A little bit on Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s relationship
Rihanna, the 34-year-old singer, recently opened up about her pregnancy and relationship with rapper A$AP Rocky in the latest interview with Vogue on Tuesday, April 12. In a candid chat with the fashion magazine, RiRi got deep and personal about her private life.
“I certainly took a while to get over how much I know him and how much he knows me, because we also know how much trouble we can land each other in,” she said referring to the 33-year-old rapper. According to her, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky became quite close during the 2020 lockdown and had set off on a cross-country road trip from Los Angeles to New York on a tour bus. “He became my family in that time,” she adds.
She also recalled the days when she grilled barefoot on “this little janky grill [she] bought from Walmart” while the rapper flaunted gas station t-shirts. “I love the simple things but also the grand adventures. There’s no pretentious my-brand-your-brand bullsh*t, it’s just us living. I just feel like I can do any part of life by his side,” she said.
How has the singer been feeling through her third trimester
Rihanna also got quite candid about her pregnancy in the interview. She revealed that it was not either planned or unplanned but that was the least of her concerns. Her greatest worries at the moment are post-partum depression and her child not being into fashion like their diva mom. “They’re going to teach me more than I could ever teach them. And I want them to go for it. I want to see who they are in the world, who they become because I’m just here to keep them on the rails—a passenger as much as the driver,” she said.
In the Vogue May cover story, she also talked about absurd pregnancy cravings and linked it to her hometown in Barbados. Rihanna revealed that she loves eating tangerines with salt now. “It has to be with salt and only with salt, because in Barbados we take our fruits to the ocean and soak them,” she explained. “Trust me, it really is a thing,” she went on to add.
She also revealed that she had been craving chocolates a lot during this time, a universal pregnancy craving. “I usually hate desserts, but all of a sudden you come close to me with a chocolate-covered donut and you’ve got my heart forever,” she said.
We wish Rihanna and A$AP Rocky a healthy and happy pregnancy and a great future ahead!
