Rihanna Is One of GQ‘s Men of The Year

Ha ha, not really, but it looks that way at first glance, doesn’t it? This is actually just one of this month’s GQ covers, and Rihanna has one because she was named the “obsession of the year,” which sounds kind of flattering until you realize how creepy it is.

But she did an interview, so let’s look at that now, ok?

On art and slavery: “Sometimes a person looks at me and sees dollars. They see numbers and they see a product, ” she says. “I look at me and see art. If I didn’t like what I was doing, then I would say I was committing slavery. ”

On how she almost got a face tattoo: “The tattoo artist said nope, I’m not gonna do it,” she says, “because if you’re looking at your face, it’s right there staring at you.”

On what turns her on: “I like to feel like a woman,” she says. “I have to be in control in every other aspect of my life, so I feel like in a relationship, like I wanted to be able to take a step back and have somebody else take the lead. I could absolutely be dominant. But, in general, I’d rather… How do I say this in like a…non-X-rated version?  Love makes you go places you probably wouldn’t ever go, had it not been for love. But I think everybody still has their limits.”

On that fight between Chris Brown and Drake: “There’s no proof of that being for my love. That’s my answer to that question.”

The interviewer also wrote that after the interview, he went to a club with Rihanna and Chris Brown showed up too. The guy’s kind of vague about it, but he says that Rihanna and Chris were giving each other “flirtatious glances” for a while and obviously “dancing with each other from afar.” He said that she looked “like she’s just getting started,” and then the article ends, probably because the writer didn’t want to be like “I think they went to the bathroom to bang, but I can’t verify that.”

But those quotes, huh? Face tattoos, honestly. She would. And “I look at me and see art.” I didn’t think Rihanna was that type of “artist,” but here we are. Ugh.

Quotables: Give Chris Brown And Rihanna A Chance

“Me and her have history, and me and her are definitely always going to be best of friends. We’re working on our friendship now. As far as our personal life, I think people just got to give it a chance — or not even give it a chance, but shut the hell up. It’s me. At the end of the day, whatever opinion they have ain’t going to change nothing I’m doing.”

- Chris Brown talks about his “friendship” with Rihanna.

Really, it’s just annoying that they keep saying this kind of stuff. They’ve been “working on their friendship” forever now, and frankly, I’m just sick of that phrasing. Working on a friendship does not mean oral sex. Please just stop.

Oh, and the latest real life event between these two? They have a song together on Rihanna’s new album. It’s called “Nobody’s Business,” which I think really just says it all. But just in case it doesn’t, here’s a little preview of the song:

And here’s what Rihanna had to say about the song:

“‘Nobody’s Business’ is basically the way I look at everything regarding my personal life. Even though you have to witness it as being documented at every second, it still is mine…When it [comes] to my music, I’ll give and I’ll give and I’ll give. I just feel like I need to keep a little bit for me that I get to decide.”

But Rihanna, is it about your relationship with Chris Brown?

“If I had it my way, it would be really nobody’s business.”

Got it, girl. It ain’t nobody’s bidness, just yours and your babeh. Carry on.

Rihanna’s New Video Is Totally About Chris Brown

I know, I know. Another story about the mysterious, stupid romance of Rihanna and Chris Brown. But at least this one has horses and diamonds. That’s something, right?

Ok, look. The horses represent both Rihanna and Chris, see? And the diamonds she smokes, they represent their relationship, which is both beautiful and hard. And they got high a lot. Oh, and that mysterious tattooed arm in the video? That could actually be Chris Brown’s arm. No, his literal arm. Scandalous.

But in any case, the video has pretty water – doesn’t swimming in warm water sound just so perfect right now? – and lots of slow motion horse shots, so there’s something for everyone, now isn’t there?
