After Kansas-bred emcee XV revealed he would make Grammy-winning singer Rihanna his celebrity crush last year, SOHH recently reached out to get his take on the Grammy-award winning singer's racy actions as of late.
Taking her recent slew of topless photos and weed-smoking hype into consideration, XV said he has fallen back on his celeb crush.
"I started falling back because I felt like I never was into the pretty girl that got all the attention and then strived off the attention," XV told SOHH. "I like the pretty girl that kinda acts like she doesn't know she's pretty. I feel like Nicki Minaj is kinda like that for some reason. Even though she's like mad swagged out, there's something about her whole aura and the fact she has a hype man that everyone wonders if she's banging. Because of that, I feel like she's really untouchable. That makes men want her even more. It's more of a turn-on for a guy when a girl doesn't know how cute she is. I feel like Rihanna had that at one point. [Now,] every time I'm on a blog, I see a new Rihanna picture every week. I don't like when music becomes a character. The idea's like, 'You're supposed to be the bad girl,' but don't become the bad girl like it's a character." (SOHH)
XV also emphasized the value of men and women alike staying true to themselves.
"It's just like me, I love comics, I love video games. If I wasn't rapping, I would be doing that," XV added. "It's not a part of me rapping. But I never want it to get to a point where I'm doing it just because it's part of me. I don't want to keep up with video games just because I have to. When any girl's doing that, it just becomes unsexy." (SOHH)
Last year, he told SOHH RiRi had won his attention over a photo he had seen of her at the time.
"Man, the biggest crush right now, I would have to say that girl Rihanna," XV revealed. "Yeah, Rihanna's got this red hair right now and it's just kind of working...I was never a big fan of Rihanna but I saw this picture of her [last Christmas] and she was real laid back and I was like, 'That chick's bad.' [laughs] ... She seems like she might be really cool. That's the thing that's really dope about her." (SOHH)
Prior to downplaying weed-smoking photos from this year's Coachella music festival, RiRi made headlines by unleashing topless shots via social platform Facebook.
Rihanna has continued her tradition of posting racy photos online, sharing photos of herself topless in a waterfall with her Facebook fans last night. Straight off her performance at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival over the weekend, it appears that the "Umbrella" singer took a moment to update her photo album on Facebook, posting a slew of photos from her vacation to Hawaii over the holidays. Several of the photos would get a PG-13 rating. (New York Post)
