Rihanna Lands Her Second American Vogue Cover
The rumours have proven true: Rihanna has landed the November cover of Vogue. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz, the oft-controversial songstress poses on piles of hay and dusty desert floors at the Tejon Ranch in Lebec, California (wearing dresses costing five-figures, of course). It's her second time covering Anna Wintour's glossy, having posed all Little Mermaid-like for the April 2011 issue. Although she appears pretty sullen and uncomfortable on the cover, the cover line reads, "Red-Hot Rihanna: 'I Love To Have Fun.'" That we knew, considering her consistent appearance in tabloid headlines for supposedly getting kicked out of a London club for dancing on a glass table. Most recently the headlines focused on her supposed lip-lock with... yup, you guessed it: Chris Brown. The Vogue article does make mention of Rihanna's ex-boyfriend, who pleaded guilty to assaulting her in 2009 and has since worked on rebuilding their relationship. But Vogue takes a fairly non-confrontational approach to the whole issue. "They haven't seen any progress in our friendship," Rihanna says of those who criticise her relationship with the abusive Brown. "They can't see what I see, unless they're sitting in my point of view." Also, that "I Love To Have Fun" headline really just makes no sense.
