While R&B singer Rihanna is known for her slender figure and a cutting edge sense of style, she has made it a point of telling young girls not to fall for the traps of the fashion world and the unrealistic weight expectations that come with it.
“You shouldn’t be pressured into trying to be thin by the fashion industry, because they only want models that are like human mannequins,” says Rihanna. “You have to remember that it’s not practical or possible for an everyday woman to look like that.”
The 22-year-old pop star shows wisdom beyond her years. Maybe it’s in part due to her grow-up-fast learning experience of being involved in a high-profile domestic abuse scandal with former boyfriend, singer Chris Brown.
According to a profile done by the British The Daily Mail, Rihanna refuses to diet, but admits to be stricter when she gets “out of control.”
