Rihanna is the cover girl for Marie Claire UK December issue and she gets really personal. She talks about her relationship with Matt Kemp, Eminem and once again the incident with Chris Brown and the wake up call she got. The double-cover issue was shot by Satoshi Sakiusa. On one cover she is wearing a Sonia Rykiel fall 2010 feather dress and on the other cover that subscriber's will get which Riri autograph, she is wearing a Mark Fast mini. I think she looks gorgeous on the cover, continue to read some of the incerpts from the issue.
Rihanna on how she felt after the attack:“God has a crazy way of working, and sometimes when stuff happens you feel like, ‘What did I do to deserve this?’ Why was it backfiring on me?’ But I needed that wake-up call in my life. I needed a turning point, and that’s what God was giving to me.”
The Wake-up Call:
“All this terrible stuff they say to you, it breaks you down. [But] once you’re back on your feet — if you ever make it back on your feet — that’s the ultimate achievement. I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it. It was a different day. I felt different. I didn’t feel lonely,” she recalls. I felt like I wanted to get up and be in the world. That was a great, great feeling.”
Her new relationship:
“I feel like I smile for real this time. The smiles come from inside, and it exudes in everything I do. People feel my energy is different. When I smile they can tell that it’s pure bliss and not just a cover up.”
Whether she related to the song with Eminem:
“Absolutely. Absolutely! Every word in that song is true. It would take somebody who’s been on the inside to understand how magical those lyrics are.”
