Rihanna Defends Use of the “C-Word,” Talks Being A Role Model

It appears Rihanna’s use of the “C*nt” maybe long gone, at least not when she is in America.

RiRi, who recently sat down with British Vogue magazine, says ‘c*nt’ is equivalent to African Americans use of the word ‘n*gga.’

“It’s funny. The 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. When I first came here, I was saying it like it was nothing, like, ‘Hey c-nt,’ until my make-up artist finally had to tell me to stop. I just never knew.”

The blonde bombshell says she feels as though white people are the ones that expect her to be a role model even though she’d rather just make music.

“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”


“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.”

Do you agree with Rihanna stands on the role model issue.
