Rihanna is renowned for her risque lyrics and equally controversial film clips that have in the past fallen foul of censors for being too over the top.
But despite her onstage antics and sexually charged wardrobe, Rihanna insists that she doesn't purposefully set out to be controversial.
Rihanna's recent clip for We Found Love drew a lot of attention for its depiction of drug use and domestic violence, but Ri argues that she doesn't do it to attract attention- but can admit that at times she oversteps the mark.
She told Radio Times magazine, "When I make a music video, it's a piece of art. It's four minutes to make a visual, for people to understand the message in the song."
She added, "I never do anything to get banned, never do it for controversy. It's always just honest and at times I just go a little too far for some."
Rihanna is about to draw attention in another way, when she makes her Hollywood debut in the action film Battleship.
In the same interview, Rihanna revealed what special talents she brings to the film!
She said, "My bad ass-ness, and my buns. That's what I bring."
Sometimes controversial but always entertaining!
What do you think? Does Rihanna push the envelope too far?
