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’?
