Rihanna vows never to cry in public

London: Pop star Rihanna says she will never let her fans see her cry because she does not wish to show her vulnerable side to the public.

She has become famous for her feisty and aggressive persona ever since she bounced back from her beating at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in February 2009.

"I do have a vulnerable side. I think a lot of people have a misperception of me. They only see the tough, defensive, aggressive side, but every woman is vulnerable," a website quoted Rihanna as saying.

The singer keeps her emotions hidden while she`s in the spotlight because she does not wish to be viewed as weak.

"I just don`t like people to see me cry, I don`t like to let them know when I`m bothered. I just prefer it to be all about business," she said.
