Ri keeps it real for Vogue.
Rihanna covers the March 2014 issue of Vogue magazine photographed by David Sims.
On her painful fashion choices: “It’s not about pain. It’s about the commitment. I say to myself, ‘I want to look like this,’ and worry about the pain later. I’ve had nights I had to tiptoe home and the balls of my feet wouldn’t even allow me to stand.”
On being a rebel: “I don’t go out of my way to be a rebel or to have that perception. But a lot of the decisions I make, a lot of the direction I want to move, is against the grain, or against society’s tight lane, and I’m aware of that sometimes. It might not be fitting with the norm, but that’s OK for me.”
On her love for Instagram: “Instagram is my way of communicating to the world. When I’m on tour, I keep fans in the loop. I don’t really think about it too much. Literally, I can be sitting in a car and be bored, so I do a selfie just because I’m bored. Or if my dog is running around in circles and I think that’s funny, I put it on Instagram.”

And by that we mean this editorial has less artifice and grandiosity than the last Ri/Vogue joint. This time, it seems like the goal was to let Ri be Ri. Which is fine in theory because she has an amazing face and the ability to know how to use it, but the cover shot doesn’t look so great to us and we’re not in love with the clothes they put her in. The only shot/garment we like is that last one of her face in the Saint Laurent. She can give FACE like a superstar.
