PAPER MAGAZINE – It’s been almost ten years since Rihanna first graced our cover back in August 2007. It was right when she’d released her explosive third album Good Girl Gone Bad featuring the smash single “Umbrella.” Back then, just like her album’s title implies, Rihanna was at a turning point in her career, starting to break out of the glossy, pop princess mold and find her voice and her unique sense of style. “[Good Girl Gone Bad] really represents my liberation,” she told our writer Bevy Smith at the time.

In the decade since, she’s certainly found that freedom. She’s dropped five more albums, including last year’s hit Anti; was named CFDA’s Fashion Icon of the Year in 2014 (and accepted the award in that unforgettable, crystal-studded see-through Adam Selman gown); designed two Fenty Puma collections with the athletic brand (and will debut her third in Paris on March 6th); received the MTV Video Vanguard Award last August; and even traveled to Cambridge, MA, earlier this week to accept Harvard’s Humanitarian of the Year Award. And, amidst all this, what’s nearly as remarkable as her creative and professional accomplishments is the fact that she’s remained the cool, DGAF chick who will bring a bedazzled flask to the Grammys and often returns home to Barbados to don a bejeweled bikini and feathered headdress for carnival.

Now, the woman who can do it all is lending her talents to Hollywood; she’s part of the all-female Ocean’s Eight cast, starring alongside acting heavyweights like Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway. For our spring #BreakTheRules cover, our team took inspiration from her budding acting career and chameleon-like powers of transformation to cast her as a high fashion clerk in a bodega of the future. “We thought it would be interesting to put a superstar like Rih in such an everyday surrounding,” says Shannon Stokes, who styled our shoot alongside Farren Fucci. “And Farren added the ‘future’ angle to give it a twist, so it became a challenge to envision what a girl who worked there might look like,” he added.

rihanna-on-set-cuba-red-dress

Barbadian singer Rihanna is currently visiting Cuba for what appears to be recording a music video in various locations in Havana, which is surrounded by heavy security. Click here for photos.

Throughout the day Rihanna was spotted in the El Vedado neighborhood, and visited La Guarida restaurant, where lots of fans waited outside to catch a glimpse of the singer.

Rihanna changed several times for supposedly a photo shoot and moved along with various video equipment, from one side to another in classic American cars of the forties and fifties still circulating in Havana, known as ” almendrones”.

rihanna-bazaar-sharks

Harper’s Bazaar – They say in life we all swim with sharks. But that’s not enough for Rihanna. On the 40th anniversary of Jaws, she faces off with three eight-foot predators in our March 2015 Issue.

Asking someone to jump in a shark tank for the sake of fashion is an exercise in insanity. But Rihanna is not just someone. When I talked to her about the concept last fall, she just thought it was “cool.” (Her team was slightly more anxious.) Cut to the Florida Aquarium in Tampa, one day in December. In the tank live three sand tiger sharks, none shorter than eight feet long. The sharks are used to divers, but photographers and pop stars are another thing entirely.

Photographer Norman Jean Roy donned a scuba suit and jumped in. Rihanna followed—a dozen dives, and three outfit changes, while the sharks circled her intently. When the shoot was done, she was shivering, more cold than “cool.” Then she flew to Germany. Just another day in the life of a global pop star who spends her life swimming with sharks.

LAURA BROWN: Swimming with sharks is not only scary, it’s a big metaphor. How did you learn to swim with the sharks of life?

RIHANNA:
I try my best to avoid the sharks of life, but I have had my share of experiences with them, and in those cases I just have to handle them accordingly. But I do not swim with sharks … sharks swim with sharks.
