Rihanna graces the December cover of Glamour…
Singer, Rihanna looks absolutely stunting on the December cover of Glamour magazine. After a year surrounded by controversy, this Barbados born beauty is back on top. In the article, she talks about her start, how it is working with Jay-Z and her incident with Chris Brown.
In the article, Rihanna talks about the photo of her bruised face being leaked after being assaulted by Chris Brown:
“It was humiliating; that is not a photo you would show to anybody. I felt completely taken advantage of. I felt like people were making it into a fun topic on the Internet, and it’s my life. I was disappointed, especially when I found out the photo was [supposedly leaked by] two women.”
It is wonderful to see Rihanna back on her feet after the stressful year she has had. She has been diligently working on a new album which will be released on November 23rd. The star just released the track list for the album, entitled ‘Rated R‘.
