Rihanna Already Wants To Release ‘R9’

Rihanna is opening up about her personal life.


Riri’s been up to a lot lately – and by that, we mean she’s been breaking grounds with her uber successful business ventures. But fans know that when it comes to the superstar’s personal life, she likes to keep things on the DL.


In a recent interview with Interview Magazine, however, Riri dishes about A LOT to her Ocean’s 8 co-star, Sarah Paulson – like the deets about R9, starting a family, her sleeping habits, and what the now-infamous “P” on her calendar stands for,


It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard a Rhianna track on the radio, but she’s previously teased that new music is coming. And, apparently, she can’t wait to release it.


“It really does suck that it can’t just come out, because I’m working on a really fun one right now. I’m really happy with a lot of the material we have so far, but I am not going to put it out until it’s complete. It makes no sense to rush it, but I want it out. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m like, ‘Even if I don’t have the time to shoot videos, I’m going to put an album out.’”


It’s not yet done, though, but it’s getting there. And she’s all set to hit up the studios next month to work on it.


“I have blocked off a solid period of time for the studio next month,” she revealed.


Speaking of work, no one can work work work work work work like Riri – she’s now the richest female musician in the world and has an uber successful business empire under her belt. But, she also revealed that her busy sched has something to do why it’s kinda taking some time for new music to come out.


“It’s the reason why an album isn’t being spat out like it used to. I used to be in the studio, only the studio, for three months straight, and an album would come out. Now, it’s like a carousel. I do fashion one day, lingerie the next, beauty the next, then music the next. It’s like having a bunch of kids and you need to take care of them all,” she told Sarah.


But all work and no play is certainly no fun, that’s why Rhi makes sure to carve some “P”s on her calendar.


“It’s only the last couple years that I started to realize that you need to make time for yourself, because your mental health depends on it. If you’re not happy, you’re not going to be happy even doing things that you love doing. It’d feel like a chore. I never want work to feel like a chore. My career is my purpose, and it should never feel like anything other than a happy place. I’ve made little things a big deal, like going for a walk or going to the grocery store. I got into a new relationship, and it matters to me. It was like, “I need to make time for this.” Just like I nurture my businesses, I need to nurture this as well. I’ll shut things down for two days, three days at a time. On my calendar we now have the infamous ‘P,’ which means personal days. This is a new thing.”


In case you’re wondering, with all the stuff she’s got on her plate, does she even get any sleep?


“I don’t have a sleep pattern. I have sleep pockets. I fit it in when I can. That’s why I take those personal days so seriously,” she shared.


As for who makes her feel like she’s the only girl in the world, Rhi totes just confessed that she’s in love with her special someone – she’s been romantically linked with Saudi billionaire Hassan Jameel since June of 2017 and these lovebirds have been giving just about everyone major FOMO with their PDA-filled romantic getaways and OTT date nights.


When Sarah asked, “Are you in love?” Rihanna answered point blanc, “Of course I am.”


As for her plans for starting a family in the future, Rhianna revealed that she’s wants to be a mom “more than anything in life”, and it’s up to the bug guy upstairs on whether she’ll be walking down the aisle.
