Here are some photos of Rihanna performing in the UK over the past week. It feels like she’s been there for months, so I’m not sure what’s up with that. Maybe she’s just promoting her album? Could be. She recently sat down for an interview with a British radio station, and she ended up talking about how and when she would like to become a mom. Rihanna basically said that at this point in her life, she’s thinking adoption. But she said it in a funny way that many non-mothers (like me) can relate to: “I’m really scared of the actual childbirth situation but I do want to be a mum one day. Even if I have to adopt, I want to be a mum.” Note: Rihanna probably said “mom” but since this is wholly British-sourced, they changed it to “mum”. Also: I totally feel Rihanna’s pain/fear of “the childbirth situation”. Amen!
In another interview, Rihanna admitted that her three-year-old poodle Oliver isn’t house-trained yet. That’s just… gross. Rihanna said: “Oh my gosh, he is adorable but he is very bad. He knows how much I love my clothes and if he is upset with me he will go and pee really close to them. The other day he was so cross that he peed right over my favorite pair of shoes.” The Dog Whisperer would say that Rihanna needs to be the pack leader, and Oliver needs to be in a calm-submissive state.
Also, I would make fun of Rihanna’s costumes, but honestly this sh-t looks better than many of her other costumes.
