In honor of her seventh studio album, Unapologetic, Complex Magazine revealed seven covers featuring non other than the bad girl herself, Rihanna. The multiple cover shoot was photographed by Zoe McConnell and inside the singer revealed details about her beloved Instagram account, collaborations with Chris Brown, the 777 Tour and much more.

According to Complex, Rihanna has 4.3 million followers on Instagram and has taken over 230 self portraits. “Get a good light,” she advises. “Get a good angle on what’s working for you that day… If it’s boobs, make sure you hit that. If it’s face, make sure it’s fierce,” she continued with her self-portrait pointers.

For many, I can bet that was valuable instruction. To read the full story and view all of the photos, visit Complex Magazine online.

New Videos – Rihanna + Beyonce

Rihanna gives us a new video for her new single and one of my favorite songs, “Cheers (Drink to that)” from her latest album, LOUD. The video features moments from her world tour and personal time this summer. Evan Rogers and Ciarra Pardo directed the video.

Queen B also released a visual for one of her favorite songs, “1+1”. She directed the video along with Laurent Briet and Ed Burke.  We can expect more videos from B, as Columbia Records has said that this is the first of many to be released. They plan to visually tell the 4 story.

Rihanna for VITA COCO

The nation’s best-selling coconut water, VITA COCO announced that Rihanna will be featured in the company’s summer ad campaign which will be seen around the world.

Rihanna is a natural fit for the Vita Coco brand and I’m so happy to have her on the team,” said Madonna, an investor in the beverage brand. Rihanna also feels it is a good fit for her. “I love Vita Coco! It’s real coconut water from hand-picked coconuts. It’s delicious and so good for you!” says Rihanna.

Honestly, I hate coconuts but these ads and the press behind them make me want to at least give it try…like one sip.

Rihanna Opens Up in Rolling Stone Magazine

On the April cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, you can find pop diva, Rihanna with spicy red hair, model 101 chin on shoulder pose, and barely there short shorts. The singer opens up about Chris Brown and her sex life…juicy.

Lifting the restraining order:

“That’s my decision. It doesn’t mean we’re gonna make up, or even talk again. It just means I didn’t want to object to the judge. We don’t have to talk ever again in my life. I just didn’t want to make it more difficult for him professionally. What he did was a personal thing – it had nothing to do with his career. Saying he has to be a hundred feet away from me, he can’t perform at awards shows – that definitely made it difficult for him.”

On her single, “S&M”:

“Being submissive in the bedroom is really fun. You get to be a little lady, to have somebody be macho and in charge of your shit. That’s fun to me…I like to be spanked. Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned – you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs. I’d rather have him use his hands.”

I think it’s great when celebrities open up, not completely but just enough to show their fans they are human and can relate to some of the fans’ life experiences. Good for Rihanna for opening up to her fans.
