Rihanna tells Giant Magazine that she grew up with a crack addicted father, which kept her on the straight and narrow. She's calls her mom a very hard worker that tried to shield her from negative elements, but her very father was always home toiling with drugs, creating a very undesirable environment.
"I just knew that my mom and dad would always argue when there was a foil paper with an ashtray," she says. "He would just go into the bathroom all the time. I didn't know what it was. ... [But] he knew that to get closer to [his kids], he had to cut that out. And he did."
You stay on that straight and narrow and don't get anymore of those creepy tattoos.
