All On The Cover: Rihanna Covers Marie Claire UK

Rihanna covers the December 2010 Issue of Marie Claire UK, and if I must say so myself, she looks stunning. In her interview she talks about when she realized it was really over between Chris Brown and herself. She also talks about the new man in her life, Matt Kemp and how she can never seems to stop smiling when she’s with him.

EXCLUSIVE Marie Claire UK Interview: Rihanna on surviving the bad times and how she is happier and stronger than ever

She’s the toast of the music industry and the hottest talent around. Introducing our stunning December cover star, Rihanna. We caught up with the “Rude Boy” superstar to talk about surviving the bad times, learning to love her imperfections, and how she is happier and stronger than ever.

And as she sparkles for the cameras, debuting new fiery red hair (‘she has been dying to go red for years,’ says make-up artist Karen Darnell) you’d certainly never guess it has been such a hard year for Rihanna.

On her on her much publicised romance with Chris Brown.

‘Eventually, I remember waking up one day and I knew I was over it.’

‘One day. I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it.’

But after coming out of it the other side, the songstress admits she’s a different person now.

On almost losing herself and how she bounced back

‘I was very lost. I have to say I felt really confused,’ she says, her eyes welling up.‘I hate talking about it but it was really crazy because I felt so out of touch with myself and when that happens… It’s scary because nothing you say or do feels like it’s you.

‘You just lose touch of everything that you love and everything that you would normally do; how you would dress or how you would say something… It just feels like it’s not coming from you. It’s just this one empty vase. I felt like an empty vessel.’

On recording with Eminem and how she related it to her own personal life

With all that she’s been through, some critics have questioned her recent appearance on the Eminem single, ‘Love The Way You Lie’ and how, in their view, it glamorises domestic violence. Rihanna has no regrets.

‘He [Eminem] confronted himself on it. He basically gives insight into what goes on in the mind of a couple in a domestically violent relationship. I love that in every verse it just gets to that point where she wants to leave, she wants to leave, she leaves, she leaves, she leaves… but then the hook always comes back’

Did she relate to that on a personal level? ‘Absolutely. Absolutely! Every word in that song is true. It would take somebody who’s been on the inside to understand how magical those lyrics are.

‘Everybody loves the song but the lyrics can never hit home until you’ve seen it, witnessed it, in your home or experienced it yourself.’

On her relationship with Matt Kemp

Despite it all, the drama and the tears, Rihanna is relieved to have finally come out the other side, adding

‘I’m just… I feel like… I smile for real this time.’

I’m so happy for Rihanna. She’s a real inspiration to a lot of young girls. I’m glad she finally set the record straight as to how she felt when she was going through a rough path in the past.

The party, which was going to be a surprise until she caught on, will be a low-key night with “close friends, Jamaican food, a photo booth, dancing and cake.”

Just In: Matt Kemp ‘Was Never Physically Abusive’ To Ex-Girlfriend

Rihanna & Matt Kemp Hang Out

The last thing Rihanna needs is to end up with another abusive man and reports of a restraining order against her new beau Matt Kemp by an ex-girlfriend, had people worried she was heading into the wrong direction.

According to Pop On The Pop we don’t need to worry about her new relationship, Matt’s agent Dave Stewart says he was never abusive to Felisha Terrell.

“Matt dated Felisha about two years ago and decided to end their relationship. She chose to file a complaint and shortly thereafter, on her own accord, decided to drop it based on the fact that the statements made within were false. She has very recently said that she has no issue whatsoever with Matt and that she and Matt consider this to be a non-issue.”

A representative for Felisha also cleared the air by saying during the relationship “there was a restraining order filed by Felisha but it had nothing to do with domestic violence and to be clear Matt was NEVER physically abusive to Felisha, nor did she fear for her life. The restraining order was subsequently vacated.”

“I’m a huge fan of Rihanna, but I’m not going to lie when I heard about her new man “Matt Kemp” possibly being abusive, I was a bit worried for her. She really doesn’t need another one of these episodes in her life. She’s young and deserves to be happy. She’s back and ready to blow us all away with her beautiful music. Keep up the good work and I wish her the best in everything she does.”

Celebrity News: Matt Kemp was abusive in previous relationship?

Rihanna May Be Dating Another Violent Abuser…

Rihanna has been dating LA Dodgers player Matt Kemp for around one month. The couple have been playing grab-ass on rented yatchs, and playing coy with the media. According to new reports, Kemp may have just as nasty a temper as Chris Brown.

From Yahoo News (via Celeb Slam): Rihanna, 21, is currently dating LA Dodgers star Matt Kemp, and an ex-girlfriend of his, actress Felisha Terrell, 30, has revealed his violent past and claims that she took a restraining order out against him in June 2008.

“He is violent and I am afraid. He repeatedly made me scared and gets in my face. He is threatening to take all the items I purchased and try to destroy my property,” the Mirror quoted her as saying. “He brings his friends driving up and down the street to try and intimidate me. I am very fearful. He has other people calling me and stalking me.”

Celebrity Couples: Rihanna and Matt Kemp

[Rihanna joins Matt Kemp for a game]

Less than a year ago, Rihanna‘s life was turned upside down after she was assaulted by former boyfriend Chris Brown. Now the singer seems to be putting the traumatic past behind her.

On Saturday, she was spotted at the LA Clippers vs Cleveland-Cavaliers game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with her new pal, Dodgers star Matt Kemp, wearing her hair styled in angelic golden ringlets. The pop star, who will celebrate her 22nd birthday next month, appears to have kept her famous graduated bob hairstyle, adding playful curls for her day at the game.

In addition to the new style, photographers captured the singer with a perpetual and very sincere-looking grin on her face. Last week, Rihanna opened up to W magazine about coming out of the fog of last winter: “At first I completely shut down. But now I feel like this happened to me so I could be a voice for young girls who are going through what I went through and dont know how to talk about it.”

She also revealed a desire to focus on her budding acting career, briefly cut short by all the media attention surrounding her private life last year. As everyone who watched her fall appearance on “SNL” can attest, Rihanna has comedic acting skills that rival her talent as a singer.

Take a closer look at the new style below….
