Rihanna - "Elle" Magazine July 2007
Rihanna strikes some sexy (and some strange) poses in the July 207 Music issue of Elle Magazine. Anyone want to enlighten us as to what she’s wearing on her head in the main image?
On her favorite producer: “Timbaland [is a] genius. He takes the work seriously without taking it too seriously.”
On her defining pop star moment: “I’ve had a few encounters with fans who start crying, and that freaks me out because I don’t know what to do. One girl in Barbados started screaming when we met, and the more I hugged her, the more she was screaming. I was like, Uh-oh.”
On her style influences: “I’m influenced a lot by Japanese girls, not just in Tokyo, but all over. They walk down the street looking like they’re going to shoot a video with the hair, makeup, heels and tiny, tiny shorts. It’s crazy.”
On her dream collaborator: “I’d love to record with André 3000. He’s funky, whether it’s production-wise or it’s him rapping. ‘Hey Ya!’ is one of my favorite songs, but you know what I really love? His remix of ‘Walk It Out.’”
This issue of Elle featuring Rihanna hits newsstands in NY/LA tomorrow, Tuesday, Jun 12.
