Rihanna on Guys: 'There's Just a Major Drought Out There'

Rihanna on Guys: 'There's Just a Major Drought Out There'

Rihanna rocks Versace on the cover of Elle‘s May 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 24-year-old pop star had to share:

On the fall-out after the Chris Brown incident: “It gave me guns. I was like, well, f—. 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. I wanted people to know who I am. Whatever they take that to be, good or bad, I just want them to know the truth. There are still a lot of rumors out there, and I’ll never be able to stop that. But you just have to ignore all that stuff. I have more freedom the more people know about me. It’s like, one less skeleton in the closet, one less burden, one less secret; now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”

On finding a man: “I feel like it’s hard for everybody! I don’t think it has anything to do with being famous. There’s just a major drought out there. I don’t know. I guess I’m challenging, because my job seems to affect every relationship I have or try to have. Even with people I think should get it, you know? That seems to be a big factor; it’s always an issue. But I just need to find the person who balances me out, because then things like my schedule won’t matter. I’ve done it before, so I know I can do it again.”

I lost all of my respect for Rihanna. She seems like such a try-hard, she thinks she is edgy, but she looks just trashy. The whole thing with Chris Beatherdown showed that she has no self respect.

Rihanna should win the award of biggest ho in a competition

I thought she already found the one (chris brown) who balances her out. btw, like the second pic.

There is a drought for disgusting s kanks!

You say you lost respect for her because of Chris Brown, but look at you guys calling her sexist, derogatory names.

Rihanna you ain’t the only one! it really is hard finding great guys, being Rihanna’s age I understand you little girls so worry about your periods. Learn how to separate fact and dislike.

buying this issue to support you Ri!!

@Amber if you want the issue get it now, i went to pick one up at walmart and it was all sold out already ;( It’s only the 4th of the month!

I am disgusted by her.

Ugh, so sick of Rhianna. Most overexposed and overhyped celeb around today. Besides Beyonce that is. Funny how both of them are linked to another overexposed and overhyped person, Jay-Z!!

Rihanna is a strong woman with an established career. Most men in the entertainment business are weak and can’t tolerate being with a strong, successful woman. She needs to hook up with someone not in the business who is successful in his own right.

Bet the ppl calling her a ho have slept with more ppl than she has! In what world is this a girl a ho – just cos her music is sexually suggestive doesn’t mean she sleeps around – she has only had 2 serious bf’s that we know of ..is that the behaviour of a ho – think not! Get off your high horses losers n hypocrites

I’ve always liked Rihanna’s ability to not give a crap what anyone thinks or says about her. Funny how she’s labeled this or that and yet she is the one living HER dream, calling HER own shots, living HER life by her own rules and is not apologizing for the freedomw she’s created for herself to be herself. For these reasons alone I can respect her even if she isn’t the best singer, talent, etc. Her talent lies in the ability to entertain and to stay relevant, talked about and emulated good and bad. Smart girl whose making money in the process. Can’t fault her for knowing how to work what she’s got. How many of us can say the same for our own lives?

RI LOOKS STUNNING ON THAT COVER. IN THE PROCESS OF PERSONS TRYING TO LIVE, CRITICIZE RIHANNAS’ LIFE THEY ULTIMATELY FAIL AT THIER OWN LIVES. SO WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT RI’S LIFE ARE YOURS?

We’ve Only Seen This Woman Have 2 Serious BFs Since Her Career Started, Never Seen Her Having Sex or w/Anyone. Yet We Call Her a Hoe because She sings about Having Sex, Like Having Sex Makes You One. From The information That We Actually Know is that she had 2bfs, so we can only assume that she had sex w/2ppl. So If you had more than 2 Sexual Partners, You are a hypocrite if you call her any derrogatory name for being sexual.

the first person to leave a comment was a hater who definitely needs to try-harder to live her/his life and stop hating on others for living their’s. going to get the mag tomorrow hopefully.
