- Pop star Riri is not moved while the whole world seems concerned with her weight
- she has been on the receiving end for allegedly adding weight
Pop icon Rihanna is not moved by her body shamers.
Earlier in the year, a fan posted a throwback video of the superstar at a convenience store, arms full of snacks, which started talk on the internet over the singer’s weight.
Sassy Rihanna had this to say:
“Somebody called me too fat?”
The singer added the laughing emoji to the comment, to show how unbothered she was by what was going on.
On a different occasion, Rihanna shared a photo on the internet of her looking resplendent in an intricately bejeweled bikini, a blue wig, and a huge spray of green and pink feathers.
The internet reacted accordingly, penning lengthy descriptions of her outfit and her body and then following them up with speculation around whether or not the image was Photoshopped.
Blogger Chris Spagnuolo, formerly of ‘Barstool Sports’, wrote a piece in which he body shamed the star, making cruel jokes about her weight gain and arguing her “high key thickness” would lead to “a world of ladies shaped like the Hindenburg.”
This was after the blogger posted a picture of Rihanna looking chic yet considerably thicker.
Rihanna responded in her classic witty style, by posting a meme of rapper Gucci Mane, showing his weight loss since 2007.
In the caption of the photo, she wrote:
“If you can’t handle me at my 2007 Gucci Mane, you don’t deserve me at my 2017 Gucci Mane.”
After the launch of Fenty Puma AW17, Rihanna finally spilled the tea on the topic that seems to concern everyone but her: her weight.
Rihanna revealed that she has a fluctuating body type, where one day she can fit into a body-hugging dress and the next day she needs clothes that cleverly hide the bulge like a crop top and a high waist.
She stated that she every morning she dresses according to what works for her on that day, and commented that everyone should take the same approach to fashion because it’s an individual thing.
“I love to play with silhouettes as well, but I think it’s important to make sure that you wear the thing that works for your body the best, and that’s flattering.”
