With all her musical and business ventures, it's not hard to believe that Rihanna probably doesn't have a lot of time on her hands. But in an interview with Interview Magazine, Rihanna spoke to her Ocean's 8 costar Sarah Paulson about everything from new music, being in love, faith, and even motherhood.
It's been a long three years for fans since Rihanna last dropped new music in the form of her 2016 album Anti, which she admitted was mainly due to her entrepreneurial success.
"It’s the reason why an album isn’t being spat out like it used to," she admits. "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."
"Okay, but as a hungry kid, I need a new Rihanna album. How much longer do we have to wait?" Paulson then asks her. "It really does suck that it can’t just come out, because I’m working on a really fun one right now," Rihanna replies. "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.”
Moving on from music, Paulson her love life, and whether or not children are on the horizon. "Are you in love," Paulson asks. "Of course I am," Rihanna promptly responds. Although she opts for silence when asked about marriage, she notes that becoming a mother is something she wants,
...more than anything in life.
