Rihanna Covers FADER
I don’t think Rihanna is open to speaking about ‘R8.’ Maybe she is, but she doesn’t have the answer to the one question in mind, which is when we’ll expect ‘R8?’ If Rihanna does announce the release date, I doubt it’ll be in ‘Fader,’ so the magazine may have asked, though I don’t think she has a release date. I do hope ‘Fader’ asked if Rihanna is starting fresh or if she’s continuing with what she’s recorded and released. It may not be the question many are wondering, though I’ve heard speculation about it. I also would like to know how many songs she’s recorded, or if they’re any collaborations? Many magazines ask the same question of when she’ll release ‘R8,’ but why not ask more questions about ‘R8’ other than the release date? I wouldn’t expect Rihanna to announce the release date in a magazine anyway.
The photoshoot looks very simplistic. I could imagine Rihanna walking inside dressed as she is seen on the cover, which is in slippers and a pink silk dress. I do think this was intentional for Rihanna to be dressed as she is seen on the cover. It’s a boring photoshoot compared to her previous photoshoots. It isn’t really edgy or creative. Like I said though, I do think that was the intention. I still think Rihanna looks pretty, but I wouldn’t consider this a favorite photoshoot of mine from her. I like to see her experiment. The photoshoot is very casual.
