** (out of four) I'll start this by admitting upfront that I'm not Rihanna's target audience. Hell, If we're being completely transparent, I'm the guy trying to sleep with Rihanna's target audience. Now that I've gotten that out of the way: This album is a Frankenstein monster of "I am in charge of my sexuality and you can't do anything about it" chest-thumps (the title track) and "For the love of God, will you just do me already?" songs ("Birthday Cake" "Cockiness (Love It)"
