Rihanna’s Strategy for Accepting Her Body at Any Weight Is Goals

Rihanna is totally on top of the world. She’s a Grammy-winning singer, a movie star on the rise and a fashion and beauty icon with her own lingerie and makeup lines. Like any successful lady celeb, though, Rihanna faces a fair amount of critique for her physical appearance. She just has the confidence to love herself no matter how she looks, day in and day out.

Us Weekly reports that Rihanna graces the cover of British Vogue’s September 2018 issue; in the accompanying interview, she opens up about how her body changes and how she embraces its natural curves. When the magazine asked why she thinks so many fans have a crush on her, she said, “I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m ‘thicc’ now. I don’t know.”

“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.”

According to Us, Rihanna also told British Vogue, “You’ve just got to laugh at yourself, honestly. I mean, I know when I’m having a fat day and when I’ve lost weight. I accept all of the bodies.”
