I know many fans are upset about not having ANY new music from Rihanna since 2016, but I am one of the few that’s not so upset about it. Rih Rih has been in her BAG. I love how she has taken her musical popularity and has turned it into many sources of income. She has been a heavy weight in the fashion and beauty industry lately and I am HERE for it. Her brand Fenty has served so many purposes for women of color and I don’t see her stopping anytime soon.
Rihanna has been off the scene quite a bit, but it was very refreshing to see her on the cover of I.D. Magazine. With I.D. magazine’s 40th anniversary on the horizon, she was the perfect candidate to grace this cover. This girl boss also co-curated this issue, so it was necessary to name it the Rihannazine. Her big hair and fierce smize had me completely stuck! As I was scanning my digital copy to see who was responsible for styling and it was HER. Rihanna wore all of her own clothes from her Fenty Luxury line for the entire issue. Her styling was a combination of grungy and edgy which was perfect for her intense stature.
