1. Rihanna On Whether She Thinks She's A Role Model

2. Rihanna On Being In The Public Eye
She said: "It's amazing how lonely you can feel, and like no one understands. The moment you reach out and put your guard down and you're vulnerable. Someone always reaches out, and you know you're not alone. I put a huge importance on my relationship with my fans."
3. Rihanna On Her Ideal Man
She said: "If I had it my way I want a man that loves me, cherishes me, values me, but they have to know my value in order to value me. They have to know my worth and they can only know my worth if I know my worth. I want them to respect me. But I want fun times! I want fun, fun times. I want laughs. I want laughs more than everything. I have everything else, all I want is a partner in crime to enjoy it with me."
4. Rihanna Had A Tough Upbringing, But Respects Her Father As A Dad
Rihanna on her dad: "I was so angry. I was angry from a lot of things from my childhood. I couldn't separate him from a husband and from him as a father." But she added: "As awful as he was to my mom, at times, it didn't compare to how great he was as a father."
5. Rihanna Reveals She Still Loves Chris Brown
She said: "I think that he's the love of my life. He was the first love. I see that he loves me the same way."
