Singer Rihanna, who appears on the cover of British Vogue's November issue, recently revealed her fondness for the word "c-nt" in the fashion magazine.
The singer explained: "That word is so offensive to everyone in the world except for Bajans. You know African-Americans use the n-word to their brothers? Well, that's the way we use the c-word. When I first came here, I was saying it like it was nothing, like, 'Hey, c-nt,' until my make-up artist finally had to tell me to stop. I just never know."
Rihanna also said that she doesn't want to be judged by her stage persona who often doesn't wear pants: "That's not me. That's a part I play. You know, like it's a piece of art, with all these toys and textures to play with."
She then lamented the pressure that white people put her under to be a role model: "See, people, especially white people, they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead. 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."
"Look, God doesn't give any more than you can handle," the singer preached. "I had to get through a lot of ups and downs, big downs, and a lot of trial and error to get where I am now."
