You may have noticed Rihanna’s svelte new silhouette, but you may be surprised to find out she’s not too stoked on her slimmer shape. Rihanna wants to get her “disappearing butt” back.
Rihanna always touted her butt as her favorite body part, and has always been celebrated for her curves. While she worked hard to drop some poundage and slim down, she is now working hard to restore her butt to its natural glory.
The singer’s plan is to “firm the butt,” and told People.com “I’m going to have to start hiking or at least going on the elliptical or walking on an incremental treadmill or horseback riding. Something that firms the butt.”
Unfortunately, her weight loss came from some harsh criticism from someone very close to her. Rihanna’s recent weight loss came after her father, Ronald Fenty, told her she was getting “too fat”.
“I actually thought she was a little fat the last time I saw her,” he recently said. “But when I saw her at this year’s Grammys, I thought she was back to her normal size. I used to joke with her, ‘Robyn, [Rihanna’s first name], you’re getting too fat.’ But I think she’s fine. I think she looked excellent, as everyone saw, at the Grammys. She’s dieting, she’s working out.”
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.”
