Rihanna Is “Forever Strong” For Elle Magazine

Another day, another article where Rihanna talks about her breakup with Chris Brown and reconciliation. The Barabadian beauty opens up to Elle Magazine about finding love, having children and how the Chris Brown incident “liberated” her. She understands why her professional reconciliation with Brown has upset some of her fans and addresses that in the May 2012 issue of the fashion mag.

But if you’re more interested in how the “We Found Love” singer looks instead of her interview, well you won’t be disappointed. RiRi sizzles on the cover wearing a studded lambskin jacket and skirt from Versace’s latest collection. Inside the issue, she wears plenty of sexy attire including a tight white Dior skirt and Jean Paul Gaultier bra. It’s all very 90s Madonna if you ask me. Photographer Tom Munro snapped both the magazine cvoer and the fashion editorial inside the publication. Check out a few of the photos of the “Battleship” actress below along with her responses to the Chris Brown questions.

On Chris Brown Breakup

“It gave me guns. I was like, well, f**k. They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it. […] Now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”

On Chris Brown Reconciliation Backlash

“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”

On Starting A Family

“It could be tomorrow. It could be 20 years from now. I just feel like when the time is right, God will send me a little angel. But first, of course, I have to find a man. I mean, there’s a very important missing piece to the puzzle here!”
