“She’s the love of my life” Is a phrase that this powerful woman has heard from some of the most desirable men in the world. However, when thinking about this iconic woman, who wouldn’t be in love with her? This is a question that thousands of Twitter users broadcasted on their platform when the latest update was disclosed about Rihanna’s newest love affair.
When the news first dropped about Rihanna and A$AP Rocky confirming their relationship publicly, fans were elated that two of the most respected figures in fashion came together. This power couple dynamic would for sure remain as one of the best in celebrity history. Although their relationship did stem and blossom from years of friendship, it was only a matter of time before A$AP would be entirely consumed by the beautiful aura that surrounds Rihanna.
As soon as A$AP Rocky expressed publicly that Rihanna is “the love of my life,” social media users immediately reposted images of the power couple and the quote of his words that all women would die to hear from their significant other. I saw numerous tweets that went viral quoting his statement with responses such as “Of course you do,” “She’s the love of all of our lives,” and popularly “Who isn’t in love with Rihanna?”. Which is definitely a statement that no one can deny. Even myself, I quoted under a media page that reposted the story with the simple response of “Duh”.
With iconic A-list celebrity names such as Drake and Chris Brown declaring their love for this alluring superstar, it’s definitely not a surprise that another man has simply been unable to resist the beauty of this woman. However, one thing about Rihanna that I admire throughout her experiences with these men declaring their love for her, she doesn’t make that the sense of her self-worth. The energy she portrays of self-love and always making sure you want more definitely shows throughout her accomplishments and personal affairs.
I love when Black women are loved out loud because we all deserve to be. I hope that young women who look up to Rihanna not only admire her for her strength, but also the standards that she upholds within any personal relationships within her circle. Since her previous relationships, she’s grown to become more private and personal when it comes to her affairs and that’s another aspect that can be loved about her. I can’t wait to see how this power couple’s love story unfolds.
