RIHANNA LOUD AS EVER – By James Logan, edited by Reena Combo This is probably Rihanna’s most open interview ever. The singing sensation talks openly to Ikonz World about growing up with her cocaine addicted father, the love for her mother, her new red locks, the release of Loud and much more.   How did having a father, who was addicted to crack cocaine and who beat your mother, affect you, growing up, and shaped you as a person?

How did you come to meet Jay Sean and decide to do a track together? Well Jay Sean and I have been friends for quite a few years now actually.
