But I don’t think she needs it anymore.” No doubt, Rihanna has been embracing being a trailblazing boss in beauty and fashion. In fact, last weekend she celebrated the opening of her first brick-and-mortar Savage x Fenty store in Las Vegas, with more to come. By promoting diversity and inclusivity for women of all shades and sizes in beauty and fashion, Rihanna also stood for something that was more important than a three-minute pop song. That has led to what is now known as the “Fenty effect” in the fashion and beauty game, with her competitors stepping up their efforts to represent all kinds of women. “I’m shocked by people saying, ‘Oh my God, what made you think of making makeup for black girls?’ ” Rihanna told British Vogue. “I’m like, ‘What? You thought this was like a marketing strategy? Like I’m a genius?’ It’s shocking most of the time. Then it turns into disappointment that this is groundbreaking right now.

Every weekend they’re touring somewhere, they’re doing an appearance. When you put out an album, it’s a grind. She’s doing the thing we kind of all want to do: She made her money and now she doesn’t have to work every day … She’s living her life — and she is living it in love.” And still only 33, she has plenty of time to return to music — on her own timetable and on her own terms. “It’s not about selling records, it’s about making a statement, and I think that’s what Rihanna — if she comes back to music — will look to do,” said Majewski. “She’s already broken so many records. She’s already had so many hit singles. She doesn’t need more of those. If she is going to come back to music, there’s going to be a reason, a mission. It will be her
