In her spread Rihanna opens up about her fear of falling in love again.

“When I was in love, I fell so hard,” Rihanna told the magazine. “I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again.”
