Los Angeles - Rihanna insists she doesn't dress daringly for attention.
The We Found Love singer hit the headlines earlier this week when she donned a see-through black top and no bra.
But despite the controversy, the 24-year-old singer insists she doesn't dress to shock - she just wears what she feels comfortable in, even if it leaves little to the imagination.
She explained: "Dressing is always so spontaneous, it always depends on the mood, plus the occasion, plus your little bad-ass daring touch that I like to put on my outfit every time.
"I don't do things for the response or for the controversy. I just live my life."
She continued: "The clothes that I like and the clothes that I'm attracted to sometimes are sheer, sometimes are bold, sometimes they're very daring.
"I'm okay with buying a sheer shirt, because if I bought it sheer, that means I was okay with you seeing through it. Someone else might wear it with a bra, someone else might wear it with a tank top, someone might wear it with booby tape, someone might wear it with none, and I happen to fall in that category."
And she admits she often goes bra-less, but only in the name of fashion.
Talking to Access Hollywood she added: "I get caught a lot of times without wearing a bra...but it was never my intention. If I don't wear a bra, that means I didn't want to wear a bra.
"It's not usually for attention, it's just because it would mess up the outfit completely."
