Rihanna: I Had No Idea the C-Word Was Offensive!
Rihanna‘s not exactly PG — but who knew she was such a potty mouth?
The 23-year-old appears on the cover of British Vogue‘s November issue, where the “We Found Love” singer reveals her fondness for the word “c-nt.”

“That word is so offensive to everyone in the world except for Bajans. You know African-Americans use the n-word to their brothers? Well, that’s the way we use the c-word,” Rihanna explains. “When I first came here, I was saying it like it was nothing, like, ‘Hey, c-nt,’ until my make-up artist finally had to tell me to stop. I just never know.”
Despite her affinity for crude language, Rihanna doesn’t want to be judged by her stage persona alone.

“That’s not me. That’s a part I play,” she explains of her raunchy image. “You know, like it’s a piece of art, with all these toys and textures to play with.”
“See, people — especially white people — they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead,” Rihanna complains. “The things I say in my songs, they expect it of me and [being a role model] became more of my job than I wanted it to be. But no, I just want to make music. That’s it.”

“Look, God doesn’t give any more than you can handle,” the singer adds. “I had to get through a lot of ups and downs — big downs — and a lot of trial and error to get where I am now.”
