While on the red carpet, RiRi stopped to speak with ESSENCE magazine about what it means to be a black woman.
She said, “I’m a black woman. I come from a black woman who came from a black woman, who came from a black woman and I’m going to give birth to a black woman.”
She added, “My mother is an incredible example of how to fight through obstacles in life. I’m sure her mom taught her that and that’s how I’m going to be. We are impeccable, we’re special and the world is going to have to deal with that.”

She has been dating boyfriend Hassan Jameel for a couple of years
Rihanna was first spotted with her boyfriend Hassan Jameel in 2017 and the two have been going strong ever since.
Hassan is a Saudi Arabian business man and the deputy president and vice chairman of his family’s charitable company that organizes programs that focus on “the social, cultural, educational, and economic development of individuals and communities in the Middle East region and beyond,” according to its official website.
Jameel’s family also owns Abdul Latif Jameel, a distribution company for Toyota Motors in Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries. It looks like should they get pregnant, the billionaire couple could certainly afford to have as many kids as they want.
Rihanna wants kids “more than anything in life”
In a recent cover story for Interview Magazine, the award-winning artist spoke to her Ocean’s 8 costar Sarah Paulson about her upcoming album, becoming a mother one day, and more.
When Paulson asked, “Do you want to be a mother?”
She replied: “More than anything in life.”
