Rihanna Talks About Her Weight Gain With New York Magazine
RihRih was recently profiled by The Cut while promoting her new Fenty University line. During the Q&A Rihanna makes reference to her more curvaceous shape… Peep some of the excerpts below:
So, you’re teaching a Fenty University master class. What would you want to tell young girls about how to wear clothing that fits their bodies, but also makes them feel good?
Well, 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 oversized; I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?
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 oversized?
I love to play with silhouettes as well, but I think it’s important to make sure that you wear the thing that works for your body the best, and that’s flattering.
Are you seeing any trends on Instagram? Or have you seen anything on Instagram recently that’s inspired you?
Instagram is the death of all trends. Once it gets there, it’s too late. It’s gone. I’m so over it. I can’t; I can’t deal.
What do you do when you’ve had a really bad week? How do you cope and center yourself again?
I pray a lot. A lot. And I try to just look at every situation like there’s some reason behind it. Even if I can’t feel it in that moment, I just thank God anyway, because I know that there’s something better coming, and he’s doing it for my good. I just don’t understand it right now. I look forward to when it’s revealed to me.
Well isn’t it good to know RihRih is a praying woman?! Does it surprise you that Rihanna would even think about “hiding” any part of her body? It’s good that she loves and embraces her curves though riiiiiight?
