Rihanna will appear on seven different Complex magazine covers for the publication's upcoming February/March issue where she is speaking up about her obsession with Instagram and why her relationship with Chris Brown is still nobody's business.
Rihanna, 24, released her seventh studio album titled "Unapologetic" at the end of 2012. While the media has followed her career that has resulted in 26 million album sales and earned her an estimated $53 million last year, the Barbadian singer told Complex that she enjoys expressing herself through her Instagram account.
So far, Rihanna has shared over 200 images of herself on the picture-sharing website, admitting that it may make her seem self absorbed. However, she told the publication that Instagram allows her to share another aspect of her personality with fans.
"It's narcissistic, but whatever -- everyone does it. I'm capturing personality... Everybody has their thing they like or don't like to see," Rihanna told Complex. "It's all in your head. That's why people take their own pictures, because it's difficult for someone else to capture what you seek."
Lately, the singer has not been shy about sharing images of herself and singer Chris Brown. While the 23-year-old singer was once her love interest before assaulting her in 2009, many have questioned if they have reconciled their romance after the pair's recent outings with one another.
While Brown appeared on Rihanna's recent "Unapologetic" album for a duet called "Nobodies Business", her manager Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith, explained that he and Roc Nation label head Jay-Z made the pair come together on the track.
"The-Dream didn't write it for them as a duet. Jay-Z and I were in the car together listening to the song, and we thought it would be a great duet," Smith told Complex. "It sounds dope. It feels good. That's how Chris ended up on the song."
Despite the duet and recent outings with Brown, it does not seem Rihanna is ready to publicly speak about the context of her relationship. When asked why she recorded the duet with Brown if she did not want to conduct interviews about him, the singer was not ready to reveal details about her possible reconciliation.
"It's a fun record that The-Dream wrote and we loved the lyrics," Rihanna told Complex. "You're still asking me questions about it so clearly you don't know."
However, some fans questioned the singer's intentions after she refused to go into detail about Brown.
"Remember when Rihanna was on Oprah talking about her relationship with Chris Brown," one fan questioned. "Remember her new song called 'Nobody's Business'?"
Another person seemed to think Rihanna's refusal to speak about Brown was all a publicity stunt.
"She says 'ain't nobody's business'. That's a double negative. Therefore making it everyone's business," the person tweeted. "She planned this."
