Rihanna is one of the greats!
So why should anyone be surprised she has high expectations when it comes to life and love.
In a new interview with New York Times Magazine, the FourFiveSeconds singer talked about what it's like being a pop star and what EXACTLY she's looking for in a man.

The stunner divulged:
"I'm [a 'next-moment' person, not an 'in-the-moment' person.] Only now are things hitting me, like I'm feeling them emotionally. I used to feel unsafe right in the moment of an accomplishment — I felt the ground fall from under my feet because this could be the end. And even now, while everyone is celebrating, I'm on to the next thing. I don't want to get lost in this big cushion of success."
What a refreshingly candid response! This intense focus on her career might be why she claims she isn't dating right now — despite the fact Ri's recently been linked to Travis Scott.
"Guys need attention. They need that nourishment, that little stroke of the ego that gets them by every now and then. I'll give it to my family, I'll give it to my work — but I will not give it to a man right now."
Well, that's absolutely fair — especially since the Bajan songstress is absolutely SLAYING it right now. Umm, who wasn't obsessed with her B*tch Better Have My Money music video?? HA!
Though her current break from dating doesn't mean she isn't thinking about the kind of guy she'd like to be with.
"I'm turned on by guys who are cultured. That'll keep me intrigued. They don't have to have a single degree, but they should speak other languages or know things about other parts of the world or history or certain artists or musicians. I like to be taught."
Hmm, very inneresting! Sounds a bit like Lewis Hamilton, no?? That was a dream pairing.
However, RiRi revealed she wasn't always the sex icon she is now. In fact, as a kid she was certainly clueless about boys.
"Well, there's always this human instinct about that, even from a very, very young age. But by like age 11, girls were talking about what they had and hadn't done. I hadn't even kissed a boy yet, so it always made me feel insecure, like I was never gonna be good or ready or know what to do — I didn't even have boobs."
That's the way it should be! There's no need to grow up too fast.
