RIHANNA IS ON THE COVER OF BRITISH VOGUE !!!!
And it’s not just any British Vogue cover. It’s the September issue front cover, which is a damn big deal. This actually marks Rihanna’s second Vogue cover of 2018, after she fronted the US edition back in June and the first black to grace the cover in the magazine’s history.
She is known for showing off her curves on red carpets everywhere, as an advocate for body confidence.
And Rihanna has now admitted that she never wants to lose her famously ‘thicc’ figure, during her cover interview with British Vogue.
Posing in an array of quirky ensembles for the magazine, the singer, 30, discussed what its like being ‘the woman that everyone fancies’, and revealed she is proud to be a woman in the industry with ‘a butt and thighs’.

The eye-catching shoot saw Rihanna pose in a number of avant-garde looks, including a ruched satin cape and asymmetric ruffled mini dress.
However, the Umbrella hitmaker then teamed the unique garments with sexy thigh-high boots and a selection of stunning flower crowns, to maintain her usual feminine feel.
Known for her striking sense of style, the actress also added a statement make-up look – involving pastel eye shadow and barely-there brows – as she struck a number of fierce poses for the camera.
Fierce: When asked what its like to be ‘the woman everyone fancies’, she said: ‘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’
While she covered up her famous figure in the outfits, Rihanna told the magazine she feels confident with her frame, and hopes that she remains strong rather than skinny when she starts her new exercise regime.
When asked what its like to be such a pin-up, she said: ‘Ok, you’re asking the wrong person. 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.
“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.”

Rihanna often turns heads with her killer figure, both in her music videos as well as recent film and red carpet appearances.
However, having been in the limelight since 2005, the Ocean’s Eight star said her attitude to life in the public eye has completely changed over the years, and she is now more wary of who she keeps close.
‘I’m very picky about friends,’ she explained. ‘I don’t like to open myself up to everyone and so when you find people who are great and loyal, you don’t want to let go of that.

‘I’ve been out here on my own since I was a teenager, so these people become like your family.’
While she has carved a career as both as a pop star and actress, Rihanna has been focusing on her makeup line Fenty Beauty in recent weeks.
Also releasing a spin-off lingerie collection, titled Savage x Fenty, the chart-topper revealed she wants to make women feel sexy and confident with her products.
‘Women should be wearing lingerie for their d**n selves,’ she said last month. ‘I can only hope to encourage confidence and strength by showing lingerie in another light.
‘I want people to wear Savage x Fenty and think, “I’m a bad b****.” I want women to own their beauty.’
