Rihanna: 'There's a pack. It's me, Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyonce'

Update-Rihanna talks the ladies who dominate music, being a lady in the bedroom and being a role model in the September 2011 issue of Glamour.

On being a lady in the bedroom:
“I play a very dominant role in my life, in every aspect of it. And I like to feel like a lady still, at some point. I feel like that’s the time when a guy really gets to be a man, and I get to be a woman. And if I’m being a man in the bedroom too, there’s nothing really in it for me.”

On being a role model:
“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.”


“I want to set the right example and, at the same time, live my life….I feel like pop stars can’t be rock stars anymore because they have to be role models, and it takes the fun out of it for us, because we just want to have fun with art.”

On her friendship with Katy Perry, Rihanna states;
“All my friends are guys, to be completely honest. But when I met her, it was such a breath of fresh air,” Rihanna says of Katy. “I just couldn’t believe this chick had no edit button…. Katy and Lady Gaga came out of the gate exactly the way they think, the way they wanna dress, the way they wanna speak.”

In a recent Complex magazine interview, Beyonce stated that there was “room on this earth for many queens.” Rihanna has revealed who exactly runs the world,

“There’s a pack. It’s me, Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyoncé…who else? Ke$ha, for sure. Women are definitely dominating music right now, and that’s because we are competitive beings. I feel like music hasn’t been this exciting in a while.”

Did Rihanna leave anyone out of the ‘Pop Pack’?

    1. angela says:

      What has Britney dominated since 2004? Frappes and cheetos don’t count,

  5. I guess this hoe realizes Britney is Queen of the girls as to why she left her out of the ‘pop pact’. Lets not forgot who finally got S&M to #1… *sips tea*

    1. ThatBoyIsAMonster says:

      More like who rode the Rihanna train to a higher #1 hits count. Face it, all 5 of them destroy Britney right now. 🙂

      1. Suki says:

        Rihanna needed her to get that number one. That’s a fact and you shouldn’t argue with FACTS! LOLZ!!

      2. angela says:

        When Britney going to get her OWN number one?

    2. CalledOut says:

      Now now, Kingsley. Calm down. Brit’s had her fun, move on.

  6. beyonce forever says:

    britney hasnt ruled anything for 6 years. get over it. she’s a disaster these days, and her performances prove it. basically, she needs to retire.

    1. Jake says:

      Lol, a Beyonce fan saying Britney needs to retire.

      1. angela says:

        What are you implying, that Bey needs to retire? Poor Britney. Not even 30 and already past her prime.

  7. ummmm. says:

    If anything Beyonce & Gaga sh*t on Britney.

    & Damian, Nicki Minaj is a RAP ARTIST, Female MC or whatever. She is NOT a POP Artist.

    1. Toni says:

      No, she is a pop artist who can rap. Don’t forget that she sings as well. Most of these rap artists today are pop artists.

  8. beyonce forever says:

    funny that britards like to say “who got s&m to #1?” um RIHANNA did. when britney can get her OWN songs to #1 then we can talk. what happened to the Till The World Ends remix? LOL how much has Femme Fatale sold worldwide compared to 4? LOL

    1. Suki says:

      LMAO!! Till the world ends has sold over 2 million copies…one of the biggest hits of the year. I guess a Beyonce fan would know about hit singles!! lol Bey can’t get a hit single to save her life this year!!!

  9. beyonce forever says:

    britneys the queen alright…the queen of lip sync and arm dancing. delusion isn’t cute for you britards. and its especially fun to see your wigs get dragged by the other girls, especially Gaga. #beyonce4ever

  10. Julie says:

    Britney’s not part of the pack because she’s above it. She’s the Queen B.

  11. Sassy says:

    I would say the “pop pack” is the two B’s Beyonce and Britney and also lady gaga. i’ve been a fan of Britney’s 4ever and Beyonce because i think she is so talented she has a beautiful voice, and i love that Lady Gaga is so open about what she thinks. the rest i don’t really care about….

  12. Paul says:

    She left out the Queen of Pop music itself- Miss Britney Spears

  13. Judas says:

    GaGa slays harder!
    24 million albums…. in an age of pyracy!
    85 million singles
    5 worldwide number 1 singles
    3 worldwide number 1 albums
    14th best grossing tour of all time
    Bad Romance most played song on radio
    Only artist to have 3 songs pass the 5 million downloads mark in the US
    2nd most watched video of all time
    Born This Way (single) is the fastest selling song of all time
    Born This Way (album) has sold 4 million worldwide in just 2 months

    yes but Rihanna did leave out Queen Britney

  14. Suki says:

    GaGa’s ”album of the decade” is a huge flop. She deliberately left out Britney!! Brit has had four top tens this year alone. Her last tour makes Rihanna’s current tour look like a joke. When your in the game for 13 years and still killin it people are gonna be jealous. Plus Brit is humble and sweet.

  15. Slaydy Godga says:

    Hmmm Britards sound mad. Go out to the sunlight and venture off to your local magazine rack…who is on the covers of all the magazines right now? Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce, and Katy. They are dominating pop culture right now. Born This Way baby!!

  16. Magodnna says:

    You stupid Britney fans seem to forget the true queen of pop. Let’s go to the record books when it comes to Madonna vs. Shitney, huh?

    12 #1 singles
    300+ million records sold worldwide
    Highest grossing tour for a solo artist EVER
    Top selling female recording artist EVER
    etc etc etc

    You can’t give a QUEEN down.

    1. angela says:

      Madonna doesn’t have an album out at the moment, why bring her up?

  17. Huggo says:

    EXCUSE ME?
    hahahahahahaha… rihanna with California & man down FLOP ??? …..

    Beyonce with Who run the world & The best thin i had a SUPER FLOP ??? ….

    The pack is KATY ADELE GAGA & BRITNEY ……………..

  18. Jenny says:

    A list of pop queens without Britney Spears is irrelevant. Rihanna’s flopping now and she’s hardly a queen. The list should have been Britney, Gaga, Beyonce and maybe Katy.

  19. hello1 says:

    how about Rihanna actually get a #1 album??? or have a performance that everyone can talk about? Lady Gaga’s Born this Way sold more than Katy Perrys, Britney’s, Adele’s, and Rihanna’s first week sales combined!!!! Artists in every genre has respect for Lady Gaga be it Hip Hop, Country, Jazz, Rock, even Punk. Gaga can sing and WRITE her own music. Rihanna cant write a song and make it to #1.

    1. Toni says:

      Umm…did you also know that Gaga had one of the biggest, if not the biggest, sales drop in history for a major artist? That kinda of says that the album sucked. People have respect for the fact that she can sell music–not necessarily her talent per se. And most of them are bandwagoners. Get on board with Lady GaGa and you get fans. Adele has a far better album than LG, but LG has more fans because of what she stands for: Gay rights and the outcast–anyone different.

  20. Bob says:

    I find it hilarious that she thinks she, Katy Perry, and Ke$ha are in the same group as Beyonce. Beyonce, the lead singer of the most successful female band of all time, one of the most decorated Grammy Award winners in history, the woman who has inspired us with amazing music for over a decade and has never had a solo abum that did not reach number one. Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Ke$ha all make the same kind of music in the same box and can ony spawn hit singes, while Bey’s entire albums make the world turn upside down. Beyonce is a true icon and superstar who stays humble and down to earth, and you would never catch her saying an outrageous comment like this: she thinks there are numerous amazing females in the game and that there is enough room for all of them; she would not try to make herself ook better by forming a clique like Rihanna is trying to do.

    1. Toni says:

      Let’s make some corrections: Beyonce was apart of ONE of the most successful–she was NOT in the most successful female band of all time. Whether you like it or not, that belongs to the Spice Girls. Also, just because they were successful, doesn’t mean that they were that good.Destiny’s Child had some good songs, but they were catchy nothing with a lot of quality. (They did have some quality songs though) TLC was a better band. Beyonce herself is getting tiresome because her songs are all the same–there is little variation in what she sings about. Just because an artist hasn’t reached number one doesn’t make them any less of a great artist–not referring to Rihanna because I don’t really listen to her. Beyonce had good albums, but none of them are going of the greatest songs lists or at least the ones that are popular. As a performer, she will be cited ad an influence, but the writing isn’t very strong beyond hit making status. Just because Beyonce has a good personality, doesn’t mean she can’t be compared to other artists who do the same exact thing as her as far as music goes. Musically, she’s not any different. Also, her albums do not turn the world upside down–only those who don’t know how to analyze and break down a song.

  21. Luis says:

    What about a song that has Britney, GaGa, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Katy?
    Just not adding Kesha.
    Because Ke$ha would ruin it.

  22. Hush says:

    Rihanna … You don’t know how much i hate you

  23. Mike says:

    OmG! I lol’d so hard at “Beyonce stated that there was room on this earth for many queens”.

    Sorry “Honey B” there’s only space for one Queen Of Pop and that’s… MADONNA!

    1. Zach says:

      I totally agree, but I have to fix ONE thing. It’s not Queen B, it’s KING B.
