Crush of the Day: Rihanna

Rihanna is a "Good Girl Gone Bad Ass" according to the newest issue of GQ. In a revealing interview (pun intended), Rihanna goes on record to talk about what happened on the night of the Chris Brown incident (sort of) and how she does not in fact have herpes. Here are a few interesting tidbits from the article:

You know, when I talked to those high school girls...and this illustrates how difficult a problem it is: Their first question was "What did she do to get hit?"
Mm-hmm.

And I thought, Oh God, how awful is it that they'd ask that question.
Mm-hmm. After everything happened, it was a wake-up call to me…I didn't realize how much of an effect it had on young girls' lives, and that's part of the insight that I wanna give. Stop blaming yourself for that outcome. There's nothing you can do, ever, to excuse a man's behavior like that.

Did you blame yourself?
Initially? I mean…actually, no, I never blamed myself, but I wondered what,
what did I do to provoke it?…

You can read the rest of the article here. The reason I picked Rihanna as my crush of the day is not because of all these super sexy photoshoots she's had recently but because 1) I love Rated R, despite it's darkness. It's just a true album, not just a collection of singles. 2) I love how Rihanna has not relied on being "the victim". She seems to be a 21 year old who just wants to forget about all that and have fun. Whereas we have Chris Brown who pretty much does nothing but whine about how everyone hates him...but that's a whole 'nother story.
