Rihanna graces the cover of Elle, which hits newstands on June 15th. After being pictured numerous times with her boy toy and denying their status, Rihanna finally admits that she has a boyfriend. She also speaks on black women being represented in fashion and what went on the night that Chris Brown felt the need to use her face as a punching bag.
Flip the Lid for a Peek
Relationship Status: “I have a boyfriend. I’m so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it’s so easy. I have such a chaotic life, but at the end of the day, that is just my peace. It keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family.”
Fashion: “It’s clear there are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry. One of the things I respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with me. I’m a black girl on a fashion spread for Gucci—that was a big deal. I respect designers who aren’t afraid to go outside the box. I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited. I thought, Okay, I can work that, for sure.”
What Happened: “A year ago, I was very confused. Because he was my best friend. All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives—not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him—it was either-or. I just didn’t want to feel the pain, the confusion.”
It is going to take a miracle for Chris Brown to comeback from that whole situation. Chris’ project needs some major guidance, we might have to throw his career under of the category… “Jesus Take the Wheel”!!!
On another note, it’s good to see Rihanna is all smiles and back to her normal self. Wonder what’s in store for Rihanna and Matt once baseball season is over???
