Rihanna sat down with MTV Korea and talked about what sound she wants to go for—or, rather, get back to—for her next album. “I love pop music,” Ms. Fenty, who turned 22 on Saturday, told the network. Phew! We dig the smooth reggae-inflected bounce of “Rude Boy,” but let’s face it—”Hard” and “Russian Roulette” were kind of downers.
Hear the rest of what Rihanna had to say about her future musical direction—and watch her get entertained by little stripper “Bridget The Midget” (yes, it’s every bit as hot as it sounds) for her birthday—after the jump.
“Rated R, I love the sound of it, in terms of the bass,” Rihanna says in the clip above. “I really like the bottom, the grime of it. But if I were to combine that with more energetic, up-tempo pop records, then I think that will be a happy marriage. And that’s where we’ll probably go next.”
That’s really great, Ri Ri. But let’s get to what’s important—the stripper.
TMZ posted the following vid of Rihanna holding a glass of bubbly and getting some bump and grind action by pint-sized porn star Bridget The Midget in Scottsdale, Arizona, over the weekend. (And don’t worry—unlike the title of Ri’s latest LP, this clip is pretty much Rated PG.)
