Hav­ing my Thicc Body comes with a price — Rihan­na


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 edi­tor in chief Edward Ennin­ful about being “thicc.”At one point dur­ing the con­ver­sa­tion, Ennin­ful 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.”

These com­ments come almost exact­ly a year after the Fen­ty Beau­ty founder opened up to The Cut about learn­ing to dress her ever-chang­ing body type. “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?” she said. “I real­ly pay atten­tion every day when I go into the clos­et about what’s work­ing for my body that morn­ing. I feel like that’s how every­one should go after fash­ion because it’s an indi­vid­ual thing. And then, if you take it fur­ther, it’s like: What week are you hav­ing? You hav­ing a skin­ny week? You hav­ing a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing over­size?”

Rihan­na also spoke to British Vogue about how, beyond being a queen of body-pos­i­tiv­i­ty, she also makes an effort to sur­round her­self with only the most equal­ly pos­i­tive peo­ple. “I’m very picky about friends. 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,” the 30-year-old said. “I’ve been out here on my own since I was a teenag­er, so these peo­ple become like your fam­i­ly.”

The Sep­tem­ber 2018 issue of British Vogue—fea­tur­ing Rihanna’s already-icon­ic cov­er images and the rest of her interview—hits news­stands this Fri­day, August 3.
