*Rihanna followed her performance at Tuesday’s “Concert For Valor: Saluting America’s Veterans” on the National Mall with a meet-and-greet Wednesday at nearby Fort Belvoir in Virginia to promote her new fragrance, “Rogue Man.”

“I feel like what better way to get these people excited than to get them something nice, to smell good. They’re running around all day working hard. And, you know, the guys are sexy. They need to smell sexy,” she told the AP.

She also joked about not having a “rogue man” of her own, saying with a wink, “hopefully I’ll find one here today on the base.”

Riri was also asked about her plans to release a new album.

“I can’t give you any hints of when it will drop. It’s going to be great, that’s all I’m going to tell you and I’m excited about it,” she said. “I try to battle myself and outdo everything I’ve done and that’s been the hardest thing to do. You start overthinking things at times.”

The 26-year-old typically has released albums in November in the past but wouldn’t comment on that. She just said, “I can’t wait for everybody to hear (the music) little by little. … little by little. I can’t wait.”
