Rihanna 'Not Getting Any Action'

Raunchy Rihanna has put the filthy lyrics in her last album down to the fact that she wasn't getting enough sex.

The 24-year-old, who claims she is a "fearless" lover, says her naughty music made up for her lack of bedroom antics.

She told The Sun: "My last album Talk That Talk was true to where my head was at that moment, like all my albums. I was having a lot of naughty thoughts - because I wasn't getting any action. That came out in the music."

The Barbadian beauty, whose lyrics include "Let me grab my t** while you sit on top" and "Sex in the air, I don't care, I love the smell of it. Sticks and stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me", has never been shy about singing out her sexual fantasies.

And she is apparently always keen to satisfy herself in the bedroom. She says: "People get into the idea of pleasing others, and forget about pleasing themselves.

"I think my best quality is being daring, spontaneous, risky and fearless. It's empowering when you do it. To me, sex is power."
