Singer, beauty mogul and fashion designer Rihanna has shut down widespread speculation across social media that she could be pregnant.
The internet went a buzz with the speculations after the pop star had a red carpet interview during her Diamond Ball where she spoke to Essence magazine about black women.

Of course, her comments about giving birth after video clips shared of the Ball showed her tummy popping somehow morphed into confirmation that she was already pregnant.
However, possibly suggesting that she wants to shut the rumours down once and for all, Rihanna hopped on Instagram and casually dropped a slow-mo video in nothing but a bikini.
As though that was not enough, she even went on to show herself smoking for good measure.
Social media once again erupted with reactions to the clip as some of her fans suggested the video was an old one.
And for those who tried to suggest the video might be a throwback, Rihanna swiftly shut that idea down too.
The speculations that the singer was pregnant with her first child 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 she did not know.
"A lot of women get very defensive because it's personal. It's our bodies. It's not necessarily everyone's dream to be a mom, but it is mine," she told Vogue magazine.
"I don't think about stuff like that but I look forward to all of the pregnancy rumours after this interview," she added.
Well it may be a longterm goal, motherhood is likely not currently on the horizon for the bad gal.
She 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.
But after a whirlwind week, vacation and freedom from relentless pregnancy speculation would be well-deserved by the mogul
