Rihanna‘s Bazaar cover is like a blast of air conditioning for your eyes, but not like an actual blast of air conditioning for your eyes, because that would probably sting like the devil. In addition to working it out in white silk and gold for the magazine’s photo shoot, the “Where Have You Been All My Life?” singer opens up about her love life. If you couldn’t guess, it’s pretty much exactly what you’d expect from the nation’s most famous domestic abuse survivor…who subsequently had to hear all of us talk about her relationship decisions for the next three years. “I have been conservative in my love life,” RiRi explains. “It’s pretty much nonexistent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just — I don’t let people in.” Aw, this breaks our hearts, girl! Breaks our hearts and is completely understandable at the same time!
Admits Rihanna in her interview, “When I was in love, I fell so hard. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.” That is totally, profoundly, utterly understandable, girl. So maybe in the future…if you could just not….hang out or collaborate with the person who made you feel that way? Does that make sense? Did we mention how insanely hot you look in white? We love you?
