Considering Rihanna’s had at least two well-known hospitalizations for fatigue this year, it’s not surprising the singer has lost weight—especially with the grueling tour schedule she’s had.
Rih Rih’s latest hospital stay was just last month after the Met Ball, and in a recent interview with Us Magazine , Rihanna told the mag what led up to her hospitalization:
“I got no sleep [beforehand],” she said. It’s harsh on your body!”
Aside from feeling rundown between recording, touring, making appearances, and filming the movie “Battleship,” there’s another side effect of the ripping and running that Rihanna’s not so pleased with: dropping pounds. She told Us Mag:
“I’m a size 0 — and not happy about it! I went way too far. I prefer myself a bit chunkier. I want my old butt back!”
Saying the word chunky is about as close as Rihanna’s ever been to it, but I get the point about wanting to have her rear-end cushion back. Rihanna’s already slim so the drop in weight probably went unnoticed by most, but I think it’s interesting that a few months ago her father was talking about how she was getting fat and he’s glad she was back down to normal size. It’s a good thing she doesn’t appear to share his hangups about not being super skinny.
Hopefully more than being worried about having her butt back, Rihanna will chill a little bit on the work and the play so she’s not going so hard she keeps sacrificing her health. I’m sure a lot of people wouldn’t mind having her “weight problem” though.
Do you think Rihanna’s gotten too thin?
