Rihanna to 'Vogue': Fashion is About Commitment, I Worry About the Pain Later

Rihanna to 'Vogue': Fashion is About Commitment, I Worry About the Pain Later

Rihanna rocks a pair of fancy jeans on her third ever cover of Vogue magazine’s March 2014 issue, on newsstands February 25.

Here’s what the 25-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On painful fashion choices: “It’s not about pain. It’s about the commitment. I say to myself, ‘I want to look like this,’ and worry about the pain later. I’ve had nights I had to tiptoe home and the balls of my feet wouldn’t even allow me to stand.”

On not intentionally being a rebel: “I don’t go out of my way to be a rebel or to have that perception. But a lot of the decisions I make, a lot of the direction I want to move, is against the grain, or against society’s tight lane, and I’m aware of that sometimes. It might not be fitting with the norm, but that’s OK for me.”

On her love for Instagram: “Instagram is my way of communicating to the world. When I’m on tour, I keep fans in the loop. I don’t really think about it too much. Literally, I can be sitting in a car and be bored, so I do a selfie just because I’m bored. Or if my dog is running around in circles and I think that’s funny, I put it on Instagram.”

  • Sheyleen

    great I had written I comment here but since Jared is friend with Rihanna my comment is not here.

    I was in that party with her in LA month ago. She does cocaine and weed in front of everybody! Of course she makes sure asking her body guard to check if anybody has cameras on. She even sucked a girl breast in front of everybody. But then here it is on Vogue Magazine been so CLASSY when we all know she is not. She will be on Brazil VOGUE cover in May. That girl is trashy

  • Sayer

    She looks “cool” here, but, I fear this is a precursor for Miley getting a cover. Or one of the Kardashian-Jenner clans.

    Vogue is not so high standard.

    Rihanna- 3 covers
    Lady Gaga- 2 covers
    Sienna Miller -2 covers
    Blake Lively– 2 covers
    Kate Moss–multiple covers.

    Vogue is not so high class
    Rihanna– 3 covers
    Lady Gaga- 2 covers
    Sienna Miller – 2 covers
    Blake Lively- 2 covers
    Kate Moss- Multiple covers

    It’s only a matter of time before Miley or a Kardashian gets one.

  • John

    any woman who is stupid enough to walk on stilts in the name of fashion…well, enough said.

  • Lisa Bonnet

    She looks like Lisa Bonnet here….

  • Ja Som

    100 % agree

  • Samantha

    Vogue is notorious for not putting black women on their covers but I guess they figured Rihanna is a multi million selling singer and they want to draw people to buy their slowly dying magazine. Hypocrites. Rihanna looks great on the cover, btw. I hope they put Lupita on the cover next.

  • Des

    Sheyleen: so a woman who is sexual and does what she wants is trashy? You are so 1890.

  • Wow

    Rihanna looks fantastic. I love that woman.

  • Sarah

    @Sheyleen: LMAO you look so bitter. LOOOL and here is Rihanna on that VOGUE cover while you’re bitter hating on her LOOOOL. You can spread your pathetic lies about her forever, but guess what she is still on that VOGUE cover and you’re still bitter LOOOL :) Riri is winning and bitter pathetic girls like you will stay bitter pathetic girls :D

  • LoveRi

    Love it she looks amazing. She looks so young and so fresh faced.

  • Sad

    Yep, the Kartrashian will be on the next cover.

  • She looks great.

    @Lala: I think the same, she looks beautiful and short hair suits her very well.

  • Rachel

    Wow Rihanna looks perfect on that cover. She gives me the young Lisa Bonet vibe.

  • Ali

    I think she is a beautiful woman, but this cover is poorly shot/lit/makeup/photoshopped. How can Vogue make this kind of mistake? They made Lena dunham look good, and they can’t make Rihanna look good? she shouldn’t look like anybody else – she should look like an extraordinary version of herself.

  • Cutie

    Rihanna is really naturally beautiful but she needs to get an education; she IS trashy on the inside.
    Vanity Fair is much better than sell-out Vogue; but then what do you expect, print publishing is dead so you gotta sell out.

  • Sarah

    @Cutie: aka @Sheyleen: LOL you’re so bitter. This cheap pathetic move to compliment first just to insult in the end is so cheap. Keep on bitter hating it doesnt change a thing :D Rihanna is on VOGUE looking great, yes VOGUE, while you’re trying to cover up your bitterness with backhanded compliments. Your behaviour is what I call trashy :D

  • Great cover

    Rihanna looks fabulous. I cant wait to buy this issue.

  • dont be so jealous

    Cutie: she is smart enough to have turned herself into a multimillion dollar international star who’s every hit goes straight to the top 10. she is on every magazine cover and is world renowned. what have you done with your life? NOTHING> Goodbye. Hater.

  • Ha

    @Rachel: @Lisa Bonnet: STOP it with the bull, you two!! Lisa was MUCH prettier and sexier back then at her prime. Rihanna has nothing on her.

  • Ha

    I’m all for black women being on those big covers but Rihanna is not the ideal black woman to me. She’s everything but class. I bet Miley or Kim is gonna get a Vogue cover soon ….I betcha!

  • hanar

    Looking a little rough there.

  • Love it

    Rihanna looks amaziiiiiiiiiiiing. Cant wait for that issue. Funny how bitter girls like @Ha: or @Sheyleen: aka Cutie constantly spam Rihanna threads. Yes you bitter pathetic girls Rihanna is running your lifes, while looking great on the Vogue cover :)

  • Vi

    Just don’t put the trashy Kardashians on the cover at least Rihanna has a career.

  • Sheyleen

    @Sarah @Des U must be just like her. Your mom must be proud. And why you don’t talk abou the fact she does drugs? I can’t wait until the day she’s going to be arrested :)

  • Sheyleen stop being pathetic

    @Sheyleen: Its so funny when people like you spam Rihanna threads and get mad when people call them bitter girls, but thats just the truth. ITS OBVIOUS GIRL YOU’RE BITTER AF =) I love it. Even want to act like Vogue aint the ish. LOL Anna Wintour is a person doesnt know you exist Mrs. Bitterness. But she sure knows who is Rihanna. She sold more records than bitter girls like you could even count. YES SHE IS ON VOGUE AND YES YOU’RE UP ON HER COMMENT SECTION CAUSE YOU GOT NO LIFE BUT BITTERNESS, THATS WHY YOU HERE. THE ONLY THING YOU’RE PROVING IS HOW BITTER AND PATHETIC YOU ARE. EVEN TELLING LIES ABOUT HER TO MAKE YOURSELF FEEL BETTER :D Girl nobody believes you that you would be on the same parties as Rihanna. Bitter girls like you gonna stay bitter, while Rihanna keeps being successful and on covers all around the word, thats what you deserve to stay bitter :D Do you really think your pathetic lies would change anything for her? LOL You came even back to check her comment section LOOOOOOOOL. I mean I’m a fan I’ll gonna check articles about her. BUT YOU ARE JUST A BITTER GIRL TRYING TO PUT ALL YOUR LIFEBITTERNESS ON HER LOOOOOL =D

  • Sheyleen

    U don’t even know with who I hang out with. And I was in the same party she was because I know her cousin and I am from Barbados tooo.

    Something is about to happen with Rihanna. When it happen please just come back in here and come call me bitter ;)

    If u had that much sure about who she is u wouldn’t be here standing for her. Bye nigga

  • Sheyleen stop being pathetic

    You just cant stop being pathetic and bitter its just sad. Girl you need help. Trying to convince people to believe your lies through making more lies is as cheap as your whole attitude. You’re trying so bad to convince people that YOU KNOW PEOPLE, because nobody in your life is giving you attention otherwise. I guess its because you dont have anything else to offer. You even wish bad things on Rihanna. Its sad that you need to hope that bad things happen to a person to make yourself feel better. I can understand that people avoid you, thats why you come back here all the time, even if you’re not a fan of her. I feel for you. Try to make something out of YOUR OWN LIFE.
