In May’s issue of the UK’s Women’s Fitness Magazine RIHANNA talks “Body Issues” and how she deals with them.
A few excerpts:
On finding unconventional ways of dealing with her body issues: “My way probably won’t work for most people… but the more I got naked the more comfortable I felt. I just had to face my fear. You always find something wrong, you always find something you’re uncomfortable with, and one thing turns into another and you get embarrassed and self-conscious about it – you feel like everybody can see what you see.”
On dealing with criticism: “I stand up for what I believe in and a lot of the time that can be against people’s opinion, but that’s the hard thing to do, it really is sometimes. Especially if the majority doesn’t agree.”
On crediting her mom for the rock-solid core of self-belief: “My mom is the toughest person I know. I’m finding myself becoming a lot more like her. Every time I come to a crossroads, I always find myself going back to my mom’s methods.”
On her guilty food pleasures: “My favorite food right now is microwave butter popcorn. And when I’m in London I’m close to authentic Jamaican food, so I tend to eat that every day.”
Her way definitely wouldn’t work for me.. I prefer to put on a nice bra and a pair of boy cut undies and then stand in the mirror.. I love that sight.
