Rihanna Gives Fans Some Seriously Solid Dating Advice
Rihanna talks relationships and body image in the September 2018 issue of British Vogue.
The 'Wild Thoughts' singer discussed everything from relationships to body image (psst, she even revealed the science behind that 'thicc' bod), leaving us armed with the knowledge to grab life by the balls, Riri style.
Rihanna chatted with the editor in chief, Edward Enninful (for what was his first September issue too), and she had some stellar words for anyone starting a relationship.
As reported by Buzzfeed, Riri said: "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 added: "A person can always get better, they can always get worse, but you’ve got to be fine with what you met them as."
Basically, if you're already tryin to change 'em... they probably ain't right for you.
Her wise words didn't end there.
The singer has never been afraid to address the topic of body image, from clapping back at fat-shamers to proclaiming "savages come in all shapes and sizes," when she dropped her 'Savage' lingerie line, and she touched upon the topic once again.
Edward asked her what it's like to be the woman other women "fancy," to which she responded: "Okay, you're asking the wrong person. I don't know, maybe it's because I'm 'thicc' now," she said.
Rihanna has opened up about her "fluctuating" body type in the past, and now she's dished further on some of the science behind body shapes.
"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," she revealed.
So there you have it, folks, bodies are imperfect, ever-evolving things that we should be hella proud of no matter what stage they're at.
This isn't the first time Riri has got real about her changing body.
Chatting to The Cut earlier this year, she explained: "I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day—the next week—I need something oversize; I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?"
Sure, it's not exactly a ground-breaking discovery that bodies don't stay the same, but we have to applaud Riri for making it known that it's OK to fluctuate. So whether you're snacking or gyming today, here's to loving your bod.
This gal is literally an endless source of wisdom.
