Rihanna lyric confusion

What we know: Rihanna's Only Girl In The World is a roaring return to raciness after the bleak-and-potatoes dirge of Rated R (Rude Boy excepted).

What we don't know: The words to the first line.

Various internet lyric sites think Rihanna's opening gambit is "I want you to love me like I'm a hot guy". A striking juxtaposition but probably not what the Barbadan starlet intended.

"Hello, potential suitor. I would like you to pretend for a moment that you are not sexually attracted to hot women like me and instead prefer the cock. Next, imagine that I am not (as previously noted) an hot woman. I am instead a virile man that wants to give you a rough kiss and a firm slap on the bottom. You like that, don't you? Yeah baby. That's right... Now STEP BACK IN AMAZEMENT as it is revealed that I am not a toned and ripped hunk of love, but am in fact internationally renowned pop strumpet Rihanna and I am standing in front of you in only my bra!!! Fancy me now? Or are you just very, very confused and little bit queasy?"

Hmmm... Perhaps not. After studying the video, it seems that Rihanna could be singing "I want you love me like I'm a hot ride", going back to the cars-as-sex metaphors of Shut Up And Drive.

But the following couplet, summoned from my own brain when the song premiered last month, should henceforth be considered the only official version.

I want you to love me like I'm a hot pie

Oh yes, here is the video. She's in a field of her own. The images flash pasture eyes. It's prairie good [I think that's quite enough - terrible pun ed]
