Rihanna Reveals The One Person She’s Afraid Of In Elle UK: “I’m Terrified Of Her”
Rihanna channels her inner catwoman for the April 2013 issue of Elle UK. The 25-year-old Bajan beauty is purr-fectly ferocious as she defends her on-again relationship with Chris Brown.
“Now that we’re adults, we can do this right. We got a fresh start and I’m thankful for that,” she tells the magazine. “Right now that’s just what we want, a great friendship that’s unbreakable.”
Rihanna later alludes that her monster hit, “Stay,” was inspired by her much-talked-about romance with the R&B singer. “[It] is a story about having love that close and wanting it to last forever,” Rihanna says of the song off her latest album Unapologetic. “You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let go of it. I would definitely say that he [Brown] is the one I have that kind of relationship with.”
Now that Rihanna has found love in a hopeless place, the singer is looking towards the future, which includes babies. “I will probably have a kid. And I’m praying I can go on vacation for a good month,” she says. “And I’ll have set some things up so I don’t have to tour for the rest of my life, even though I love touring. I want health and happiness in five years. I want to be healthy and happy.”
What makes the singer the happiest these days is sharing her life with the fans that made her famous. “Well I Instagram everything about my life, whether it’s smoking pot, in a strip club, reading a Bible verse—how crazy, I know!—or hanging out with my best friend, who happens to be Chris,” she said. “Everybody wanted to know what was happening in my life…that’s why I’m posting pictures of myself smoking pot, to tell the truth about myself. I’ve got so much to think about, why bring all this extra s— by being dishonest?”
But, that honesty has often landed Rihanna in hot water with her loved ones.”My mom went crazy on me,” she confessed. “I was embarrassed. I felt like I got my ass whupped in front of class in school. She called me up two days ago and reeled me in about two naked pictures my best friend Melissa put on Instagram—a sneak-peek from a photo book she’s making about me. She said, ‘This was a private moment and you’re just parading this around.’ She humbled the f— out of me. I’m not afraid of any person in this world but her. I’m terrified of her.”
