Rihanna covers i-D’s music issue (Updated)



Via i-D: In The Music Issue of i-D we turn up the volume on the pop stars, rock stars and DJs rocking our worlds, and meet the fashion designers for whom music inspires everything they do. She last released an album in 2012, but Rihanna’s finally back and on the cover of your favourite magazine. To celebrate her eighth studio album, R8, we meet Robyn Rihanna Fenty, the reigning queen of pop. While details of Ri’s new album still remain under wraps, rumours of collaborations with Mike WiLL Made-It, Ne-Yo, DJ Mustard, Kiesza, Sam Smith and Rae Sremmurd have set anticipation at an all time high. Team this with last month’s stealth pre-release of FourFiveSeconds, an unexpected acoustic jam with Kanye West and Paul McCartney, and it’s fair to say suspense is skyrocketing.

“She really is one of the most creative, talented and inspiring women I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with,” says i-D’s Fashion Director Alastair McKimm, who teamed up with Rihanna and Paolo Roversi for i-D’s cover shoot in Paris. “The energy and enthusiasm she brings is intense. She’s the ultimate icon of our time.”

Stay tuned for more…

UPDATE: The magazine will be on UK newsstands Feb. 5 and worldwide Feb. 9! Shot by Paolo Roversi. Rihanna shared two new images on Instagram!

    Fun Fact,,,
    50,000. THAT IS the approximate number of global Rihanna fans who type online search queries about the music star’s real eye color into their Google browsers every year. But why? The answer is partly to do with her overall popularity as a celebrity, as the world’s biggest stars also tend to have the biggest search numbers on a variety of beauty-related subjects. The other reason for the popularity of Rihanna’s eyes is racial. Many are unsure how a person of African ancestry can possess eyes that are not the more ubiquitous natural brown color. As a result, some assume that music celebrity’s real eye color green is actually fake, and that she wears color contact lenses to turn brown eyes to green. In fact, 1,000 people Google the question, “Does Rihanna wear contacts?” somewhere around the world each month , Amazing

    @NAVY You know I love blogging behind RIH Just like many of her fans, defending her with Facts & Figures and truths , and I find it so amazing how the trolls get so angry because they can give it but they can’t take it. I suppose I am one of RIHANNA “Die Hard Fans” because I have no Intentions of bowing down. Remember that when you are out there surfing the Net , and decides to get into a debate, always look for those who will start going after You with the Personal Attacks. You are doing a good job of getting their Feathers Ruffled really well when they forget about Li Ms Sunshine and start going after You, Wink, Wink…

    Riri sporting the innocent school girl look from Barbados and made it into fashion, now that is the genius in her right there! This won’t look right on anyone else who tries to do it, for sure. The one and only Robyn Rihanna Fenty. Natural beauty at its best!
