Opening Up! Rihanna Talks New Music, Drake & More With Vogue

  • Rihanna on Drake “We don’t have a friendship now but we’re not enemies either”

The two seemingly got back together after the awards night and, in a live performance of "Work" in a concert in Miami, Rihanna even gave Drake a kiss on the lips onstage. The "Rude Boy" singer, who continues to dominate the chart despite not having a new album in the past year, did not name collaborators but said that the music was influenced by Supa Dups, a record producer from Jamaica.

When detailing what their connection is like now, Rihanna told the magazine, "We don't have a friendship now, but we're not enemies either". When I ask about the current state of their friendship, her attitude is sanguine.

Drake declared his love for Rihanna on stage at the VMAs, and it was the actual cutest thing ever.

It's wrong but this sort of reminds us about how Drake ghosted Bella Hadid. In this new interview Rihanna also talked about what was going on in her mind at the time of the Drake scene at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Interviewed by Nigerian-born Chioma Nnadi, Rihanna is a breath of fresh air in her honest and open interview.




Speaking about Drake's speech where he announced he had been in love with her since he was 22 years old, Rihanna said, "Waiting through that speech was probably the most uncomfortable part".

The 30-year-old rapper posted on Instagram this week a photo of him sitting on a couch and looking pensive while wearing a pair of socks from ex-girlfriend Rihanna's latest Fenty x Stance collection, which was released last week.

The lovely and talented Rihanna is back, and she is opening up more than usual. "I don't like too many compliments; I don't like to be put on blast".

Rih, who also graces the cover of the June 2018 issue of Vogue, supplies some quick tips and commentary as she applies her makeup. While she didn't take any names, the audience is assuming she was talking about billionaire Hassan Jameel.
