Rihanna Didn't Realise The Word 'C**t' Was Offensive
Plus, the star claims she doesn't want to be a role model for her fans...
Rihannahas admitted that she never realised the word 'c**t' was an expletive.
The Cheers (Drink To That) singer, who was recently slammed for using the offensive word on Twitter, claims she had no idea it was a swear word until she moved to America from her native Barbados.Speaking about her foul language to the November issue of British Vogue, RiRi explained: "That word is so offensive to everyone in the world except for Bajans."
"You know African-Americans use the n-word to their brothers? Well, that's the way we use the c-word,"
She continued: "When I first came here, I was saying it like it was nothing, like, 'Hey, c**t', until my make-up artist finally had to tell me to stop. I just never know."
The 23-year old also confessed that she hates feeling under pressure to be a role model for her fans, stating to the publication: "See, people – especially white 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."
RiRi added: "Look, God doesn't give any more than you can handle. I had to get through a lot of ups and downs – big downs – and a lot of trial and error to get where I am now."
Rihanna also hit the headlines last week after she stripped off when shooting the video for her next single We Found Love in Belfast, leaving Irish farmer Alan Graham asking the Bajan babe to put her clothes back on.
