In the issue, Rih Rih reveals that the wigs, the hair color changes, the wild antics in videos [like her topless romp during her “We Found Love” video shoot that it angered an Irish farmer] is just all an act she puts on for her fans.
“That’s not me. That’s a part I play. You know, like it’s a piece of art, with all these toys and textures to play with,” she tells the magazine.
“See, people … they want me to be a role model just because of the life I lead. 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.”
