Rihanna, A Forgotten Pop Star of the 00's, Covers T Magazine











Summary of the interview:
-Interviewer's Uber driver loves Rihanna, says she's super nice and is a soccer fan probably a Thorns fan.

-Rihanna Googles stuff about childbirth in her free time.

-She describes her relationship with success, ‘‘Only now are things hitting me, like I’m feeling them emotionally. I used to feel unsafe right in the moment of an accomplishment — I felt the ground fall from under my feet because this could be the end. And even now, while everyone is celebrating, I’m on to the next thing. I don’t want to get lost in this big cushion of success.’’

-Rihanna talks about what turns her on even though she maintains she has no time to date, "I’m turned on by guys who are cultured. That’ll keep me intrigued. They don’t have to have a single degree, but they should speak other languages or know things about other parts of the world or history or certain artists or musicians. I like to be taught.’’ OP wonders how Travis Scott figures into this…

-Talks about her mom, she says looking back now she doesn't know how her mother let her move in with people she barely knew to pursue her music career. Rihanna doesn't know if she could do that as a mother but is grateful it happened.

-Mama Fenty likes it when Rih is sassy and sticks up for herself.

-Rihanna touches on racism in the industry, "You know, when I started to experience the difference — or even have my race be highlighted — it was mostly when I would do business deals.’’ Business deals. Meaning that everyone’s cool with a young black woman singing, dancing, partying and looking hot, but that when it comes time to negotiate, to broker a deal, she is suddenly made aware of her blackness. ‘‘And, you know, that never ends, by the way. It’s still a thing. And it’s the thing that makes me want to prove people wrong. It almost excites me; I know what they’re expecting and I can’t wait to show them that I’m here to exceed those expectations.’’

-Interviewer basically leaves as member of the Navy, mentions to her driver that she asked his question about Rihanna going to West Africa sometime, and that Rihanna replied that if she ever went to West Africa she would want to do a free concert there and do something for the people there.
