Rihanna has blithely revealed that she’s been residing in London for a year – and no-one seemed to realise.
The singer, 31, who originally hails from Barbados, told The New York Times, ‘[I enjoy] walking around the block. When I go walking, I try to keep it a little incognito,’ adding that she finds bank holidays ‘insane’ [in a good way].
On learning this, Brits have gone wild with excitement – with many joining the dots from last week, when the star shared a selfie which had a Sainsbury’s bag for life in the backdrop.

‘It’s sweatpants with pearls, or a masculine denim jacket with a corset,’ she said. ‘I feel like we live in a world where people are embracing every bit of who they are.’
Rihanna — who’s real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty — went on: ‘I’ve been slowly evolving throughout the fashion world. First wearing it, buying it, being recognized for my style and then collaborating with brands. I never just wanted to put my name on something and sell my license. I’m very hands-on, so I wanted to take it slowly and gain respect as a designer.
‘It just changed how I dress in terms of my proportions. You wear what looks good on you and that’s it.

‘I’m thick and curvy right now, and so if I can’t wear my own stuff then, I mean, that’s not gonna work, right? And my size is not the biggest size. It’s actually closer to the smallest size we have: We go up to a (U.S. size 14), We’re saying we can meet you at any one drop that we put out.’
And while her designer title takes on new heights, fans are still pining for new music more than three years after her last album, Anti, hit the shelves.
‘It isn’t in the books right now, but I’m not against it,’ she said of a possible collaboration with Lady Gaga before admitting ‘I don’t see it happening’ when asked if she would work with her ex Drake.
However, she did confirm the next release will be a ‘reggae album’ but she doesn’t have a title yet.
‘So far it’s just been R9, thanks to the Navy. I’m about to call it that probably, ’cause they have haunted me with this “R9, R9, when is R9 coming out?” How will I accept another name after that’s been burned into my skull?’ Rihanna explained.
