Rihanna may not know every detail of her 10-year plan, but kids are definitely in her future, even if she isn’t in a relationship.
The Baby Fever bug has reached Rihanna. The singer came on to the music scene 17 years ago and since that time, she’s built an empire. The Grammy Award-winning singer, actress, fashion designer, and beauty mogul has reached every career goal she’s set out to conquer. Fans are hoping for a new album sooner than later—and we previously reported that RiRi has stated that she’s “aggressively working” on her next project—but the next stage of Rihanna’s life will also include “three or four” children.

The May 2020 issue of British Vogue was created prior to the pandemic which has subsequently brought the world almost to a halt. In any case, we couldn’t imagine a better cover star than @BadGalRiri, an advocate for tolerance whose rallying cry has redefined every industry she’s turned her hand to, and whose generous spirit saw her make a $5 million donation to fight Covid-19 with her @ClaraLionelFdn earlier this month. In the new issue the multi-hyphenate talks to @AfuaHirsch about her forthcoming album, her desire to become a mother and why she won’t be pinned down. See the full story in the new issue, on newsstands and available for free digital download Friday 3 April, and read the full interview now at the link in bio. #Rihanna wears all @Burberry by @RiccardoTisci17 and a @StephenJonesMillinery durag.

Rihanna is the cover girl for British Vogue and in her feature, the singer was asked about what she’s learned as she’s gotten older. “Since I turned 32, I’m realizing life is really short,” she said. “You don’t have a lot of time to tolerate sh*t, you know? You put so much on your plate. When you’re overwhelmed, you need to start cutting things out. And I’m overwhelmed too much. What’s happening now is that I’m going back to black and white. My grey area is shutting down.”
She also revealed her 10-year plan. “I’ll be 42! I’ll be ancient. I’ll have kids—three or four of ’em.” Rihanna added that those babies are coming whether she has a partner or not. “I feel like society makes me want to feel like, ‘Oh, you got it wrong…’ They diminish you as a mother if there’s not a dad in your kids’ lives,” she said. “But the only thing that matters is happiness, that’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That’s the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love.”
