Rihanna: Kids Would be a Bundle of Karma

Rihanna: Kids Would be a Bundle of Karma

Rihanna strikes a pose for a spread in Interview‘s December 2010 issue.

Here’s what the 22-year-old cover girl had to share with Kanye West, who interviewed her for the mag:

On her take on fashion: “I’m over the whole structured clothing, overly shoulder-padded shit. I like stuff that’s easy without trying too hard. I don’t like stuff that’s too contrived. I’m not into trends or trendy style anymore. [A year from now] I probably see a lot of menswear, or something extremely, extremely feminine. But I like to play with both.”

On her vulnerable side: “I think a lot of peo­ple have a misperception of me. They only see the tough, defen­sive, aggressive side. But every woman is vulnerable. They have vulnerability. So of course I’m going to have that side. It’s not a major part of who I am, but it’s definitely there. I just don’t like people to see me cry.”

On having children: “I don’t know actually. That depends on a lot of other sh-t. [laughs] I have a lot of other stuff to accomplish before I get to kids. Whenever the time is right, I’ll just know. I don’t really plan on the age. It could be a year from now. It could be 10 years from now. Whenever is right. If I had a girl, she’d probably be really rebellious. She would be like a bundle of karma.”

    RIHANNA – the non-singing singer.

  • yassss

    how dare she put down her style from last year! that’s the best she ever looked! she was at her peak fashion wise. she was a borderline fashion icon and she got everyone following her sick style! she looks like $hit now. If anything, her current look is contrived, she’s trying to convince us (and herself) that she’s happy and colorful. puh-leez b!tch. your record company told u that u have to be “happy” for this record release. ur just a puppet.

  • angela

    Another keyboard warrior saying mean s*** to people they dont know LOL
    If she dresses in a different way why does it matter to you?? Keep breaking them records; ie 4 number 1s in 1 year and 6 top 10s

  • MlleF

    Poor Kids…lol

  • Afysel

    I definitely enjoy some of her songs,but we all know she isnt a singer,zero talent,i think this is her worst album full of medicore songs,ten years 4rm now,nobody wud listen to them but they are fun.its just that right now,the music industry is full of crappy singers eg katy perry,taylor swift,selena gomez etc.what a shame!!!

  • F

    @angela: so tell me why she sells less album than the others who don’t have 4#1 in a year??? that’s weir!

  • ll

    she’s so smart

  • uh oh

    She needs to stop with the wigs.

  • mickey

    ugly chick

  • cute

    Cute girl. Bad hair.

  • sixx

    They went nuts on the photoshop.

  • tal


  • finn

    Rihanna should model.
    She’s not a very good singer.

  • karma

    Forget the kids. Girl needs to get an education.

  • karma

    They’ll rob her blind until she does. Would hate to see her end up like Toni Braxton.

  • ha!

    She has maybe three strands of hair left without the weaves and wigs.

  • Lazarus

    And what do you know about her album sales? Who told you she sells less? Go and find out the facts. Idiot.

  • t

    Her skin is pretty but she looks like a tranny.

  • passion

    @karma: Agree, she usually sounds silly in her video interviews. She does better in print but I think they clean it up.

  • anon

    You can see and hear the negative influences in her life.

  • Lazarus

    Cheers to you oh wonderful psychic who can tell she’s lying! You look a damn FOOL. If you knew the first thing about her you’d realise she doesn’t give a flying G6 about convincing anyone about anything. You’re an idiot.

  • jj fans

    Rihanna’s old hair was better than the ugly new wig. She looks like a Ninja clown now.

  • yassss

    @Lazarus: oh great another parasitic, oblivious stan. your girl is a puppet, deal.

  • Ko

    @angela: In this day and age, number one singles/songs don’t mean a darn thing anymore. Frickin’ Waldo could come out with a single and it would be a smash hit. And the music industry wonders why its in such a bad state. It’s all about marketing and money, and style and image, talent, substance and versatility go on the back burner. Rihanna’s a prime example of how the music industry eats them up and spits them out. I doubt Rihann will be relevant in 2050. Matter fact, I don’t think ANY of these singers will be relevant by then. But you can bet people will still talk about Michael Jackson and his music.

  • Deedz

    She is so annoying.

  • yo sista

    this b!tch is the best example of talentless fake beauty puppet.

    fake hair, check
    2 tons of make up, check
    fake nails, check
    fake tan, check


  • laverdadduele

    If she had a girl, she would probably be a s.l.u.t. just like mom.

  • Plazik
  • jen

    I like her but man oh man does she try hard to be edgy. Her style is horrible and its a shame because she is a very pretty girl.

  • Sandy

    I dnt get y u hatin so much on Riri,u sim 2 no so much abt her music bt u sae she cnt sing,y listen,nobody is forcin u 2,i think she is cn sing n sings abt relevant staff,as 4 clothes,shes no puppet,she is trend setter,no body cn do it beda dan she cn,stop hatin,RIRI IS HERE 2 STAY BEDA GET USED 2 IT HATER!

  • Adriana

    LOL! Some of your comments are pretty stupid…Like saying she’s not a singer…Duh, she is a pop star….so that means she sings. Also, Rihanna is a model AND a pop star…Since when do you have to only do ONE thing…This isn’t the 50′s…Women can be sexy and successful doing whatever they want. I like her songs and her videos, so SUCK IT…Obviously she made you look and think twice about her that’s why you feel compelled to comment. LOL. You are all hypocrites.

  • Adriana

    @jen: Well Jen…Unlike the boring bitch you are, she is not interested in resting on pretty…She’s not Vanessa Williams.

  • Lalalove

    How is it that you post Rihanna’s use of the word, “sh*t”? Yet if we in the comment section even attempt to post it, we get censored. Kids are way more likely to read her interview than our comment. You and your effery. I swear if you didn’t supply hq images I wouldn’t even come around here. smh

  • Lalalove

    You mean her “publicist is so smart”? Celebs never come up with more than half the things you think they say on their own.
    Lovely photo shoot, by the way.

  • DownSyndromeMattKemp


  • What

    Tough, defen­sive, aggressive side?? Uh nooo!!

  • Katya

    @Ko: You forget that you are talking about a pop star…She’s only 22 and has accomplished more in 5 years than most do in twenty. You have a point that these days, the record company just churns em out, hoping to get a hit, but Rihanna isn’t just another in a long line. I am not a huge fan of hers, but even I can see that she has something special that is new and different from the Britney’s and Beyonce’s…I think she may be the biggest break out pop superstar since Britney Spears actually. She has an incredible and iconic style that is unique. Her beauty and her voice is unique…may not be everyone’s cup o tea, but that can be said for many signature artists. Rihanna is just beginning to blossum and it all started with Good Girl Gone Bad…since then she has established herself as her own brand…No more Beyonce comparisons. She’s everything Beyonce wishes she was: young, fashion icon, cool and wild…Beyonce needs an alter ego to be any of those things. Lady Gaga can never be Rihanna either.

  • Katya

    @F: She sells less albums because she is primarily a singles artist…Just like Madonna, her singles and videos generate big sales as downloads and high views on youtube…It’s just the age we live in. People like Susan Boyle or Britney Spears have fan bases that buy albums, plus they are available in Walmart…Rihanna’s last two albums were both Parental Advisory albums. Good Girl Gone Bad is still her best seller at over two million in the US and another 7 million outside the US…That’s good in this day and age. BTW, LOUD has only had two singles and so far they both hit #1 in the US. “Only Girl” is #1 world wide. Give her some time…I’m sure that after a few more singles, LOUD will have outsold Rated R and could even outsell Good Girl Gone Bad over time. #3 debut is actually a career high for Rihanna…She’ll get a 500,000+ first week eventually.

    Love her! She looks great in these shots.

    Rihanna needs to get an education??? I would have you know that Barbadians are very educated people, and probably if she wasn’t singing thats exactly what she would be doing, studying!! You really have some nerve!!
