    Rihanna Just Got Real About Her Body And "Being The Woman Every Woman Fancies"

    "You want to have a butt, then you have a gut."

    OK so I'm gonna pretend you haven't been on the internet in the last day and therefore haven't already seen the news. Hold onto your wigs...



    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.

    ANYWAY, aside from looking incredible, Rihanna had a sit down with British Vogue's editor-in-chief, Edward Enninful, and had some interesting things to say about her body.

    When asked about being the woman that every woman fancies, Rihanna modestly shook it off, saying: "Ok, you’re asking the wrong person. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m 'thicc' now."

    She continued, "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."

    Rih also got real about boys, and gave some great advice on dating:

    I think a lot of people meet people and then they’re dating the idea of what the person could become, and that person never shows up and then they’re just mad disappointed. A person can always get better, they can always get worse, but you’ve got to be fine with what you met them as.

    Did everybody hear that in the back? As always, Rihanna knows best.
