A number of topics are explored in the lengthy, revealing conversation, which was conducted over the phone a few weeks ago while West was in a London studio working on his forthcoming album Watch the Throne - a full-length collaboration with fellow superstar Jay-Z - and Rihanna was between rehearsals for her appearance on "Saturday Night Live." They chat about fashion (Rihanna is "over the whole structured clothing, overly shoulder-padded sh--"), sexuality ("How does it feel to know that you can turn straight women gay?" West asks) and lyrics ("I think a lot of people have a misperception of me," Rihanna says. "They only see the tough, defensive, aggressive side. But every woman is vulnerable.").
