Rihanna Says Motherhood is a “Head f**k” and Other Takeaways From Her British Vogue Interview
Rihanna made headlines all day yesterday when her family appeared on the cover of British Vogue. The photos of she, A$AP Rocky and her baby boy went viral as well as her interview for the British Vogue cover story were trending all over social media. Here are some of the biggest takeaways from the interview:
Rihanna says A$AP Rocky definitely wanted a son: “Rocky wanted to know. He wanted a boy. At first he was open, then he was like, ‘Nah, I want a boy, I’m sure.’ I was just like, ‘Lord, please let this man get what he wants.”
In regards to the Super Bowl halftime show, Rihanna says the NFL still has a lot of healing to do, adding “There’s still a lot of mending to be done in my eyes,” she says of the NFL, having previously turned down the Halftime Show in solidarity with #ColinKaepernick. “But it’s powerful to break those doors, and have representation at such a high, high level and a consistent level.”
When speaking of her relationship with A$AP Rocky, Rihanna says having a baby has made them closer: “We have to be on the same page, but we’ve always kind of had that in our relationship. Everything changes when you have a baby, but I wouldn’t say it’s done anything but made us closer.”
Rihanna says right now, in her life, she’s the happiest she’s ever been and that giving birth was an actual “head f**k”: The “head-f**k” was real though. “I cannot believe it,” she says, still floored by the experience. “Essentially, from one person I became two. You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It’s nuts.”
And when talking about A$AP Rocky, Rihanna says “We’re best friends with a baby.”
