Rihanna was once just another pop star in a sea of pop stars, indistinguishable and kind of boring.
But over the past few years she's turned it up in the provocation department and become well-known as one of the raunchiest singers on the scene.
"That’s not me," she tells Vogue, in the latest issue. "That’s a part I play. You know, like it’s a piece of art… I just want to make music."
Do you believe her? Does the fact that she's so sexy make you pay attention to her music more? Would her music be just as good if it was made by someone less overly sexual... like say, Adele?
