Rihanna is covering the May 2012 issue of ELLE US magazine and saying that she looks gorgeous is an understatement because she looking amazing. On the cover, Riri is rocking a studded lambskin jacket and skirt from the VERSACE SPRING 2012 collection with an oval link necklace and cable bracelets from DAVID YURMAN. Pink lips, instese eyes, black nail polish and a blond straight cut with bangs completed her look. Of course this was shot before she recently dyed her hair back to black. In the issue shot by photographer Tom Munro and styled by Joe Zee, Rihanna talks about Chris Brown, finding a man, having kids and more. You can read the full interview when the issue hits newsstand on April 17, 2012.
On her breakup with Chris Brown:
“It gave me guns. I was like, well, fuck. They know more about me than I want them to know. It’s embarrassing. But that was my opening. That was my liberation, my moment of bring it. […] Now you know that, so you can say what you want about it. I don’t have anything to hide.”
On the backlash over their reconciliation:“The bottom line is that everyone thinks differently. It’s very hard for me to accept, but I get it. People end up wasting their time on the blogs or whatever, ranting away, and that’s all right. Because tomorrow I’m still going to be the same person. I’m still going to do what I want to do.”

On having kids:
“It could be tomorrow. It could be 20 years from now. I just feel like when the time is right, God will send me a little angel. But first, of course, I have to find a man. I mean, there’s a very important missing piece to the puzzle here!"
On finding that man:“I feel like it’s hard for everybody! I don’t think it has anything to do with being famous. There’s just a major drought out there. […] But I just need to find the person who balances me out, because then things like my schedule won’t matter. I’ve done it before, so I know I can do it again.”
