Rihanna has been all over promoting her new album, Loud, from performing on The Today Show to releasing a million singles, like “Man Down.” But now RiRi’s opening up about her personal life, too! Rihanna is Cosmopolitan‘s July 2011 cover girl and she’s dishing all about her current love life, how Twitter has helped her open up to her fans and, oh yeah, that whole thing with Chris Brown.

On how the incident with Chris Brown affected her: “There was definitely something subliminal happening. It was coming out in the way I dressed, the way I did my hair, the way I talked, the way I took my pictures, the kinds of pictures I wanted to take. It was a very aggressive and defensive time.”

Her thoughts on Twitter: “I was so against Twitter. I couldn’t understand how people were supposed to care what I was doing at any given moment. Then I started to figure out I can treat it like a giant chat room: I can respond directly to people’s questions. It makes it easier to deal with the flak around you because people have a sense of who you are.”

On her love life: “It can definitely be intimidating to guys to date someone in this industry. And it’s really hard to find a guy who doesn’t care about that stuff. Right now, it’s just easier having my career to focus on.”
