Rihanna Covers May Issue Of Elle, Says “I Don’t Have Anything To Hide”
It doesn’t take a genius to figure that RihRih loves living dangerously But now her management is worried she’ll do something rash — like record an album with Chris Brown:
Rihanna is on a rebellious streak and has warned her management team she won’t be kept apart from ex Chris Brown or be held back by their rules.
Management firm Roc Nation, owned by Jay-Z, advised the pop superstar to stay far from Brown, but sources tell us she’s defied their orders, after putting Brown’s voice on her suggestive song “Birthday Cake,” then tweeting about Brown and his girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
“Her management banned her from reuniting with Chris, but she said she’ll do whatever the hell she wants to,” said a source, adding, “Rihanna is rebelling. She says they have been working her too hard and she wants some time to herself. They fear she’ll secretly record an album with Brown, just to defy them.”
But another source said: “Rihanna never takes time off. She’s got tons of work lined up, including movie projects.”
Recording an album seems a bit extreme, Karrueche definitely won’t like that either — but we don’t think it really makes sense. But at the end of the day we wonder if she really even likes Chris like that or if it’s all just for the thrill of doing what she’s not supposed to do.
In the upcoming May issue of ELLE Magazine, RihRih’s cover story is full of quotes about how much she loves doing what she wants to do and getting the biggest possible thrill out of life:
In Elle’s May cover story, Rihanna says of any backlash over a re-association with Brown: “People end up wasting their time on the blogs ranting away, and that’s all right . . . Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”
She says following the fallout from Brown assaulting her, she was given an opportunity to express herself more openly: “That was my opening . . . one less skeleton in the closet, one less burden, one less secret; now you know that, so you can say what you want . . . I don’t have anything to hide.”
Rihanna also talks about the thrill of risk-taking, which she did by swimming with sharks (literally) in Hawaii for her film debut “Battleship.” “When you know you like a guy, or when you’ve been in love . . . That’s the same feeling you have swimming with sharks,” she tells Elle. “That’s the same feeling you have when doing anything daring, risky, spontaneous, or unpredictable. I think having those butterflies is the closest thing to being in love . . . And when you play it safe, you don’t feel anything at all.”
Well damn… Sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. Do you think RihRih will end up hurting herself because of her thrill-seeking ways.
And doesn’t all that “I don’t have anything to hide” talk sound like Ashton may have been right about Rihanna outing their affair?
