Rihanna covers the December 2010 issue of Interview Magazine and got the honor to be interviewed by her good friend Kanye West. Kanye West wrote the cover story on Rihanna for the upcoming issue of Interview Magazine. Rihanna even talked about having a baby.

Below are a few excerpts from the interview…

Kanye: “So what inspired you to have that pink tank on your last tour? That was amazing, when you were sitting on top of the army tank.”

Rihanna: “I love to combine femininity with a kind of extreme masculine egde, and I felt like the tank is just not a typical thing that you think of when you think of a girl — or in any kind of relation to a girl. Then we made it hot pink. We just added that touch.”

Kanye: “I mean, people really need to see a photograph — the entire tank was pink. That was a great piece of commercial pop art. Was the idea of that to kind of portray an American Dream — like the fantasy of a this hot black girl sitting on a top of a pink tank?”

Rihanna:
“I never actually thought of it like that.”


Kanye:
“How does it feel to know that you could have any man in the world. Or woman. How does it feel to know that you can turn straight women gay?

Rihanna: “Is that a real question?”

Kanye: “Yeah.”

Rihanna: “Well…Thank you. I don’t know how to feel about that. I guess that’s flattering.”

On motherhood: Rihana: “I don’t really plan on the age. It could be a year from now. It could be 10 years from now. Whenever is right. I mean, I have a lot of other stuff to accomplish before I get to kids. Whenever the time is right, I’ll just know.”

T.I. covers the December 2010 issue of VIBE magazine. The magazine became the latest edition, which the rapper was interviewed before he was due back in jail for his latest run-in with the police in Vegas with his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottell. In the interview T.I. spoke about their problems with pills, touched on family and imprisonment.

Below are a few excerpts from the interview, which will fully appear in the December issue of the publication …

I heard you mention that good deeds are quickly forgotten. Do you think that you and I been treated unfairly?

If you take in the extent to which people are generally talking about me, then – yes. But they are people who imagine something can not help. They help only those who know personally. And how can I expect to see me will be treated differently if they see me only on TV? People have always had so done: Jesus, Martin Luther King Jr., Muhammad Ali: When all is well, they are next. When something goes wrong, they are against you.

But now nothing is worse. Due to the fact that you did.

So I’ll tell you this: when you look at a guy who did not come home, he began to sell drugs at 12 years, 13 took the weapon, fell into the firefight, 15 landed in jail. And in all this chaos and hooliganism, but when I was in prison for a gun with a silencer, I have changed my life. And now you want to crucify him, for what? For three pills. Well, yes, it’s wrong and inexcusable. No problem. But if you take a large scale, it is a trifle. You can not kill a man after he went through a more serious things in life. Here it would be wrong if I rode with the weapon or shoot someone, it was then – yes. Just think about it.

How is it that you are addicted to drugs?

When I got out of prison, I had to frequently visit the dentist to repair the canals, pulling teeth. From January to February. And to relieve the pain, I subscribed to OxyContin and hydrocodone. In October 2007 I gave up and drink and smoke. Well, I took these pills and was taken only because of the pain. And then I liked it – more precisely, from them I felt good. And it’s legal. Once the pain passed, I continued to take them. I had 6.5 pieces. And I had about 80 pieces. Anyone else would have begun to drink or smoke and I saw pain. But once I realized that I was starting to take a seat them.

You talked about it with Eminem?

Of course. We were recording together and talked a lot. I asked how he knew that hooked. But if you consciously begin to self-harm, it means that something is wrong with you … with brains.”

Just In: Rihanna Speaks On Chris Brown and Why She Didn’t Attend Katy Perry’s Wedding

Rihanna on Chris Brown: “I Needed That Wake-Up Call”

More than a year after Chris Brown pled guilty to assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009, the 22-year-old singer tells the December issue of Marie Claire UK that she doesn’t regret the traumatic experience.

“God has a crazy way of working, and sometimes when stuff happens you feel like, ‘What did I do to deserve this?’ Why was it backfiring on me?'” she recalls. “But I needed that wake-up call in my life. I needed a turning point, and that’s what God was giving to me.”

At the time, however, Rihanna says it was difficult to go through such a painful relationship in the public eye.

“All this terrible stuff they say to you, it breaks you down,” she says.

“[But] once you’re back on your feet — if you ever make it back on your feet — that’s the ultimate achievement.”

Still, she admits it wasn’t easy to break up with Brown, 21, who later pled guilty to a felony and accepted a plea deal that included more than 1,400 hours for community labor in addition to five years probation.

So how did Rihanna finally find the strength to end the toxic relationship?

“I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it. It was a different day. I felt different. I didn’t feel lonely,” she recalls. “I felt like I wanted to get up and be in the world. That was a great, great feeling.”

And she hasn’t looked back since.

“I feel like I smile for real this time. The smiles come from inside, and it exudes in everything I do,” she says. “People feel my energy is different. When I smile they can tell that it’s pure bliss and not just a cover up.”

Why Rihanna Skipped BFF Katy Perry’s Wedding


Katy Perry tied the knot with Russell Brand in India over the weekend, she was noticeably short one equally famous gal pal: Rihanna.

One of Perry‘s best friends, Rihanna, 22, was on hand for Perry‘s epic Vegas bachelorette bash in September, but wasn’t among friends and family when Perry, 25, wed Brand, 35, on an Indian tiger reserve on Oct. 23.

Why the no-show?

“Rih was finishing her album, and she just switched managers, so she had to pull out at the last minute,” a source close to the “Only Girl (In the World)” singer explains to UsMagazine.com.

“It was always sort of up in the air that she would go anyway, and Katy knew that,” the source adds. “They saved her a room just in case, but they always knew it would be nearly impossible for her to make it as she’s still finishing the album and it’s out in a few weeks. Rih was in the studio all weekend.”

Perry and Brand exchanged their vows against “the inspirational and majestic countryside of Northern India,” in a ceremony officiated by a Christian minister, according to her rep’s statement. Perry wore an Elie Saab haute couture dress.

The “Firework” singer and the British comic have since flown to the Maldives for their honeymoon.

Rihanna Bought Katy Perry a “Really Cool” Wedding Gift

She may not have been able to attend Katy Perry and Russell Brand‘s wedding in India last weekend, but Rihanna made sure the “Teenage Dream” singer knew she was there in spirit.

“I got her a really, really cool gift,” Rihanna, 22, told Entertainment Tonight Wednesday afternoon. “But I’ll let her tell you about that!”

Though Rihanna said she and Perry continued to text each other prior to the ceremony, she hasn’t heard a peep from her pal since Perry and Brand tied the knot.

“Ever since she’s been there it’s been no text messages because there’s no service,” the “Only Girl (In The World)” singer explained.
