Rihanna Rings Elle's Bell

Slowly, but surely, Rihanna is creeping her way back into the limelight. On the cover of the July cover of one of the biggest fashion magazines in the industry, Elle, we'll have something else to look forward to. From her recently hair change to her "Rockstar 101" video, we can only wonder what is next for the superstar. And that would be her "Last Girl On Earth" tour with special guest, Ke$ha. In her interview, Rihanna talks fashion, relationships, and of course...Chris. Here's a snippet of the interview:

On her new beau, Matt Kemp: “I have a boyfriend. I’m so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it’s so easy. I have such a chaotic life, but at the end of the day, that is just my peace. It keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family.”

On designers she admires: “It’s clear there are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry. One of the things I respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with me. I’m a black girl on a fashion spread for Gucci—that was a big deal. I respect designers who aren’t afraid to go outside the box. I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited. I thought, Okay, I can work that, for sure.”

On the past year: “A year ago, I was very confused. Because [Chris Brown] was my best friend. All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives—not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him—it was either-or. I just didn’t want to feel the pain, the confusion.”

On turning her dream of popstardom into reality: “If I were in Barbados still, I would be dreaming about this. I asked for it, and I love it, so why am I complaining? My first day on tour, I remember saying ‘I’m so tired—this is so much.’ Then I thought, What the fuck? You asked for this—you prayed to God to tour like Madonna.”

You can find the July issue of Elle on newsstands Tuesday, June 15th. Also, check out footage from the behind-the-scences photoshoot with photographer, Tom Munro. Happy watching!
