Rihanna fans are excited about a new album from the Barbados-born singer, she announced today (October 4th) the title of her upcoming album, Talk That Talk,  to be released on November 21st.

Rihanna also opens up in an interview about a discussion with her personal make up artist who begged her to stop using the foul four-letter ‘C’ word as a term of endearment.

Rihanna clamied she had no idea was so offensive in the interview. She insists locals in her native Barbados use the slang word for female genitalia frequently – and she was stunned when she learned exactly what it meant as her career took off.

The superstar tells the British Vouge mag, “That word is so offensive to everyone in the world except for Bajans. You know African-Americans use the N-word to their brothers? Well, that’s the way we use the C-word. When I first came here, I was saying it like it was nothing, like, ‘Hey, c***’, until my make-up artist finally had to tell me to stop.”
