While[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Rihanna[/lastfm] will always be red-hot to us (regardless of her hair color), the scantily-clad farmer-frustrater of “We Found Love” fame rocked a platinum blonde Marilyn Monroe-esque do for the cover of Vogue UK.
[pullquote quote=”The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me and being a role model became more of my job than I wanted it to be.” credit=”Rihanna”]Vogue covers are pretty iconic in the fashion industry and Rihanna’s is in perfect timing with the release of her sixth studio album out November 21st.
Head below to catch a few quotes and to see another pic of Rihanna from the mag.
According to Idolator, RiRi used Vogue as a platform to vent on how she doesn’t want to be viewed as a role model. Says Rihanna (via The Sun):
“See, people — especially white people — they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead. The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me and being a role model became more of my job than I wanted it to be.”
“But no, I just want to make music. That’s it. Look, God doesn’t give any more than you can handle. I had to get through a lot of ups and downs – big downs – and a lot of trial and error to get where I am now.”
