Rihanna has called Princess Diana "gangsta".

Speaking to Glamour magazine - via 4Music - the popstar said that the late Princess Diana was a fashion "gangsta". When asked who her fashion icon was, she responded:

You know who is the best who ever did it? Princess Diana. She was like - she killed it. Every look was right. She was gangsta with her clothes. She had these crazy hats. She got oversize jackets. I loved everything she wore!


Earlier this month, a selfie taken by Rihanna showing her cuddling a slow loris during her holiday in Thailand led to the arrest of two animal keepers. As Billboard reports, the singer posted a holiday snap on Instagram showing her with the primate, accompanied by the caption: "Look who was talkin dirty to me."

However, as the slow loris is listed as a protected species, her photograph alerted authorities in Phuket and eventually led police to arrest the two men who had provided the loris for possession of protected animals. The pair could now face up to four years in prison and a fine of 40,000 baht (£809).

Rihanna was in court herself this summer, after she triumphed in a legal battle with Topshop over a T-shirt that bears her image. A High Court judge, Mr Justice Birss, ruled that a "substantial number" of customers could have been duped into buying the T-shirt because it looked as though Rihanna herself had approved it. The picture printed on the garment, the singer's lawyers argued, was "very similar" to images used on one of her album sleeves.
