Music Photos of the Week
October 13: Rihanna tweets out the look of her new Vogue Cover.

Rihanna covers the November issue of Vogue, posing in a wheat field for famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. Dripping in gorgeous red lace, the songstress poses in her new pixie haircut and a 2012 Valentino dress.

Inside the issue, Rihanna wears black leather and lace, posing at California's Tejon Ranch. She opens up about her alleged reconciliation with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, saying that others can't see what she sees when it comes to her friendship with Brown, "unless they're sitting in my point of view."

The "Diamonds" singer also admits to not having been on a "real" date in years. "I have not been on a date in forever. Like two years. Haven't gone to the movies, to dinner. Zero."

She added, "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. … 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."

This marks Rihanna's second U.S. Vogue cover, and the 24-year-old star is hotter than ever, having changed things up since she posed with long red curls in April 2011. Vogue also released a behind-the-scenes look at the 2012 photo shoot -- watch below.

The issue hits newsstands at the end of October, a few weeks before Rih Rih's seventh studio album, "Unapologetic," drops on November 19.
