Rihanna: "I Don't Try To Be Controversial"

The 'Talk That Talk' star says she uses her music videos to convey the message in her songs.

Rihanna has insisted that she never intends her music videos to be controversial.

A number of RiRi's videos have courted criticism in recent years, including 'We Found Love', because of the adult nature of their content.

But in an interview with the Radio Times, the singer said she only tries to be honest and portray the message behind the song.

"I never do anything to get banned, never do it for controversy. It's always just honest and at times I just go a little too far for some," she said.

"When I make a music video, it's a piece of art. It's four minutes to make a visual, for people to understand the message in the song."

Rihanna is currently promoting Battleship, which marks her first major film role and is released in UK cinemas on 11th April.

The singer joined members of the cast at the world premiere of the movie in Japan earlier this week.
