Rihanna covers the new issue of NME and predictably, the mag had her pose for one of her signature "we get it, you smoke weed!" photos.

In this case, it’s particularly fitting, as RiRi gives a revealing interview in which she discusses her bad girl image, and the various ways that she’s not like Taylor Swift.

As you’ve probably heard Taylor has featured a ton of guests on her current tour. When asked if she would accept an invitation to perform alongside Swift, Rihanna replied in the most boss way possible:

"I don’t think I would," Rih said. "I just don’t think it makes sense. I don’t think our brands are the same: I don’t think they match, I don’t think our audiences are the same. In my mind she’s a role model, I’m not."

It’s true. We can’t think of two female pop artists who have less in common than Rihanna and Taylor Swift.

In fact, that might be a good modern-day "Beatles vs. Stones" getting-to-know-you question:

Are you a Rihanna person or a Taylor Swift person? Your answer could say a lot about you.
