Rihanna’s Not Trying to Be a Rebel

I feel like Rihanna has kinda tamed herself in the past several months – or maybe we’re just that desensitized to her crotch patting, stripper visiting, ass-baring ways. Either way, I wasn’t really moved by her new interview in Vogue, in which she insists that she’s not trying to be a rebel, she’s just unconventional and likes going against the grain.

Fair enough, of course, but I don’t really see Rihanna as a rebel at this point. She’s just… RiRi. She likes to get her ass out and smoke a lot of weed and that’s what she does. She’s never been a role model and isn’t trying to be and yada yada… so why is this still a discussion?

Here’s what she had to say, anyway:

“I don’t go out of my way to be a rebel or to have that perception, but a lot of the decisions I make, a lot of the direction I want to move, is against the grain, or against society’s tight lane.

“I’m aware of that sometimes. It might not be fitting with the norm, but that’s okay for me.”

Cool. On a side note, that hand tattoo is just horrendous. Why would you layer tattoos on top of one another? Why? And then show it off in a magazine? Just personal preference, of course, but dear God.
