Cheryl Cole Admires Rihanna’s ‘Don’t Give a F**k’ Attitude

British singer Cheryl Cole has spoken on how she really admires Rihanna. She loves that Rihanna doesn’t care about the people who criticize her, be it about her music or her fashion choices – Cheryl is wowed by Rihanna’s carefree attitude and loves that Rihanna always seems to act as free as possible:

”You know what I love about Rihanna? I know she gets a lot of criticism, too, about what she wears and what she sings about, but she is so free. She doesn’t give two f**ks. I love that in her. I love that sense of freedom about her. She’s gorgeous and free. A perfect pop star.”

Cheryl thinks she has a lot in common with Rihanna because they’ve both had difficult relationships to deal with in the public eye, however she thinks Rihanna might have benefited from that because her free-spirited side has shone through and allowed her to really be herself, while Rihanna also doesn’t allow herself to be preoccupied by haters:

”She’s been through the same thing absolutely. And you can imagine how intense it is when all the world’s eyes are on you. So she knows that feeling. But she’s free-spirited, she just doesn’t give a s**t. Maybe it’s going through everything she’s gone through that has enabled her to get to that point. She’s like, ‘Whatever. What more can you say about us? You can’t hurt us any more.’ I love that about her. It’s liberating. She’s liberal.”
