Rihanna lands Vogue cover, opens up about her relationship with Drake, new album, and more.
If there's one thing the majority of warm-blooded hip-hop fans can agree on, it's that the world is a better place with more Rihanna. With buzz of her upcoming album steady building, the talented singer recently landed the June cover of Vogue magazine, where she opened up in an extensive interview. Over the course of the spread, she gave a few insights into her upcoming album, which she describes as a "full-on reggae album." Apparently, Jamaican producer Supa Dups proved a heavy influence throughout the process.
Naturally, we know many of you came for the Drake news, and who are we to rob you of the pleasure? Later on in the interview, which was conducted by Chioma Nnadi, Rihanna opened up about winning the MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which was presented by her ex-boyfriend Drake. Speaking honestly, she revealed that she was uncomfortable by Drake's speech, as she claims to dislike receiving "too many compliments."
When pressed about her current status with Drake, she opted for a proverbial shrug. ""We don't have a friendship now, but we're not enemies either. It is what it is." God's plan.
