Rihanna shows her softer side in the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar. The pop princess often flaunts her edgy and hard persona in videos like Disturbia and S&M, but she admits to the magazine she’s rebellious in her music and fashion, but not in her personal life.
“I have been conservative in my love life… it’s pretty much nonexistent,” she reveals. “If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just… I don’t let people in.”
It’s been more than three years since her very traumatic and public split from abusive boyfriend, Chris Brown, and it seems Rihanna is still struggling with love lost. “When I was in love, I fell so hard,” she says. “I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”
In the fashion spread, shot by Camilla Akrans, the songstress looks sleek and stunning in Tom Ford and Calvin Klein, but the Bajan beauty says there’s one thing missing from her thin figure. “I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life!” she laughs. “I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”
