Rihanna is embracing the many assets of motherhood. The star recently spoke about her newfound appreciation for her booty on the red carpet for her fourth Savage X Fenty runway show, which was designed with her postpartum body in mind, she told InStyle. “I knew a snapback was on the way so I had to make sure the leggings were giving what they’re supposed to give,” she said.
When asked by interviewer Kirbie Johnson about her favorite body part to flaunt, and if it’s changed over the years, Rihanna said, “Oh yeah, girl, it changed. I guarantee you it changed. I had a baby! Let’s be real. Now it’s my booty — because I got one.” Funny enough, Johnson had asked Rihanna the same question in a POPSUGAR interview 10 years ago. Even then, her answer was the same. Rihanna said in 2012, “I would love to have a butt to show off. When I had a butt, that was it, so now I got to work the legs.”
Rihanna has often spoken about her body with her characteristic candor. In a 2018 interview with British Vogue, the entrepreneur and singer spoke about being “thicc” and wanting to start working out again without losing her curves. “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,” she said at the time. “I’ll lose some but not all.”
