Beer in hand, blunt burning, half naked and having the time of her life, this is the way anyone taken a peek at Rihanna’s Instagram account would get a daily glimpse of. Not shocking and what many already know is that Rihanna really doesn’t give a —-!

On a recent interview with USA Today for the promotion of her Viva Glam lipstick and lipglass collaboration with MAC cosmetics, the singer says what people see is not really what she’s all about. It’s just how she behaves in “the moment.”

“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. 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.”

It’s in the moment. Even sometimes I go back to my Instagram and I’m like, “ Did I really post this?” I never know. One day I would never post this type of picture. A week later, I like this post. It’s when I’m bored. It’s in the moment.” Rihanna says.

The “rude girl”, does say, however that she acknowledges that she’s not a role model, and really, that’s not what she’s trying to be. She just wants to live her life, her way, with no restrictions. So for those who judge her, she’s not hearing it!

“I don’t like to use that word because people have their own opinion on what that means to them. I can’t really say I’m a role model. I’m not perfect. I’m not trying to sell that,” she says. “I want people to have fun but be responsible, protect themselves and be in control of your life. You can never judge people. I always made that a point. You never know what someone is going through.”
