Warning: This post was produced while listening to Rihanna’s “Birthday Cake” remix on repeat — “and it’s not even my birthday”!
So, Rihanna. What’s up with her?
Last we checked, she was raising her hand to play the lead role in a Whitney Houston biopic, tweeting potentially offensive digs at her ex-boyf’s new girl, and, um, starring in Peter Berg’s Battleship. (You know you’ve got a crazy lifestyle when showing up in an multimillion-dollar boardgame-turned-movie is the least interesting thing you’ve got going on.)
And now the “We Found Love” singer has something new for us: an Elle cover (out April 17) and her thoughts on men, babies, and man-baby Chris Brown.
Here are Rihanna’s comments on her very public travails with her famously felonious ex: “It gave me guns. I was like, well, f—. 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.”
And on the negative reaction surrounding their making of the up: “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.”
She also addressed the possibility of producing little RiRis: “It could be tomorrow. It could be 20 years from now. I just feel like when the time is right, God will send me a little angel. But first, of course, I have to find a man. I mean, there’s a very important missing piece to the puzzle here!”
And how a good man is hard to find: “I feel like it’s hard for everybody! I don’t think it has anything to do with being famous. There’s just a major drought out there.”
Clearly, nobody’s told Rihanna about Ryan Gosling yet.
