AOL: Let's talk about 'Rated R.' Do you feel like people understand what you're trying to do?
Rihanna: Definitely. When we first made 'Rated R,' I kind of braced myself, prepared myself for it to be a culture shock to people's ears, especially my fans, who are used to the type of music that I have been doing so far. I knew it would have taken a while before people got into it and got into the new music, the new sound, the new look, and now people are getting it and it's the best feeling. The album is doing really well all over the world, and that's the best revenge.
AOL: Is the girl that sang 'Umbrella' gone?
Rihanna: No, I'm the same girl that sang 'Umbrella.' It's me, Rihanna, and I just grow. When I did 'Umbrella' I was 19 and now I'm about to be 22 years old. There's a lot that changes in three years and I'm looking forward to what's next.
AOL: Do you want to do movies and if so, what's your ideal role?
Rihanna: Movies are definitely something that I want to get into soon. My ideal role, I actually love comedy. I'm pretty much like a prankster so that's the whole new world that I'd love to venture off into. But action and stuff like that, things that are cool, comic book movies -- stuff that's interesting.
AOL: Do you have a role in mind? Do you want to play an action hero?
Rihanna: Who knows? Whatever they throw my way, I'll take it.
