"I Like Things a Little Twisted," Says Rihanna
What better to lift you from your Turkey Day coma than watching an interview with Rihanna? The singer sits down with Toure tomorrow to talk about her style, her self-image and what she really wanted to call her album.
Currently promoting her new CD, Rated R, the 21-year-old admits she had a far more salacious title in mind, on the interview airing on Fuse at 6pm EST.
“I actually wanted to name my album, Such a F—ing Lady, but a couple of stores, a couple of major outlets didn’t allow that… That was the title for a while, but Rated R made more sense because of the overall story."
Meanwhile, she continues to make waves with her hard-edged style. “I like playing with the tough but not too tough, and being a lady but not too girlie because that’s not me," she explains. "I kind of play on both. I like things a little twisted, a bit of a bad a** and a bit of lady.”
And while Rihanna has the confidence to venture out in the skimpiest of clothes, even she has off-days.
“There’s something that is never good enough. You never look in the mirror and say ‘yes, I’m perfect today’. It’s always like, okay I don’t have a pimple but my gut looks huge. Awesome. You always find a flaw. That’s what the mirror is there for, it’s very bad.”
