Rihanna's Sexed Up Complex February/March 2013 Cover Shoot
The "Diamonds" songstress rocked a collection of sexy ensembles for the Zoe McConnell cover shoot while chatting about everything from her Instagram account to her public image.
Highlights from Rihanna's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Complex!
On her childhood:
"We don’t start the trouble, but that’s how we’re defending ourselves—by saying some slick s***. That’s how I’ve always been. I was so rude when I was a little girl. I got my a** beat by my mother for that. Most of the time it was because of my mouth."
On her Instagram account:
"It’s narcissistic, but whatever—everyone does it. I’m capturing personality... Everybody has their thing they like or don’t like to see. It’s all in your head. That’s why people take their own pictures, because it’s difficult for someone else to capture what you seek."
On her public image:
"People take the little bit of information they’re fed, and they draw a picture of who you are. Most of the time it’s wrong."
On her album Unapologetic:
"When I was making this record I had no intention except the truth. So whatever is there is real. It's raw. That's why the album is called Unapologetic."
