We had a sneak peek at Rihanna's sexy cover for Rolling Stone earlier this week, and the magazine has revealed new behind-the-scenes footage, more images from the pop star's spread, and several quotes from her incredibly honest interview. Rihanna wasn't afraid to open up about her steamy sexual preferences, naughty photos, and how she coped after being attacked by Chris Brown. She said:
- On the inspiration behind her hit song "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."
- On why she likes sending naughty pictures: "When you're not with the person you want to be intimate with, a picture is the next best thing. Well, Skype is safer. But a picture lasts a long time. When you're alone, and those horny moments come up, pictures can be very handy. I haven't gotten a d*ck picture in a long time. I think people are a little afraid. It can turn out bad."
- On dealing with the Chris Brown attack: "I put my guard up so hard. I didn't want people to see me cry. I didn't want people to feel bad for me. It was a very vulnerable time in my life, and I refused to let that be the image. I wanted them to see me as, 'I'm fine, I'm tough.' I put that up until it felt real."
- On the aftermath of the assault: "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...But you can never please people. One minute I'm being too hard, and the next minute I'm a fool because I'm not being hard enough."
