Rihanna, the 25-year-old Barbadian singer, has been the subject of countless rumors throughout the years and now she is speaking up about being the cause of all of the controversy.
The singer recently appeared in V Magazine alongside model Kate Moss where she admitted that she does not let the countless rumors about her life bother her. In the March interview of V Magazine, Rihanna speaks about the speculation surrounding her and boyfriend Chris Brown, who assaulted her in 2009.
Amid the pair's reconciliation that took place after Brown publicly broke up with model girlfriend Karrueche Tran after two years, Rihanna said she does not pay attention to the scrutiny and rumors surrounding her decision to reunite with him.
"I don't read it anymore," she told V magazine. "I already have too many voices in my head right now! I don't have room for that other stuff."
The singer, who recently turned 25, said that she chooses to tune out the negative reports so that she can focus on other things in her life.
"If I let that other stuff in, it'll take the space of productive (expletive), and that isn't good," Rihanna told V Magazine.
Rihanna's ability to make headlines has caused some to compare her to the late Princess Diana of Wales 16 years after her death. British publication The Sunday Times Magazine featured a graphically enhanced half of Rihanna's face meshed together with Princess Diana's in a story that the Barbadian pop star could not help but pay attention to.
In the Times Magazine cover story titled "The Princess & The Showgirl" Rihanna and the late princess of Wales are compared to one another for their "ravishingly seductive flirtation with the world press."
Camille Paglia, the author of the Times Magazine cover story, said the women utilized the press in similar ways.
"Like Diana, Rihanna has worryingly drifted into using photo ops to send messages of allure, defiance or revenge in a turbulent relationship with an errant partner," Paglia wrote.
Rihanna caught wind of the Sunday Times Magazine cover story and took to her Instagram account to reveal her thoughts on the matter.
"Just so happens I came home drunk to this in a pile of papers outside my hotel room," Rihanna wrote. "My lil Bajan behind, never thought these many people would even know my name, now it's next to Princess Diana's on the front of a newspaper! Life can be such a beautiful thing when you let it be #yourejealous :)"
