Rihanna's Elle UK quadruple-cover is impressive on its own, but the entire spread shot by none other than Mariano Vivanco is the real deal. Ri Ri rocks a mask, a checkered look, and a dress for the magazine, showing off her many tattoos. In the interview, she tells Elle, "My best friend is Chris [Brown]. Now that we're adults we can do this right." She also says that she will have at least one child. Whether or not you plan to read the whole story, check out the photos and prepare to be stunned. 

If that's not enough Rihanna (is there even such a thing?), check out our February/March 2013 cover story with her...selfies included.
