Rihanna is a mega star. One that shines so bright, it’s hard to imagine her trudging through the inevitable mundanity of motherhood. Rihanna and motherhood includes filling diaper bags, singing the Itsy Bitsy Spider and dressing for comfort. But even through those rituals of parenting, Rihanna somehow manages to do it all with her signature funky flair.

In the singer’s latest interview with Interview Magazine, she sits down with Mel Ottenberg, her former stylist and the magazine’s current editor-in-chief, to talk about her motherhood journey and how she’s making her own.

Post Baby Bod and Lazy Dressing

In the interview Rihanna recounted how Ottenberg always found the best silhouettes to flatter her body. She then explained how her body has changed since having two children.

“Now it’s like, ‘Okay, I had two babies. You really have to push this up, snatch this in, or do an illusion of a little bit of skin here,'” Rihanna said during the interview.

She specifically pointed out the changes she noticed during her third trimester of pregnancy.

“You get that when you’re pregnant. Third-trimester cellulite is no joke,” Rihanna said. “You just see ripples coming from places you never knew, and it’s all in your thighs, because your thighs are carrying the weight of your baby and uterus. 

The conversation eventually turned to plastic surgery and Rihanna openly remarked that if she had to pick one body part to alter it would be her breasts.

“I want my titties pinned back to my shoulders, right where they used to be,” she said. “I just want a lift.”

Ottenberg and the singer also joked about the popular BBL procedure, which sees fat transferred from other parts of the body to the bottom. Rihanna told Ottenberg she will get one only if he does.

“We could do a twofer. Who’s going to take care of us? We can’t take care of each other,” the singer joked.

The style maven shared how her approach to fashion has transformed since her body and lifestyle with two children has change.

“It’s more like I spend my time getting the kids dressed to death, and then I’m like, ‘What’s the most comfortable outfit to wear around them? What’s not going to feel uncomfortable on their face or on their body or make me feel like I can’t hold them properly?’ Moms are lazy dressers in real life,” Rihanna recalled.

The Diaper Bag Rundown

Despite it all, Rihanna’s motherhood journey involves many things. She takes getting her kids fresh very seriously and organization is key for the mom.

“I have racks, I have bags. They’re all sized and organized, and then whatever gets too small for RZA, I put into bins so that Riot can have them next,” the singer explained. “Riot is actually in all of RZA’s 1-year-old clothes already. He’s only six months. Everybody thinks Rocky dresses them because I dress them in Rocky outfits.”

As for her diaper bag, in true Rihanna fashion, the bag of choice is a stylish designer piece. “Okay, let’s not classify this as a diaper bag. This was a diaper bag. This is a YSL mini duffle. But I kept some things from the kids in here,” Rihanna told Ottenberg.

She ran down a laundry list of items that she keeps with her on the go:

  • Riot’s rag
  • RZA’s pacifier
  • Pair of socks
  • Pacifier
  • Pair of sunglasses
  • Meds
  • Fenty perfume
  • Vics cough drops
  • Pack of cards
  • Rolling apparatus

Motherhood Journey and More Kids

Much of Ottenberg and Rihanna’s conversation centered on her experience as a mom and how that now dominates her life in many ways. The mogul’s favorite city is Los Angeles because that’s where her gynecologist is located.

“I wouldn’t trade her for the world. That’s why I had my babies in L.A. Besides that, great doctors, great therapists for kids, great teachers,” Rihanna explained.

The singer says she is open to having more children. However, there is no magic number for her. In Rihanna’s motherhood journey, she leaves exactly how many more she’ll have up to God.

“I don’t know what god wants, but I would go for more than two. I would try for my girl. But of course if it’s another boy, it’s another boy,” Rihanna told Ottenberg.

She added that she never could have imagined her life as it is today except for being mother. That is one role she always knew she wanted to have.

“I didn’t know how it would come, but it is the best part of my journey so far,” Rihanna said.
