Well Hello Rihanna. GQ definitely won’t have any problems selling all of the magazines they printed up this month.
Machine Gun Riri is wearing more tattoos than clothing in her new spread for GQ’s Men Of The Year issue which hits news stands this month. In the new cover story, Ri chops it up with GQ writer Jay Bulger (who spent time with the singer while she was parading around NYC with Chris Brown) about two of her favorite subjects: music and sex. In the interview, she says that while some people just see her as dollar signs, she’s not into making corny music that’s not real and she admits that her highly sexual personality comes from her culture.
Also, if you want to turn her on, you better know how to take control:
On People Seeing Her As Only A Product
Sometimes a person looks at me and sees dollars. They see numbers and they see a product. I look at me and see art. If I didn’t like what I was doing, then I would say I was committing slavery.
I want to make music that’s hopeful, uplifting. Nothing corny or super-sentimental. I just want it to have the feeling that brings you out of whatever you’re going through. I want it to spark that fire. I want it to be real, authentic, and raw.
On Being Highly Sexual
That comes from my culture. That’s just the way it’s always been, and I think that for people, especially in America, they make it like the forbidden fruit, but that only makes kids more curious….I was a lot more naive about the way I moved and the way I was being perceived. The more you hear people talk about ‘Oh, you’re a sex symbol,’ it just makes you think, ‘Why are you saying that?’ And I figured it out.
On Her Turn Ons
I like to feel like a woman. I have to be in control in every other aspect of my life, so I feel like in a relationship, like I wanted to be able to take a step back and have somebody else take the lead.
On if she believes the Drake & Chris’ Bottle Fight Was Because of Her
There’s no proof of that being for my love. That’s my answer to that question.
Vying for that Rihanna love makes you do crazy things.
Just days after Halle Berry’s baby’s father Gabriel Aubry and her fiancé Olivier Martinez got into a brutal fight in her driveway, photos of the damages to Gabe’s face have hit the Internet and let’s just say it looks as though he got the whooping of his life. Since then, Halle has obtained a temporary restraining order against Gabriel which requires him to stay at least 100 yards away from the couple and his daughter, Nahla. Meanwhile, Gabriel filed a restraining order of his own against Olivier, saying that Halle’s man threatened to kill him before he busted his face up at Halle’s house. You can’t make this type of drama up!
According to Gabriel’s statement in his restraining order, it all started when he took Nahla to her school play the day before Thanksgiving and Halle and Olivier showed up. He says that Olivier strolled over to him and whispered in his ear, “I wish I could beat the s–t out of you right now. You’re lucky we’re in a school right now. We’re going to take Nahla right now and you’re not going to follow us.” The next day Gabriel said he was dropping Nahla off at 10 a.m. and instead of the nanny coming to get her, Olivier came out and said, “We need to talk.” That’s when the fight broke out.
Gabriel says he walked toward his car to close his door when Olivier jumped off the stairs and knocked Gabriel to the ground and started brutally beating him while screaming that Gabriel cost them at least $3 million to fight the custody war. (Sidebar: Gabriel has been winning the custody battle so far, being awarded $20,000 in child support and most recently the judge blocked Halle from moving to Paris with Nahla). Gabriel also says that Olivier took his head in his hand and slammed it on the concrete driveway and he screamed that they were going to move to Paris and Gabriel had better move there too or Olivier would kill him. Gabriel claims Olivier then said, “We called the cops,” and that when they show up, “you’re going to tell them that you’re the one who attacked me, or I’m going to kill you.”
Halle’s people still claim Gabriel was the one who started the fight, and officers who responded to the scene say that Gabriel never said anything about being threatened to them in his initial statement immediately after the fight.
It’s safe to say that Halle’s life is going to be a paparazzi-filled nightmare until this fiasco dies down. Gabriel, who models for a living, will definitely be out of work until those bruises heal up and Olivier sounds as though he’s watched one too many mafia movies. It will be interesting to see how all of this gets sorted out.
