Rihanna told The Sun
December 4, 2009 that having such personal lyrics meant that the recording process wasn't always easy. She said: "There are lots of emotions and things that go through your mind, things that you don't want people to know about. On songs like 'Stupid In Love
', 'Fire Bomb
', 'The Last Song' and 'Cold Case Love', they get really personal. I'm able to listen back to it now but in the beginning it was really weird. I couldn't even listen to demos or anything. It was too deep for me. I kept having to leave the studio when people wanted to listen to the songs."
