Quotables: Rihanna Doesn’t Want to Be A Role Model

“That’s not me. That’s a part I play. You know, like it’s a piece of art … I just want to make music. 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.”

Rihanna opens up about not being such a saucy minx in real life. I think.

Does this quote confuse the hell out of anyone else? Because I think what Rihanna is saying is that she’s not really as trashy as she makes herself out to be sometimes and that white people … I don’t know. I really don’t. Is she saying that she says some inspirational things in her songs and that people want her to exemplify those things? Because I thought she just sang about whips and chains and more different rough sex.

Can someone please offer up some clarification here?
