Good Girl Gone Bad

Album: Good Girl Gone Bad (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • Men's Fitness magazine asked Rihanna if she really was a "good girl gone bad." She replied: "The title of the album represents my liberation. Being able to break out of the innocent image I was forced into. Now I'm just being me. I'm a little more rebellious. On the record you hear that I have a lot more attitude. So it matches the new sound, the new image, the new haircut... the new everything."
