While the singer said she understood why other women were defensive while talking about having babies, she had no such qualms as it's one of her dreams
Rihanna recently opened up about her dream to become a "mother" in the near future and also confirmed rumors about her love life though she refused to name who she was dating.
The 31-year-old singer admitted that while she understood why many female celebrities got defensive about discussing the idea of parenthood, she doesn't mind opening up about her family plans. She added that she did have plans to have children sometime in the future.
"A lot of woman (sic) get very defensive. It's personal, it's our bodies, and of course it's our time, and it's not necessarily everyone's dream to be a mom... but it's mine, so I'm fine," she told Extra.
The "Diamonds" singer is often seen posing on the red carpet with 5-year-old niece Majesty, a telltale sign of her maternal instincts. RiRi also confirmed that she was not single, but refused to name who she was dating.
"Yeah, I'm dating. I'm actually in an exclusive relationship for quite some time, and it's going really well, so I'm happy," she said. For the last two years, she has been linked with Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel, though neither has confirmed their relationship.
Rihanna admitted that she is not only maturing mentally but can also feel getting older physically. "I'm definitely feeling a shift. I'm growing up. There's things that I'm paying attention to that I've never paid attention to," she quipped. "Like supplements. And working out. And hearing about my bones."
Lastly, she confirmed that she turned down the chance to perform in Super Bowl half time show - a coveted gig for many musicians - in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, was was ousted from the NFL after taking a knee during the national anthem before a 2016 game.
"Absolutely. I couldn't dare do that. For what? Who gains from that? Not my people. I just couldn't be a sellout. I couldn't be an enabler. There's things within that organization that I do not agree with at all, and I was not about to go and be of service to them in any way," she said.
