Rihanna has never been one to shy away from discussing (or joking about) her fluctuating body type.” And in her history-making cover interview for the September 2018 issue of British Vogue, she spoke to the editor in chief Edward Enninful about having the type of curves that make other women jealous.
At one point during the conversation, Enninful reportedly asked Rihanna what it’s like to be the woman other women “fancy,” E! News reports. “Okay, you’re asking the wrong person,” she replied. “I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m ‘thicc’ now. I don’t know.” RiRi went on to discuss her worries about how quickly that “thicc” figure can disappear. “I’m about to get back into the gym and stuff, and I hope I don’t lose my butt or my hips or all of my thighs. I’ll lose some, but not all,” she said. “And I think of my boobs, like, ‘Imma lose everything, everything goes!’ But, you know, it comes with a price. You want to have a butt, then you have a gut.”
With Rihanna’s dating life being in the public eye, advice on the subject is sensible. When it comes to getting into a relationship with a man, Riri finds importance in accepting a person for who they are before making the decision to grow with them.
“I think a lot of people meet people and then they’re dating the idea of what the person could become, and that person never shows up and then they’re just mad disappointed,” she said. “A person can always get better, they can always get worse, but you’ve got to be fine with what you met them as.”
