Rihanna is my obsession lately and I was overwhelmed by how gorgeous she looks in the November Vogue spread shot by non other than Annie Liebovits. I went on to one of her fan sites (here) to get these images along with a behind the scenes video below and full interview you can find here! She talks about being fearless, growing up and her upcoming seventh studio album - Unapologetic.
I know we're all pretty bummed out that Riri has gone back to Chris Brown but for some reason I still love her integrity and affirmation in her choice to stay with him. Perhaps its sends the wrong message to women who have experienced abuse but it also sends the right message to those of us struggling to forgive and understand the concept of love itself. She inspires me so much when she talks about being comfortable with who she is in every way, which I think a lot of us in our 20's struggle to come to terms with. She's only 24 but she's well on her way to becoming a role model for many girls her age. I am holding thumbs that things work out between her and Chris Brown because I feel like she deserves a second chance at making love work for her and getting the respect she deserves.
Shine bright Riri
