Rihanna Talks Love, Pain, And "Eating Everything" In Bazaar

rihanna
We know, we know, you’re over the whole Chris Brown-Rihanna thing. As are we, until either one of them mutters to the media and we’re all ears... again. This time around, it’s our eyes that are popping, as RiRi strikes a pose and speaks up in August’s Harper's Bazaar. Taking center stage in our favorite "he did it, she did it" debacle, the "We Found Love" gal graces the glossy cover and looks every bit the Barbadian beauty in a Calvin Klein crepe ensemble — oh, and that Tom Ford gold dress/python boot amazingness for the subscriber cover. "I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life!”, she says, and boy, if that’s what the result looks like, get her a knife and fork, stat.
Unlike last month's UK Esquire story, the songstress talks that talk (get it?), dishing on her career, figure, style, and of course the all intriguing L-O-V-E: “When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. 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.” We hear you, but — we apologize in advance for the word play — if anyone can "find love in a hopeless place," it's you.
