A few days ago, we showed you a sneak peek at Rihanna‘s Vogue cover. now we have the official cover, spread photos and interview snippets. In this in=depth interview, RiRi discusses her father’s betrayal, Matt Kemp, the music industry and being a role model.
moving on after Matt Kemp–
“I just kind of shut down from that. I just let it go. I don’t ever want to have to depend on a relationship. I think it’s a really hard thing to find love. It’s beautiful. Nothing can match it. But I want to make sure that I find other things in life that I love besides love.”
her music after the assault-
“It actually gave me a lot of liberation. What I mean is, I was able to tap into the personal part of my music. I started to tell stories through my music that were actually my stories. My album before that, there was still a little bit of protection, there was still an innocence to me. And what that time in my life did was kind of wake people up: it’s not all bed of roses. My life is like yours.”
“It made me look at the world in a much bigger way because my life was suddenly superduper magnified; all eyes were on me. I needed that in my life to know how to say, ‘F—k off.’ To know how to keep my head high even in the worst situations. I keep using the word unapologetic. But there is a freedom that has come with all of that. Where you feel like you don’t have to make an excuse for being yourself.”
her father’s acts of betrayal–
“[The assault incident] was the first time my dad went to the press and just told them a bunch of lies…he never called to find out how I was doing, if I was alive, nothing. He just never called. He went straight to the press and got a check. And now he does it again. Now, I’m like “Whatever, I tried”. (In reference to him selling her childhood photos recently).
It really makes me question what I have become to my father. Like, what do I even mean to him? It’s really strange. That’s the only word I can think of to describe it, because you grow up with your father, you know him, you are a part of him, for goodness’ sakes! And then he does something so bizarre that I can’t begin to wrap my mind around it. You hear the horror stories about people going behind people’s backs and doing strange things, but you always think, ‘Not my family. My father would never do that to me.’”
the pressures of being a role model
“Pop icons nowadays are very fearless, unapologetic, edgy, and it’s a lot for people to swallow sometimes. Because people still think pop star equals role model, but it’s almost impossible to walk that line. I’ve struggled with it and have come to the conclusion that I can live my life for me.”
