her late grandmother

Rihanna has  a huge new tattoo!

The singer, 24, got a new tattoo over the weekend in honor of her beloved grandmother Dolly, who passed away in June.

Rihanna shared a topless photo of her new tattoo, a feathererd Egyptian goddess named Isis, inked on the top of her ribcage. “Goddess Isis – Complete Woman” Rihanna tweeted. “Model for future generations – #GRANGRANDOLLY – always in and on my heart #1love.”

In London on Sunday, she wowed tens of thousands of fans as she sang “Princess of China” with Coldplay in a seriously steamy performance with frontman (and Gwyneth Paltrow’s husband) Chris Martin. At the VMAs in Los Angeles three days earlier, it was her off-stage behavior that caused the most comment: Winning the Video of the Year award for “We Found Love,” she hugged and kissed — on the lips — her abusive ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

The chart-topper may or may not have been alluding to her former beau, 23, and their surprising VMAs PDA via Twitter on Saturday with a series of messages. “Heartbreak . . .” she wrote. “I was his Marilyn Monroe . . . A James Dean on the low. What’s love without tragedy?”

What do you think about her new tattoo? I kind of love it. I’ve been dyyyyyyyyyying for a new tattoo lately. Trouble is, I can’t think of anything I want. I would love to come up with something of meaning, but I’m at a loss. Probably means I won’t actually get a new tattoo, but I’ve been feeling the urge lately. Wish there was something meaningful to me that would translate well into a tattoo. I’m not a huge fan of initials – or birth signs – or whatever. I’d love to get something cool, but coming up with the right thing is tricky!

What are your tattoos? What’s the meaning behind them?


PIC: Rihanna gets a new tattoo – her 16th!

Rihanna has gotten another tattoo, her 16th! The singer posted a picture of her new ink, a falcon on her ankle, on her Instagram page on Saturday. She wrote ”Falcon: a light that shines in the darkness! Never close their eyes during sleep.”

The tattoo was done by her favorite artist, Bang Bang, in NYC.

“[She decided to get it] the night of, but has been thinking about it for years,” Bang Bang, who adds that this tattoo covers up one of her previous tattoos, making it No. 16, tells Us Weekly. “It’s the first tattoo she wanted as a teen. She wanted it across her back back then.”

The Manhattan-based tattoo artist adds that the 24-year-old “Where Have You Been” singer always knows the next step in her body art lineup. “We always do that part together,” Bang Bang tells Us. “We must have gone over hundreds of tattoo ideas together over the years.”

The Barbados beauty’s decision for new ink comes almost 48 hours after her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown and Drake, along with their posses, got into a serious brawl at a Manhattan nightclub early Thursday morning.

Rihanna “got text messages from everybody telling her what happened right after it went down,” a source explained to Us. “She just laughed. She’s spoken to both of them and just thinks it’s crazy. She’s glad she wasn’t there though!”

Meanwhile an observer tells Us of the scuffle, “Chris and Drake never got in each other’s faces. “It was entourage versus entourage, never Drake versus Chris.” (Eva Longoria’s ex-husband, Tony Parker, who was partying with Brown that night, suffered a scratched retina from the brawl.)
