The 'You Da One' singer says her body is "not living up to its full potential" and wants more of a bum.

Rihanna says she "misses" her bum and says she has been eating a lot more recently to try and get back to her body's "full potential".

The 'We Found Love' star opened up to Harper's Bazaar following her cover shoot for the magazine's August issue, and says she is unhappy with her more svelte figure and wants a bigger behind.

"I don't know if there's something going on with my body right now, but I'm eating everything in life!" Rihanna told the publication this month. "I miss my ass. It just went away.

"I need a butt," Rihanna joked, before adding: "I have an idea of one, but it's not living up to its full potential right now."

The singer's interview also saw her opening up about past relationships and admitting she is afraid of falling in love again and struggles to let people get close to her.

The 'Where Have You Been' star donned a variety of designer outfits for the glamorous photoshoot, including a sleek white dress by Calvin Klein and a bronze glittered dress with leopard boots by Tom Ford.

Rihanna landed back in the UK this weekend to perform live at London's Hyde Park for Wireless 2012, after returning to New York City last week to attend the funeral of her grandma Dolly, who passed away this month after a long battle with cancer.
