Rihanna Talks Chris Brown Duet, Beyoncé, and ‘Unapologetic’ on Facebook Live

Rihanna

With only 11 days to go until her seventh album Unapologetic is released, Rihanna sat down with Bravo’s Andy Cohen at Facebook’s New York headquarters for “Facebook Live.” A few of her 62 million Facebook fans were in the audience and sent in questions.

The pop megastar spoke about reading rumors on blogs, listening to “ratchet” songs like “Bandz a Make Her Dance” and “Pop That” (“I don’t like listening to pop music in the car”), the impact of Hurricane Sandy, and sounded off on her peers including Beyoncé (“Gorgeous, a stab to my self-esteem”), Lady Gaga, and Nicki Minaj. When asked if she and Chris Brown are together, she said “no.”

On her duet with Chris, “Nobody’s Business”: “‘Nobody’s Business’ is basically the way I look at everything regarding my personal life. Even though you have to witness it, it’s being documented at every second, it still is mine. This is mine at this point. When it gets to my music and stuff like that, I’ll give and I’ll give and I’ll give, and I just feel like I need to keep a little bit for me that I get to the side.”

On wanting to be the “black Madonna”: “Madonna is one of those artists that she was very self-expressive. She was bold, she was fearless. All those are things that I looked up to as a young woman. I wanted to be all those things.”

On where she wants to be in 30 years: “I wanna be skinny, I wanna be fierce… I hope my tits are still sitting up.”

On her album title Unapologetic: “It’s very true. It’s raw. It’s honest. It’s storytelling, even the way it flows on the album. It takes you on a journey.”

On why her late grandmother Dolly inspires her: “She’s just a complete woman. If I could even make it to half that, I would be in great, great hands.”

    So young, so naive. “I wanna be skinny. I wanna be fierce.” Really? LOL How about “I want have love in my life. I want to be proud of the work I’ve done.”

    @DPQ, shut up, you sound so old fashioned. Rihanna was being funny, and the telling truth people hate to admit.

    That was good. I watched the whole thing because Andy is great at his job. I think Rihanna, along with Brandy now give the best interviews. They’re not waiting to answer but relating to host and giving personality.

    If she didn’t want people in her business, she should’ve stayed her ass off on ABC. What a slap in the face to Diane Sawyer and all who supported her during that difficult time.

  11. Realist

    THIS RIGHT HERE PROVES TO ME THAT SHE DOES SHIT FOR ATTENTION. AS MUCH AS I TRY TO RESPECT HER AS AN INDIVIDUAL AND AS AN ARTIST, SHE ALWAYS DOES SOME ASS BACKWARDS SHIT. THE SONG SHE HAS WITH CHRIS BROWN TITLED “NOBODY’S BUSINESS”….SHE NEED TO STOP. SHE GETS DEFENSIVE WHEN PPL QUESTION HER DECISIONS REGARDING WHATEVER TYPE OF RELATIONSHIP SHE MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE WITH HIM BUT SHE KEEPS INVITING PPL TO DO JUST THAT WHEN SHE MAKES SONGS LIKE THE ONE TITLED ABOVE. SHE’S FORCE FEEDING THE PUBLIC TO ACCEPT THAT SHES TALKING TO HIM AGAIN. HUGE, HUGE TURNOFF.

    Good Interview, maybe it was an accident but saying that she was donating 100,000 to the relief fund wasn’t cool. We don’t need to know how much you were giving.
