Rihanna covers the March 2011 issue of London’s Fabulous Magazine, where she talks about her decision to dye her hair bright red and how she feels being labeled a sex symbol:
Regarding her red mane, she says, “I think I was ready for something new and loud and expressive. It’s really adventurous – I wanted something that was fun, you know. I didn’t want a normal hair colour. I’d had blonde and it was so boring. Black is still my favourite, but I was looking for a colour that was edgy. I guess it was just the place I was in at that time. I felt like being spontaneous, and I also wanted to go for something extreme. I couldn’t do green or purple or pink, so red was like the fine line between normal and extreme!”
