Is it just me or are Rihanna‘s interviews just completely ridiculous anymore? It’s like she’s being dense and ignorant on purpose. There was that interview where she said that it was “very hard” for her to accept that people didn’t understand her public reconciliation with Chris Brown, and there was that interview where she walked out after being asked if it was frustrating being romantically linked to other celebrities. It’s like, you’re not fooling anyone, Rihanna. You can’t honestly be this dumb.
But I guess she can, because she just did an interview with Esquire where she said the same shit. Here are some excerpts from Celebitchy:
On fame: “The attention is something I’ve learned to ignore. This is what I do. I live my life and they document it. A lot of things I don’t care for people to know, but it just is. That’s what it’s become.”
On recording with Chris Brown: “I thought people were gonna be surprised that we finally did a record together, but I didn’t see how people could think it was a bad thing, you know? In my mind, it was just music.”
Five years from now: “Hopefully I’ll have a man by then. I’ve gotta start there, right? But how far I go [with my career] is God’s plan. I’m just following through my destiny. I don’t think it ever ends. It just evolves.”
Ok, the first part about attention: really? “I live my life and they document it”? Because I’m pretty sure Rihanna’s the one who documents it. She’s the one who tweets photos of herself constantly, doing things like rolling a blunt on some dude’s head and getting grinded on at strip clubs. There’s nothing wrong with that, but she’s the one who puts a lot of this stuff out there. I’d buy this quote from almost anyone else, but not Rihanna. Not with her Twitter account.
The second part: again, really? Did she really not even consider that some people might think her atrocious song with Chris Brown was a bad thing? I really can’t believe that.
As for the third part, good for her. I really do hope she finds whatever it is that she’s looking for. But jeez, I hope she learns how to give better interviews along the way.
