Half of Me
Rihanna Lyrics


You saw me on the television, setting fire to all the buildings
Yeah I guess you saw me stealing, but you've no idea what I've been needin'
Talk about when we were children, not the kind of kid that you believe in
You saw me on the television, saw me on the television
But that's just the half of it, yeah you saw the half of it
This is the life I live, and that's just the half of it

Saw me on the television, hanging out my dirty linen
You're entitled to your own opinion
Sit and shake your head at my decision
I guess the kind of songs that I've been singing
Make it seem as if I'm always winning
But you saw me on a television
Yeah you saw me on a television

But that's just the half of it
You saw the half of it
This is the life I live
And that's just the half of it

Oh you know me I'm the life of the party
Beautiful people surround me
Everybody falling in love
Oh you know me, everybody knows that I'm crazy
Sticks and stones they never break me
And I'm the type that don't give a fuck

And that's just the half of it
You saw the half of it
Yeah this is the life I live
And that's just the half of it

Yeah you saw the half of it
And this is the life I live
You saw the half of it
Only the half of it
Eh, oh, no

You saw me on the television
Saw me on the television

For those in the comments below that are saying they don't get the song, the point is we never know the full story. We the public are always exposed to our favorite artists worst moments on TV and then judge them off of that, when in reality - we've only seen them on TV "You saw me on the television setting fire to all the buildings" we only get half of the story. The TV shows their bad behavior, their issues, their problems..but we never see the other side. So what she's saying is, we're so quick to judge but we never know the full story, we've only seen their television persona "you saw me on the television....that's just the half of it.." 

Adrian Anderson

To me this song means never be quit to judge and never take things at face value. It's not just for celebrities, it's everyone. Imagine watching the news of someone committing suicide, people sometimes say they took the easy way out. Not really considering what they were going true. Imagine seeing someone on the TV for something negative like looting or destroying buildings, we don't stop to think why they did it. We paint them however we see fit. But that's just what we see, that's the half of it. We all go through stuff even celebrities. That's the half of me.
