Rihanna: Good Girl Gone Great

Rihanna: Good Girl Gone Great

Serial hit-maker Rihanna opens up in the June 2008 issue of Elle. Here’s what she had to say:

On her legendary hair: “I kept telling my managers, I’m cutting my hair. I’m cutting my hair. And they’re like, ‘How short? Not too short. Cut it how short?’ And I’m like, ‘Up to here.’ They never believed me. So when it was time to do the album cover [for Good Girl], the night before I cut it, I dyed it black. We went straight to the photo shoot, and no one at the record label knew what I looked like. When we sent the pictures over, they saw the hair and they all loved it. They loved it.”

On her formerly alcoholic father: “That was way, way, way back. We’re friends now. Now my dad is like the coolest person on the planet. He doesn’t smother me. He lets me live my life. And he’s been like that a lot, even when I was younger. He would watch me making a mistake and he wouldn’t stop me. My dad, he lets me make it and then I learn.”

On rumored beau Chris Brown: “We’ve always been friends, but we’re very close now.”

Her weiner almost flopped out during the photoshoot.

OVERRATED! She can’t write her own songs and gets people to do it for her.

It’s nice to see Elle putting a woman in her 30s on their cover. Usually they’re fixated on teens/20somethings.



Trying to be sexy…not working!

Rihanna ślicznie wyszła! Podoba mi się jej styl, choć z długimi włosami też ładnie jej było :]

Beautiful!! Good Girl Gone Great, damn rigth. I love it all.
The Bad Girl look from Rihanna makes her look hot, and The Good Girl look makes her look sexy. I mis the old Rihanna, and I hope she comes back very soon!!
