Rihanna Covers 'Harper's Bazaar' August 2012

Rihanna rocks a Calvin Klein dress and Neil Lane bracelet on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s August 2012 cover.

Here’s what the 24-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag, which hits newsstands on July 17:

On her body: “I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life! I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”

On falling in love: “When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”

FYI: On her dual cover, Ri looked stunning in Tom Ford.

    she can defend her “love” for that creey angry ugly abuser chirs brown all she wants- but that is messed up that she calls that love. I don’t car how rich or famous or pretty she is- she is messed up in the head if she is still holding on to the idea of that loser as something lovely.

    I call BULLS**IT. Rihanna is not one of those girls who is naturally super thin. She is the size she is because she wants to be and she is restricting her food and exercising. Don’t give us that bull that you are eating what you want but can’t get your butt back. Last fall Rihanna was on the U.S. X-factor and I remember after that performance everyone was calling her chunky. A few months later she was noticeably thinner and leaner. She is just like everyone else in Hollywood. She has an amazing body and is complaining. It is not brain science, you want to gain weight, eat a cheeseburger.

    Good Lord, RIRI this girl is the worst person in the public eye. She has such a huge infuence on little girls and teen and young women, and she is in our face all the freaking time. !!! Ok she works hard, and never stays out of the public eye..give her credit. She is making a ton of money.

    But i walk down the streeets of london and see the countless imitation rhianna haircut, the freaking ugly shaved side parted hair, and horrible tatoos on pretty young girls, and i cringe and i feel sad ..
    This is how this woman effected them,:(( and then she goes back to a guy that beat the living crap out of her….ok chicks dig bad boys, and we have a saying in englad treat them mean to keep them keen….but she could do better, and what example to set for all woman.

    Is she still milking for publicitythe violence she endured..Get your head examined girl. She is as messed up as Lohan and both have short life spans ahead.

    @lady love:
    Maybe she is referring to the beginning of their relationship when things were new and the relationship was healthy? Either way I think she will always picture him as the perfect one for her which is sad but you can’t change anyone’s feelings.

    @lady love: Your reading comprehension needs improvement. She said love and pain. The love was prior to the abuse. “And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. ” Then came the pain.

    @jacqueraj: You want to blame a Black woman for the choices of all women in London? Work on the racism in your country first, before you claim she has power over y’all.

    The reason you are not putting on weight when you are eating all the crap you eat rihanna is cause your taking to much drugs you probly think your eating heaps but really your just eating the drugs.

    It didnt have anything to do with race. Its the celebrity icon she is, and her responsibility as such. They all know the effect of pop culture on young minds, and its stronger than ever now.

    Thats why our youngster inncocence is lost .

    it had nothign to do with race.

    Are you mad at Rihanna that you can’t be thin? Because it seems like you are. I don’t think she says these things if it wasn’t true. I was a little sad when I read your comment. What have you really left for these kinds of words? Improved self-esteem? Do you get a slimmer body if you write these kinds of words? Because you know what? Rihanna looks good no matter what, if she’s thin or have curves. She’s a natural beauty..

    Just beautiful
