Rihanna has slammed reports that she is having financial problems this week while also admitting that life on top of the charts is lonely. “You canât get away from the business side. It takes over. The minute you get into the business side, it becomes you” says the singer who has been accussed of paying for her own music videos. Rumors of financial trouble began to hit the net this summer, at one point calling the singer out for using tour money to pay for music videos that her record label had allegedly pulled the plug on. Refuting the rumors, Rihanna says “I get business reports all the time because itâs my money. And I stay on top by living it, breathing it, thinking about it every day and every night.” While Rihanna’s bank balance appears to be in order, the singer says balancing her love life is hard and “lonely.” Despite being extra friendly with her “best friend” Chris Brown, Rihanna says “I do get lonely sitting around in hotels in cities I don’t know. I don’t have time to date.” Blaming her schedule Rihanna admits “It’s not all honey. I’ve had no more than seven days off in the past 18 months. My schedule is punishing.” The “Disturbia” singer’s schedule shows no sign of letting up anytime soon. Rihanna is gearing up for a tour with Chris Brown later this year, while also working on the follow up to “Good Girl Gone Bad” which she says will be even more edgy. “My next album will take it up a notch. I want to keep growing. I donât want to get stuck. I want to change.” Rihanna’s next album is slated for release early 2009.
