Rihanna explained in her own word why she looked so serious when she started to sing.
Being a role model for young girls, she tried to look serious. But that wasn’t her style and meanwhile became sassy. Let’s see her explanation about her style.
“In the beginning of my career, it was really strict for me. I couldn’t wear pink or red lipstick; it was just bizarre. We had a young fan base, and they were trying to keep me fresh. But I just really wanted to be myself. I wanted to be sassy, the attitude, all these things that I am.”
