First interview extracts and photos from ELLE UK (Updated)

Published

on

Acknowledging her relationship with Chris Brown in an interview for April’s Elle UK, Rihanna says that in five years she hopes to have a baby and to be healthy and happy.

“Right now, that’s just what we want, a great friendship, that’s unbreakable. Now that we’re adults we can do this right. We got a fresh start and we’re thankful for that.”

In five years? “I will probably have a kid,” but in the short term, she’s just praying for a month-long vacation and a break from her hectic touring. Rihanna told Elle that her new single, “Stay,” is a story about true love and wanting it to last forever, and she now feels that way about Brown.

“You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it, you don’t want to let go of it,” Rihanna said. “I would definitely say he is the one I have that kind of relationship with.”

She is sporting at least one symbol, however, that says to the world she will never be a victim again – a gun tattoo. While some have commented about its symbolism, Rihanna described it as empowering.

“Everybody wanted to know what was happening in my life. Is she a drug addict? No. Is she an alcoholic? No. Is she a victim? No,” Rihanna said. “That’s why I got the gun. It was a symbol of strength. I’ll never be a victim.”

And Rihanna talked about her love of posting pictures of her life – and her body – online.

“Well I Instagram everything about my life, whether it’s smoking pot, in a strip club, reading a Bible verse – how crazy, I know – or hanging out with my best friend, who happens to be Chris.”

However, she said one person does make her feel guilty for posting so many raunchy snaps on the social networking site – her mum. She quipped:

“I’m not afraid of any person in this world but her. I’m terrified of her! She called me two days ago and reeled me in about two naked pictures Melissa put up on Instagram – a sneak-peek from a photo book she’s making about me. My mom, she went crazy on me. I was like embarrassed. I felt like I got my ass whupped in front of my class in school! She said, ‘This was like a private moment and you’re just parading this around.’ She humbled the f*** out of me.'”

Rihanna is on TIME’s list of the world’s most influential people

Published

Rihanna is on TIME Magazine’s “The 100 Most Influential People of 2018” list! Read the article written by Adele below or here:

“I actually can’t remember the first time I met Rihanna; I was probably numb from the shock of it. She is one year older than me, but I feel like she’s been around forever. The progression of her superstardom feels steady, well deserved and extremely natural. She burst onto the scene with the absolute banger that is “Pon de Replay” in 2005, so young and breathtakingly beautiful. But the first time it felt like she made everyone sit up was with “Umbrella.” It crossed her over to every platform and into everyone’s lives. It felt like she had truly arrived, and she hasn’t slowed down since. Even more, she has designed and conquered an entire lane of her own. The innovative and groundbreaking world of Rihanna that no one else will ever be safe in and get away with copying. She makes her own rules and bends ours.

Whenever I’ve met her, she’s been the most gracious, loyal and funny goofball of an icon. She glows like when someone’s taken a picture with a flash and you’re dazed for a few minutes after. But it’s also very clear in that glow that she genuinely doesn’t give a f-ck; she’s fearless and full of all the right kind of attitude to be everything that she is and will be forever.”

On Instagram, Rihanna wrote:

“thank you for the acknowledgment @time …. and thank you @adele for your kind words! this was such a cool surprise!”
