Leave it to Rihanna to lay it all out on the table.

The Unapologetic singer stuns on the cover of the November issue of Vogue rocking a super-short pixie cut, red lips and a stunning red dress, and although this is Ri-Ri's second time gracing the iconic cover, the 24-year-old admits she has trouble dating just like any young girl:

"I have not been on a date in forever," she tells the mag. "Like two years. Haven't gone to the movies, to dinner. Zero."

She continues, confessing that dating is still difficult, even as a world-famous rock star:

"I would love to go on a date," she admits. "You don't think that? I'm a woman. A young woman, vibrant and I love to have fun. And I have too many vaginas 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 ass back home. He doesn't even have to come up. All I want is a conversation for an hour."

So what's the holdup?

"No one asks. Trust me on that. I'm waiting for the man who's ballsy enough to deal with me. I'm going to wait, though. You always find the wrong s--t when you go looking."

Although Rihanna might not be looking, the world is certainly keeping watch. She was recently linked to Twilight's Robert Pattinson--rumors that Rihanna slams as "the most bulls--t ever"--and fans continue to obsess over her relationship with ex Chris Brown.

The "Diamonds" singer has been spotted spending more time with her infamous ex as of late (Brown is still on probation for his brutal assault of Rihanna in 2009) and Breezy recently broke up with his now ex girlfriend Karrueche Tran, citing his friendship with Rihanna as the reason for the split.

"To the world, I feel like there's no closure," she says of her renewed friendship with R&B star. "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," she admits, referring to their controversial "Birthday Cake" and "Turn Up the Music" remixes.

And in Rihanna's signature unapologetic style, she doesn't seem to care if the world wants to judge:

"So now it's a bit of a fascination, I guess," she says. "I don't know if people will stop soon, but I feel like as soon as they have closure to it, they will...But they're not on the inside. They can't see what I see, unless they're sitting in my point of view. I guess I'll learn to accept that."
