    Rihanna Post-Chris Brown: "I Walked Around With a Very F--k-You Attitude"

    **Rihanna Cosmopolitan

    We love us some Rihanna. (Oh, you too?!)

    In the upcoming August issue of Cosmopolitan U.K., the Barbadian beauty talks about what she looks for in a guy, her stand on love and how she dealt with her split from ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

    Here's what she said...

    "I'm open to love. But guys should have to earn it. Because the minute they get it, they want something else," the singer 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."

    So that's what the secret is! Thanks, girl.

    The fierce star also notes that constantly being in the spotlight can dampen the chances of finding a guy who can hang with her lifestyle.

    "It can definitely be intimidating to guys to date someone in this industry," Rihanna says. "It's really hard to find a guy who doesn't care about that stuff. Right now, it's easier just having my career to focus on."

    But at one point, love was her focus, and after breaking apart from Brown, Ri-Ri admits that it took a toll on her emotions.

    "It was a very aggressive and defensive time, and that allowed me to start not giving a s--t. I walked around with a very f--k-you attitude," she says.

    "I've always been good at masking my emotions. For me, it's tougher to be vulnerable than to be tough."

    Preach on, sista.
