Don’t stop the mu­sic

Fi­nally, RiRi gives us what we’ve been wait­ing for: a beauty brand

ELLE (Malaysia) - - BEHIND THE COVER -

Hard to be­lieve, but it’s been 12 years since orig­i­nal bad girl Rihanna burst onto our ra­dios and into our lives. She is one of the greats of our time, and not just for her mu­sic, which has al­ways been in­fec­tious and provoca­tive. For her style, her voice and her sheer power. Rihanna is the hu­man em­bod­i­ment of not giv­ing a sin­gle F and that spirit and tenac­ity shine through in ev­ery­thing she does, whether that’s chart-top­ping mu­sic, cooler-than-cool col­lab­o­ra­tions or now, an in­ter­net-break­ing beauty line.

In this month’s ex­clu­sive cover story we get an insight into ex­actly how Rihanna’s mind works, cour­tesy of 20 of her best friends and fans. (In sum­mary: like noth­ing you could ever imag­ine.) She tells us about the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind her mu­sic, and what she wanted from her new colour cos­met­ics line Fenty Beauty. As you might ex­pect, her tastes are eclec­tic and her in­flu­ences broad. Which goes some way to ex­plain­ing why she can en­dorse both Puma sneak­ers and Chopard di­a­monds, and rock ev­ery­thing from Gi­ambat­tista Valli cou­ture, to a camel suit, to a string bikini. Vol­ume, colour and the avant-garde present no prob­lem for RiRi. Through her style, hu­mour and bound­ary-break­ing ca­reer, she’s teach­ing all of us to be fear­less.
