Rih is fed up!
Rihanna Addresses Critics Who Feel She Parties And Drinks Too Much
Via USA Today reports:
Rihanna gets why fans, or even curious bystanders, might think she’s music’s other resident wild child. You only need to check her Instagram to see ample photos of the singer in teeny bikinis, at various exotic locations, doing various very non-PC things.
“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,” she says. “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.”
So does she view herself as a role model? “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,” she says. “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.”
Rihanna didn’t attend Sunday’s Grammys because her categories were off-camera and she wasn’t performing, so she chose to sit that one out. She’s “playing” with more music, she says, and she’s one of the voices of the DreamWorks animated film Home, along with Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin. It’s her first foray into voice work. “It’s such a different experience from being on camera. You really get to learn the art of acting and dialogue. I don’t know about going more into acting – acting is something I respect so much. It’s another level of skill,” she says.
Chances are, if she does venture into Hollywood, she’ll share that information on Instagram, which shows the enviably buff Rihanna smoking, swimming and frolicking on beaches, in oceans and with friends and family. She doesn’t agonize over what she shares with the public and her more than 11 million followers.
“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.”
Do you think Rihanna should tone it down a little or is he wild child image ok?
