Rihanna Purchases 12-Bedroom Hollywood Mansion
Rihanna's moving on up! But not to the east side. No, her piece of the pie is a 12-bedroom mansion in the Hollywood Hills, complete with a gun chandelier in the living room, and a room dedicated to reggae legend Bob Marley.
The singer told Vogue magazine she'd been looking at the place for almost a year, finally deciding to buy it even though it was outside of her planned spending range. In a wide-ranging interview and cover story for the venerable magazine's 'Shape' issue, the singer also talked about feeling sexy for the first time, as well as the evolution of her fashion sense.
She also discuss her father's continued absence from her life -- which hit her hard after her much-publicized assault at the hands of former lover Chris Brown. "He [Rihanna's father] never called to find out how I was doing, if I was alive, nothing. He went straight to the press and got a check. It really makes me question what I have become to my father."
But back to happier thoughts: Rihanna's North American Tour, in support of her current album 'Loud,' kicks off June 4 in Baltimore. You can get all the dates on her official Website.
