ELLE turned the tables and invited some of Rihanna’s famous friends and fans—Tyra Banks, Eminem, April Bloomfield, Zac Posen, Pharrell Williams and more—to share the questions they were dying to ask the global megastar:
David Copperfield, Magician: I’m not kidding, this is a real offer: I can make you disappear and reappear anywhere in the world. Where do you want to go, and why?
Rihanna: Ten minutes before I lost my virginity…and I’m holding you to that offer. LOL.
Plus, she offers her insight on beauty as the brain behind her new makeup line:
ELLE: When did you first wear lipstick?
Rihanna: Lipstick always got me in trouble. Whether it was at home as a kid, or my early teenage years in my career, I always had the urge to wear it. So I broke all those rules. Now lipstick is like my li’l secret weapon!
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done/tried for beauty? Would you do it again?
A corset! I’d do it again, though. I’d wear it every day if I could make it out alive!
