Rihanna covers August issue of Harper's Bazaar, opens up about body issues, Chris Brown and more

From Clutch Magazine: Rihanna covers the August 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, which hits newsstands July 17. The cover shoot is Rihanna’s first for the magazine and was teased with behind-the-scenes photos back in April.

The Bajan beauty looks regal in sleek and sophisticated white gowns and tops by Alexander Wang, Paco Rabanne, Calvin Klein, and more. Juxtaposed with Rihanna’s jet-black hair, the ivory pieces look stunning.

In the story, Rihanna, who recently lost her grandmother, opens up about her body, her love life, and her rebellious streak:

On wanting her butt back:

“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.”

On being rebellious:

“I’m rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair. I have been conservative in my love life … it’s pretty much nonexistent. 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.”

On recording with Chris Brown:

“The fans could have said, ‘We don’t want anything to do with it.’ I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn’t see it that way because I’m in a different place.”

On love:

“When I was in love, I fell so hard. 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.”
