Rihanna Claims "Women Are Dominating Music"

Rihanna Claims "Women Are Dominating Music"

The singer praises Beyoncé, Gaga and Katy Perry.

Published July 30, 2011

She's every man's fantasy, but Rihanna is feeling the girl power these days. The pop singer, who is currently on her LOUD! tour, spoke to Glamour magazine about her assessment of the music scene: “Women are definitely dominating music right now," she declares. "That’s because we are competitive beings. I feel like music hasn’t been this exciting in a while.”

According to RiRi, who's running this town? “There’s a pack. It’s me, (Lady) Gaga, Katy Perry, Beyoncé… who else? Ke$ha for sure." Nice of her to name-check so many of her peers, but she saved her highest praise for BFF, Katy Perry. “All my friends are guys, to be completely honest. But when I met her, it was such a breath of fresh air. I just couldn’t believe this chick had no edit button."

Her competition aside, Rihanna can rest assured that there's only room for one at the very top…and, for now, that spot is hers.
