More Rihanna? Yes, please!
"I think honesty is the ultimate liberation in life," she told the mag. "People want to shy away from the truth and keep sweeping it under the rug. But after a while, you pick up the rug and there's just way too much dirt, so you might as well just be up front about it."
And in the spirit of honesty, the pop star confesses what she's looking for in a man and how being a role model is no fun...
"I play a very dominant role in my life, in every aspect of it. And I like to feel like a lady still, at some point. I feel like that's the time when a guy really gets to be a man, and I get to be a woman. And if I'm being a man in the bedroom too, there's nothing really in it for me."
With songs like "S&M," "Only Girl" and "Rude Boy," the singer has become known for her over-the-top sexuality and has many people questioning her status as a role model.
"I want to set the right example and, at the same time, live my life, " Rihanna says in response. "I feel like pop stars can't be rock stars anymore because they have to be role models, and it takes the fun out of it for us, because we just want to have fun with art."
Hey, girls just want to have fun, right?
