RIHANNA SPEAKS ON TAKING CHARGE OF HER IMAGE
There are a lot of people out there that are saying that the new RiRi is too “promiscuous” looking and how her image has changed so drastically. Rihanna opened up to Bang Showbiz and said this: “I had a ridiculous schedule. It was kind of unfair. But I kept going. I was focusing on getting people to respect me as an artist, making my stamp in the industry. “I wasn’t 100% or even 75% in control of my image or my sound. I said, ‘If you guys keep this perfect image of me, people will never notice me’. I kind of blended in. It was safe, the blonde, curly hair. It was a formula. I didn’t want to be like all the other artists. I wanted to stand out.”
She continued to say: “And the only way I could do that was by taking charge of my image and sound. And it worked. Good Girl Gone Bad was a big turning point for me.”
We certainly agree that it worked… Rihanna is one of the hottest stars out there right now and personally I love the change.
