With her seventh studio album "Unapologetic" set to be released next month, Rihanna garnered herself welcome added exposure by covering the November 2012 issue of Vogue magazine.

The 24-year-old Barbadian songstress looked ravishing in a red Valentino Resort 2012 frock for the Annie Leibovitz shot front page while dishing about everything from music-making and smoking pot to her dating life and ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

A few of the highlights from Rihanna's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Vogue!

On her care-free nature:
“I don’t like to live a calculated life. I don’t do anything for the reaction.”

On her relationship status:
“I have not been on a date in forever. Like two years. Haven’t gone to the movies, to dinner. Zero.”

On her dating desire:
“I would love to go on a date. You don’t think that? I’m a woman. A young woman, vibrant, and I love to have fun. And I have too many v***nas around me at this point. Seriously, all I want is a guy to take me out and make me laugh for a good hour and take my a** back home. He doesn’t even have to come up. All I want is a conversation for an hour.”

On if she thinks she’s going to be talking about Chris Brown for the rest of her life:
“To the world, I feel like there’s no closure. There’s some obsession that’s continued even throughout when we weren’t friends or couldn’t be friends at all. Hated each other. The world hasn’t let go. They haven’t seen any progress in our friendship, because they don’t see anything, really, besides the song.”

On the “Birthday Cake” remix being her idea:
“I didn’t think it could be anything detrimental to my career. I was on a tour bus ride between two cities, listening to my album, thinking, Oooh, maybe I should make this into a duet. And I started coming up with a bunch of people, and his name crossed my mind. I thought, We haven’t made a song in so long together . . . it could be a little shocking.”
