We showed you Rihanna’s VOGUE cover for the November issue of the magazine. Now we’ve got the spread and her interview with the fashion mag.
In this issue, Rihanna chats it up about her romantic life and why she has not been on a real date in a very long time. She also weighs-in on the media’s “obsession” with everything Chris Brown. Check out what she had to say below.
On being single:
“I have not been on a date in forever,” she says. “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.”
On why she hasn’t been dating:
“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 shit when you go looking.”
On her new short hairdo debut at the VMAs:
“Spur of the moment.” She continues, “My hair was supposed to be down to my ass tonight.”
On talking about Chris Brown in the media:
“To the world, I feel like there’s no closure,” she says. “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.”
“I don’t know if people will stop soon, but I feel like as soon as they have closure to it, they will.” She doesn’t expect she will win everyone’s understanding. “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.”
