SANTA BARBARA, California - Rihanna had just finished performing before a less than sell-out crowd in the recently opened Earthquake 3.9 Arena in Santa Barbara.
She was sitting backstage in her dressing room when she agreed to an interview with Afro Sheen Magazine's Pomona Vox.
Miss Vox immediately asked about Ri-Ri's new hair style in which she literally had all of her hair chopped off.
Rihanna replied that she did it because she got tired of the entertainment media and many of her friends constantly saying how beautiful she looked with long flowing hair.
Vox was confused and stated that wasn't that what every woman wants to hear - that she is beautiful.
The Barbados beauty shook her head and said that she wants people to like her because she has an amazingly fantastic singing voice and not because she is one of the most beautiful women in the entire world.
She was asked if her statement didn't sound kind of conceited to her. She instantly replied in a bit of sarcastic manner that it is not conceited if it is the friggin truth.
Vox sensed a bit of hostility in the singer's voice. She then mentioned the fact that a lot of people had said that they did not like her seeing her hug ex-boyfriend Chris Brown at the recent MTV Music Video Awards Show.
Rihanna became a bit upset and her teeth actually started rattling inside her mouth. She said that truth be told she really and truly cut her hair as a message to Chris.
She revealed that Chris had recently texted her asking her to cut her hair if she still has deep feelings for him.
SIDENOTE: Nine out of ten therapists say that Rihanna is sending off the wrong message to her fellow females that it is okay for a man to hit a female and beat her so bad that she has to go to the hospital. Many high profile women such as Michelle Obama, Barbara Walters, Eva Longoria, and Mariah Carey say that if Rihanna goes back to Chris she had better never, ever complain the next time he uses her as a damn punching bag.
