Rihanna covers Harper’s Bazaar, and opens up about the “pain” after splitting from Chris Brown

In Harper’s Bazaar’s August cover story, Rihanna opens up about her rebellious side, and being afraid of letting people get to close to her (after her split from Chris Brown).

She doesn’t actually name Chris in the article, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out who she’s talking about. She admits to being  “rebellious through my music, through my fashion, tattoos, and my hair. I have been conservative in my love life… it’s pretty much nonexistent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just—I don’t let people in.”

However, the 24-year-old still racks up the drama in the tabloids with her infamous ex, Chris Brown. While she wanted to choose someone “shocking” to collaborate on the remix of her song “Birthday Cake,” she says she had no idea of the backlash it would cause. “The fans could have said, ‘We don’t want anything to do with it,’” she says. But she makes one concession: “I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it. But I didn’t see it that way because I’m in a different place.”

Rihanna tells Bazaar that she has yet to open up again in relationships, after being so badly hurt in the past. “When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”

Although she may be cautious in love, Rihanna continues to push the boundaries of personal style—the singer has recently stunned in everything from lowcut Armani dresses to slouchy Stella McCartney jumpsuits. At her shoot for Harper’s Bazaar, shot by Camilla Akrans, Rihanna glows in gowns by Tom Ford and Calvin Klein. And her body? Sleeker than ever. “I don’t know if there’s something going on with my body right now, but I’m eating everything in life!” she laughs. “I miss my ass. It just went away! I need a butt. I have an idea of one, but it’s not living up to its full potential right now.”

There is no doubt that Rihanna is living up to her potential—she has her prized “swagger” in spades. But despite all she has achieved, she is far from done. “I’m still in denial that I’ve proved that, so I have to continue,” she says. “I will not lose.”

I can see how Rihanna is scared to fall in love again! Look what happened to her last time!  It would be hard for anyone to get over what she went through. Would be very difficult to have a “normal” relationship after something like that happens!

Tony Parker files a $20 million lawsuit against the club where the Chris Brown/Drake fight went down. Seriously Tony!?

This story makes me crazy.

Tony Parker happened to have been at the NYC club where Chris Brown and Drake got into a fight, the same night the melee went down.

Tony is alleging that he was in the club that night, and during the fight, he suffered a scratched retina. The suit filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Thursday holds the W.i.P club’s owners and operators in SoHo responsible for a ‘corneal laceration of the left eye and other injuries,’ according to the New York Post.

The San Antonio Spurs guard (and Eva Longoria’s ex) claims the club was negligent in security, allowing the fight to take place. “The defendants were reckless, careless and negligent in permitting Drake’s entourage and Brown’s entourage to be in the club at the same time despite known tension between the two,” the suit says.

Chris Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard were among eight injured during the fight inside the club last week which was reportedly over Drake and Brown’s ties to singer Rhianna.

‘She’s been known, like Helen of Troy, to cause trouble,’ Parker’s lawyer David Jaroslawicz told the Post about Rihanna.

Police say members of Drake’s entourage stopped Brown as he was leaving. The fight escalated and bottles were thrown.

In a press conference last week in France, Parker wore sunglasses over what he says was a ‘therapeutic’ contact lens.

He says he expects to be sidelined for about a week thanks to his injury while his French team prepares for the Summer Olympics.

‘So I’ll be missing the start of the French team because I can’t do anything for a week except keep the lens in and then take drops,’ he said.

‘I’ll be missing the start of the French team because I can’t do anything for a week except keep the lens in and then take drops’

There was no answer at phone numbers listed as affiliated with those named in the lawsuit.

The owners of the club, which had temporarily closed due to violations discovered by the New York Police Department during their handling of the incident, told TMZ they have not been served with any papers yet.

The 30-year-old said he expects to be able to line-up with his teammates in London, saying there, he’s lucky.

‘The cornea has been touched. I can’t do anything for seven days.

‘But I was lucky. The injury won’t prevent me from competing in the Olympics in any way.’

Suing for $20 million over a scratched cornea?! I’ve had a scratched cornea before – and it sucks, but it goes away. Much like a hangnail. You put some drops in – and voila! You’re all better!

Just seems like a lame excuse to SUE someone, IMO.

What do you think?

PS: Here’s a picture from the scene of the crime after the fight broke up.

PIC: Rihanna gets a new tattoo – her 16th!

Rihanna has gotten another tattoo, her 16th! The singer posted a picture of her new ink, a falcon on her ankle, on her Instagram page on Saturday. She wrote “Falcon: a light that shines in the darkness! Never close their eyes during sleep.”

The tattoo was done by her favorite artist, Bang Bang, in NYC.

“[She decided to get it] the night of, but has been thinking about it for years,” Bang Bang, who adds that this tattoo covers up one of her previous tattoos, making it No. 16, tells Us Weekly. “It’s the first tattoo she wanted as a teen. She wanted it across her back back then.”

The Manhattan-based tattoo artist adds that the 24-year-old “Where Have You Been” singer always knows the next step in her body art lineup. “We always do that part together,” Bang Bang tells Us. “We must have gone over hundreds of tattoo ideas together over the years.”

The Barbados beauty’s decision for new ink comes almost 48 hours after her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown and Drake, along with their posses, got into a serious brawl at a Manhattan nightclub early Thursday morning.

Rihanna “got text messages from everybody telling her what happened right after it went down,” a source explained to Us. “She just laughed. She’s spoken to both of them and just thinks it’s crazy. She’s glad she wasn’t there though!”

Meanwhile an observer tells Us of the scuffle, “Chris and Drake never got in each other’s faces. “It was entourage versus entourage, never Drake versus Chris.” (Eva Longoria’s ex-husband, Tony Parker, who was partying with Brown that night, suffered a scratched retina from the brawl.)

Here are some new pictures of Rihanna in NYC.

PICTURE: Drake attacks Chris Brown over Rihanna in nightclub last night, Brown leaves bleeding!

Chris Brown received a nasty gash on his chin last night after Drake’s entourage allegedly attacked him in a NYC nightclub.

According to TMZ, the NYPD confirms the two singers’ crews got into a fight at WIP nightclub where 5 people were injured. Police received the call between 4 and 5am. When police arrived, Drake and Chris Brown had already split.

After the fight, Brown tweeted this photo, saying “How u party wit rich n**** that hate? Lol… Throwing bottles like girls? #shameonya!.” Chris took the picture down, but not before people saw it and saved it.

Sources say the whole thing started when Drake and Chris arrived at the same nightclub. Chris ordered Drake a bottle of expensive champagne and had it sent to his table. Drake returned the bottle with a note – something about Rihanna. (It’s been a rumor for some time that Drake and Rihanna are either hooking up – or on the verge of hooking up.)

As soon as Chris got the champagne and note back, chaos ensued – which ended with a whole group of people fighting. Here’s more from MediaTakeOut: just learned that rapper Drake and his entourage got into a FIGHT… with CHRIS BROWN at the popular AFTER HOURS NYC nightclub WIP.

According to MULTIPLE snitches inside, Chris and Drake have had a DIFFICULT relationship since three years ago – when Rihanna CHEATED on Chris, with Drake. Chris has HELD A GRUDGE against Drake for years.

Well last night at WIP, we’re told that Chris reportedly sent over a bottle of champagne to Drake’s table, as a sort of peace offering. We’re not sure WHAT happened next, but we’re hearing UNCONFIRMED REPORTS that Drake sent the bottle back to Chris with a message to the effect of – “I’m f*ckng the love of your life [Rihanna], deal with it.”

Whatever message Drake sent back caused Chris to immediately fly into a rage – and he CONFRONTED Drake and his entourage – which included ANOTHER Chris Brown rival, rapper Meek Mill. Meek Mill also had a relationship with Rihanna.

Well according to our snitch, Drake PUNCHED Chris in the face and before Chris could retaliate, someone (#teamnosnitch#) popped Chris in the mouth with a BOTTLE, multiple times. And as a result, Chris was LEAKING LIKE A FAUCET!!!

Security immediately swooped in and broke up the fight. Drake and ‘em immediately LEFT the club, before POLICE arrived. Chris, we’re told left under his own power – and later went to the HOSPITAL, to get his face sewn shut.

When police arrived – they made no arrests.

A few hours before the brawl, TMZ shot footage of Drake leaving the London hotel … surrounded by his bodyguards.

Sounds like Drake was probably the instigator in this one, but I’m not going to lie…. I kind of like the fact that Chris had his ass handed to him. Being hit in the face doesn’t feel so good – does it?

Another thing worth noting: we’ve all seen the pictures of what Chris Brown did to Rihanna’s face. What he did to her – was disgusting – and I’d want to beat his face in too, if I were dating Rihanna. Then Chris goes and Tweets a picture of his “battered” face on Twitter like he’s been brutally attacked. I just say Karma’s a bitch. You probably deserved what you had coming.

The deleted Twitpic of Chris Brown’s face is a bit squeamish – so I put it below. Click on it if you want to see.
