Rihanna might be the one in control of her successful life as singer and budding actress - but when's she's in the bedroom, just like the lyric from "What's My Name?," she likes for her man to "take it over."

"I play a very dominant role in my life, in every aspect of it. And I like to feel like a lady still, at some point," 23-year-old singer told Glamour Magazine's in its September issue.

"I feel like that's the time when a guy really gets to be a man, and I get to be a woman," she explained. "And if I'm being a man in the bedroom too, there's nothing really in it for me."

The singer, who recently wrapped the North American leg of her "Loud" tour, said she's OK with being a role model - to a point.

"I want to set the right example and, at the same time, live my life," she told the mag. "I feel like pop stars can't be rock stars anymore because they have to be role models, and it takes the fun out of it for us, because we just want to have fun with art."

On Monday, the singer surfaced in her hometown in Barbados, where she definitely appeared to be having fun in a skimpy bikini and lavish headdress. She celebrated at the Kadooment Day parade - part of the Crop Over Festival, which marks the end of the local sugar cane harvest. Check out the sexy pics, HERE!
