With an award-winning makeup brand, a fashion line with Puma, and a lingerie collection in the pipeline, it’s no secret that Rihanna has taken a teensy break from music to concentrate on other business ventures. But for the love of God, you don’t have to keep reminding her. The 30-year-old made that loud and clear recently when she shut down two impatient fans who slipped into her comments demanding that she make more music.
On Thursday, the “Diamonds” singer took to her Instagram to post another teaser from her upcoming lingerie collection with Savage. The teaser, which featured a loading bar over Rih’s face, comes two weeks before Savage x Fenty’s official drop date on May 11. But not everyone is excited about Rihanna-branded lingerie.
After the teaser went live, Rihanna, whose last album came out in 2016, was badgered by swarms of fans for taking the time out to design a lingerie collection, but not make more music. Though hundreds of fans commented on her Instagram, Rihanna only replied to two, assuring them that her career as a singer isn’t going anywhere.
When one fan asked Rih if she forgot about her music career, the singer seemed genuinely hurt, letting the fan know that the Navy Army would never forgive her if she quit as a singer. “HOW! Y’all would never let me Lolol,” she responded. In response to a fan who demanded that she make music instead of Fenty lingerie, Rihanna assured her that new songs are coming. “she coming sis!” Rihanna wrote back.
You happy? Rihanna confirmed it. She’s making new music. Now, can we let the woman live and make her coins in peace? As much as we love her music, she has other passions too. We’ll just enjoy her lingerie and makeup until the next round of bops come.
