Rihanna looks totally gorgeous on the cover of Elle's December 2014 issue. Sporting a deep burgundy shade of lipstick, and an edgy, black-and-white outfit, the cover proves that Rihanna can look unreal even with a more simple, understated look.

Although the cover story isn't out for another few weeks, Elle decided to share a few of Rihanna's answers from her Q&A session with the magazine, and we love how honest and upfront she is. From what she feels is most misunderstood about her ("I'm shy") to the sexiest thing a guy has done for her ("Any man that tells me what to do is sexy!") to the last time she was starstruck ("When I met Aaron Paul at the Spike awards") to her ultimate hangover cure ("Ice, Chinese food! And an upside-down trash can and towels, preferably next to the toilet.") -- we love how down-to-Earth she's managed to stay this far along in her career.

Be sure to pick up a copy of the magazine and check out the full interview when it hits newsstands on Nov. 18!
