Rihanna graces the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s August 2012 issue wearing a white silk Calvin Klein Collection dress and a Neil Lane bracelet. Inside, Rihanna discusses love, how she rebels, and previous relationships.
On love: “I have been conservative in my love life… it’s pretty much nonexistent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just — I don’t let people in.”
On how she rebels: “[I’m] rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair.”
On past relationships: “When I was in love, I fell so hard… The way it made me feel was priceless,” she admits. “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.”
