Rihanna covers for the 2013 April issue of ELLE magazine,she addresses rumors that she’s a druggie while also acknowledging she and Chris Brown’s relationship, which she insists is simply meant to be.
Rih also doesn’t shy away from the fact she’s ready to start her own family in the next few years.
Peep excerpts of the interview below:
On starting a family: “I will probably have a kid. And I’m praying I can go on vacation for a good month. And I’ll have set some things up so I don’t have to tour for the rest of my life, even though I love touring. I want health and happiness in five years. I want to be healthy and happy.”
On the meaning of “Stay”: “[New single Stay] is a story about having love that’s close and wanting it to last forever. You don’t have that feeling with everybody so when you have it you don’t want to let got of it. I would definitely say that he [Chris] is the one I have that kind of relationship with.”
On what’s going on in her life & her tatts: “Everybody wanted to know what was happening in my life. Is she a drug addict? No. Is she an alcoholic? No. Is she a victim? No. That’s when I got the gun. It was a symbol of strength. I’ll never be a victim. That’s why I’m posting pictures of myself smoking pot, to tell the truth about myself. I’ve got so much to think about, why bring all this extra sh-t by being dishonest? Well I Instagram everything about my life, whether it’s smoking pot, in a strip club, reading a Bible verse – how crazy, I know! – or hanging out with my best friend, who happens to be Chris [Brown].”

On what her mom thinks about her bad girl image: “My mom, she went crazy on me. She called me two days ago and reeled me in about two naked pictures [my best friend] Melissa put up on Instagram – a sneak peek from a photo book she’s making about me. I was embarrassed. I felt like I got my ass whupped in front of my class in school! She said, ‘This was, like, a private moment and you’re just parading this around’. She humbled the f-ck out of me. I’m not afraid of any person in this world but her. I’m terrified of her!”
