Rihanna: “I Literally Dream About Buying My Own Groceries”


The singer says that nothing in life is perfect so she prefers to keep everything feeling real and says she didn’t sign up to be a role model. Rihanna says she is aware she is flawed and thinks it doesn’t make sense that she’s expected to be flawless:

“Dude! Oh my God – this is scary and sad all at the same time. I literally dream about buying my own groceries. Swear to God. Because it is something that is real and normal. Something that can keep you a little bit uncomfortable. A hundred percent. Because life is not perfect, and the minute you feel it’s perfect, it’s not real. Artists sign a deal to make music; we didn’t sign to be perfect, or to be role models. We’re all flawed human beings who are learning and growing and evolving and going through the same bullsh*t as everybody else. The fact that people expect the day we sign we’re supposed to be perfect does not make any fucking sense to me. Even tragedy, every trial in your life, is a test. It’s like a class – you take an exam, and if you pass, you move on to the next. You still have to take another test and prove yourself again.”

On going almost naked to the CFDAs, Rihanna says she loved the idea of her sheer look appearing as though floating over her skin:

“I wanted to wear something that looked like it was floating on me. But after that, I thought, O.K., we can’t do this again for a while. No nipples, no sexy sh*t, or it’s going to be like a gimmick. That night [at the C.F.D.A. awards] was like a last hurrah; I decided to take a little break from that and wear clothes.”

She also thinks controversial figure Rachel Dolezal is “a hero” because she made people ask questions:

“I think she was a bit of a hero, because she kind of flipped on society a little bit. Is it such a horrible thing that she pretended to be black? Black is a great thing, and I think she legit changed people’s perspective a bit and woke people up.”
