Rihanna keeps promoting her vamp-look and now she is in GQ January 2010 issue, looking hot and confident.
The diva is featured wearing just hotpants and a few pieces of jewelry on the cover. Other few photos show a lot of the girl’s body leaving little to imagination.
Wearing a set of black lingerie, a body suit, a top exposing lots of flesh the singer looks sexy and new for us.
Talking about the photo shoot the singer gigles and says:
It’s very sexy, yeah. At one point [chairman, Island Def Jam Music Group] L.A. Reid came into the shoot, and he was like, “Rihanna, put some fucking clothes on!”
The magazine also reveals a lot about Chris Brown thing and Ri’s attitude to this really fristrating event in her life.
The sunger still feels bad about what happened but says it’s liberating and a bit therapeutic to talk about it now:
Very liberating. It’s relieving. Because it was built up for so long, and all these thoughts and emotions have been running through my mind for the past eight months. And now it’s like I finally get to let go and move on. I don’t like talking about it a lot. But every time I do, it’s better; it’s easier each time.”
She knows that speaking about it is the right decision:
Because I wanted to move on. And I knew that was the only way I could have done it. And I wanted people to move on with me. ‘Cause the last big thing they know about me is That Night. And I don’t want that to be what people define me as.”
The question of domestic violence is an urgent one and many girls would like to know how Ri has handled it.
The star replies:
I just knew I’d be good one day. I just knew it. So I just kept waiting for that day. Like, you know, even though it was tough the entire time, there were ups and downs, I just kept knowing: I’m gonna get over it one day. I’m gonna get over it.”
She claims nobody has helped her through these hard days, but music has a lot:
Nobody. Really just music. And working. ‘Cause I didn’t really want to be around anybody, for them to stare at me and stuff, and feel sorry for me. So I just—I stayed in the house a lot. Then I started to get cabin fever. I was like, I’m going crazy in here.”
Although Rihanna admits that her friends were supportive:
Me and Jay-Z, we have a very close relationship, so he was there helping me through it and giving me advice and guidance, and just words of support. Like, strength.”
Unbrella singer says she was in shock during first three days:
Initially. I would say the first…the first seventy-two hours after I realized, it hit. The entire thing was kind of a daze. I was confused. It was a little weird, but…but then, after, I was getting bored of being in the house and sittin’ around. I called Jay Brown—he’s my A&R—and I was like, “I want to get back to the studio. I want to get back.”
Speaking about the insight Rihanna wanted to give to young women she said:
Love is blind. It took a lot of strength to pull out of that relationship. To finally just officially cut it off. It was like night and day. It was two different worlds. It was the world I lived for two years, and then having the strength to say, “I’m gonna step into my own world. Start over.”
Emotional scars troubled the performer much more than physical pain:
The physical pain comes and it goes. The bruises fade away. But the thing that stays with you is the emotional scars.”
Rihanna says she loved Chris a lot but being friends with him would be difficult:
Maybe in like ten years, you know? But it’s not something that I’m depending on. I’m not depending on his friendship.”
This negative experience didn’t influence the girl’s ability to trust people:
I can trust. I mean, I don’t like to stereotype; I believe everybody’s an individual. You can’t judge someone based on someone else’s actions. There are people in the world who will love you and people in the world who will hurt you, and there are people in the world who will do both.”
And she believes her ex-boyfriend can change:
Absolutely. Yeah. Some of them won’t change and some of them will—but you know, very few of them change.”
Ri says the girls who had to suffer the violence should not blame themselves for what happened to them:
After everything happened, it was a wake-up call to me…I didn’t realize how much of an effect it had on young girls’ lives, and that’s part of the insight that I wanna give. Stop blaming yourself for that outcome. There’s nothing you can do, ever, to excuse a man’s behavior like that.”
She didn’t blame herself but she wondered what could provoke that:
I never blamed myself, but I wondered what, what did I do to provoke it?…”
