Wearing the same Gucci Spring 2010 white cut-out dress which Jennifer Lopez wore to the AMA’s, Rihanna looks gorgeous on the cover of W’s February 2010 edition.

The rest of her editorial sees her wearing Michael Kors, Prada and Christian Dior.

Obviously the subject her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown comes up in the interview which she answers honestly. Plus she talks about her new album, having to mature at an early age and SNL’s comedy skit on domestic violence.

You can read the whole interview at WMagazine.com, but below are a few extracts.

On the tone of Rated R: “This was a different type of record for me. . . . It was really personal; it was from me in the most authentic way. It’s like a movie in that when I was making this album, every day I was in a different mood. Sometimes I was p*ssed off, sometimes I was miserable, and every song brings out a different story.!”

On her preternatural maturity: “I’ve been paying my own bills since I was 17, living in a foreign country. And I’ve always been a little older than my real age. People always said that to me, and I always felt that in my head”.

On SNL’s domestic violence skit: “Violence should of course be avoided at any cost, but Saturday Night Live is a show that finds humor in every serious situation, so it wasn’t offensive to me in any way”.

On how she handles herself after the assault: “At first I completely shut down. But now I feel like this happened to me so I could be a voice for young girls who are going through what I went through and don’t know how to talk about it. . . . It’s not about Chris, about hurting him or sabotaging his career. I don’t care about that part of it”.

On early signs of trouble with Chris: “There were control issues, insecurity. When people are insecure they become very controlling and they can get very aggressive and in turn abusive. It doesn’t have to be physical. Like they would say bad stuff to you to make you feel lesser than them just so they would have control in the relationship. It takes a big toll on your emotions and on your everyday life. It changes you”.
