Rihanna for ELLE Magazine
Ri straps on the Versace and Armani and shoots her critics in the face.
Rihanna featured in the May 2012 issue of ELLE magazine photographed by Tom Munro and styled by Joe Zee.
On her breakup with Chris Brown: “It gave me guns. I was like, well, fuck. They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it. […] Now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”
On the backlash over their reconciliation:
“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, 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.”
Far be it for us to waste time ranting on blogs – by the way, whenever a celeb mentions blogs derisively you can bet it means they read them religiously – but she’s got a point. People need to get over the Chris Brown thing as if she personally betrayed them. If it’s a fucked up life choice on her part, well… she’s got a lot of company among her fellow celebrities. Hell, she’s got a lot of company, period.

Also, she was built for that Versace – and not many ladies on this planet actually are. And that Emporio Armani looks better on her than the model.
