R&B star Rihanna has given up on finding true love after ending romances with Chris Brown and baseball star Matt Kemp.
The Bajan beauty endured a tough 2009 after a violent bust-up with then-boyfriend Brown, and she has been single since splitting from Los Angeles Dodgers star Kemp late last year (10).
Now Rihanna insists she is no rush to jump into a new romance - and is fully focused on putting her own needs first.
She tells Vogue magazine, "I just kind of shut down from that. I just let it go. I don't ever want to have to depend on a relationship.
"I think it's a really special thing to find love. It's beautiful. Nothing can match it. But I want to make sure that I find other things in life that I love besides... love."
