Riri is known for showing off her curves on red carpets everywhere, as an advocate for body confidence.
And Rihanna has now admitted that she never wants to lose her famously ‘thicc’ figure, during her cover interview with British Vogue.
Posing in an array of quirky ensembles for the magazine, the singer, 30, discussed what its like being ‘the woman that everyone fancies’, and revealed she is proud to be a woman in the industry with ‘a butt and thighs’.
While she covered up her famous figure in the outfits, Rihanna told the magazine she feels confident with her frame, and hopes that she remains strong rather than skinny when she starts her new exercise regime.
When asked what its like to be such a pin-up, she said: ‘Ok, you’re asking the wrong person. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m ‘thicc’ now. I don’t know. ‘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. ‘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.’ Rihanna often turns heads with her killer figure, both in her music videos as well as recent film and red carpet appearances.
However, having been in the limelight since 2005, the Ocean’s Eight star said her attitude to life in the public eye has completely changed over the years, and she is now more wary of who she keeps close. ‘I’m very picky about friends,’ she explained. ‘I don’t like to open myself up to everyone and so when you find people who are great and loyal, you don’t want to let go of that.
‘I’ve been out here on my own since I was a teenager, so these people become like your family.’ While she has carved a career as both as a pop star and actress, Rihanna has been focusing on her make-up line Fenty Beauty in recent weeks.
Also releasing a spin-off lingerie collection, titled Savage x Fenty, the chart-topper revealed she wants to make women feel sexy and confident with her products.
