Didn’t she tell you she was a savage?!
According to Rih, despite the current COVID state of affairs, it was important that she put together the runway show to lift spirits.
“People need a little bit of hope,” Rihanna said in an interview with The Associated Press. “They need a little bit of happiness, and if we can bring a smile to their face and a little bit of fun, while they’re at home, stuck at home, it’s a desire and an honor to be a part of that.”
She also spoke with AP about her long, looooooong, loooooooong anticipated #R9 album. According to Rih, who hasn’t released a project in FOUR WHOLE YEARS, she “wants to have fun” with her music and asks herself questions like;
“What do I feel personally?” said Rih. What do I want to put out, and as an artist, how do I want to play it with my art? How do I want to interpret that?”
“How do I want to reimagine it because it’s been so structured before. “You do pop, you did this genre, you do that, you do radio, but now it’s just like, what makes me happy? I just want to have fun with music. Everything is so heavy. The world that we live in is a lot. It’s overwhelming every single day. And with the music, I’m using that as my outlet.”
