After her ‘Pon the Replay’ song went viral and got everyone shaking them ‘tush’, Rihanna‘s career sky-rocketed and the singer was catapulted to international fame with the speed of light. The singer managed to transform herself like no other, turning herself into a ‘good girl gone bad,’ but it seems that after all, behind her ‘tough cookie’ style there is a softy hiding as RiRi confessed to being quite conservatory in love to Harper’s Bazaar August 2012. The singer landed the cover of the magazine and opened up about sex, music, love and more, right before channeling her inner goddess for a sexy photoshoot with Camilla Akrans for Harper’s Bazaar.

She could easily be branded a style chameleon as the singer constantly reinvents her look, going for different fashion styles but most of all different hairstyles. She’s definitely the hair queen in Hollywood as she’s switching from blonde to black, from short to long and in between like no one else and she managed to pull off any look perfectly. Her irrefutably fierce and hot style influenced girls across the planet, but apparently after her tough shell there’s a softy hiding as Rihanna confessed to Harper’s Bazaar about love during and post her relationship to Chris Brown. She said:

“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.”

The ‘You Da One’ singer has never been constantly making headlines with her new looks and especially new tattoos, but it seems that that is how she expresses her rebellion, apart from her music, as the singer said:

“I am rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair. 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.”

She might keep a distance from some, but Rihanna is not planning on keeping a distance from her fans any time soon as despite all the fame she’s achieved and despite the fact she’s proved her worth with her hits and awards, the singer says ‘I’m still in denial that I’ve proved that, so I have to continue. I will not lose.”

Her slender figure has been exposed on the cover of the magazine with the help of numerous high-end outfits, but how does she manage to keep so lean and fit? Well, according to Rihanna, she’s not doing anything special, she’s certainly not depriving herself from eating as she’s looking to get her curves back as she says:

“I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life! I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”
