No room for gossip for Rihanna
Rihanna has revealed she refuses to read gossip about herself.
The Talk That Talk singer - who has raised eyebrows over her decision to rekindle her romance with Chris Brown after he assaulted her in 2009 - told V magazine she isn't interested in hearing what people have to say about her any more.
She said: "I don't read it any more. I already have too many voices in my head right now!
"I don't have room for that other stuff. If I let that other stuff in, it'll take the space of productive s**t, and that isn't good."
The star appears in the magazine alongside British model Kate Moss, in a shoot by Mario Testino.
Rihanna said of Kate joining the shoot: "Kate overheard us talking and she said, 'I want to do it with you!' Again, I was like, 'Are you f******g kidding me?'... I was dying on the inside. All my fantasies were coming true: Mario, V, Kate Moss."
The pair appear on the cover of the mag, with Kate perched on a naked Rihanna's lap.
"And that was the best shot... Take her top off and put that b***h on my lap!" the singer said.
