Rihanna appears on the cover of the September 2018 issue of British Vogue, and besides reinventing the ’90s pin-thin eyebrow, she got real in the interview with some no-nonsense dating advice. Rihanna most famously dated Drake but has recently been linked to billionaire Hassan Jameel. She’s always been very low-key about her relationships, which is perhaps why Ri admitted to British Vogue that fans often ask her for relationship advice. We have no idea what people were expecting from the star, but we’re loving her no BS approach to dating.
Later in the interview, when British Vogue editor in chief Edward Enninful asked Rihanna how she became everyone’s girl crush, the multi-hyphenate laughed and said, “OK, you’re asking the wrong person. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m ‘thicc’ now. I don’t know.”
Rihanna’s admission that she’s “‘thicc’ now” came with an equally no-nonsense approach to body-love.
Whether it’s her relationship or her curves, Rihanna self-aware attitude is deeply refreshing to hear.
