Rihanna might just be a stealth superhero because she’s managed to move to London without any of us knowing.
The Work singer has confirmed that she is officially a Londoner after making the big move from the US to the UK earlier this year, which completely explains the Sainsbury’s bag fans spotted in her recent Instagram Story.
In her new interview with the New York Times, Rihanna revealed that she’s now living in London to be closer to her Fenty team who are based in Paris and Italy where the products are manufactured.
But it probably also helps that her boyfriend, Hassan Jameel, lives here too.
The 31-year-old told the publication that one of the things she appreciates most about living in the Big Smoke, is ‘walking around the block’, presumably without being noticed seeing as we never even knew she was our neighbour for two years.
When the reporter revealed their surprise considering they had to shut down part of Shoreditch for the interview, the singer admitted: ‘No. This is not a regular day in London. It’s a bank holiday. Everyone’s out. It’s insane.’
She added: ‘When I go walking, I try to keep it a little incognito.’
In case you were wondering where RiRi’s favourite London haunts are, the popstar revealed there’s a ‘cute little Jamaican market’ near to her home – which frankly could be anywhere in our beautifully multicultural city.
RiRi explained: ‘The world can really make you believe that the wrong things are priority, and it makes you really miss the core of life, what it means to be alive. It could literally be walking outside in the sun.
‘That makes me happy. Like going to the grocery store — you know, there’s a cute little Jamaican market near where I live right now.’
In recent months, reports have claimed that Rihanna and Hassan’s relationship is getting serious.
The Wild Thoughts singer hinted that marriage and babies are on the way when she liked a post discussing the next steps in their two-year relationship.
In the meantime, if RiRi ever wants us to pop round for a cuppa, we could probably clear our schedule.
