Rihanna Focused On Marriage and Family, Fans Will Have To Wait Longer For New Music
Rihanna is checking off career and life milestones in a major way. The Fenty CEO is back in the public eye following her Super Bowl set, and everyone is excited to see what is next. While diehard fans are hoping it is music, insiders are saying Rihanna is going full speed ahead, building her family and happily ever after next.
Rihanna released her last studio album, ANTI, in 2016. In the time since she has been fully focused on her beauty and fashion empires. Rihanna launched FENTY Beauty and Savage x Fenty, becoming a billionaire in the process. Rihanna also found love with long-time friend and collaborator A$AP Rocky. The pair has had undeniable chemistry for years, dating back to their racy Video Music Awards performance of “Cockiness” in 2012. They finally made things official during the pandemic with a series of flirty videos and red-carpet appearances. Love was followed by their first child together, a beautiful baby boy that just got his first magazine spread in British Vogue. Rihanna also shocked fans by debuting her baby bump at her Super Bowl halftime show.
Many expected the show to be the beginning of a new music era for the singer. Rumors of a new album or tour announcement were heavy, even though she was very clear that there was no new music on the way. Her last release was “Lift Me Up” from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack last fall. Fans online were immediately upset with A$AP Rocky for knocking up the Bajan pop star a second time. Memes of Rihanna’s backup dancers, ironically dressed in all white and marching, were used to poke fun at the fertile duo. “ASAP Rocky spermatozoids as soon as they see Rihanna ovulating,” said one person.
Rihanna has made it clear that motherhood is her full focus at the moment, something her father also recently confirmed in an interview with Page Six. Rihanna and A$AP are said to be ready to make things even more official with marriage next, following baby news. “Throwing a wedding and having another baby are Rihanna’s main focus at the moment,” explained a source close to the couple. “Agreeing to do the Super Bowl definitely reinvigorated her love of performing, but it still doesn’t compare to what she has at home. Luckily, A$AP’s on board, too.”
Rihanna reportedly wants 3 or 4 kids in total and has been rumored to be gearing up to go live in Barbados permanently. She purchased a massive home there a few years ago that she has been preparing for her family. Rihanna also has major plans for a Barbados-based wedding surrounded by friends and family. Her source says that the goal is an “over-the-top” ceremony where she gets to be “super-glam” but also “run around barefoot.”
Rihanna plans on wearing white and inviting famous friends like Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Adele. Some people have criticized Riri for getting pregnant before marriage, but the unorthodox star has always done things on her own terms. Even her relationship with A$AP is unique since they dated on and off for so long.
