"Stupid in Love" as written by Shaffer Smith, Mikkel Storleer Eriksen and Tor Erik Hermansen....
Hmm stupid in love
Oh, stupid in love, hmm

Let me tell you something
Never, have I ever
Been a size ten in my whole life
I left the engine running
I just came to see
What you would do if I
Gave you a chance to make things right
So I made it, even though Katy
Told me that this would be nothing but a waste of time
And she was right, hmm
Don't understand it blood on your hands
And still you insist on repeatedly trying
To tell me lies
And I just don't know why, oh

This is stupid, I'm not stupid
Don't talk to me like I'm stupid
I still love you, but I just can't do this
I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid

My new nickname is "You Idiot" (such an idiot)
Hmm that's what my friends are calling me when
They see me yelling into my phone
They're telling me let go
He is not the one
I thought I saw your potential
Guess that's what made me dumb
He don't want it, not like you want it
Scheming and cheating oh girl
Why do you waste your time?
You know he ain't right
You telling me this, I don't wanna listen
But you insist on repeatedly trying
To tell me lies
And I just don't know why

This is stupid, I'm not stupid
Don't talk to me like I'm stupid
I still love you, but I just can't do this
I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid

Trying to make this work
But you act like a jerk
Silly of me to keep holding on (oh)
But the dunce cap is off
You don't know what you've lost
And you won't realize
Till I'm gone, gone, gone
That I was the one
Which one of us is really dumb

Oh ooh
No
No
No, I'm not stupid in love

This is stupid, I'm not stupid
Don't talk to me like I'm stupid
I still love you, but I just can't do this
I may be dumb, but I'm not stupid

I may be dumb but
I'm not stupid in love

    General CommentThis is a great song, lyrics by Ne-Yo & Stargate.
    It clearly fits Rihanna's perspective well, but one should keep in mind that this song was not even originally written for her, hence the lyrics weren't written with her in mind, but could surely be related to by her.
    This song was offered first to Brandy (You can hear Brandy's version of it on youtube), and after was passed on to Rihanna.
    Great track, the minor key and signature stargate arrangements are reminiscent of Unfaithful and Cry.

    General CommentI'm really glad Rihanna chose to write about her experience with a really bad relationship. I can relate, as can a good majority of the world. The song is just about her coming to terms with the fact that it's just plain stupid to stay with this guy and keep giving him more chances. He is obviously not a good guy and not the right guy for her. She is basically saying, I've done some dumb things, I've let you take advantage of me all this time, but I'm not stupid enough to take you back again, I'm done.

    General Comment"So I made it even though Katy

    Pretty sure this a reference to Katy Perry, since they're good friends.

    General CommentI think it's about a guy who is cheating on a girl, but she doesn't want to give up on the love. She want's to make it work, she tries to convince herself that he's the one, but he keeps on cheating. So basically she's saying that she isn't going to stay with him because he's a cheater, liar, etc. like some women would.

    General CommentDoes anybody understand the reference about not being a size 10? It seems totally irrelevant to the point of the song...I must be missing something?

    General CommentIts a song about her vulnerability during a tough time.. knowing that she shouldn't love someone, but she can't help it.

    Kinda interesting how she says "Katy".. since Katy Perry is a good friend of hers and she was there for her after the whole Chris Brown situation.

    General Commentits about her relationship with chris brown and how after he abused her, he tried to keep her and she wanted to stay cause she still loved him, but what he had done had hurt her too much and she wasnt "stupid" enough to stay.

    General CommentI see this as what her friends and fans thought of her when she got back w/ Chris Brown.

    General CommentI am assuming its the american size 10 (which in the UK is a size 14) so i guess some of the comments Chris Brown made to her had been about her size saying she was fat or something? Thats how i interpret the meaning of it.
