Rihanna: ‘I’m Open to Love. But Guys Have to Earn It’
Rihanna's love life is the source of much speculation right now. While it's being reported that she is engaged in a quiet, non-committed relationship with fellow musician Drake, no one is sure of her exact status or what is going on in Rihanna's romantic world.
However, she did comment on the much discussed topic in the August issue of Cosmopolitan UK, which is out on Thursday (July 14), saying, "I'm open to love. But guys have to earn it … Men are like hunters; they like the chase." It's apparent that RiRi subscribes to the Darwinian theory of love and relationships.
She also contended that she loses interest in relationships in fast fashion, saying, "I get bored quickly." She also said that "it's easier just having my career to focus on." However, she isn't shut off or shut down from the possibility of love. "I'm turned on to a guy by different things," she adds. "It could be the way he looks. It could be his intelligence. It’s really a spontaneous thing."
Rihanna also addressed having a softer side, admitting, "For me, it’s tougher to be vulnerable than to be tough." Somewhere, there's a man out there who can crack the shell Rihanna has developed about relationships. Maybe it's Drake? Maybe not. Perhaps she is still smarting from her much-publicized split with Chris Brown. Maybe her great loves are in front of her, waiting to be found. At least she is open to the idea.
