Inside the magazine, Rihanna describes her professional self. “Sometimes a person looks at me and sees dollars. They see numbers and they see a product. I look at me and see art. If I didn’t like what I was doing, then I would say I was committing slavery.”
The singer spoke about her goals for her music. “I want to make music that’s hopeful, uplifting. Nothing corny or super sentimental. I just want it to have the feeling that brings you out of whatever you’re going through. I want it to spark that fire. I want it to be real, authentic and raw.”
