Rihanna looks sultry on the August cover of Harper’s Bazaar, which hits newsstands July 17.

The ‘We Found Love’ Singer rocks a snake-like get-up on the cover — and yes for once she’s fully clothed.

Inside the mag, the sultry Camilla Akrans-photographed spread continues, with Rihanna steaming up the glossy pages in lush gowns by Tom Ford and Calvin Klein, and other fierce looks by Balmain and Ralph Lauren.

In the interview, Rihanna opened up about her body, relationships, and the love and pain from her past.

“When I was in love, I fell so hard. I was really, really, really in love. The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again,” she says.

The ‘blink of an eye’ she speaks of is the night before the 2009 Grammy Awards when Brown beat her during an argument in his car. Since then, Rihanna calls her love life “nonexistent.”

“If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out,” she says. “But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just — I don’t let people in.”

She’s also well aware that people were shocked that she would collaborate with Brown on her single, “Birthday Cake” earlier this year, saying she didn’t think it would be that big of a deal.

“I understood that people had every right to be concerned about it,” she says. “But I didn’t see it that way because I’m in a different place.”

“When I was in love, I fell so hard … The way it made me feel was priceless. And in a blink of an eye my whole life changed. Everything that I knew was different. I never thought I’d feel that pain in my life. I’m afraid of feeling that again,” she told Harper’s Bazaar magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The 24-year-old star said she is very “conservative” in her personal life and finds it hard to trust people.

“I have been conservative in my love life … it’s pretty much non-existent. If I come across someone who I find really cool, I’ll hang out. But the minute I find that we’re getting too close I just – I don’t let people in,” she said.
