Sleep is what Rihanna wants
What does Rihanna want for Christmas?
“Sleep with a big bow on it!”
That’s what the Barbadian international artiste told entertainment journalist Ryan Seacrest during a telephone interview on Friday while travelling on a bus to Belgium where she was scheduled to perform.
“That (sleep) would be great. I’m praying that my phone shuts down,” she said.
Rihanna referred to her recent illness, noting that she was busy and trying to meet various deadlines.
“I was doing a lot of touring and trying to finish a record all at the same time, all these deadlines and shooting videos…so my immune system got a little weak and I got sick. The album is done so I get to sleep at night so that helps,” she said.
Rihanna said she is excited about her new album Talk That Talk which is set to be released on November 21.
“The album snippets just came out yesterday (Thursday) and people are really reacting. I know the songs that I love, and to see people react to them the same way that I do. I’ve lived with these songs for a while, but now it’s brand new. I have to go listen to my album all over again, because I got excited like I’ve never heard it.”
Singling out the track You Da One, Rihanna admits she can’t stop listening to this song.
“‘You Da One‘ is one of those records that became very addictive for me. I could not stop listening to this song. It’s very infectious. It’s a sweet little love letter. I love that it has that reggae vibe, but it also has that little bit of dubstep. It’s kind of dirty. I love it.”
Rihanna said fashion wise, she plans to return to simple.
“I just want to go back to something simple. Something flexible, a little more natural. It’s more about the music. I don’t want to become a gimmick. Ever.” (rihannadaily)
