The September issues have arrived! Rihanna appears on the cover of Glamour magazine’s September 2011 issue wearing a backless top and a pair of sequined pants. Inside, she discusses drama, her personal style, and being a role model.
On drama: “I hate drama. But at the same time, nothing bothers me more than when life’s perfect. And that’s the sick part. I just love a challenge, whether it’s a relationship, my career, clothing…”
On her personal style: “Getting dressed, I want to pick the most bizarre pair of shorts so I can figure out how to make it look right, or work an outfit that will make people go, ‘What the hell is she wearing?'”
On being a role model: “In the beginning of my career, it was really strict for me. I couldn’t wear pink or red lipstick; it was just bizarre. We had a young fan base, and they were trying to keep me fresh. But I just really wanted to be myself. I wanted to be sassy, the attitude, all these things that I am.”
Also inside the September 2011 issue: a fall fashion preview and a report on the most popular beauty products in the country. For more, pick up the issue when it arrives on newsstands on August 9 or head to Glamour.com.
