Rihanna landed the cover for the May edition of Elle Magazine, and looks nothing less than stunning in her new spread. She also took a moment to respond to the people who hated on her collaborating with Chris Brown on her song “Cake” & Chris‘ “Turn Up The Music (Remix)”.
“People end up wasting their time on the blogs 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.”
#TRILL. I think mainstream media is definitely starting to realize that they can’t bully Riri into conforming into their ‘role model’ stereotype. Check out more from Rihanna‘s shoot and spread below and after the break.
“For this month’s cover shoot, ELLE Creative Director Joe Zee imagined a romantic narrative starring Rihanna as the fiery heroine in a passionate affair with a salsa dancer. On an early February morning, the ELLE production team transformed the Veluzat Motion Picture Ranch northwest of Los Angeles into the ideal backdrop: a windswept town evocative of documentary photographer Robert Polidori’s shots of deserted, patina-rich Havana interiors.”
