COVER GIRL: RIHANNA

RIHANNA COVERS THE NEW ISSUE OF ELLE LOOKING GORGEOUS, IN A BEAUTIFUL SEQUINCE PURPLE AND GOLD DRESS. SHE TALKED TO THE MAG ABOUT HER STYLE, FAVORITE DESIGNERS AND HER PAST AND PRESENT BOYFRIEND.

On the past year (Chris Brown): “A year ago, I was very confused. Because he was my best friend. All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives—not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him—it was either-or. I just didn’t want to feel the pain, the confusion.”

I 'M SURE THAT INCIDENT IS LIKE A GHOST CONSTANTLY HAUNTING THEM BOTH. I'M HAPPY THAT SHE'S MOVED ON AND

WORD IS HE HAS TOO

. HONESTLY I FEEL BAD FOR THEM BOTH. RIHANNA WILL BE LEFT WITH EMOTIONAL SCARS, AS WELL AS CHRIS. I'M NOT ONE TO HOLD A GRUDGE AGAINST ANYONE, WITH THE TALENT HE HAS I HOPE HIS CAREER WILL BE ABLE TO RECOVER, AS FAR AS RIHANNA IS OBVIOUS SHE'S DOING JUST FINE.
