Rihanna decided to make history by covering Vogue magazine with a durag. The singer and fashion icon opted for a la garçon style with a suit and tie by Burberry.
Inside the magazine, Rihanna did a lengthy interview where she spoke about her upcoming album and her plans to have four babies.
It has been more than four years since Rihanna dropped her Anti project, and fans have been hounding her for new music.

Talking to British Vogue, Rihanna said that the music is on the way and added: “I can’t say when I’m going to drop. Oh no, that is happening. I feel like I have no boundaries. I’ve done everything—I’ve done all the hits, I’ve tried every genre—now I’m just, I’m wide open. I can make anything that I want.”
She added: “I don’t want my albums to feel like themes. There are no rules. There’s no format. There’s just good music, and if I feel it, I’m putting it out.”
Rihanna stated that with or without a man in her life by 42, she would have about four children.
The mogul confessed: “I feel like society makes me want to feel like, ‘Oh, you got it wrong…’ They diminish you as a mother if there’s not a dad in your kids’ lives. But the only thing that matters is happiness, that’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That’s the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love.”

I can make anything that I want.” Poised to release a long anticipated new album, and with the continued success of “the Fenty effect”, #Rihanna’s work ethic is akin to a force of nature. In the new issue, the businesswoman tells @AfuaHirsch about managing her work-life balance and how she’s been “aggressively working on music”.
