Behati Prinsloo on 'crush' Rihanna: 'She doesn't give a what'

Behati Prinsloo isn’t afraid to give credit where credit is due, and the Victoria’s Secret angel definitely thinks Rihanna is worthy. The model was quick to list the Barbadian beauty as her ultimate “crush” in a recent interview, citing Rihanna’s devil-may-care attitude and generous personality after performing at the 2012 VS Fashion Show.

“I think Rihanna,” she told Us Weekly, who questioned her on the subject. “What else to say? It’s about the attitude too, she’s got it all. She doesn’t give a what.”

Behati, who is married to Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine, also opened up about what it was like working with Rihanna for the runway extravaganza, admitting that the models had been impressed at the Bajan beauty’s energy and talent.

“We were like ‘woohoo’! She was like ‘I’m going to show you guys’. She was awesome too, she was so nice and fun to hang out with,” said Behati.

“She was chill. We all like, hung out and she was very nice and she wanted to be with us,” continued the Namibian beauty. “It was actually fun – she wasn’t intimidated, she didn’t make us feel intimidated. It was a very girl-friendly environment. We had a good time with her.”

It comes as no surprise that Rihanna made quite the impression on the Victoria’s Secret models – the Diamonds singer has continually wowed in the fashion industry with her edgy style credentials.

Earlier this year she made history by becoming the first black woman to be the official face of Dior, joining a line-up of brand ambassadors including Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Mila Kunis and Marion Cotillard.

“It feels fantastic,” Rihanna told MTV News. “It is such a big deal for me, for my culture, for a lot of young girls of any colour. I think, to be acknowledged by Dior is just, it means a lot as a woman to feel beautiful, and elegant, and timeless.”
