Rihanna Shut Down Pregnancy Rumours In The Most Rihanna Way Possible — Posting A Video In A Bikini While Smoking


Rihanna sees your “omg is she pregnant” tweets and raises you a bikini/smoking Instagram video to shut it back down.

In case you missed it, there’s been widespread speculation across social media that the singer, beauty mogul and fashion designer might be pregnant.

It all seemed to stem from a red carpet interview where she spoke to Essence magazine about black women.

Of course, Rih’s comments about giving birth somehow morphed into confirmation that she was already pregnant. In fact, the whispers reached such a fever pitch that she was asked in interviews on multiple occasions about having children.

When asked why people were so obsessed with that question, Rihanna said: “I don’t know. A lot of women get very defensive because it’s personal. It’s our bodies.”

Accidentally adding fuel to the fire, she added: “It’s not necessarily everyone’s dream to be a mom, but it is mine.”

And, in a video for Vogue, even Anna Wintour straight-up asked Rihanna if she “hoped to have a baby soon”.


“I don’t think about stuff like that,” she laughed in response, clearly taken aback. “But I look forward to all of the pregnancy rumours after this interview.”

Rih also answered a question about designing her own wedding dress which, you guessed it, led to whispers that she might already be engaged to long-term boyfriend Hassan Jameel.

But, possibly suggesting that she wants to shut the rumours down once and for all, Rihanna hopped on Instagram and casually dropped a slow-mo video in nothing but a bikini (and smoking for good measure).

“Rihanna just posted a ‘call me pregnant’ one more time video,” one fan joked as social media erupted with reactions to the clip.

And for those who tried to suggest the video might be a throwback, Rihanna swiftly shut that idea down too.

So I guess that’s that on that!
