Rihanna also talked about how she spotted a paparazzi somewhere in the beach during the British Vogue photoshoot.
“It’s the thing you never want to happen,” she is quoted as saying. While Rihanna said she gets that the interest in his son is "sky high," she stressed that it's her and A$AP Rocky who get to decide as parents when and how to let the public know about him, "End of story."
"We’ve been protecting him thus far and you don’t have any consent to be posting photos or selling photos of my child, a minor," Rihanna is quoted as saying. "Get the hell out of here with that.”
Noting that there wasn't even time for rage, Rihanna said she went straight into "protective mode" and discussed with A$AP Rocky how to move forward, especially that the paparazzi, she said, was surely making calls and deals during that moment.
Rihanna said she sent cute, candid snaps of his son to a friendly blogger. She then joined TikTok and posted a video of her son—ensuring she gets the best of the paparazzi.
In the British Vogue interview, Rihanna also talked about wanting to release new music.
“Like, honestly, it’d be ridiculous if it’s not this year. But I just want to have fun. I just want to make music and make videos," she is quoted as saying. “And I need the right background music with the visuals. I can’t just go shoot a video to me talking."
She also expressed growing their family further in the near future.
“Listen, I’m down for whatever. My wish would be I would like to have more kids," Rihanna said, "but whatever God wants for me, I’m here.”
