I guess the third time is the charm as Rihanna lands her third cover of VOGUE magazine. The March 2014 cover which was shot by David Sims features the 'Diamond' singer in a LOUIS VUITTON SPRING 2014 ensemble.
In the issue, Riri talks about not wanting to be famous, being rebellious, wearing men's clothing, Instagram and more. For more details on Riri's feature, go to Vogue.com or pick up a copy on newsstand.

On being famous:
On experimenting with men's clothing:
“When I was thirteen or fourteen, I didn’t want to wear what my mom wanted me to wear. I was very much a boy in my style, my demeanor. All my friends were guys. I loved things that boys did. I loved being easy with my clothes. I loved wearing hats and scarves and snapbacks on my head. It was my way of rebelling. I wanted to dress like my brother. After a while, it was just easier for Mom to dress us both the same. We wore the same jeans, the same T-shirts.”
On being rebellious:
“I don’t go out of my way to be a rebel or to have that perception, but a lot of the decisions I make, a lot of the direction I want to move, is against the grain, or against society’s tight lane, and I’m aware of that sometimes. It might not be fitting with the norm, but that’s OK for me.”
“Instagram is my way of communicating to the world. When I’m on tour, I keep fans in the loop. I don’t really think about it too much. Literally, I can be sitting in a car and be bored, so I do a selfie just because I’m bored. Or if my dog is running around in circles and I think that’s funny, I put it on Instagram. I follow girls from the Middle East. It gives you ideas.”
On moving to New York full time:
“I’ve downsized. I want a smaller closet. I want simpler. I want to just take it back to what’s important.”
