Rihanna's advice to her younger self is hilariously relatable
Whether she's picking up another Grammy award, or delivering a sartorial touchdown, Rihanna has certainly mastered the art of having multiple hyphens to her name. Between her role in the all-female Oceans Eight, and her recent stab at entrepreneurship - Rihanna launched Fenty beauty last year, a makeup range which provides POC with the most diverse range of shades seen in a commercial venture - it's evident that the pop-star is one of the few artists to successfully blur the lines of what it means to be a celebrity in 2018.
Rihanna hosted her annual Diamond Ball last week to benefit the Clara Lionel Foundation, and spoke to E! News on the red carpet, where she was quizzed on what advice she'd give her younger self. But instead of waxing lyrical about the benefits of practicing yoga or mindfulness, she kept it real, because boy is she a busy woman.
"Sleep," Rihanna bluntly replied. "Because you're not gonna get to do it in your twenties or your thirties, the way my thirties are starting out."
But although the pop-star has such a packed schedule, she wouldn't have it any other way. "It's been hectic but I love it," she continued. "I love to do stuff. I get bored otherwise, so I like to keep myself busy."
Amen to that.
If you're craving more unfiltered Rihanna, then you're in luck. The Work singer recently broke up with her billionaire boyfriend, and the people of the internet were all for her reasoning.
MediaTakeout News has reported that the songstress called off her rumoured relationship with Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel because she "gets tired of men sometimes". And while there is no way of telling if this is the real reason behind the break-up, I think we can all agree that it's pretty relatable.
An inside source told the publication that "Rihanna and him were together for a while", but that it was the 30-year-old who ended the relationship.
"It was a good relationship, but now it's over," the source said. "Of course Rihanna broke his heart. That's what she does: break men's hearts. Rihanna just got tired of him. She gets tired of men sometimes."
Rumours that Rihanna was dating the Toyota heir started to circulate in June 2017, when the pair was spotted kissing in a pool in Spain. Shortly afterwards, they were seen on a date in Ibiza. Then, a source close to Rihanna claimed that they had already "been hooking up for a few months".
Although Rihanna never confirmed the relationship, she did hint at it in a recent interview with Vogue. "I used to feel guilty about taking personal time, but I also think I never met someone who was worth it before," she told the publication back in May.
Can Rihanna just be our big sister already?
