With her record Work staying at the top of the charts and the kick off of her Anti- Tour, we cannot get enough of Bad Gal Rih Rih. She graces the cover of Vogue once again and looks effortlessly beautiful in a gorgeous shimmery dress. In the April issue, Rihanna dishes about her most honest album Anti, inspirations for her unisex Puma line, and her rivalry with Beyonce.
There is no doubt Rihanna has grown tremendously from her “Pon de Replay” days and it is obvious in her newest album. Rih said she was tired of the regular Pop sound. The very first song on her album Considerationfeaturing songstress Sza, is what she refers to as a PSA.
“It might not be some automatic record that will be Top 40. But I felt like I earned the right to do that now” Rih told Vogue.
As for her booming Puma line, Rihanna emphasized the importance of a unisex clothing.
“Women feel empowered when they can do the things that are supposed to be only for men, you know? It breaks boundaries, it’s liberating, and it’s empowering when you feel like, Well, I can do that, too” she said.
Rumors swirled after Queen Bey dropped her politically driven video Formation coincidently after Rih released her album. Was Bey trying to steal her shine?! Rihanna dispels all misconceptions.
“Here’s the deal. They just get so excited to feast on something that’s negative. Something that’s competitive. Something that’s, you know, a rivalry. And that’s just not what I wake up to” she said.
Rihanna makes it clear, that it’s just not in her nature. She can only do her.
