Sometimes I had to just stop recording because the lyrics were too deep. They would leave me in tears.
 COME HERE RUDE BOY, BOY IS YOU BIG ENOUGH

It is easy to juxtapose this quote against a silly lyrical phrase in an effort to appear smug or morally superior, but the majority of lyrics in mainstream music - even though rarely composed by the performer themselves - are still rife with dramatic emotion since it is this quality, in addition to production values, that sells tracks. Remember that a performer's job is to evoke loud, exaggerated emotion, as well, even if the performance is deemed frivolous or trite by the morally indignant ones - which, seemingly, compose a wide majority of the population.

Also remember that Rihanna has been through a very troubled relationship. Do you not feel similarly overwhelmed by emotion when your ex's song, however trite and apparently meaningless, plays on the radio?
