Rihanna Covers Rolling Stone & Speaks On Getting Back With Chris Brown; “Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake”

rihanna-rollingstones-cover

Isn’t she’s a hottie? Rihanna covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine. On the cover, Riri gives us a glamorous close-up shot and let her long hair down with a shaved left side. For her second Rolling Stone cover, the Def Jam singer was shot by famed photographer Terry Richardson. Inside, she opens up about getting back with Chris Brown and dealing with the backlash. Below are some excerpts:

On getting back with Chris Brown and what it means to her public image:

“I decided it was more important for me to be happy,” she tells contributing editor Josh Eells. “I wasn’t going to let anybody’s opinion get in the way of that. Even if it’s a mistake, it’s my mistake. After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash. I can handle it.”

“When you add up the pieces from the outside, it’s not the cutest puzzle in the world,” Rihanna says. “You see us walking somewhere, driving somewhere, in the studio, in the club, and you think you know. But it’s different now. We don’t have those types of arguments anymore. We talk about shit. We value each other. We know exactly what we have now, and we don’t want to lose that.”

He doesn’t have the luxury of fucking up again,” she says. “That’s just not an option. I can’t say that nothing else will ever go wrong. But I’m pretty solid in the knowing that he’s disgusted by that. And I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”

A Shirtless Rick Ross Covers Rolling Stone; Talks Health Issues & Why He Was A Corrections Officers

Big belly rude boy! A shirtless Rick Ross covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine. On the cover, Ross kept it causal in blue jeans accessorized with a Fendi belt for his first cover of the publication. Inside, the Bawse talks about his health issues including the seizures he had and how one of his friends 10-year jail sentenced for trafficking cocaine and heroin helped inspired him to become a corrections officer. Below are some excerpts:

Ross suggests that the seizures he suffered late last year were probably the result of smoking too much weed: “I’m most definitely an avid user, a pothead, however you want to look at it. I call it green caviar. It’s like a short vacation – it helps me chill out. And people really love it when I chill out, because I can really be a dickhead.”

For the first time, Ross talks about his past life as a corrections officer – an opportunity, he says, to “wash my hands” after his best friend was sentenced to 10 years for trafficking cocaine and heroin: “This was my best friend, who I ate peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches with, and pork and beans with, my buddy, my partner, my number-one dude. Suddenly I’m talking to him over federal phone calls. Hearing the way it was building, I knew I couldn’t take nothing for granted,” says Ross. “My homey’s father was a huge influence on my life, too . . . He was the one who was like, ‘Yo, go get a job somewhere, man. Go be a fireman. Or go be a fucking corrections officer. Just go sit down somewhere.”

We Off That: Most Likely Jay-Z Will Not Be Reconciling With Beanie Sigel, Plus He Speaks On Touring & ‘Watch The Throne 2’

Philly’s washed up rapper Beanie Sigel was once signed to Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records in the late 90’s-early 2000’s. For unknown reasons Sigel was dropped from Roc-A-Fella and basically left for dead (without a record deal), which led to Sigel recording diss songs aimed at Jay-Z. However, my idol Jay-Z never replied because Sigel is not on his level. Rolling Stone recently caught up with Jay-Z and asked him if it’s possible that he will reconcile with Sigel during his “Made In America” Music Festival in Philly at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Fairmount Park on September 1 and 2. Jay-Z also spoke about the European leg of his ‘Watch The Throne’ tour with Kanye West and Watch The Throne 2. Below are some excerpts:

In 2005, you performed the second “I Declare War” concert in Philadelphia, ending your feud with Nas. Is there any chance of you doing the same thing in September and reconciling with Beanie? It’s the city of brotherly love, after all. 
Um, I dunno. You know, I haven’t spoken to Beanie, so I don’t know how that plays out. It’s kinda, you know. And I’m going on tour tomorrow, to Europe, so I don’t know how that works.

What new things are you bringing to the European tour, besides converters for the outlets?
I don’t know. I just thought about the flag. It’s a major part of the show. We just gonna have to drop the flag everywhere. Everyone has to know we’re from America – I hope no one boos us.

There are all of these rumors flying around for who you’re working with on Watch the Throne 2. The name Kanye West keeps coming up. How is it different working together in 2012 as opposed to the last go-round? 
I don’t know. We haven’t actually started working on Watch the Throne 2 yet; I had to put that to the side. I had a little interruption on January 7th.

That whole thing.
Yeah, that whole thing. And Kanye’s touring, working on G.O.O.D. Music – which I haven’t heard, but I heard it’s great.

Lil Wayne Covers Rolling Stone; Talks Jail, Miami Heat & More

Young Money/Cash Money recording artist Lil Wayne is covering the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine. In the cover story, Weezy talked about gambling for commisary in jail, expressed his feeling toward LeBron James and Dwayne Wade and talked about the biographies he read while in prison. Read some excerpts from Weezy’s interview with Rolling Stone below.

On Gambling For Commisary

I’d bust a nigga’s ass at Uno,” he told writer Josh Eells. “We gamble for phone time. I’d take nigga’s commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup.”

On LeBron James and Dwayne Wade

When Wayne sat court-side at a recent Miami Heat/New Orleans Hornets game he was upset that Lebron James and Dwayne Wade never came over to talk to him. “Them niggas never speak to a nigga,” he says. “They don’t chuck me the deuce or nothing. Nigga spent all that money on them fucking tickets… Come holla at me. We sit right by them little bitch-ass niggas. At least come ask me why I’m not rooting for you.”

Nicki Minaj Showing Her Ass In The October Issue Of Rolling Stone Magazine

Please check the four side banner ads on the left and take advantage of the exclusive offers.

Young Money femcee Nicki Minaj is featured in the October issue of Rolling Stone magazine. Even though I don’t like Nicki as an artist, I still give her respect for doing a great job at representing female rappers by herself for the last two years and she is doing it at a time when records aren’t selling and labels aren’t  investing in female rappers. Nicki deserves everything that she has and I wish her many more accomplishments.

Nicki Minaj’s debut album Pink Friday will be in stores and online November 23rd.
