I’d been campaigning for Rihanna‘s hi-octane Rated R power ballad “Fire Bomb” to be released as a single all summer long last year. It’s nice to know that someone else agreed with me…
GLAMOUR: Now all these impressionable young girls are singing your songs. Which do you hope they’re singing?
RIHANNA: “Fire Bomb” is one of my favorite songs. It kills me that it was never a single. It’s not the most positive message; it’s just honest. It’s about wanting revenge, because you just feel like no one can understand what you’re feeling unless you burn them the way they burned you. And that was at a time when I didn’t really want to be angry but I couldn’t help it, and “Fire Bomb” [released in 2009] was like that therapeutic song for me.
