Since her debut six years ago, Pop belle Rihanna has rightly or wrongly seen her career center more on style than on substance.
Yes, quite unfortunately the ever changing hair colors, larger than life persona and knee jerk approach to releasing music have led many to accuse the Island beauty of being nothing more than a ‘flash in the pan’.
Now, she has given her thoughts on her matter.
Find out what she said about being a gimmick below…
Speaking to Ryan Seacrest today, she explained:
It’s more about the music now.
I didn’t want to make it such a big deal about what hair color or what cut. I just wanted to go right back to something simple and something flexible, something a little more natural.
I kinda just wanted to scale right back instead of having a look.
Here’s the thing:
There’s nothing wrong with being a ‘gimmick’ or having an ‘act’ if that gimmick or act is validated by undisputed talent. See Lady GaGa.
The only time it becomes a real issue is when the talent behind the ‘gimmick’ is difficult to discern. See Rihanna.
Let’s hope that in time Fenty learns to marry the look that has made her who she is today with the talent so many believe she is arguably yet to flaunt.
