In has surfaced today that Rihanna used to play her new songs to three-year-old children and get them to choose which one they liked best.
Yep, you heard that right.
The Four Five Seconds hitmaker told Contact Music that she found playing her music to youngsters was a good indicator as to what would do well because she knew it meant they had ''great melodies''.
''I'd play my songs to my A&R's kids and see which ones they'd react to. They were three-years-old. Kids just love great melodies.''
She explained: ''I can't make a song for a particular person or demographic. If I love it, I'm gonna do it. I have to perform it for the rest of my life."
She also made the funny comparison of her songs being like tattoos.
''A song is like a tattoo – you can never get away from it. You can't stand behind something you don't believe in. You can pretend for a little while, but there's always going to be resentment. I can be who I am and sleep at night, knowing there's no pressure to be anything else.''
Whatever floats your boat Rihanna!
