Rihanna's WHITE HOT "HARPER'S BAZAAR" 2012 August Cover & Spread, Talks Fearing LOVE Again + Rih ATTENDS Grandmother's Wake

Rihanna trades in her all black everything and tomboyish style she's been rocking lately...for the white hot August 2012 issue of HARPER'S BAZAAR. See Rihanna donning a series of designer gowns and suits, and honoring her Gran Gran Dolly inside.....


Rihanna, rocking a cutaway Calvin Klein Collection dress and Neil Lane jewelry above and on the cover, may be dealing with the death of her Grandmother.  But in HARPER'S BAZAAR, she seems to be figuring out her life the way she wants to.

The vulnerable rock star reveals that she's rebellious, is scared of falling in love again, and wants her ass back.  Here's a few highlights:

On her rebellious behavior:

"I'm 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."

On Chris Brown's "Birthday Cake" remix:

"The fans could have said, 'We don’t want anything to do with it." I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn't see it that way because I'm in a different place."

On being fearful of love again:

"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."

On her new extra slim body:

"I don't know if there's something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life!" she laughs. "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."

This crazy broad will forever

This crazy broad will forever be alone with her stank attitude. She's the type to throw stones then hide her hands, don't believe me ask Drake and Chris Brown. I still don't understand why 2 guys would fight over high priced cajun pu$$y because clearly she got the last laugh. Can't wait for her "reign" to be over.

I generally like her, but she

I generally like her, but she needs to come off that innocent crap. She was beatin the crap out of Chris and destroying his property waaaaaay before he finally hit her back! Chris' mother said she was at the house the day she went on a rampage smashin' shyt.

Oh yea she used to throw down

Oh yea she used to throw down Chris flat screen TV and when he would replace it she would get mad and brake it again. Yes little Miss Rainshine is violent. That's something her grandmother died knowing that her granddaughter was a very violent person because Rihanna used to do shit in front of Chris family & her family.Rihanna own aunt said that she saw Rihanna after the incident and told reporters that her face did not look like that picture and that she had a small tiny mark on her face.

You know this because you

You know this because you were there in the room with them, right?

I like you even more now

I like you even more now Rihanna. I hope you and Chris get back together. You should have stayed with that Sexy ass Matt Kemp. That was a real man for you. Plus you gone have to stop fucking Jigga, he's getting too old for you. I know, you have to do what Beyonce isn't capable of but you have to let him go Girl.

Honey Matt was just using

Honey Matt was just using Rihanna. He had no respect for her and was in it because he thought she could get him endorsements. After nothing happened he left her ass for a big ass bit tits dark female. Her skim looked so smooth and she was fine as hell. So Rihanna staying with Matt lol

I know what its like to fall

I know what its like to fall in love with a person who is wrong for you but she can and does deserve better, but hard to move on

I wish she would just stop! I

I wish she would just stop! I mean seriously just stop already. You are not suffering in the love department when you are exposing your body to the world every chance you get. You have slept with several men and probably women since Chris Brown. Stop acting like you are just so distraught. I mean just stop it! Every time she does an interview she is this sweet innocent woman on paper. Then you track her life and she is raunchy, rude, disrespectful, vulgar, whorish, wild, and just any negative name you can give to a chick. I'm just so over her acting like the public is so stupid that just because she says it, we believe it. Actions speak louder than words any day of the week. Rihanna is used up, nasty, out of control with her life. Yeah she cleans up nice but normally she is a hott Ghetto drunk, high, mess! sorry but that's what I see, not how I feel.
