Rihanna - Rihanna driven paranoid by fame

Rihanna says fame has made her paranoid.

The Bajan pop princess thinks she's being constantly watched by paparazzi and has even started feeling uncomfortable in her own home because she imagines the photographers are peeking through her curtains.

She told the January issue of Britain's GLAMOUR magazine: ''There's stuff like not being able to walk around as I please. I feel like I'm being watched. Always. Like, I want to tan topless somewhere, and I know I probably could never do that.

''Even if I'm upstairs in my bedroom and the curtains are pulled, I feel like the paparazzo's outside on a boat somewhere or somebody's peeping.''

The 25-year-old singer admits she suffered an identity crisis a couple of years ago when the constant media attention started to make her lose her fearless attitude.

Rihanna said: ''I had to regain my fearlessness because it did go away for a bit. My mother said something to me a few years ago, 'I've seen something in your eyes I've never seen before: fear.' She was like, 'No, this is not you'. I just got back to being OK with myself.

''[I got back to how I was by] remembering what's important in life and understanding that we are all individuals with our own relationships to God. When that's clear, it's difficult to be bothered by what people think.''
