Rihanna: “I Can’t Say I Am a Role Model…I Always Made that Point” on Criticism

Rihanna - January 2014 - BellaNaija 01

Rihanna is living life on her own terms.

To promote her new Mac Cosmetics line, USA Today caught up with the music superstar. Ri Ri dished on her creative side, being philanthropic and the non stop criticism.

While addressing the fact that people think she’s music’s other resident wild child, here’s what she had to say;
“I think they think I’m drunk all the time. I think they think I am always partying, that my house is probably a party all the time with tons of people and tons of music and no clothes. I think that’s what they think. I’m actually very laid back. I love watching TV on a big old couch by myself. I love to swim in the ocean or the pool.”

With the success of her three sold-out collections for Mac Cosmetics’ first celebrity “creative partner”, scoring an animated role alongside Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin,  one can clearly call her a role model as he breaks from the usual box.

Rihanna was quick with her reply; “I don’t like to use that word because people have their own opinion on what that means to them. I can’t really say I’m a role model. I’m not perfect. I’m not trying to sell that. I want people to have fun but be responsible, protect themselves and be in control of your life. You can never judge people. I always made that a point. You never know what someone is going through.”.

Ri Ri concludes that she’s only living in the moment. “It’s in the moment. Even sometimes I go back to my Instagram and I’m like, ‘Did I really post this?’ I never know. One day I would never post this type of picture. A week later, I like this post,” she says. “It’s when I’m bored. It’s in the moment.”

There you have it folks.
