Rihanna insists that while people have misconceptions about her life, many of them are far from the truth.
Despite the fact that the 25-year-old Barbadian pop star posts Instagram pictures of herself smoking, partying and taking vacations the singer insists that her real life is starkly different.
"I think they think I'm drunk all the time. I think they think I am always partying, that my house is probably a party all the time with tons of people and tons of music and no clothes. I think that's what they think," she said according to USA Today. "I'm actually very laid back. I love watching TV on a big old couch by myself. I love to swim in the ocean or the pool." more >>

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards has been criticized by many for its dark theme and portrayal of witchcraft and satanic symbolism. However, even though the somewhat vague song lyrics contain references to love and witchcraft, the meaning behind her "Dark Horse" song may in fact be drug addiction.
The pop singer departed from her usual bubbly themes Sunday with a Grammy performance some called satanic, and the creepy performance had many seeking answers as to what the song really means.
Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" meaning on the surface is about a witch warning someone not to fall in love with her. The singer elaborated to during the E! pre-Grammy show, saying her performance was inspired by one of her "favorite" Stevie Nicks lyrics: "Which witch is which?" more >>
Award-winning gospel artist Natalie Grant left the Grammys early on Sunday, refusing to say why. Bloggers speculated that she left in response to Katy Perry's "satanic" performance or because of a mass wedding of 34 couples that included homosexuals.
"We left the Grammy's early. I've had many thoughts, most of which are probably better left inside my head," Grant tweeted that night. The artist kept her message positive, however, declaring, "I've never been more honored to sing about Jesus and for Jesus. And I've never been more sure of the path I've chosen."
Before Grant walked out, Katy Perry and Juicy J performed the song "Dark Horse" in a manner widely described as "satanic." Perez Hilton praised the performers as "fiery Satanists," adding that "we hope KP's parents weren't too mad at that Satan-themed performance." E! Online tweeted a revealing question, "um, did we just witness actual witchcraft during Katy Perry's #Grammys performance?" CatholicVote asked the question "didn't you hear Satan attended this year's Grammy awards?" more >>
The day after winning two Grammys for "Best Contemporary Christian Music Song" and "Best Contemporary Christian Music Album," Christian music artist Mandisa explained why she decided to skip out on the awards ceremony.
"I have been struggling with being in the world, not of it lately. I have fallen prey to the alluring pull of flesh, pride, and selfish desires quite a bit recently," she wrote on her Facebook, including a reference to 1 John 2:15-16.
"Don't fall in love with this corrupt world or worship the things it can offer. Those who love its corrupt ways don't have the Father's love living within them. All the things the world can offer to you—the allure of pleasure, the passion to have things, and the pompous sense of superiority—do not come from the Father…" it states. more >>
