Rihanna Covers ‘ELLE’ Magazine, Says Chris Brown Incident Was Liberating


Rihanna is a constant fixture of today’s pop culture, and she’s adding another magazine cover to her list of already-did-that’s. For ELLE mag’s 2012 May issue, they serve up a blonde-haired Rih Rih in an embellished, pale yellow bandeau top, jacket and skirt. Whatever fashion sense of the past that she’s channeling is fierce. Disagree if you must, but we’re loving it!

In the interview, Rihanna spills on becoming liberated, her current single status and why she’s going to do what she wants to do.

On her breakup with Chris Brown: “It gave me guns. I was like, well, fuck. 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.”

The issue hits newsstands on April 17. See more pics below…
