Rihanna is Vogue-ing for the second time in her career, officially landing the cover for the U.S. edition of the iconic fashion magazine. “Mama I made it! Here’s #2″ she tweeted over the weekend as she posted a pic of the sultry cover. Taken by legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz, the shot features Riri staring down the camera in a smokin’ hot red dress in what appears to be the middle of a wheat field. The same one from the “We Found Love” vid, maybe?
The issue features an in-depth profile of the 24-year-old mega star, where she weighs in on her romantic life. Or, more appropriately, lack thereof. She claims to have not been on a date for over two years! And it’s definitely not by her choice. “I would love to go on a date,” she says. “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.” She blames her superstar status on the lack of gentleman callers. “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.”
She dismissed rumors of a fling with Robert Pattinson as “the most bulls– ever,” and does her best to downplay her rekindled relationship with Chris Brown. “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.” She explained that the musical reunion with Brown on the track “Birthday Cake (Remix)” carried a lot less subtext than most people thought. “I was on a tour bus ride between two cities, listening to my album, thinking, Oooh, maybe I should make this into a duet. And I started coming up with a bunch of people, and his name crossed my mind. I thought, We haven’t made a song in so long together . . . it could be a little shocking.”
Hmmm…the restraining order may have explained the lack of duets. Despite their troubled past, Rihanna insists that the world is wrong about Chris Brown. “They’re not on the inside. They can’t see what I see, unless they’re sitting in my point of view.” It’s worth noting that the interview took place during the VMAs, back when Brown was still dating Karrueche Tran. It seems like their relationship has definitely intensified since then. Maybe the two year dating dry-spell is over.
But enough speculation. Let’s talk about something real: Rihanna’s undeniable hotness! Which of her two Vogue covers do you think is the sexiest? Let us know in the poll below!
