Rihanna Likes a ‘Cultured’ Man, Says Men Need ‘Attention’


Rihanna is just like us—not really, but she does google stuff (like childbirth…we’ve all been there), she feels insecure sometimes and she explains what she wants in a man…just not right now!

Yes, Rihanna Google’s things like childbirth, she tells T Magazine. “‘Oh, random things. Like I will be sitting around Googling childbirth. Could be more random than childbirth. Childbirth is putting it the not-gross way. I was searching the size of certain things, and how much they expand, and then what happens after. …”

And she explained what turns her on in a guy. “I’m turned on by guys who are cultured. That’ll keep me intrigued. They don’t have to have a single degree, but they should speak other languages or know things about other parts of the world or history or certain artists or musicians. I like to be taught. I like to sit on that side of the table.’”

She also talks about relationships with guys. “Guys need attention. They need that nourishment, that little stroke of the ego that gets them by every now and then. I’ll give it to my family, I’ll give it to my work—but I will not give it to a man right now.”


And Rihanna still gets insecure with her career.”Only now are things hitting me, like I’m feeling them emotionally. I used to feel unsafe right in the moment of an accomplishment — I felt the ground fall from under my feet because this could be the end. And even now, while everyone is celebrating, I’m on to the next thing. I don’t want to get lost in this big cushion of success.”
