What an interview! Rihanna confessed to watching her father struggle with a crack addiction as a young child. Thankfully, he quit that horrible habit for the sake of his family. Now, her life has made a turn for the better and has future plans of beginning a swimsuit or clothing line. Either way, this girl has a huge future ahead of her.
On her family:
“I knew that my mom and dad would argue when there was foil paper with an ashtray. He would just go into the bathroom all the time. I didn’t know what it was. But he knew that to get closer to his kids he had to cut that out. And he did.
“My mom raised me to be a child and know my place but also to think like a woman. She never held back from me in terms of being too young to know certain things, so I am very mature for my age. In this business you have to work with the things that get thrown your way – ” the good, the bad and the ugly. “My family keeps my feet on the ground so I don’t get too ahead of myself.”
On her life philosophy:
“Believe in yourself. A dream is but a dream. But if you want it to come true you really have to fight and pursue. I had no intention of being an entertainer only in Barbados. I always looked to the big picture. I pursued my dream and it came true.”
On her passion to sing:
“Growing up, I always sang. But no one was pushing me to do it. It was something that I wanted to do. So I developed a passion for it, fell in love with music and developed my own style.”/p>
On future plans:
“I would like to probably start some companies like a make-up company, a clothing line or maybe a swimsuit line.”
