Plus she talks about Kanye West, Jay-Z, her new album and more...
Billboard reports that Rihanna spoke with fans in a live Facebook chat on Thursday night with Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen.
Cohen quizzed Rihanna with some quick answers on a number of subjects: Kanye West is a "genius"; Jay-Z, "even more genius"; Beyonce, "gorgeous"; Mariah Carey, "her voice is an instrument, unreal"; Mary J. Blige, "power"; Lady Gaga, "crazy, but I love that"; Madonna, an early influence, "queen"; Eminem, "the shit"; and Nicki Minaj? "Ass."
She also said that despite rumors, she and Chris Brown are "not together" although she added that he's "dope."
Rihanna also talked about how Unapologetic kept her focus strictly in the recording studio, "I was the worst friend. I wouldn't reply to my friends' texts, I had no service in the studio. I worked day and night and it was hard for me to pay attention to frivolous stuff like the blogs."
Rihanna also talked about Hurricane Sandy, stating, "It's really difficult to see something so tragic going on and not be able to do anything about it." Rihanna announced a $100,000 donation to the Food Bank for New York that she will make on Friday.
Her new album is due November 19 and she will preview it with a listening party at Jay-Z's 40/40 Club that will benefit the Daily News Hurricane Relief Fund.
