London: Rihanna has hit out at people who criticise her for being sexy and insisted that she won`t mellow down her raunchy avatar to please anyone.

The `Umbrella` hitmaker, who is famous for her revealing stage outfits and bold fashion choices is proud of her body and insists girls who attack her online are "hypocrites" and "unhappy with themselves", reported GQ magazine.

"People think I`m overly sexy. It bothers them for some reason. Girls don`t like to see other girls dressed sexy. It`s a little intimidating. There`s always going to be somebody not liking what you do. People have a lot of crazy opinions on things. Things I say, things I wear, places I go. It`s just stupid," Rihanna said.

"I`m a 22-year-old human being. It`s fine for me to go to a club. People are hypocrites. They can`t wait to say something horrible. Most of them are unhappy with themselves. It`s women who are mad at other women. They should take a look at their own lives. A lot of people don`t have the guts to confront themselves," she added.

Though her online critics make her angry, the singer does accept the fact that her overtly sexual image could annoy people but can`t help it.

"Public figures can become annoying. They see me a lot and every time they see me and my assets, so it can get a little irritating. I get that. But I have to do what makes me happy, what I feel like doing," she added.
