Rihanna Didn’t Copy Posh
MTV NEWS EXCLUSIVE: The Umbrella star tells us she didnt copy Mrs Becks hair-do
With Umbrella set to become the longest running number 1 single for a decade, Rihanna spoke exclusively to MTV News on the video set for her follow-up track Shut Up And Drive.
So why the sudden success? Is it just a great first track (admit it " were all singing ells, ella, ella), the golden touch of Jay-Z or maybe its got something to do with the stunning new look.
Rihanna explains: Its very edgy. Its a lot different from how youve seen me before. The short hair, the attitude is very B-girlish. I have a lot of attitude now and Im not afraid to let it out anymore. It definitely is a new me on this album!
Whilst we were on set we tracked down the hair stylist responsible for the transformation to get the story behind the snip.
We wanted to do something different, she said. So we came up with this idea and everybody loves it .
Weve heard of Victoria Beckham but we actually didnt copy her. For Rihanna we gave her longer pieces in the front and added highlights to it so we didnt copy her look " we have our own look going on
