Rihanna scores Vogue hat-trick

Rihanna has revealed she is still in disbelief over her level of fame, as she graced the cover of Vogue for the third time in four years.

The Diamonds singer, who will celebrate her 26th birthday on February 20, admitted she isn't comfortable with her celebrity status.

"I never wanted to be famous. I just wanted my music to be heard all over the world. Then it happened and the fame came with it. I can't ever imagine feeling used to it," she said.

"I love singing. I love it, and it doesn't feel like a chore. It's an expression."

Rihanna - who previously featured on the November 2012 and April 2011 editions - sported a pixie cut, which complemented her outfit, comprising of a pair of faded, embellished jeans and a mesh fringe top by Louis Vuitton on the March issue.

She also discussed her love for menswear from a young age.

"I love baggy things. I wear men's clothes, men's shoes, oxfords, creepers," she said, adding: " You can do anything with a great jacket, the bigger the better. You can have any silhouette underneath. It gives you an attitude. It makes a gown look cool.

"When I was 13 or 14, I didn't want to wear what my mum wanted me to wear. I was very much a boy in my style, my demeanour. All my friends were guys. I loved things that boys did. I loved being easy with my clothes. I loved wearing hats and scarves and snapbacks on my head.

"It was my way of rebelling. I wanted to dress like my brother. After a while, it was just easier for Mum to dress us both the same. We wore the same jeans, the same T-shirts."
