Rihanna shuts Pregnancy rumours

There’s been widespread speculation across social media that the singer, beauty mogul and fashion designer might be pregnant. Rihanna sees the ‘omg is she pregnant’ tweets and created a bikini/smoking Instagram video to shut it back down.

It all seemed to stem from a red carpet interview where she spoke to a magazine about black women. At her Diamond Ball last month, Rihanna said: “I’m a black woman. I come from a black woman who came from a black woman and I’m gonna give birth to a black woman.” She continued: “That’s who I am. It’s the core of who I am, in spirit and in DNA.”

Rihanna’s comments about giving birth somehow morphed into confirmation that she was already pregnant. In fact, the whispers reached such a fever pitch that she was asked in interviews on multiple occasions about having children.

When asked why people were so obsessed with that question, Rihanna said: “I don’t know. A lot of women get very defensive because it’s personal. It’s our bodies.” Accidentally adding fuel to the fire, she added: “It’s not necessarily everyone’s dream to be a mom, but it is mine.”

Rihanna also answered a question about designing her own wedding dress which, you guessed it, led to whispers that she might already be engaged to long-term boyfriend Hassan Jameel.
