Rihanna has been tapped to cover the new October issue of ELLE magazine. This in turn accounts for RiRi’s sixth cover with the publication.
In honor of the occasion, ELLE recruited a number of Rihanna’s famous friends and fans to ask the pop superstar questions. Entries came in from the likes of A$AP Rocky, Olivia Wilde, Danielle Steel, Tyra Banks, Eminem, April Bloomfield, Zac Posen and Pharrell, among others.
Below we’ve highlighted some excerpts from ELLE‘s piece on the Barbados native, as you can look forward to the issue landing on newsstands September 19.
David Copperfield: I’m not kidding, this is a real offer: I can make you disappear and reappear anywhere in the world. Where do you want to go, and why?
Rihanna: Ten minutes before I lost my virginity…and I’m holding you to that offer. LOL.
ELLE: When did you first wear lipstick?
Rihanna: Lipstick always got me in trouble. Whether it was at home as a kid, or my early teenage years in my career, I always had the urge to wear it. So I broke all those rules. Now lipstick is like my li’l secret weapon!
ELLE: What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done/tried for beauty? Would you do it again?
Rihanna: A corset! I’d do it again, though. I’d wear it every day if I could make it out alive!
