Rihanna covers the July 2011 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. Inside, it’s promised that she “finally reveals her deepest feelings.”
Wearing a tribal-inspired midriff-baring top and gold jewelry (including a to-die-for set of bangles), Rihanna pushes her hair to the side to show off her neck and shoulder tattoo. Inside, she dons a zebra-print Louis Vuitton gown.
Inside, she reveals that she’s secretly terrified of childbirth and baby weight and that she likes her guys “hot and hung.” She also speaks on dating men.
On what turns her on:
I’m turned on to a guy by different things. It could be the way he looks. It could be his intelligence. It’s really a spontaneous thing. I’m open to love, but guys should have to earn it because the minute they get it, they want something else. Men are like hunters; they like the chase. So you have to keep them guessing. Actually, I’m like that too. I get bored very quickly. So, if someone can make me laugh, that’s the best.
On letting her guard down:
It’s something that I’m working on. Melissa always says to me, ‘You need to let your guard down.’ Because even if a guy texts me or says something slick, I would never entertain it. I think, “That’s bull***t. It’s just an act.’ And Melissa’s like, You’re crazy. Let your guard down.” But I will. It’s going to happen.
