What Your Favorite Rihanna Lyrics Say About You, From "FourFiveSeconds" To "Birthday Cake"
When it comes to Rihanna, everyone knows that the feisty pop star says exactly what she wants—no holds barred, and she's just as candid with her music. I routinely bop along to a number of her songs, but I have to admit that some of the lyrics tend to make a more reserved person like me blush, just a little bit. But that coy feeling only lasts so long — I mean, this is Rihanna we’re talking about and quite often I find that her bold attitude empowers me and dissolves any sign of timidity that might’ve been present before I connected with her lyrics. Suffice to say: Your favorite Rihanna lyrics can tell you a lot about yourself.
Now, just as I've discovered some things about myself based off my reaction to the lyrical content of Rih Rih's music, I'm pretty sure I can surmise more than a few details about anyone else daring enough to disclose their favorite Rihanna lyrics. Try as you might to hide from the truth, but Bustle's very own Alex Kritselis already knows what your favorite Rihanna song says about you, so make like the Barbadian pop star and get comfortable with letting your personality hang out in all of its glittery, Swarovski-crystal adorned glory.
Are these your favorite Rihanna song lyrics? Well, then. Allow me to talk that talk for a minute:
"Strip clubs and dolla billz/Still got more money" From "Pour it Up"
You party hard, but you work harder. Balling out at the strip club and still having money left over at the end of the night also means you're fiscally responsible and you likely maintain one of those keep the change savings accounts that contains more than $20, especially during tax season when you moonlight as an accountant. Oh, and bragging about how much money you have must mean you're into treating your friends.
"I think I've had enough/I might get a little drunk/I say what's on my mind/I might do a little time" From "FourFiveSeconds"
You have a history of diffusing your job-related stress with a few rounds at the bar. Just in case things get crazy, you have a tight-lipped friend on stand by who knows where the bail money's stashed.
"Sex in the air I don't care/I love the smell of it/Sticks and stones may break my bones/But chains and whips excite me" From "S&M"
Let me guess: You were first in line to see Fifty Shades of Grey.
"Want you to make me feel/Like I'm the only girl in the world/Like I'm the only girl that you'll ever love/Like I'm the only one who knows your heart/Only one" From "Only Girl (In the World)"
This is indicative of someone who's very direct and in touch with her needs. Your communication skills are on fleek, and you don't beat around the bush when making your desires known. Anyone would be lucky to have a girl like you. You might be a whole lot to handle, but you're definitely worth the effort.
"But the hottest bitch in heels right here/No fear/And while you getting your cry on/I'm getting my fly on" From "Hard"
You wouldn't be caught dead carrying your heels in your hand after a long night out on the town, even if your swollen toes resemble tiny sausages. Besides, they're probably numb anyway.
"Cake, cake, cake, cake/Cake, cake, cake, cake..." From "Birthday Cake"
If this is your favorite Rihanna lyric, everyone knows that when you mention your sweet tooth that just like Rih Rih, it has absolutely nothing to do with food.
