*In an interview for the August issue of UK Cosmopolitan, Rihanna opens up about what turns her on, how guys have to “earn it” and more.

And of course, no interview would be complete without the mention of Chris Brown.

With a number of high profile hookups since the Brown beating, from baseball stars to rappers, Rihanna claims she is now “ready for love” and knows what she wants.

“I’m turned on to a guy by different things. It could be the way he looks. It could be his intelligence. It’s really a spontaneous thing,” she tells Cosmo.

Winning her heart, though, isn’t all chance; when it comes down to it, the singer wants a man who will show that he’s serious.

“But guys should have to earn it. Because the minute they get it, they want something else,” she explains. “Men are like hunters: they like the chase. So you have to keep ’em guessing. Actually, I’m like that too. I get bored quickly. So if someone can make me laugh, that’s the best.”

Rihanna also talks about her painful relationship with Chris Brown.

“It was a very aggressive and defensive time, and that allowed me to start not giving a sh*t. I walked around with a very f**k-you attitude,” Rihanna says. “I’ve always been good at masking my emotions. For me, it’s tougher to be vulnerable than to be tough.”
