RiRi covers the January 2011 issue of British GQ Magazine and talks about her new red-hot sexy image, leaving Chris Brown and her new album ‘Loud’.

“Sometimes when you’re on the inside of a relationship like that, you can’t see it clearly for what it is. I left – it was the best feeling. It was so freeing…I witnessed it happening to my mom and I said I would never let that happen to me – and then it was happening. Now, when I look back, it bugs me out that I couldn’t see it for what it was.”
