riri3 Kelly Rowland joined the list of R&B stars to go topless for Vibe. She joins Keyshia Cole, Ciara and Christina Milian. The new issue is coming out August 16th but heres some excerpts from her feature.

On if she feels more appreciated in Europe
No, not really. People still compare me to B over there. I said in an interview recently, ‘You know, if you guys would be a little bit more intelligent and ask me about myself we’ll have a much better interview.’ You can’t want a story from me and keep asking me about the past.

On if she exhaled when she parted ways with Mathew Knowles
I did, but I also felt like, ‘Oh my God, what have I done?!’ I stayed in the house for two days. I was sad. It was like a funeral. I had to deaden that situation in order to start fresh. That’s a very long time to have the same manager and the same label.

On becoming comfortable with her sexuality
I came into my sexuality while I was recording this album. I can walk into a sex shop now and not worry about what people would say if they saw me in there. [....] I go at the right time. Nighttime. 1 a.m. The really good ones are open that late.
