Rihanna says she doesn’t want to be a role model: ‘I just want to make music. That’s it.’

Well, whether she likes it or not, Rihanna is a role model to millions of girls all over the world — that’s why we freaked out when we first saw her C-word necklace! But in a new Vogue UK interview, she says that because she was raised in Barbados, she had no idea the necklace would be so offensive: “When I first came [to the states], I was saying it like it was nothing,” she admits. “Like, ‘Hey, c–t!’ My make-up artist finally had to tell me to stop. I just never know.”

As for being a role model, that was never part of her plan: “See, people — especially white people — they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead,” she says. “The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me and [being a role model] became more of my job than I wanted it to be. But no, I just want to make music. That’s it.”

Given that it’s used differently where Rihanna is from, do you find her use of the C-word any less offensive?

I am of a different mind. I like cunts and most men do we just don’t want to admit it. I find it very sexy that she is comfortable in her skin and so liberated.

Wearing a necklace w/ that word on it, doesn’t say much for Rhianna’s opinion of herself. The word is out there, but no one I know would ever think of using it. Poor, Rhianna, loads of money, not an ounce of class.
