Rihanna Was Against Love The Way You Lie Part 2
The Te Amo singer felt that the original 'couldn't be beaten'...
The sequel to their smash hit duet, which features on RiRi's new LP, Loud, apparently almost never happened after the singer admitted to our US team she thought about refusing to take part.
The Barbadian beauty revealed: "When I first heard the idea about doing a part two, I was just completely against it. I just felt like you couldn't beat the original. There's no way you can outdo that, so why compete with it?"
"We heard a broken-down version that was stripped down, just piano... I fell in love with it. We recorded it, then we did another version to the stripped-down version with drums, then we did another version with drums and Eminem."
She added: "And then that was the one that just felt really good. I love both: I love the broken-down version, as well as the new one with Eminem."
Meanwhile, the star, who performed her new track, Only Girl (In The World) on The X Factor last night, has claimed she is a massive fan of London, so much so, she is hoping to set up camp in the capital.
Speaking to the News of the World, Rihanna confessed: "I spend more time over there (in London) than I spend in L.A., and that's where I live."
She then added she has asked her assistants to find her an apartment over here claiming: "London is more like my home,"
