Rihanna is featured on yet another magazine cover. This time around, the “S&M” singer graces the cover of Fabulous magazine – a UK-based magazine which will feature RihRih next month. During the interview, Rihanna touched on relationships, her red hair being a sex symbol and much more. One topic Rihanna was not open to dicussing was Chris Brown. Check out some interview snippets below.
being hailed a ex symbol:
Every time I hear that it’s definitely flattering, but also uncomfortable. That’s not a priority on my list – being a sex symbol or being overly sexy. I’m just a normal woman. I don’t really focus on being a sex symbol.
other artists in the industry she’s competing with:
I never focus on who or what is at the top, because when people become better at what they do individually, it’s noticed. And that’s all I want to be: an artist who was known for growing constantly and becoming bigger and better.
It’s not about who’s better between Rihanna, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. I’m more in competition with myself. I always challenge myself to do better next time. It doesn’t matter who’s at the top as long as I’m getting closer to that point every time. That’s all I care about.
why she chose to dye her hair red:
I think I was ready for something new and loud and expressive. It’s really adventurous – I wanted something that was fun, you know. I didn’t want a normal hair colour. I’d had blonde and it was so boring. Black is still my favourite, but I was looking for a colour that was edgy. I guess it was just the place I was in at that time. I felt like being spontaneous, and I also wanted to go for something extreme. I couldn’t do green or purple or pink, so red was like the fine line between normal and extreme!
moving on and forward with her life:
I wanted people to move on from it, [because] the last big thing they know about me is that night. And I don’t want that to be what people define me as.
When asked about Brown, Rihanna initially said: “Excuse me?”
The interviewer didn’t get the hint and asked Rihanna about him again and this time Rihanna said a little bit more: “Next. You obviously want to talk about Chris Brown, I don’t.”
Let’s just say the interviewer got the point after that.
