Rihanna Reveals Truth About Her Love Life In New Interview

Written by on June 11, 2019

On criticism from the unrelenting world of the internet: Rihanna has always had thick skin, she said, and developed it back when she was a child. Thus, internet comments don’t get under it, and never really have:

“I have to say, I’ve always had pretty tough skin—even as a little girl, which was completely due to my parents. They never sheltered me in any way. They would tease me, and I would tease them right back. By the time I got to school, I always had this feeling like the kids were stupid. Maybe that was god’s way of preparing me for what my life was going to be like. I don’t feel any way about people’s comments. I remember being a kid and being like, “Wow! I’m in a chat room. I can say whatever I want. They don’t know how old I am. They don’t know who I am, or where I am.” There’s that idea of being a child behind a screen and having that feeling like you can say anything. That child is who I imagine behind a comment every time I see one. They would never say that to my face. They probably wouldn’t even say hello.”

On dating…

While Rihanna didn’t identify him by name (but rather a Google search that she lightheartedly encouraged Paulson to do), Rih’s lovedom with Saudi billionaire Hasaan Jameel has taken rather public turns since they were first spotted together in 2017. But as for whether she’s actually in love, Rih simply replied, “Of course I am.” Her answer wasn’t so certain on whether she’ll get married though, as she’s leaving that up to the man upstairs. “Only God knows that, girl,” she answered Paulson. “We plan and God laughs, right?”

On becoming a mother…

Rihanna would want to be a mom “more than anything in life,” hence why she’s so in love with her adorable baby cousin who stars on her Instagram page occasioinally, 

On faith and becoming closer to God…

The first thing Rih does when she wakes up is pray, she said. When she was only 7-years-old, she began praying and fasting, which she did on her own in hopes for a trip to New York. Though she’s never questioned her faith, Rih did admit that while recording and working up her Anti opus, she felt she may have let God down. “Not my faith, but I have been in a place where I felt like maybe I had disappointed god so much that we weren’t as close,” she revealed.
“Actually, that happened to me while I was making Anti. That was a really hard time, but, thank God, I got through it.”

Rihanna realized that her faith wasn’t lost, but the enemy may have been trying to sabotage it

“The devil just has a way of making you feel like you’re not good enough, and that you’re not worthy of god being close to you. It’s really not the truth, but you wind up feeling like that. My grandmother was the one who started me on this. She gave me a devotion book, a physical one. It was the last thing she gave me before she passed away. It got left on a plane and stolen, so I just said, “You know what? Somebody else is going to gain from that.” And then I bought the same book on my iPhone. The only sad part was that her handwriting was in it, but someone is going to be blessed with it, so it’s fine.”
