Rihanna has seven covers for the upcoming issue Feb/March of Complex magazine, in honor of her releasing her seventh studio album. Rihanna interview with Complex at her favorite restaurant, Giorgio Baldi, in Santa Monica where she talked about her album, her Instagram page, her relationship with Chris Brown, and more. Check out the pictures and her interview below….

On her Instagram page:

“It’s narcissistic, but whatever—everyone does it,” she says. “I’m capturing personality… Everybody has their thing they like or don’t like to see. 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.”

On how her followers view her Instagram page:

“People take the little bit of information they’re fed, and they draw a picture of who you are,” she says. “Most of the time it’s wrong.”

On racking up 12 No. 1 singles in the US—the youngest solo artist to do so:

“It’s all about growth.”

On her latest album:

“When I was making this record I had no intention except the truth. So whatever is there is real. It’s raw. That’s why the album is called Unapologetic”. “I held back before. I didn’t show a lot of myself. I was very guarded, I needed to be open and free and fearless. Basically say, ‘Fuck it.’ What’s the worst that can happen? They’ll hate me? They’ve done that before.”

On her hit single Diamonds:

“It was so inspiring and uplifting,” she says. “It was giving me hope, that song. I was tired of angry love songs. Love doesn’t always have to be about breakups, and ‘We’re never going to be together again.’ It could be sweet. It could be, ‘Hell yeah! We’re diamonds!’”

On her “Nobody’s Business,” her duet with Brown:

“It’s nobody’s business”
