W-W-What Did She Say?: Rihanna - "Only Girl (In the World)" Lyric Conundrum (Poll)

I don't like to make a fool of myself. Thus I don't usually poke fun at people/things/websites unless I'm pretty sure I'm in the right. So when I mocked Pandora for listing the opening lyrics to Rihanna's "Only Girl (In the World)" as "I want you to love me like I'm a hot guy," I did so feeling pretty sure the ridiculous simile was in fact Rihanna's exhortation to be adored like one might a steaming hot "pie."

Strawberry fields forever...oooh, strawberry pie...


Turns out, a friend of mine is convinced the lyric in fact recalls the "Shut Up and Drive" singer's affinity for fast cars: "love me like I'm a hot ride." Possible. Very, very possible. None of these three makes a direct rhyme with the next line of the couplet, which continues: "Be thinkin' of me doing what you like," so in my opinion the jury is still out.

So, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I need your help in delivering a verdict.


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

EDIT: We have been made aware that the official lyric is
I want you to love me like I'm a hot ride.
We think it should have been "pie."
