Rule breaker Rihanna

Rihanna is a rule breaker.

The 27-year-old singer admitted that she can't help doing things she shouldn't because she is just being herself.

Speaking in the first free issue of NME, she said: "I just have a way of breaking the rules even when I don't intend to. You have to let people be who they are - you have to believe that that's going to be the best version of them."

And Rihanna hit out at claims her 'Bitch Better Have My Money' video was anti-feminist and sexist.

She said: "At the end of the day the women won. The bitch was the man. So I'm confused. Those are the people that didn't get it. I'm not worried about those people. This was not a woman empowerment video. I was making a piece of art.

"I wanted people to feel like they'd got more than they'd expected. But not in a shocking way - in the sense of 'wow, this is a real mini-movie'. You know? I wanted to go deeper. Mostly what I wanted was for people to get it."

Rihanna also revealed plans to move to London, saying: "I'd like to live in London next year, you know. I want to try it. While I'm childless, and I can run around. I wanna do it."
