Rihanna: I Like My Bod Even Though It's "Not Perfect"
In a barely-there dress on the cover of Vogue's April issue, Rihanna looks crazy confident. But the "Umbrella" singer, 23, says that wasn't always the case.
"Over the holidays, and during filming (the action flick Battleship), I realized I actually like my body, even if it's not perfect according to the book," she tells the magazine. "I just feel sexy. For the first time, I don’t want to get rid of the curves. My body is comfortable, and it's not unhealthy, so I'm going to rock with it.”
And it's probably a good thing she's content with her shape, because Rihanna admits she's not a fan of working out.
"I hate going to the gym and doing it the old-fashioned way," she said. "I hate anything that's too straightforward, too routine, too familiar. I get bored really, really quickly."
Body issues aside, the Caribbean native says she's never been one to blend into the crowd.
"When I was fourteen and first started going out, I always wanted to be the opposite of everyone else," she said. "So I would go to the club in a polo T-shirt and pants and sneakers and a hat on backward, just so I would not be dressed like other girls. I got desperate for things that weren't available in Barbados."
Now all grown-up, the Grammy-nominated artist says her fashion is still about "risks."
"When I am putting looks together, I dare myself to make something work," she says. "I always look for the most interesting silhouette or something that's a little off, but I have to figure it out. I have to make it me."
