Rihanna , who is now in her third trimester of pregnancy, became the heroine of the new issue of American Vogue . On the cover, the singer poses in a lace Alaïa jumpsuit, and for a photo shoot (the author of the photo was the legendary Annie Leibovitz) inside the magazine, Rihanna tried on outfits by Marc Jacobs, Rick Owens, Saint Laurent, as well as a black chiffon dress created by Glenn Martens for Jean Paul Gaultier.
In an interview, Rihanna opened up about her pregnancy and her relationship with her baby’s father, A$AP Rocky. The singer noted that she has not yet noticed any changes in herself due to the fact that she will soon become a mother, and remains who she is.
Rihanna, indeed, does not change herself: the singer actively leads a social life and simply does not leave the pages of the fashion chronicle, surprising and sometimes shocking with her outfits.
When I found out that I was pregnant, I thought to myself: there is no way I will go shopping in any department for expectant mothers. Sorry, dressing up is way too much fun. I won’t let this part of my life disappear because my body is changing
Rihanna said, noting that her stylist is having a hard time now, because her volumes are changing quickly.
The celebrity also commented on one of the most viral outfits that everyone discussed – a transparent Dior dress, in which she appeared at the brand’s show in Paris.
To me, this dress is actually the most maternity wear I have ever worn. Until that moment, we had not addressed the image of a lady. So I thought, “Let’s make a lady!”
Rihanna’s interpretation of this look included chains and a choker, as well as thongs from her own brand Savage x Fenty.
Well, people would still see my panties. So it better be my brandSaid the singer.
When appearing in public, Rihanna now does not seek to wear closed things or hide her stomach – rather the opposite. For this, the singer is sometimes criticized online – some believe that she exposes her stomach too intrusively. But Rihanna disagrees.
My body is going through an incredible period right now and I’m not going to be ashamed of it. This time should be festive. Why should you hide your pregnancy?Rihanna was outraged.
Rihanna also revealed that the pregnancy was not planned.
I didn’t plan it, but I certainly don’t mind. I didn’t calculate when I ovulated and all that. We just had a good time
She also said that she was somewhat worried about possible postpartum depression, but so far she feels good – she was not tormented by toxicosis, and she copes with mood swings.
I was gearing up for something crazy because I knew I wasn’t going to have my normal routine, I couldn’t just go and smoke a joint right now. But I was pleasantly surprised that I could manage.Rihanna said.
The performer also touched on the topic of her relationship with A$AP Rocky, with whom she was just on friendly terms for a long time, although in an interview the rapper later noted that he always liked Rihanna in a romantic sense.
With me, people don’t get out of the friend zone very easily. And it certainly took me a while to realize how well I know him and how well he knows me, because we also understand how much trouble we can bring to each other,says the singer.
The singer admitted that everything changed with the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, when the world was in isolation. In the summer of 2020 (the same year there were rumors of a romance), they made a trip from Los Angeles to New York and were able to escape from the scrutiny of the public. At the same time, they behaved like the most ordinary tourists – they had a barbecue and bought food at gas stations.
During this time he became my family. There is no pretentious nonsense, we just live. I just feel that I can do everything next to him,
Rihanna admitted, noting that her mother also liked her chosen one at first sight.
At the same time, the singer recalled a funny incident, how A$AP Rocky showed her signs of attention when they were still just colleagues and performed together at the VMAs in 2012.
He grabbed my ass on stage. It wasn’t part of the rehearsal! I say: “What are you doing?!” My manager then said: “Oh my god, she definitely likes this guy, otherwise she would never let it go on the brakes,
The celebrity also admitted that now, contrary to expectations, she is more drawn to sweets than salty ones, and she cannot resist donuts. Although she also eats one salty dish with pleasure – these are tangerines with salt.
They have to be with salt and only with salt, because in Barbados we take fruits into the ocean and soak them. Trust me it’s a thing.
Rihanna shared her gastronomic preferences.
