Rihanna recently spoke out about her drastic weight loss following growing speculation that she has a drug and alcohol problem.
The 24-year-old has lost a substantial amount of weight in recent months which some critics attribute to her hard partying, but she admits that she is "not happy" with her new frame, according to Us Weekly Magazine.
"I'm a size 0- and not happy about it!" Rihanna told Us Weekly, adding "I went way too far. I prefer myself a bit chunkier. I want my old butt back!"
The Bajan singer was recently hospitalized after fulfilling a busy working schedule followed by a series of late night benders at various New York City nightclubs and her appearance at the Met Gala.
"My schedule is crazy!" Rihanna said adding "I got no sleep [before the Gala]."
Rihanna was rushed to hospital after reportedly consuming copious amounts of alcohol at the elite event.
"It's harsh on your body!" the singer admitted.
Her statements come just says after it was reported that the "Where Have You Been" singer could be headed to rehab in the near future.
Rihanna's industry friends, including her Roc Nation boss Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, are reportedly urging her to seek professional help and fear that she is spiraling out of control, according to Closer Magazine.
"Rihanna has been out of control for months. She was supposed to catch a flight back to the UK last week [for a work obligation], but she ended up missing it, which was the final straw for management. Jay-Z hit the roof when he found out, and told Rihanna, 'Go to rehab now or I'll drop you from the label,'" a source told Closer.
"She's not happy, but she now feels she has no choice," the insider added.
Some fans suspect that Rihanna's wild partying is actually a cry for help, with a growing number of critics pointing out how depressed she appears to be lately.
"Ri says she's physically and mentally exhausted and feeling lost," a source told Look magazine, adding that the singer has "reached breaking point."
"I think she desperately needs help and some time off -- not just from work but from all the other stresses in her life too," the source added.
