Rihanna covers the January 2011 issue of GQ British Magazine! In her interview she reveals about how she has grown as a woman, how people may perceive her new image and new album, as well her new feeling of liberation and freedom following her past relationship and break-up.
“Sometimes when you’re on the inside of a relationship like that, you can’t see it clearly for what it is. “I left – it was the best feeling. It was so freeing.”
She admitted to the struggles with past decisions, especially after swearing never to let a man touch her after seeing her mum Monica suffer domestic violence.
“I witnessed it happening to my mum and I said I would never let that happen to me – and then it was happening. “Now, when I look back, it bugs me out that I couldn’t see it for what it was.”
R&B singer Chris Brown, as you may all know attacked Rihanna in his car in Los Angeles on Grammy weekend. He was sentenced to five years probation, a year-long domestic violence program and 180 days of community service.
The singer also added to the subject by responding to a fan’s question about whether the media will stop asking about her past incident:
“Before that, I was just a little girl from the island, singing pop music. It was easy to think I didn’t have a problem in the world. Then all of a sudden, boom! Everybody realises that I do have problems.”
But Rihanna says that dark period is finally behind her, adding:
“It made me strong. It’s a moment in my life I wish would disappear. In my head, it’s gone.”
In an interview for the January edition of style mag GQ, chart- topper Rihanna asked for her fans not to pity her.
“I have too much pride,” she admitted. “I’d never let anyone see me cry. I don’t want you to remember me for that.”
Rihanna, whose latest album ‘Loud’ is No#2 in the UK charts, also thinks her sexy image may annoy people.
She said.. “Girls don’t like to see other girls dressed sexy. I get that. People see my ass out and my boobs out, so it can get a little irritating.”
Rihanna also took to her twitter to say she is fed up with journalists asking her questions about Chris Brown. Check the tweets below.
