Rihanna: ‘I don’t give a dick about privacy anymore’

Singer also reveals that she hasn't had a break for over two years

Rihanna has admitted she no longer cares about her privacy being invaded.

The singer said that rather than intimidating her, social media also actually gives her “creative freedom”.

She told V Magazine: “I run away from anything that does not stimulate me. I often find myself gravitating toward the underground.

“There is a certain creative freedom there that you can’t experience anywhere else.

“Do I even give a dick about that (privacy) anymore?”

Rihanna also revealed that she hasn’t taken any time off over the last two years.

She added: “The past two years are the hardest I’ve ever worked. I’ve been working on two albums, an animated film, shooting for multiple magazines, designing for Puma and Stance [socks], a new line of fragrances, a summer tour, I launched my first annual Diamond Ball at the end of last year, and I’ve also been developing several projects to be revealed in the near future.”

The singer gave a further update on her eighth studio album ‘R8’.

Rihanna added: “Dude, I’m in love with my interludes. This one called ‘James Joint’ is on constant repeat. [The album is] soulful and aggressive, whether it’s lyrically, musically, or just the tone of my voice.”

You can listen to ‘James Joint’ below.

Her new single ‘American Oxygen’ was inspired in part by Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Born In The USA’, according to the song’s co-writer Sam Harris.

He said the track took a year to write and was inspired by the Springsteen hit.

Rihanna is set to grace the cover of the May issue of V Magazine.
