Rihanna Covers Interview Magazine / Spills On New Album & Explains Delay

Published: Monday 10th Jun 2019 by Sam

Check out Rihanna!

Ever the provocateur, RiRi covers the summer 2019 issue of Interview Magazine in a striking mask.

Make no mistake, though. There’s no hiding from Ms. Fenty these days.

She’s making a splash in many an arena, from beauty to music to fashion – most recently launching her Fenty fashion house under the luxury umbrella of LVMH.

Still, it goes without saying that new music is what fans are thirsting for most. And in her sit-down chat with actress  Sarah Paulson, the Bajan belle opens up about where she is in the process of piecing together the follow-up to 2016’s ‘ANTI.’

Peep pics and quotes below…

On Being A Workaholic Trying To Juggle Many Ventures:

 I don’t leave things hanging. I will work all day in a meeting, leave that meeting at 1 or 2am, and then come home with a tiny group of staff and work until 5, 7am.

I don’t have a sleep pattern. I have sleep pockets. I fit it in when I can. That’s why I take those personal days so seriously. Because it’s like, “You had all of me. I gave you the answers.”

On How This Has Affected New Music:

It’s the reason why an album isn’t being spat out like it used to. I used to be in the studio, only the studio, for three months straight, and an album would come out. Now, it’s like a carousel. I do fashion one day, lingerie the next, beauty the next, then music the next. It’s like having a bunch of kids and you need to take care of them all.

On When New Music Is Coming:

It really does suck that it can’t just come out, because I’m working on a really fun one right now. I’m really happy with a lot of the material we have so far, but I am not going to put it out until it’s complete. It makes no sense to rush it, but I want it out. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m like, “Even if I don’t have the time to shoot videos, I’m going to put an album out.

I wish I knew [exactly when it’s coming]. I have blocked off a solid period of time for the studio next month.

Say what folk will, there’s no denying a “Rihanna” campaign certainly makes for interesting times. So, we’re all sorts of ready.

    I remember the days TGJ used to hate on her so bad and thought Rita Ora would replace her. Is that still the case or did y’all give up? ???

    • Oli June 10, 2019

      Rita Okra is just hotel lobby level kind of a singet but have a dream of a dragon ???

    • UglyTruth June 10, 2019

      Rihanna- the McD of the Caribbean powered by marketing and hype! ?

      • Datredd23 June 10, 2019

        Rihanna has consistently delivered for over 10 years you sound mad hateful of this woman’s success she truly started from rags now look at her if it was that easy everyone else would have done it too! Gtfoh

      • Jot This June 10, 2019

        Consistently selling image and radio friendly songs. ??

    • Jot This June 10, 2019

      Rihanna, Katy, Taylor… they are all about selling image!

      • BeyHive June 10, 2019

        and Miley also Cardi.

      • Datredd23 June 10, 2019

        She’s done every scope of music hater bye!
        From her Caribbean roots to European pop to rap to ballads she’s done it all and taken many risks and has yet to fall or decline 14 years into her career!

    • UnapologeticNavy June 10, 2019

      I remember Beyoncé’s stans being their biggest supporters. All the haters are taking an major L. Rihanna always has the last laugh

    • #TheTruth June 10, 2019

      Work ethic ? LOL. Go check what Sia had to say in Rolling Stone magazine.

      • Oli June 10, 2019

        Since when open your legs to the people in the industry can be constitute as “ethic”?

  2. Huh? June 10, 2019

    Another Madonna. Instead of talents, dressing funny just to make people talk. Embarrassing!

    • Okra Rita June 10, 2019


  3. Lil Jay June 10, 2019

    When you don’t have raw talent, you need to release an album every year!

    • High Price June 10, 2019

      Well that theory is false more than ever now. She released #Anti back in 2016 (mind you, it took her 2 years to make because she began talking about #Anti in 2014) and it is now 2019. So that now accusation is considered false and debunked.. ?

  4. LUCKI June 10, 2019

    Let’s be real here. Rihanna became famous off of music, but it’s no longer her top priority. Her other ventures are bringing in the real coins, and she has now entered mogul territory. She gave us eight albums in twelve years. Seven of them back to back. We can wait for another album. At this point, she’s just doing music for fun.

    • Josef June 10, 2019

      Fun? Dark, mediocre and no depth more like it ???

    • High Price June 10, 2019

      All what you are saying is true but what other girls are really out here doing what she has done in music? If Rihanna was to drop a hit song today and an album next week, nobody else would really matter. Her music is infectious. That’s not being a stan at all, that’s just being real. These newbies haven’t even began to FIT into her shoes, let alone fill it.

  5. YUP June 10, 2019

    Without makeup, she’s ugly as hell. She has a wide, flat nose, and a huge, protruding forehead. Rihanna is a talentless, overrated w h o r e.

    • Nicky June 10, 2019

      No that’s what people say about your mom. Let’s see what you look like

      • Pmsl June 10, 2019

        Lame! ??

    • Datredd23 June 10, 2019

      She could have gotten work done like these other girls but she hasn’t she’s a natural beauty stawwp it

  6. I hate blaccck n whyte June 10, 2019

    Rhianna we not gonna wait for new music anylonger if she drop she drop f*** it. …she a tease f*** it

  7. Clarkson June 10, 2019

    She is more interesting than beyonce for sure. And her music is far better than beyonce’s that’s why she has 14 number 1’s and beyonce has only 5 number 1’s.

    People are clamouring for new Rihanna music so bad unlike beyonce. Before I let go hasn’t entered the top 40 even after she started a silly dance challenge that never took off. Shameful just shameful, and she calls herself the queen. Queen of what exactly?

    • Haterz Gon‘ Hate June 10, 2019

      It’s funny how the last time Beyonce had a number one single she was selling out Arena‘s and all these years later when you’re still clinging to chart positions like your daddy‘s fingerprints on the glass on state penitentiary visitation day she’s now selling out STADIUMS, more successful, critically acclaimed and richer than before and you’re still here bitter that your life didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to so you hate on people more successful than you.

      Funny. Very funny.

    • Mike June 10, 2019

      It is all about marketing even with 40 #1 hits it means nothing these days. Her music is for brain dead millennials or cumdump bottom like John Vidal or Caleb..

      • Tyty June 10, 2019


      • Caleb June 10, 2019

        I don’t listen to her like that but if you say so…

    • I hate blaccck n whyte June 10, 2019

      Queen of what???

      She cannot sing like Whitney the voice Houston

      • Tyty June 10, 2019

        Hey @ tyty why have you stolen my name? This blog is full of losers I swear.

  8. Truth June 10, 2019

    This is another singer I dont mind if she takes 5 years break or leave music industry. She is not avant garde or edgy. Just boring like McD!

  9. Datredd23 June 10, 2019

    She is winning so hard right now! Most successful female musician of all time yasss Rihanna she was right when she told us in 2009 that Rihanna reign won’t let up!

    • BeyHive June 10, 2019

      Success of becoming a studio singer.
      Live? ??

      • Datredd23 June 10, 2019

        Many live performances she has delivered maybe you haven’t seen her Performance of Four Five Seconds at the Grammies or her Love on the Brain performance at the billboard awards??? She totally killed her cover of Madonnas Vogue and showed stage presence you guys are very hateful lol

  10. Ruth June 10, 2019

    Her impact is so minimal and too commercialized. No thanks!

    • Datredd23 June 10, 2019

      You that’s a lie lmao

  11. Josef June 10, 2019

    Agree… the McD’s of the tropical island. ?

  12. BeyHive June 10, 2019

    She will be forever remembered as a stupid insecure immigrant who got beat up severely by her ex lover. Thats her main legacy. ?

    • Mmmmmm June 10, 2019


  13. Mmmmmm June 10, 2019

    A studio singer… like Madonna and Taylor!

  14. High Price June 10, 2019

    Take your time Riri! You’re working, working! I know it’s gonna be epic! #Anti is STILL in rotation for me. #TimeLessMusic

    • Datredd23 June 10, 2019

      Anti is still charting on the billboard hot 200 ! They say she’s done as a musician and yet she has the 6th longest charting female album of the decade! Soon to be 5th and fourth !Lmao bye haters !

  15. Tyty June 10, 2019

    The cover is s*** but rest of the photos are giving us the old school s*** Rihanna tease. Rihanna really doesn’t give a f*** about music anymore she makes more money and can actually be authentically creative with makeup, fashion. Etc… I mean I doubt she will even tour considering how busy she is. Her personal life aligns better with her mogul status now she is not giving that up to gyrate on a mic. Sorry navy ??‍♀️

  16. ??? June 10, 2019

    Lmao, hilarious, these comments are full of bitter & pressed roaches mad cuz queen RiRi can buy & sell that h0 and still have $200 mil left in her pocket lmfaoooooo

    • Datredd23 June 10, 2019

      Rihanna is worth more then 600 million wayyy more that was the minimum figure she actually owns 50 percent of Fenty Beauty which is already valued over 3 billion ! Not to mention her clothing line and Savage Fenty lingerie line that just received a 100 million dollar investment from NFP! Sis is really balling !

    • Tyty June 10, 2019

      Nothing I said had anything to do with Beyonce and yet here you are mentioning her again I’m sick of you repeating the same s*** over and over. You need to take your meds and stay of the internet. Loser!!!

  17. Karter June 10, 2019

    Those pics are just ???!!! Ok Rihanna!

  18. Keith June 10, 2019

    She and Ciara could really do the damn supermodel thing if they wanted to…

    • Are you Kidding Me? June 10, 2019

      It. Would. Be. Legendary. Tyra versus Naomi legendary. I’d pay Sallie Mae to sit in that front row.

  19. Maxx June 11, 2019

    I am sooooo happy for RiRi! It seemed like she was in other artist shadow, but she carved her own lane & is riding the F*** out of it! I love it. I bet her new music will be fire!
