‘I Never Wanted To Be Famous.’ – says Rihanna

celebs 21Music superstar Rihanna has insisted she never wanted to be famous.

The Umbrella hitmaker found stardom early in her life, signing her first record deal with Def Jam at the age of 17.

Now Rihanna, who turns 26 on Thursday (20Feb14), has revealed that becoming an internationally recognised celebrity was never one of her life goals – all she cared about was the music. She tells Vogue magazine:

“I did sing a lot as a child. A lot. I practiced hard to maneuver my voice. I love singing. I love it, and it doesn’t feel like a chore. It’s an expression.

“I never wanted to be famous. I just wanted my music to be heard all over the world. Then it happened and the fame came with it. I can’t ever imagine feeling used to it.”

    *face palm* If you want your music to be heard all over the world then fame comes with the territory.
    Seriously, what are these people smoking?

      My points exactly! Its too far-fetched that she’d want to be heard all over the globe and yet don’t wanna be known. That’s so scatter-brain in my book, as in what the heck is she talking ’bout?

    • Lots of pot, in the case of our good-girl-gone-bad

    • I never wanted to be famous. I just accidentally did attention-seeking stuff and found myself a famous diva.
      I mean, seriously?

        No leave am. She dey talk to zombie them.
        This is synonymous with “i never asked to be a role model”, something she has been repeating.

      • She does like protesting a lot, doesn’t she? Lol
        Oh, such injustice! Yoking her with fame and the job of a role model. Such cruel, cruel world.

      • Dear Wallie, to be a diva one should be able to sing. Besides “love” that’s the most abused word of the last decade.

  2. She never wanted to be famous but yet she trolled audition venues with devastatingly horrible renditions of Mariah Carey hits (some of the videos are on YouTube.) If it was about the music why didn’t she settle for songwriting. Oh I forgot, she doesn’t even write her own music.
    Jay Z (paraphrasing him here) was moved by Rihanna’s desperation and hunger to be seen, and that’s what moved him to sign her on, not her talent, which is very mediocre. Very very mediocre.
