With the release of her 'Talk That That' album just around the corner, Rihanna sat down with Ryan Seacrest and went into detail about her image overhaul. "I kinda just wanted to scale right back instead of having a look," shared the songstress. "I didn't want to make it such a big deal about what hair color or what cut [I have]. I just wanted to go right back to something simple and something flexible, something a little more natural."
"It's more about the music," continues Ri. "I don't want to become a gimmick -- ever. Well, I ran out of [hair] colors, so that's why I decided to go back to my natural color. I'm just really having fun with the music and the style is a lot more accessible. It's more lifestyle, it's not so much a look or a costume, which I really enjoy."
Ri's music will be in the forefront of her life for the next few weeks. During the whirlwind promo tour for 'Talk That Talk," Rihanna will be returning from the European leg of her Loud tour to make appearances on 'The X-Factor' and the 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show.'
