RIHANNA Covers VANITY FAIR Italia
I know. I know.
Just a short time ago I made mention that Rihanna covers the hell of out magazine covers so much that it’s getting redundant but hey, lest you not forget her most recent score with Dior was more than just another cover.
Are we cool on that?

May I interest you in another cover?

Hey. Don’t kill the messenger:
You can take Rihanna home straight from the newstands by which she graces the cover of Vanity Fair Italia (just waiting to be thrown in your living room’s book rack all pretty-like, right?).
Rihanna‘s rash of media coverage continues with the release of rockin’ Robin’s 8th studio album and release of her new Dreamworks animated movie “Home,” and here are a few highlights of her interview in the mag-discussing her “Home” character Tip.”
How she and ‘Tip’ are kindred spirits:
“Tip is strong, independent. Not to be discouraged, [but] she knows what she wants and never gives up [and] without waiting for the help of others. She’s a little cheeky as I was however: sensitive. It sounds strange, but I’m very shy. I can be only spontaneous if I’m fine with those around me.”
How ‘Tips’ mom and her own mom are kindred spirits:
“I recognize a lot in the relationship between Tip and her mother. My mom is a force of nature. I know that everyone says ‘I have the best mother in the world.’ But I’m really convinced. She has always filled me with affection and has never tried, nor has judged my friends. Her presence reassures me. I’m glad it was Jennifer Lopez who got to be the voice of my character’s mother. When she speaks, I feel the same warmth and the same security that my own mother gives me.”
How ‘Home’ the movie is synonymous with what home means to her:
“Home, in the film, is all about reuniting with the people you love. For me, they are always around-the lifeline. When I return in the evening to my hotel room [is the] TV: news, reality shows, movies, documentaries, cartoons. I learned to call any place where I feel safe as home. But there is no place like Barbados. My beaches, my family, my food, my music. Home, for me, it’s right there.”
