The 'We Found Love' singer hits back at critics who say she has changed her style.

Rihanna has admitted that she is not bothered what critics say of her raunchy image because she believes she has never consciously changed her style.

The 'You Da One' singer told Look magazine that she has always been "sexy" and is happy to dress however she likes.

"A lot of people say 'Oh, you got sexy. The image changed.' And the truth is, it really wasn't on purpose, I'm just being me. I'm just dressing how I feel."

The Bajan star also confessed that she is aware that her image may be unsuitable for younger fans.

She added: "I don't want fans to embrace me and copy me. I want them to embrace the things that I stand for, which is individuality and not being afraid of being who you are."

Rihanna recently praised Katy Perry for her individuality and admitted that she has always looked up to the singer.

The star is also set to release a behind-the-scenes look at the making of her sixth studio album 'Talk That Talk'.
